Do you often bump into the same inanimate object before realizing it’s the edge or corner of your desk? Does it feel like the room doesn’t have a lot of space anymore? It may be time to think about DIY wall mounted desks!

Whether the desk is for casual use or a professional one, the need for a space-saving, wall-mounted desk sounds like a great idea. A desk decreases clutter in the surroundings and increases productivity.  Not only is it DIY, but it also saves the time required to move the desk when it’s in the way, to make room for any other recreational activity extra space requires.

Like a Harry Potter fan club meeting or a house party! Here are a few ideas to declutter and invite a bit of organization into your space:  

1. Simple

This type of desk is quaint, and perfect for placing all those books you have piled up but can’t even see over the top of. The multiple shelves are like cubby holes, allowing maximum storage within a small amount of space. People who bought it are already loving it.

Did a briefcase suddenly pop up in the room? Nope! That’s a retro-style wall mounted desk! Perfect for on and off uses, or for people who know for sure that they will only be using the desk periodically, like an episode of the Flash.

It definitely saves space because its foldable and isn’t prone to damage due to our clumsiness of hitting the corners of the desk with our feet.

3. Mounted desk- Transformers style

No, seriously, it’s a semi-table. This kind of table is foolproof, especially for kids, since most of them refuse to sit in one place to do homework.

Not only is it foldable as a semicircle, but the quality of the wood is strong and durable. It is also mounted in a way that still allows us to keep a few objects on it while folded. 

12. The “Bigweld” Desk

Remember the really round, jolly robot from Robots? This “Bigweld” style desk is not only practical and compact, but it’s also fun to sit at and work! Its color combo brings a sort of jolly and happiness to the atmosphere, and we must remember that while working to be productive, keeping the environment light helps hone our focus.

13. Is this from the Victorian Era?

This beautifully sculpted item looks like it was plucked straight out of the Victorian Era. The desk itself is small and solid, but the shelves are a great addition to the rather photogenic piece. The large, horizontal area allows more items on the desk to be placed at one level so that they can be reached easily.

Although the usual, run of the mill desks is a household staple, it is better to step out of our comfort zone and go for these diverse options of wall-mounted desks. Depending on your needs, whether it is cute and casual, regal, or just plain durable everyone will find a desk that suits them.
