Good Morning and thank you for your questions!

The desk unit you see here is around 42" wide. I am not for certain since the project is several years completed. The mailing unit above is just as wide and 6"high.

Have a great day!

Always thought office space in the kitchen is a great feature. Recently came across this Forbes article about kitchen remodel trends and specifically desks in the kitchen. http://onforb.es/17GZv5l

Good Morning and thanks for your question.

Well - what I would do is to first use cork tiles - they come in 12"x12". I would then glue them to the wall all around the dart board - about 3' to each side. Then I would apply another layer of the same cork tiles to the same location so that the cork is really thick - this way the darts will not penetrate through the cork and damage the wall - when thrown at the dart board.

You can either glue both layers of cork to the wall or you could apply them to a substrate first (wood or MDF) this way you can then remove the entire board at a later date without having to scrape the cork off the wall because you glued it down.

Hope that helps
Have a great day!

Thank you, Shane,
I think applying cork to wood first is the way to go...didn't think of that! Thanks for the great tip.

Thank you! I am thinking of doing my son's room with one small wall of just cork board so my 11 year old can pin a bunch of stuff up! Any thoughts on how to do that?

Good Afternoon!

Thank you for your question.

There is approximately 24" between the finished desk surface to the bottom of the mail-slotted cabinetry.

Have a wonderful evening!

Hi there, If you do a search on Google for "corkboard sheets" you should see several sources. Then, you just cut to fit.

Hello there anntbauer,

This corkboard was custom-made for the client. We used cork tiles and had my tradesman cut it for fit the area. Thank you for asking and please feel free to ask if you have any other inquiries.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The wall above your desk is the perfect place for pinning up reminders or inspirational photos. The trick is to custom fit the cork to the space.

The backsplash needs to be wood. No granite - wood-stained on desk top. In the upper cabinet - no cubby hole - just make the doors longer. under the desk are put a pull-out keyboard shelf.
