Desks with Hutches: Storage with Style

Whether you are setting up a complete home office, or you just need a place to put your computer, a desk is a multifunctional, useful addition to your home décor. Before even looking for a desk, decide how you plan to use your new desk. A home office will require something that is functional, comfortable, and equipped with storage capabilities.

If you use your home office as a place to store your computer and use it only to pay bills, a smaller desk may be all that you need. Laptop users have a little more leeway in terms of space, so they can choose either a small laptop desk or a larger model if they need more storage. If you have a complete home office, you may need something a little more robust, such as a desk with a hutch for extra storage. When looking for the right desk with hutch combination, consider your needs and the size of your office.

If your style is more traditional, the Arcadia Credenza and Hutch by Aspenhome is a choice that will transform your home. With seven drawers in total, the credenza features three utility drawers and a locking file drawer, a flip-down center drawer, a pullout work surface, two pullout shelves, and one adjustable shelf. It also provides a USB charger, LED touch lighting, and two AC outlets so that you can easily charge phones, laptops, and tablets. The adjustable shelving lets you customize your space so that you get all the storage you need. There’s even a space to keep your printer handy.

If you need something a little more streamlined, the Napa Kneehole Computer Credenza from Aspenhome presents elegant, old-world styling perfect for executive home offices. The desk and hutch give you ample room to store supplies with five drawers, one of which converts to a drop-front, pull-out keyboard tray. The right pedestal of the credenza gives you space to house a printer, CPU, or scanner and the left side offers a locking file drawer and two utility drawers. It also has a USB power hub and three-way touch lit display.

If you prefer something a little more modern, the Viewscape Double Pedestal Credenza and Hutch provides an updated take on classic office space. Sleek and modern, the desk and hutch is computer ready with a removable flip down drawer, a CPU door, and enough room to fit your monitor. It also provides two USB charging stations, three AC outlets, and a locking file drawer so that you can keep important and confidential papers safe. These stylish and practical features help you stay organized and productive.

If you are looking for a solution that will save space and give you plenty of stylish storage, consider a desk with a hutch. A hutch will give you additional vertical space so that you can spread your items out and create a more streamlined storage system.

Décor Essentials for a Relaxing Bedroom

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary, a place where you can relax, revive, and renew. So, of course, the bed is important, but what else do you need to make your bedroom into a retreat that keeps you coming back for more?

Clear the Clutter

This is a refrain you hear over and over, yet it seems difficult to live a clutter-free life. However, the bedroom is probably the most important area to minimalize clutter. If you want to create a calm bedroom, free it of excess stuff. This applies not only to the floor, but also the walls. Select one or two pieces of art for one wall and leave the rest bare. Apply this less-is-more approach to the furnishings and accessories as well. Keeping your bedroom distraction free will help you get a relaxing night’s sleep.

A Noteworthy Night Stand

A bedside table is a key element of bedroom furniture and can help you keep your bedroom free of clutter. It gives you a place to set a glass of water and favorite book – two key elements for comfort and relaxation. The Retropolitan Demilune Nightstand from Hooker Furniture gives you plenty of storage for items you want close to hand but to keep out of sight. It features a power bar with a built-in touch dimmer and a removable shelf for flexible storage.

End-of-Bed Seating

It’s nice to have a place to sit down and remove your shoes and socks in the bedroom. It just makes life a little bit easier. Whether you use a small chair to the side or a bench at the end of the bed, be sure to make room for secondary seating in your bedroom. You can always choose a bench with storage if you just can’t eliminate all your clutter.


Waking up to a room filled with natural lighting can really invigorate your day, so if you have it, take advantage of it. However, it is also important to have dimmed mood lighting at night. You can easily install a dimmer switch to control the lighting. And add a bedside lamp for reading at night.
