If you’re a WFH girlie like me, a designated desk area is the key to staying on track. That, and making sure you get out to work in a coffee shop at least a few times a week. If you’ve been slacking on your work lately, a desk upgrade could be just the thing you need to get back on track. Add in a few fresh pens, a new wood-crackling candle to burn and a little succulent, and you’re sounding more focused already!

I rounded up the best folding desks of all sorts—think super small ones, floating desks and fancy writing desks galore. There’s something for every aesthetic, whether you like glam vibes or something more low-key and simple. All of the desks on this list are pretty compact too, so they won’t intrude on your valuable square footage ever again.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do.

YOMT Small White Folding Computer Desk for Home Office Industrial

This is the perfect no-frills desk for small spaces. When it’s not in use, it can completely fold up and slide under a bed or be placed at the back of a closet. Plus, the panel on the side holds books and magazines and can be customized to hang on either side of the desk. It’s from Walmart, and in addition to desks, the retailer seriously has so many affordable home accessories to choose from if you’re in need of decor to brighten up your work area as well.

White Floating Desk With Shelves

If you want your furniture to serve multiple purposes, you’ll love this floating, folding desk. When you unfold the desk, which looks like a tall cabinet, it reveals a ton of little shelves—24, in fact. If that wasn’t enough, the desk also comes with a chalkboard, so you can write your to-do list every day.
