    How to Create a Desk Out of Kitchen Cabinets


    There are many different ways to create a custom office desk, and one of the most popular and practical options is to use kitchen cabinets. These versatile pieces of furniture can be easily repurposed into office desks by simply removing some or all of their doors, adding shelves and/or drawers, and perhaps installing casters to make it easier to move around. 


    Additionally, kitchen cabinets often come in a variety of sizes and finishes, so it is easy to find ones that are perfect for creating the ideal desk for your space. Once you have found the perfect cabinets for your desk, simply follow these steps to create a functional and stylish workstation:


    • Remove any doors from the cabinet frames, taking care not to damage them in the process. If necessary, you can also remove some or all of the interior shelving as well.
    • Install any necessary drawers or additional storage space. You can either buy prefabricated drawer units to mount inside the cabinets or opt for shallow pull-out drawers that slide along tracks attached to the sides of each cabinet. In addition, consider adding back panels wired with electrical outlets if you plan on using a computer or other heavy equipment at your new desk.
    • Next, you will need to measure and cut a piece of countertop to fit on top of the plywood. You can use any type of countertop material, such as laminate, granite, or even butcher block. Once you have the countertop cut to size, you can attach it to the plywood using screws or nails.
    • Attach caster wheels to the base of each cabinet frame if desired. This will make it easier to move your desk around as needed, and you can always lock the wheels in place when you want your desk to stay put.
