Jumpstart Your Day: 5 Space-Saving Desks We'd Want in Our Dream Homes

These are perfect for compact units and tiny work areas


From choosing space-saving beds and working with creative solutions like built-in storage, we've definitely come a long way in terms of maximizing small spaces. Aside from investing in unique transforming furniture like sofas and beds with hidden compartments, we can't help but dream about desks that we can fit in compact units, too!

These picks are perfect if you often work at home or would love to have a mini area for your crafts and hobbies, too:

Is it a shelf or a slim desk? We say it's both! The Helix Acacia Desk features three fixed acacia veneer shelves stained in a warm brown tone while the frame highlights a carbon powdercoat finish. This piece is wall-mounted and has legs with built-in levelers.

It can help you separate the living area from the rest of the home. If you're not too keen on using it as part of your tiny home office, it can serve as an organizing station for books, gadgets, decor, and other knickknacks.

Floating desks are nice to look at and can help you save on floor space. This must-have by Prepac can be mounted at any height using a metal hanging rail system. Aside from considering it as part of your work area, you can also have one by the foyer (for catchalls and decor) and the kitchen, too! We especially love its side compartments and top shelf that can accommodate more essentials.

Now you see it, now you don't! The Adams Wall-Mounted Floating Desk by Wildon Home features a cabinet that opens up to reveal a pull-down desk with hinged legs. Aside from giving the owner a space where he or she can work, it also has shelves, a corkboard, and a bill organizer that can help keep clutter at bay.

RL Tip: Consider adding this piece to your bedroom (for your reading time) or in the kitchen as extra prep area!

A drawer and desk in one, the Minimal Small Floating Desk by Orange 22 can be mounted anywhere around the home. It can double as a shelf—if you think that a corner is a bit bare, use the surface to display prints, decor, and accessories.

The built-in drawer can be used if you want to set up your laptop and get some work done. Those who plan to add it to a home office can place the computer on top and use the drawer to manage papers, essentials, and hide some unsightly cords.

This floating desk is available in different finishes. Click here for more details.
