Yes, a table mounted to the wall sounds a bit strange but once you see it, you’ll notice that there are many different ways they can be used and the space they save. You may decide to have one for yourself. This type of table is ideal if you live in a small apartment, studio apartment, or a home with small rooms. You can use it in your kitchen, office, bedroom, living room, hallway, and any other room you might think of.
Wall mounted tables come in a variety of materials, sizes, and styles. Outside of the home there you can find a desk attached to wall for getting massages, changing your baby diapers, and there are some that even fashioned to use as a spare bed.
One of the biggest advantages of using this type of table is that it will stay in one place and does not move. When it is not in use, it can be folded up and put out of the way. Some of the tables will fold down when not in use to give you the added space while others do not fold down.
It is advantageous to have this table in child’s room. Because your children will have someplace to place on but they cannot move it around nor can they pull it on top of them. It would be a safe table for their room.
In the kitchen, this type of table could be used when you need extra room to put dishes of food when you have friends or as a prep area.
In an office, if you do not have a lot of space you can use a table mounted to the wall to put your computer on, the copier machine, coffee machine, extra files you are working on, as an extra work space, etc.
If space is limited in the nursery you could get a small one to use it as a changing table. All you have to do is add a soft pad for the baby to lie on. When not in use, fold it down. Some of the tables fold down toward the floor while others fold upward and they are secured to the wall with some type of hook so you have your choice of how you want it to fold.
These tables can be made of wood, plastic, stainless steel, wrought iron, etc. The type of material you choose will depend on what it is being used for. For example, a public baby changing table would most likely be made of hard plastic that is easy to clean off along with a soft plastic match on which to lay the baby. This type of material would be easy to clean off.
When you are installing your table make sure that it mounted to the stud in the wall to give it more stability because a wall mounted table is heavy and could pull out of the wall if not mounted to a stud.
