These Foldable Desks Will Turn Your Blank Wall into a Home Office

The throes of Covid-19 and lockdown have made most of us very familiar with the rhythm of working from home. These work-from-home policies have forced living rooms, bedrooms, dining room tables, and even closets to function as makeshift offices. However, balancing your laptops or computers on your kitchen table, on your bed, or coffee table can cause a lot of havoc to your health. Positions that encourage your shoulders up towards your ears or your wrists or elbows excessively flexed may result in more discomfort. And still, desks can be an expensive piece of furniture and this work-from-home situation is probably temporary, so maybe you don’t want — or don’t have the room for — a permanent study corner in your apartment or house.

If you’re looking for creative ways to merge work duties with home life, space-saving alternatives to traditional desks, now’s the time to look for something more stable – not least to save yourself from a host of future back pain issues. Enter the foldable desk.

Foldable desks are ideal for small spaces, especially for those without a dedicated home office if working from home. As well as cleverly folding up after use, fold away desks are compact, neat, and incredibly easily to set up, with little or no assembly required.

And there are other benefits: a folding desk will help to separate work from downtime, as it can be simply packed away at the end of the working day. Some folding desks have built-in shelves for storage, while other available options include wall-mounted folding desks too. Whatever you need, there is plenty on offer to suit every home — and job.

Folding desks are currently flying off the shelves, so you’ll have to be quick if you want one for your home. Here we round up some practical folding desks you can buy right now.
