one Wall panel «Skodis», 1 699 rubles
If you can carve out just a couple of square meters for the workplace, try to use the walls as much as possible. Hanging a wardrobe or shelves right above the table is not a good idea when there is not enough space.
The perforated board takes up less space, and its content is easy to change. You can hang shelves, hooks, pencil glasses, folder holders, and remove or move them at any time.

2 Shelf with drawers «Akbi Alex», 3 499 rubles
To fit the workplace into a small niche, use a hanging shelf with drawers instead of a regular table with legs. It takes up less space and does not attract much attention.
