Wall Mounted Computer Desks

A popular work space option for homes and businesses are wall-mounted desks, which can maximize space and reduce clutter. They're convenient for students, telecommuters, offices, and personal computer use, and are available from Staples® in a variety of colors and materials to match existing furniture such as bookcases and filing cabinets.

Selecting Wall-Mounted Desks
When looking for a writing table, remember to make sure that your monitor, tablet, or laptop, plus any other essentials will fit. There are workstations that have roll-out shelves of horizontal or vertical design, which are either stationary or fold up into a lockable cabinet. Decide if you prefer a tabletop surface or one that includes shelves, dividers, or cubby holes, or if you'd like a floating desk that can also double as a small dining or side table. If you like some variety, consider a desk that has an adjustable height or is part of a movable bracket or shelf system.

Appeal of Wall-Mounted Desks
These desks are a good alternative to the typical heavy piece of furniture that cuts into floor space. It frees up room for you to stretch out your feet toward the wall, and you can use decorative baskets or bins for extra storage. A wall-mounted desk lets you choose convenient, ergonomic spaces to work in. Place the desk where the room receives the most natural light, or use it as a focal point or an accent within a room. They're ideal for alcove and corner spaces that sometimes become unused, or to help make the most of a kid's room that is either shared or already amply decorated.

Another benefit to this kind of set up is that it allows you to mount the desk higher on the wall to use as a standing desk or affix it lower down so it's the correct height to use with a chair. Should you eventually stop needing the desk as a work space, it can be utilized as a knickknack or plant shelf or even re-purposed as a backdrop for unusual sculptures. Floating desks come with a large variety of finishes, including unfinished wood, recycled materials, and steel. Designs accommodate minimalist, contemporary, or industrial decor styles, providing plenty of scope to pick the wall-mounted desk that blends into your space.

Are Wall-Mounted Desks Easy to Install?
It depends. They need to be secured through studs inserted in the wall, so if you are not familiar or comfortable with doing a self-install, have a friend, family member, or professional assist. Removing a floating desk can present challenges and may also require some repair to the wall, so choose the spot carefully.

Are Wall-Mounted Desks Safe to Lean On?
As long as they have been properly installed, wall-mounted desks are safe to lean your arm or hand on, either continuously while working or occasionally if needed.

Do Wall-Mounted Desks Hold a Lot of Weight?
Consult the weight specifications for your desk to know how much weight it can support. Certain brands can hold up to 100 pounds, which is useful for children's desks as kids tend to lean on desks as they stand.
