With living space being at a premium, you want to make as much use of your space as possible. Here is one way to save space.
No matter if you have a floating desk built to suit your needs, or you order one online or build your own, it makes a perfect space saving place for the kids to do their homework or to sort your bills, or any other everyday work that requires a desk.
Floating desks come in a large variety of sizes, shapes, colors and styles. The average one you find online requires assembly and needs to be mounted to the wall. If you have one custom-built, it will usually be installed for you.
Things to consider:
1- Do you want a desk with a fold up front (desk area) or open front?
2- Do you need adjustable shelves?
3- How large of a work area do you need?
4- How much weight will be on the desk?
5- Will you be using a wall-mounted monitor that you will need your desk to fit around?
A few notes on building your own floating desk for The DIYer’s out there.
1- Don’t skimp: Use a good quality shelving wood. Using cheaper wood can cause warping and sagging in the desk over time.
2- Take your time: Whether you're putting on the finishing coat or putting in the first screw, taking your time will help ensure a good final product.
3- Plan for more: When building your desk, allow for a little more space, storage, etc. than you think you’ll need. That little extra will prove useful down the line.
4- Research: Everyone's needs are different. Research your desk to make sure you’re building a desk that will suit your needs both now and in the future.
