Hi guys,

I'm in need of a new computer desk. Not only for the fact this one is full of scuffs but it is just not big enough anymore.

I'm looking for some sort of desk between with these specifications:

Height - around 70cm

Width - around 60-70cm

Length - 150-180cm

Colour - Black

As you can see I am looking for a fairly long desk.

I have spent a while looking but I just can't find one that fits my needs and price range which is up to £200.

The best I have found up to now is this from IKEA ikea.com/gb/…56/

It is a good price, very basic but it has a good length which is what I want. The problem is they charge £35 shipping. I don't want to pay £35 for shipping. That's a lot of money for shipping.

I have looked everywhere I can think of...

Anybody have any suggestions?


I got a Piranha desk which I'm pleased with (I can only use a limited amount of space length-wise as it's in a corner of my living room). Might be worth a look? piranhafurniture.com/off…ks/?rpp=9&rpp=all&sort[purchases]=desc#product-3476914

Mine is similar to this: piranhafurniture.com/tet…ut/

These are the ones that come up within your specifications width, length, height wise: piranhafurniture.com/off…ks/?keyword=&price[min]=44&price[max]=135&width[min]=0&width[max]=170&height[min]=0&height[max]=75&length[min]=0&length[max]=73&rpp=all&sort[purchases]=desc#product-3476914

Also, Amazon Warehouse sometimes has desks at silly prices. I saw one for around £16 and it was £70 full price! Try "workstation", "office desk", "computer desk". Can't see anything on there at the moment, though.

We love our Ikea desk/table-this one with the curve shape is great for space either side of the monitor m.ikea.com/gb/…90/

Ikea always charge for delivery-either accept it, shop elsewhere or find a friend with a van...

£85.94 delivered, gloss white: amazon.co.uk/IND…I0Q Size: 75h x 120w x 70d cm

I bought one when I moved into new house, it was bought from a charity furniture business called furniture plus, they usually take donations from homes and local businesses. My desk was an ex council office desk, it is 1800 wide, very sturdy and very well made, I reckon a good few hundred pounds worth.

I got it for £30.

Just thought, I'd share, as there may be similar places near to you

I would say the Ikea ones were the nicest\sturdiest desks I saw when looking for a desk recently , unfortunately even the smaller ones were too big for me but as I can see you are after a large desk so defiantly check ikea

Thank's for all the answers, definitely helpful!

You should look at specialist office suppliers. They have a good range of quality and sizes, usually deliver free if they are near to you and not as expensive as you might think.

Here are a couple I know of:

New & Used: Andrews Office Furniture

Used: Brothers
