Which one do you   like

Still having trouble choosing?    Don’t worry as the following buying tips will help you narrow down   your options:

Room or office   decor

A floating desk should blend in with your office or room decor if   you’re not buying new furniture.    Mixing wood surfaces gives you a look that is pieced together when   compared to a polished, professional style.    Check that your favorite desk from the list is in a style and color to   match what it already has.


Remember that the volume of work and projects you take on will   increase as your career progresses.    Therefore, plan for storage in advance.  If you have plenty of space nearby that you   can reserve for a file system or additional shelving, your desk can be a   compact desk with little to no storage space.    However, you may need your desk for multiple tasks.  In that case, you need a floating desk   design with deep filing drawers, a keyboard tray, and a shelving system.  Remember that your wall-mounted computer   desk is not only your work surface, but your display area as well.  So opt for an additional stable with   various cubes, open shelves, and pin boards for display and additional   storage.

Also, make sure that everyday items can be easily accessed.  A pencil drawer is the most basic feature   of floating desks, but you need easy access to a few more tools.  It would make sense to make the elements   that are often required visible and accessible.

Type and size

There are several types of floating wall tables.  From the list above, it can be seen that   your most common options are straight floating tables and corner units.  Which type is best for you will depend on   your requirements, the size you can add for the new space, and your   budget.  It’s important that you don’t   get a large floating desk if you don’t have enough space for it.  The most common mistakes people make in   getting floating desks are overestimating the size of their space and   underestimating the size of the desk they choose.  When the desk walks in they are shocked as   if the desk contains steroids!

When looking for the best floating desk,   consider the following points:

  • Straight desks are rectangular in shape and are anchored to walls   for stability and durability.  The   amount of paperwork they can hold depends on the number of slots that are   added to the units.  They are practical   because they take up little space.  If   you choose to buy this type of floating desk, be sure to double check the   dimensions of the device as this type of floating desk comes in many   different sizes.

  • Corner desks are great for saving space as they fit in virtually   any corner.  They are ideal for small   offices and residential environments.    This particular type is preferred by most of the people because the   work area is concentrated and the rest of a given space is kept free of   furniture.
