Whether you are trying to fit a desk in a tight space or you just want a more modern look, a wall-mounted desk is the perfect option. Not only does a wall-mounted, floating wall desk save previous floor space, but many even offer extra storage that’ll help keep your office space clean and tidy. Of course, if you’d rather keep it sleek and simple, those desks exist, too.

We scrolled through some of our favorite furniture retailers, including Wayfair, Overstock, and Amazon, to curate the best list of wall-mounted desks out there, from vertical, fold-out desks to floating desks made of rich, elegant walnut wood. And don’t worry, we kept price in mind, too — for the most part.
