The purpose of a desk is to keep you organized and neat – so why is it that desks so often become an endless pit of random crap? We end up using our desk chairs to pile dirty or clean clothes (or maybe both), the surfaces usually get cluttered with pens and notebooks and books, and the drawers are typically a giant mess filled with little things that have no other home.
If you think you can't fit a workspace into your tiny apartment, think again. The diminutive proportions and clever designs of these 14 desks makes them perfect for small spaces. No matter how limited the space available, you're sure to find something here that's a perfect fit.
One of our favorite space-saving tricks for a small apartment is the wall-mounted desk. A wall-mounted desk is an easy way to add a work area that takes up a fraction of the space occupied by a traditional floor-bound desk — and it results in a lot less visual clutter, too, a consideration nearly as important as floor space. Some desks even fold into the wall so they take up no space at all. We've rounded up a few of our favorites.
