The Best Wood Desk Organizers To Conquer The Mess

We Actually Need A Wood Desk Organizer Like These.

Okay, we lied. There are several – but how could we choose the best when they all look so great? If you want to upgrade your office, get your workspace more organized, or change up your look, these wooden organizers are a great addition.

The nice thing about wooden organizers is that they have a more natural feel. This can often create a softer decor – if that’s the look you’re going for. Don’t forget – these organizers pack storage space so they are also super functional. Before you buy, let’s dive into what you should consider.

Things to Consider When Buying a Wood Desk Organizer

Desk Space Available. Pretty simple – but how big is your desk or area that needs a wooden shelf/organizer? How large is the organizer you want to buy? There are a few on this list that can be adjusted to fit any space and there are a few that are solid little organizers that can work almost anywhere. Have a think about the space you have when you buy!

Style of Your Room. What’s the overall feel/style of your room? Are the walls light or dark? What’s the colour of the furniture – mainly the desk? Lots of the below wood desk organizers can be purchased in different colors so have a think about the overall room style you want to go for!

Functionality. What are you using the desk organizer for? What do you primarily have to store? What kind of work do you do? If you’re a student, you might have lots of paper assignments, notebooks, and larger files. This might call for a larger organizer that has upright storage available. If you’re more technical – maybe you have lots of pens, pencils, ruled instruments, etc. This would mean that you need more little drawers or a specific holder for your different smaller office items.

Here are our picks for five very stylish, functional wood desk organizers for your workspace. If you need function meets style, these organizers are for you!

Vintage Torched Wood Standing Organizer

For a classic look that’s entirely real wood, this standing organizer is great for a desk or dorm room where you have limited space. It’s got a small footprint meaning the base isn’t that large but it’s very stable.

The two tiny drawers make storing things a breeze but there’s plenty of standing space for pens, papers, and bigger folders in the back.
