Walnut Elfa décor Desk Tops is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great desk for small space I’ve been searching for a small desk to fit an area above our cabin stairs for four years. I have Elfa shelves in my home office. So happy when I saw the birch decor desk came in 36” width. It was a breeze to install. The desk and shelves are very sturdy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The front edge of this is too sharp! I recently completed a huge Elfa installation in my home office, which included this Elfa Decor "Desk Top" that is 3 feet wide and 20 inches deep. It's almost a great product, but it has one critical flaw that I can't get over. The most important edge is too sharp. When using this surface for computer work, which I do over 8 hours each day, my wrists get roughed up and literally hurt from the sharp edge between the top surface and the front surface. Surely, this is intended to have the shelf fit in attractively with the rest of the Decor line, and yes it LOOKS great. But there is a reason that almost every other "desk" surface has a bullnose rounding, or a chamfered / filleted edge where your arms will rest: because they know that's just more comfortable to rub up against. I'll be working with my carpenter to round this edge and repaint the piece, but for a hundred-dollar piece of wood, I shouldn't have to do that. Comfort should come before looks, and the product designers at Elfa, if they are truly committed to selling work desks, should seriously consider offering this desk top in a new SKU with a rounded front edge. People would love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Check the color before purchasing First of all I am a huge Elfa fan and love the products and durability. I bought this desktop for a garage project. When I went to install I noted that there is a nice wood grain pattern on one side of the desk and an "not so attractive" yellow on the other. I sat there trying to figure out why the bracket mounting was set up to have the "not so attractive" side on top and the nice wood grain hidden on the bottom. Reading the other reviews indicates that this is the intention. Bizarre if this is really the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NEW DESKTOP COLORS! There are new colors for the décor desktops! The walnut décor isn't an "ugly" brown top anymore for the desktop. It is a sleek black top and looks great. I wanted the melamine top on my décor shelves for the desk portion of my solution to protect where I was writing instead of just having the shelves for a desk that weren't protected. But I'm glad they came out with another color choice since the walnut desktop was so different from the shelves before and didn't look great. IT DOES NOW! Worth buying a new desk top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality and worth the investment I bought the birch desk top as part of a customized desk set up. It's simple and non-intrusive. I also had a hard time finding something that fit with the specific space I had to work with, without wasting additional space. Love that you can buy the measurements that work for you. Definitely worth the brand's extra cost over the long term. I also debated between this and the less expensive drift wood color and really happy I did. It's sturdier and the color goes with a number of color schemes I've used in my home office.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy Desk Tops The surface of the desk tops has a different shade of color than the birch. Good writing surface. .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Walnut desktop is wrong color Overall, the desktop is a good product. It is spacious, sturdy and easy to install/remove. The top surface of the desk is a slightly different material than the rest of the decor pieces. It is a harder material that will handle writing and other desktop stuff without scratching. The problem with this surface is that the walnut color is off. Way off. It is a really ugly brown color that will not match your other walnut decor pieces. The picture on this website is not representative of the actual color. I exchanged mine for a white one. Other than color, it's a great desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elfa Rocks! My husband and I purchased our first Elfa system for my closet after a home renovation. We loved the product so much that we have gone on to purchase another closet system, desk/bookshelves for our family room, storage shelves for playroom, bookshelves/computer desk for office, and shelving in our mudroom. We love them all! The decor Elfa shelves look great, are sturdy and functional and meet all the needs of our growing family. I highly recommend everyone to give Elfa a try!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from elfa desk top Created a hidden office space inside a closet. This desk top fits perfectly inside and is extremely sturdy. Still plenty of room for the off season clothes. Like having an armoire without the price and much more flexible to fit all my stuff!

Community Q&A

What is the difference between Walnut elfa décor Desk Tops and 20" Walnut elfa décor Shelves?

Can either of these be installed on elfa Ventilated Shelf Brackets?
Asked by: hrusu
To confirm - if I'm mainly using a computer on my desktop, or a notebook, I would be fine using a 20" shelf? I prefer the look of the shelves to the desktop.

adjusting length

Is it possible to cut it down in width?
Asked by: Vivio
The elfa décor Desk Tops cannot be adjusted. They each have finished ends with the necessary hardware that allows them to attach to the Ventilated Shelf Brackets.

Width dimensions?

So this desk top is 20 inches deep and 36 inches wide? I was looking for a way to fill a 52 inch space.
Asked by: wvshaddox
The best option to maximize the 52" of available space is a centered 20" x 48" x 1-1/4" h elfa decor Desk Top.

Will this accommodate a keyboard tray?

Can I mount a pull-out keyboard tray on the underside of the desk top? It attaches with six screws. I estimate it weighs a couple of pounds, as the sliding mechanism is metal.
Asked by: PDXGal
Accessories such as a keyboard tray cannot be mounted onto our elfa décor Desk Tops. Instead, we would recommend placing your keyboard on the surface of the Desk Top and elevating your monitor using our White elfa décor Accessory/Monitor Shelves.
