Whether you’re routinely working from home or just need a place to set down a book, these 15 wall mounted desks are a super smart and ultra modern option. Storage space might be scant, so be sure to have some workspace organization tricks up your sleeve and seek creative solutions for extra space saving, like mounting floating shelves nearby. Plus most of these could be positioned at the proper height to make your very own standing desk.
