You want a desk from the future? Well you are in for a rude awakening.

While these desks are not floating like a hoverboard, they are floating in the sense that they are attached to the wall. Still cool.

The only rule here is that they can’t touch the ground! If you aren’t sold on a floating desk quite yet, be sure to check out other desks types.

Our Top 3 Picks for the Best Floating Computer Desk

Why Floating Desks? 

Why would you want a floating desk vs. a typical desk? There are many different reasons. For starters, space. A floating desk, or wall-mounted desk, allows for more space both visually and logistically.

When your desk is mounted on the wall, you have more space to use the rest of the room. Visually, when you look at a room, a floating desk can help free up visual space and make the room appear larger and more inviting.

This is perfect for small house living or rooms that serve more than one purpose, such as a guest room or family room. 

Another reason someone might jump on the floating desk bandwagon is the ability to customize! A floating desk usually allows the owner to mount it at different heights. This is perfect for those who would prefer a standing posture over a sitting one. It also makes room for all different chairs.

Want to write on your blog on a barstool? Mount a floating desk. Want to be able to walk around your customized camper and also use your PC as a TV? Buy a mountable desk. Other reasons you may want to try a mounted desk is the desire to add a hutch above or beside.

Instead of being stuck with a one-size-fits-all desk, a floating desk opens up your world to many possibilities. 

Did we mention they can also be a bit easier on the wallet?

This is another nice desk that can blend into many types of styles. 

Mount it with other shelves to help it blend into your decor when not in use. 

Simple and to the point, yet it can still hide all your paperwork and clutter when guests come over.

The drawer also has a fun gold accent. You can access this storage when it’s up and out of the way. Perfect for remotes or pens. 

You may also be able to hide the fact that you still love to play Toon Town on private servers.

Ok so this one might still count as stylish. It certainly has a rustic look going which is warm and inviting.

You don’t have to live forever alone with room for another chair on the opposite side, for your S.O. or your cat.
