A challenge for couples who live in a small spaces is the office. They often lack the space to put two desks. Since most people nowadays rely only on their laptops, an easy solution is a single long desk where you sit side by side. I scoured the Web and discovered 3 potential solutions for you.
One option is to custom built your desk. This is easy since what you basically need is a work surface and legs. You can find a wood desktop at a home improvement store or lumber store; they will cut it to your specifications. Then, simply apply 4 coats of a water-based wood finish like the Varathane Diamond Wood Finish. Ikea’s VIKA MOLIDEN legs will give you a similar look and feel.
Or you may be lucky enough to find a tabletop that fits like a glove. This was the case of the next couple. They simply had to assemble a 78″ tabletop and five VIKA FURUSUND legs that they bought at Ikea. As you can see there is plenty of space to put two iMac with big monitors.
