This depends on whether you have customized your desktop.  Since you are 
asking, I would guess that you haven't.

To reset your desktop to the default:

Close your KDE session.  Then, either from a Virtual Terminal (Console) 
or from a rood KDE session (not all distros allow this) go to:

$HOME/.kde4/share/config or $HOME/.kde/share/config

(depending on your system) and delete files: "plasma*" in that directory.

When you restart your KDE session, the desktop will be restored to its 
defaults state.

NEVER delete $HOME/.kde4 or $HOME/.kde.  This is no longer the thing to 
do since it might contain personal data as well configurations.  If you 
want a complete reset of KDE configurations, delete the "config" 
directory from: $HOME/.kde/share or $HOME/.kde4/share.
