With work-at-home jobs and virtual school on the rise, finding room in the home for desks can be challenging. Apartment dwellers are especially disadvantaged when it comes to space.

Utilizing unexpected areas and corners on walls is a necessary solution. Desks that fold into the wall give you the benefit of folding up the desk when it’s not in use. Some even have built-in storage.
Floating Desks and Desks that Fold into the Wall
You’ll notice the various desks featured below. Desks that fold up into the wall are sometimes referred to as floating desks. However, be sure to check whether the floating desk you prefer does fold-up. Some don’t. Below you’ll see both styles.
Location Ideas for Floating Desks
When children share a room, a floating desk is a simple space solution. Even if the desk doesn’t fold up into the wall, a wall desk can serve as an alternate solution for an end-table on the other side of twin beds. Instead of a nightstand on each side of the beds, or even in-between them, put a wall desk with a chair.
Staircase landings sometimes offer extra space. You’ll occasionally see stairway landings with bench seats. A stairway landing with a window is an ideal option for a floating desk. For slightly smaller landings, a desk that folds into the wall would be the wiser choice.
Some homes have odd corners and nooks that don’t seem to fit any type of furniture. Makes these spots usable with a folding wall desk.
Family rooms, media rooms, and recreation rooms are ideal spots for wall desks. Where there’s an open corner, a floating desk can work. For larger rooms, install several.
Under a Staircase
Underneath a staircase is often unused and wasted square footage. Most staircases have enough room for a full desk. For smaller areas, a folding wall desk is ideal. Instead of one large desk under the stairs, create a homework area with several floating desks for all the kids.
