Wall Mounted Desks in 2021:
How to: Assemble
In order to start assembling your wall mounted desk, first and foremost you have to find the diagram that comes folded inside the packaging. Make sure to take some time and digest what the diagram is really telling you to do with your wall mounted desk brackets, wall mounted desk hutch and all other parts of your wall mounted desk.
If you understood the diagram correctly, you will learn that you have to install all the hardware before trying to mount it onto the wall. And the first pieces of hardware that will have to be installed are the nails of all different shapes and sizes. These will also be found inside the packaging of your wall mounted PC desk. Slowly as you do this, you should see the entire desk coming together as one assemble instead of a bunch of separate pieces of wood only. If you see this happening gradually, over time, then it means that you are on the right track!
A tip we have for you is to place your wall mounted desk system on its back in order to ease the assembling process! It will be especially more comfortable for you when you use the director screws in order to secure the nails on the side.
Another rule of thumb for you should be that you should not be in a hurry to get it mounted onto the wall. Until you are not 100% sure that it has been assembled completely and it fully ready to be placed on your beloved wall, do not even try to check its placement or try to mount it in pieces. It should be one complete piece before you mount it.back to menu ↑
How to: Mount
One of the most important factors when adjusting your wall mounted desk with drawers onto the wall is to keep an optimal distance between the wall mounted office desk and the ground. When you build your own wall mounted desk, you have the luxury of deciding precisely where the desk will be mounted.
So, here is our secret tip for you; when you mount your desk, the wall mounted desk shelf right at the bottom needs to be at least 70mm above the ground. As we mentioned earlier, when you build your own wall mounted desk, you can place it at an optimal level. This means that it should not be so high that you have a hard time adjusting your chair to be able to reach the wall mounted desktop computer table And at the same time, it should not be so close to the ground that your knees cannot properly fit under the wall mounted desktop.
Once you have the placement figured out, you will have to drill the initial holes into the wall. You will have to refer to your diagram again, but most likely your wall mounted office desk will need about five holes drilled in. That too, before you mount anything at all. The wall mounted desk brackets will go first and then the wall mountain pulls down desk.
Do not forget to cover the drill holes with vinyl stickers at the very end. Just because you build your own wall mounted desk, does not mean it does not have to look as if it was built to perfection! If you follow the diagram step-by-step and make sure to not miss even the simplest of instructions, i.e, installing one singular tiny nail in its place, then it is a guarantee that it will be mounted perfectly and will not cause you any problems in the future.back to menu ↑
How to: Use
Now, at this point, you must be thinking, hey! It is a desk after all, so, why do we need to know how to use it? Well, we promised you an ultimate guide regarding wall mounted office desks and that is exactly what you will get. A wall mounted desk is special, it is not like any ordinary standing desk. And when you have a DIY wall mounted desk in front of you in all its glory, you need to give it what it deserves: maximum use!
Even though many refer to it as a wall mounted ‘computer desk’, it is not only that. Yes, it is a place to place and work on your computer, but it is capable of being much more than that as well.
If you do not have enough space for the size of the wall mounted desk that you wish to have, do not worry! Then a wall mounted fold down desk will be the most suitable option for you. The way to use a wall mounted fold down desk is, you pull it down when needed. Otherwise, it will remain flat vertically on the wall and will take up minimal space. If you live in a place like or similar to a studio apartment, this option will save your life. A fold-down wall desk, even though cannot be used to place many ornaments or decorations, will be quite helpful in providing you with the use of a fully-functioning desk table without taking up the space it should.
A wall mounted fold away desk is slightly different than the kind that we have talked about in the paragraph above. If you study a variety of wall hung desk plans, then you will be able to spot the difference. The difference between these two kinds of DIY wall mounted desks is that the one that ‘folds away’ can fold in any direction. Not necessarily towards the bottom. This gives you more of a choice on where to place it on your wall.
Other than that, the correct way to use a DIY wall mounted desk is to make sure that you use all of the space on its shelves and surface. The shelves can be used to place things that do not need to be removed often but you use them when you are working on your wall mounted computer desk. The drawers should be used for stationery and other little accessories that tend to get lost if you do not keep them in a safe place. And lastly, the surface should be used for things that you use all the time but also take with you when you leave the desk, like notebooks.[ id=”favourites”] back to menu ↑
