Building a DIY bookshelf desk is a project you will actually enjoy. By integrating the storage unit and a desk, you may find it a more space-saving solution to take up less space as you need the functions of both furniture pieces. There are many bookshelf desk ideas you can look up as your source of inspiration as well. We have some of them below. Check them out!
The ladder bookshelf desk is one of popular options many DIY-ers choose when they build a bookcase desk. As you may have noticed, the idea is just like transforming the leaning shelving unit, which can also be made from repurposing old ladder, into a more practical furniture piece. The size varies. The desk is added right on the perfect height and is integrated seamlessly with the rest of the ladder bookcase unit. It is then leaned against a wall, consuming much less space than using a freestanding bookshelf and a freestanding desk separately.
Alternatively, you can also make a bookshelf desk for home office or study area in another creative way. Place two shelving units which height isn’t as taller as desk height and then place a thick, sturdy countertop above with the shelves supporting each end. This way, you can use the storage compartment right away for your office supplies. Another solution for space-saving office area is to install overhead cabinets above the DIY desk.
It goes without saying that you also need to measure the space first before you even begin planning for your DIY project. You can also start working with an existing freestanding bookshelf or from scratches. In a small room, consider making the desk foldable as an alternative to leaning ladder bookcase so you can close it whenever the desk isn’t used, thus providing more floor space to for flow of traffic.
