Folding Wall Mounted Office Computer Desk Wall Unit For Small Spaces

Updated on May 21, 2014

The traditional kind of office desk most of us are used to is the typically large bulky wooden monstrosity with a set of drawer on one or both sides. Smaller computer workstations are available but these are still relatively large especially when you live in an an apartment or need some extra room in a cramped office. That's where folding wall mounted desks come into play. These small wall desks mount directly onto a wall to provide a useful writing table or wall mount laptop desk without taking up a lot of permanent space. When not needed, they fold up flat against the wall and resemble an attractive wood cabinet. If you are looking for a small desk for apartment living or need a foldable desk for your office then these are the ideal solution. The rest of this lens looks at a variety of different folding wall desks and other small collapsible desks for apartments and small living spaces.

When you need to a convenient flat surface for writing or typing, you simply open the cupboard dooor downwards to provide a neat little writing table or wall mounted laptop computer desk.

Suspended Wall Mounted Desks Without Legs

The second style of wall mountable desks are a lot like a traditional desk but without the legs or bulk box storage drawers. These are not only space saving in the their design but are also very visually appealing and become an attractive focal point in any room them appear in.

This style of desk is fixed in directly to the wall which means you get the same flat desktop surface but without the legs and drawers taking up visual space. Whilst this style of desk mounted on a wall really takes up much of the same amount of space as full-sized office desk, it visually opens up a room making a cramped space look a lot more roomy.

Metal Wall Desks For Industrial and Commercial Environments

Wall mount wood desks make an attractive addition to your home or office but may not stand up to the rigors of a busy workplace. A metal wall mount desk is often a better solution for environments like hospital wards, lab and bsuy area where a wooden computer desk wall unit might get knocked about, dinged, dented and chipped. The following are top rated metal wall desks.

Foldable Office Desks

If a wall mounted office desk is not the solution you are looking for, but need something a little larger which still doesn't take up a lot of space permanently, then a folding office desk for small spaces might be what you are looking for. Foldable desks allow you to make more use of the space you have by providing collapsible desk which folds up to half its size when not in use. If you are not someone who needs a permanent desk ready to use at all times then this is a great way to still get all the functionality you need without giving up a large chunk of your home.
