wood desks for the home and office work

Writing table or Secretary desk ? 

The word "desk" refers to an office table with legs and storage space under or over the top (drawers, pull-outs, shelves, over-cabinet, etc.).

A desk is primarily used for writing, or for placing a laptop and/or monitor on the tabletop, even if it means storing the PC tower underneath. 

The secretary is a cabinet-type piece of furniture with a closed back and sides. It houses a central niche with a flap door and often drawers or doors in, above or below the niche.

The unfolded flap lets you write directly on it, or place your laptop on it to work. You can then store your computer and accessories inside the niche. Drawers or doors above and below the niche can be used to store larger files and notebooks.

The question when choosing between these 2 types of desks is: do I need extra storage for my work stuff, or do I prefer an uncluttered space during my work session?
