More and more people are starting businesses and side-hustles or opting to work from home (at least part of the time).
When you live and work in a small space it’s important to be able to concentrate on the tasks at hand without sacrificing comfort.
That means you’ll want a workspace that’s big enough for all the tools you need to accomplish your daily goals, small enough to fit in a small room or corner, and comfortable enough to ensure that you’ll work without feeling cramped.
That’s a tall order!
Wall-mounted desks are brilliant space-saving options.
Okay, I’ll confess…I live in a small house and my desk is in my laundry room. I guess it’s supposed to be the counter where you fold clothes when you take them from the dryer but it’s my desk! It is wall-mounted so I’m counting it as a space-saving desk choice for this post!
I’m on the road for another couple of weeks but I’ll post a picture of it when I get home.
My 4 Best Space Saving Choices
#1 – By Kovot
This clever rustic wall desk is on my list because it would be ideal for a dorm room or a studio apartment where floor space is especially minimal. It could function as a small table, as well.
There are three shelves for books or office supplies. Just pull up a chair when you’re ready to work and you’re all set!
This desk is constructed of solid wood with metal supports so it’s sturdy.
It has three shelves for organizing books and other supplies. When the desk is folded up, there’s a handy chalkboard.
It’s rated 4 stars by verified purchasers on Amazon. If you’re an Amazon Prime member there’s no shipping charge – Bonus!
The Willingham is an attractive desk with a fold-down desktop. It’s just the right size for a laptop.
Its features include four compartments, an angled paper organizer, a corkboard, one drawer, and a clean-looking white laminate finish. It’s also available with a mahogany veneer for a sophisticated look.
The Willingham is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars and there are 85 positive reviews on Amazon! You can mount it at whatever height works for you.
One satisfied buyer mounted it at a standing height but is looking for a stool to use with it, as well. I think that’s a brilliant idea!
#3 Prepac Floating Desk
This might just be my favorite of all. It’s a laptop desk with a pull-out keyboard drawer. I don’t have a separate keyboard but I do use a mouse and mousepad and that drawer would work great for that.
I love that the side compartment has two adjustable shelves. You can position them at the spacing that works best for your books and other supplies.
Hidden wire management is integrated into the design of the desk, keeping cables and wires out of sight and out of mind. (From Product Description on Amazon)
This white laminate is nice but it’s also is available in an espresso finish.
It has a 4.3 out of 5-star rating.
Thinking Outside the Box!
One reviewer said she mounted a mirror where the computer would go and she’s using it as a makeup station…thinking out the box!
#4 Southern Enterprises Corner Desk
This transitional style desk in an espresso finish is a great option if your only available space is a corner.
Although it’s just 11″ tall, it has a generous workspace and features 1 drawer, 3 fixed shelves and includes 1 cord management opening.
From the Amazon Product Description:
Corner your small space home office concerns once and for all, with this wall mount desk. Convenient corner-hugging silhouette and small profile fit into the snuggest of spaces, while rich espresso hue goes anywhere.
Three shelves and a drawer tidy up loose papers, accessories, and small electronics; broad laptop desk or workspace make task time a breeze. Work smart, not hard with this transitional wall mount floating desk in any, or every, room in your home.
This must be a fairly new Amazon product because there are no reviews, yet. If you decide this is the right choice for you, I hope you do leave a review. Reviews are so helpful when ordering online.
Well, there you have it…four excellent choices if you need a desk for a small space.
