With so many people working from home these days, it is important to try and find a way to fit your work life into your home life.
If you often use a laptop on your couch or desk, then a laptop desk can be really handy.
We recently wrote about how helpful a wireless keyboard and laptop can be if you connect your computer to your TV. It gives you the opportunity to sit up to 30 feet from the TV without having to worry about annoying cables, and you can move freely around the room. But if you don’t have a convenient desk or coffee table nearby it can be a little awkward to use a full size mouse and keyboard.

This is where a laptop desk can come in really handy. But not every laptop desk can fit a full sized keyboard and a mousepad, so it’s important to find one that is large enough, like this King’s Brand foldable, adjustable laptop table.
I initially bought this laptop desk because it was the only one that I could find that was reasonably priced, but was also large enough for a full-sized keyboard and a standard mousepad. Technically it is still even a little small for that, but I usually just tuck about a half-inch of the mousepad under the keyboard.
As you can see from the image above, the desk has folding legs that can go around your legs if you are sitting on the floor or laying down, but they can also be folded flat if you want to place it on top of another table or a TV tray. I actually use it on top of a TV tray a lot, because regular TV trays aren’t wide enough for the mouse and keyboard.
The tray is broken up into two sections, the larger of which you can raise and lower to adjust the angle of the tray. The larger section also has a black rubber stopping strip that will prevent your keyboard or laptop computer from sliding forward. And, speaking of laptops, this is also a good solution if you need an option on which you can place a laptop computer and a mouse, since a lot of people still prefer a traditional mouse over their laptop’s trackpad.
This laptop desk tends to go in and out of stock pretty often, so you may want to check for other options from different brands.
