One of the best space-saving tricks for a small place is the wall mounted desk. A wall-mounted desk is an easy way to add a work area that takes up a fraction of the space occupied by a traditional floor desk — and it results in a lot less visual clutter, too, a consideration nearly as important as floor space. Some desks even fold into the wall so they take up no space at all. Even if you were to purchase a wall mounted desk, you’re still looking at approximately $150…so why not make this one yourself and spend the money on something else you really need!
When most of us start shopping for a desk we have a tendency to either look on Craigslist or go all out and buy a new one. They’re like cars, they depreciate the minute they leave the store! Large desks take up an enormous amount of space and this wall desk allows us to have more space and still get the work surface we need.
There is the need for extra space in every home; no matter what the size of the home, the ability to maximize space is always a good thing. Many homeowners are moving into a small home from a large home and it can be quite frustrating. Many people are considering the tiny homes and are usually at crossroads on what to bring with them and what to dispose off. So whether you have just moved out and you’ve moved to a neighborhood where the homes are smaller, adjusting to a small space can be quite frustrating.
Sure, you could work from your sofa, but only if you intend to stand up and walk about every 20 minutes or so. Working on the couch with a laptop on your knees for any length of time is going to result in neck and back issues.
