Corrall the Clutter: Wall Mounted Desks for Computers

These floating computer desks double the storage with combined hutches

When real estate is at a premium in your home, floating (wall-mounted) desks in white, black and espresso make great sense for computer use. But setting up a workspace needs to ideally house your computer screen, keyboard or laptop and neatly house your important paperwork.

The size of your desk should be large enough to accommodate everything you need. Remember if the desk is lacking in any way, you'll see it in stacks of paper and stray documents, despite your best efforts. If the space isn't there, it's desk 'stuff' overload.

Be as generous as you're able with the desk and your space allowance.

These modern floating desks fold out for comfort and added workspace then conveniently fold in when it' s time to close up shop.

For Added Storage in Small Spaces, Go Up: Floating Computer Desk With Added Storage Hutch

Working from home always necessitates more storage area for all that paperwork, especially if you're working in a small space. It's always best to 'go up' versus spreading outward with clutter and supplies. Adding an attractive hutch in a complementary finish helps keep your room's decor cohesive while adding much needed storage.

Keep things neat with desk tidies and memo boards. This floating computer desk has other, optional pieces that look much like furniture (as seen in the image). The credenza can double as file cabinet and dresser if need be. Important reference books and manuals can be arranged on the matching chest and topped off with matching bookends.

The fully-functional arrangement here is neat, attractive and uses minimal floor space.

A little creativity can serve you well when space is at a premium

Instead of piecing together your home office bit by bit, you might save time and money by combining the floating computer desks for small spaces and bedrooms here with their matching storage hutch in cappuccino or a fresh white. You can easily convert a free wall to a fully functioning home office by pairing the units with a cool office chair.

I'm not a big fan of wheeled office chairs on hard floor surfaces; it seems I'm always 'on the roll!' Not good when I'm in the middle of a project and the chair necessitates I plant both feet on the floor ready to do battle in rubber-soled shoes. The swivel chair may be your answer if you share my sentiments; it's adjustable and moves freely but stays planted to the floor. It's attractive, too.

Keeping Your Small Space Cohesive

When space is an issue, having the option to set up a work station wherever ~ and whenever ~ you need it is a real boon. It always helps, too, if it's attractive.

Small spaces necessitate that each furniture piece work well together. It's best to have similar finishes to avoid clashing and the smaller pieces and avoid competition with more expensive furniture. A smooth visual transition as you scan the room is your best plan. Too, try to keep your space furnished in one genre ~ all modern or all traditional, etc.

This unimposing portable desk is ideal for modern decor. Its smooth lines and simple design make it an easy candidate for your small space. The simpler the better. I love it!

Fold-Down Wall Desk for Small Kitchen & Bedroom Spaces

with a chalkboard for reminders

The higher you go with your storage needs, the smarter. Going up prevents the urge to spread out with office clutter. 

Having shelves for extra storage provides ample room to appoint lower shelves for your more important, oft used supplies and references.

Go up with the least-used accoutrements and decorative pieces.

The chalkboard on this quaint not-so-modern --okay, it's not modern--is just plain fun but every bit as functional and saves on wall space, to boot.

My team and I recently took an interest in your blog as we feel that our product may resonate with your readers. We want to introduce you to the StandCrafted desk, our new minimalist, modular, wall-mounted approach to the traditional standing desk. We have an approaching launch on Kickstarter (already approved) on Monday morning November 16th. Our page ( (still in preview) has a video and in-depth description on why StandCrafted is unique.

We think StandCrafted could be a great addition to this article or these reasons:

Modern and Minimalist Design - Our design process centered around producing an aesthetically pleasing desk that was truly functional.

Adjustable Heights - Users have the option of operating the desk in a variety of standing, leaning, or sitting positions throughout the day. All you need to do is move the modules to your desired height.

Highly Configurable - All modules (monitor, keyboard, table, laptop) can instantly be moved, added or changed as needed. And any new module will be interoperable with the current core design.

Multiple Use Cases - This desk is great in a variety of settings, be it home, office, medical, educational, industrial, or retail.

Huge Space and Cost Savings - Without the need for a traditional desk, a significant amount of real estate can be repurposed or saved.

Clear Workspace - No clutter equates to better focus and mental clarity. Keep your workspace free of distractions and your brain will thank you!

Made in the USA - The desk is fully sourced and manufactured in the USA to minimize the risks associated with outsourcing that many other crowdfunded projects face.

And Terrific Health Benefits...

If you’re interested, please let me know how I can make the writing process easy for your team. Several high res photos can be found here:
