Pros

As simple as it looks, the desk is very elegant and a perfect addition to any living room, study or even bedroom. It has an incredible glow which makes it look way more expensive than it actually is. This glow is attributed to by the high-end paint used in the finishing. The available color combinations are cool and a fit in various color themes. Besides, you get to choose which tone you want for the room; whether cool or warm, either of which is available within the color combinations. Even though the material used in its construction is not real wood, it is hard to tell especially because of the fineness of the desk’s textures.

About the solidity, this desk is pretty robust and hardly wobbles, hence highly durable. Unless subjected to way too much weight than the recommended amount, the desk serves satisfactorily.

The desk is delivered very fast with proper packaging and all the parts available, in good shape and well labeled. The instructions provided are also clear and easy to follow. For this reason, the assembly is quite easy to follow, and all you have to do is lay out all the parts and arrange them in order. Most customers, even those with no experience with the task, took between utmost four hours putting it together, which is pretty fast compared to most desks that require assembling.

Cons

The drawers are very small and can only hold small accessories and pens, which was a disappointment to most customers who expected actual drawers. Also, they do not align perfectly with the keyboard tray, and therefore, the drawers hang a little bit lower, and if you look keenly, you can see the somewhat weird appearance it creates. During the assembly, most customers had trouble fitting in the drawers in their slots, and besides, unlike other parts, some drawer hardware was not labeled with part numbers which made it even more difficult.

The knee space is also not spacious enough, especially for someone with long legs and you will keep knocking the keyboard tray, making it more prone to damages. Also, if you have a big office chair, then you will have trouble fitting it under the desk.

This desk has an unfinished back which is not mentioned in the specifications. For this reason, you cannot set the desk in the middle of the room; rather you have to place it by the wall where its back is not left out in the open. One customer had to find some paint and finish it on his own.

However, apart from the issues with the drawers, a small knee space, and an unfinished back, there are no major issues that can make the desk less functional.

Conclusion

This desk is highly rated and has impeccable customer reviews. Its simple design is perfect for someone with less elaborate taste. The fact the desk can be used in either a traditional setting or a modern one is amazing and makes it more preferable. Besides, the desk is very sturdy and is capable of years of service before damaging. The finishing is also fantastic, and so are the colors which you can comfortably fit in your study without worrying about causing unnecessary pop.

With just a simple click, you get not only a storage place but also a valuable home décor at a very affordable price.
