What’s the best part about hiding a standing desk in a wardrobe? Simply closing the doors makes your entire office vanish.
Lifehacker reader Kraemer modified a wardrobe to be a rather well-camouflaged standing desk. He adjusted the shelves to turn one into a small laptop-friendly desk for his Macbook, the others are spaced to hold peripherals and his paper shredder and waste bin.
Since the wardrobe wasn’t drilled to put the shelves so close together, the shelf for the desk and the shelf for the peripherals are spaced by glass window bricks. The bricks are a novel and visually appealing way to go about making enough room to fit his chargers and USB hub.
The desk is well lit with Grundtal LED lights from Ikea, they are both bright and safe for use in the semi-enclosed space of the wardrobe. When it’s time to tidy up the room, tucking away the computer and accompanying gear is as easy as flipping off the lights and shutting the doors. Nice work Kraemer!
