L-Shaped Desks are desks in the shape of an L that fit parallel to two walls. They are optimized for the corner of your home office. L Shaped desks are specifically valuable for people that want to increase the surface area of their workspace.
They are also helpful and for workers who want “Corner Symmetry”.
These desks enable you to easily place different tools or products in simple relation to each other. L Shaped Desks are versatile and provide great below and above desk storage.
Naturally these desks come in different sizes and dimensions that impact how much surface area and storage you will get. A hugely overlooked but important aspect of L-shaped desks is the size of each side of the desk relative to the other.
L-shaped desks, made of two smaller desks perpendicular to each other, can contain equal sized sides. This is the most common construction but you can also buy L-shaped desks where one side is larger and has more room for your primary work station.
What Are L-shaped desks?
As the name implies, an L-shaped desk is a desk made of essentially two decks that form the letter L when built together. L shaped desks are a desk type that form a specific form and position best suited for placement in the corner of a rectangular or square room.
What makes An L-shaped desk useful?
L-Shaped desks give you more space to work, leverage space in your room more effectively, and enable you to have “Corner Symmetry”. Traditional symmetry is when an idea looks the same regardless of the angle in which it is viewed. Corner symmetry, in contrast, is the balance that an L-shaped desk gives a room because it affords harmonious and beautiful proportion and balance. The desks use space efficiently because of their construction and because of how the two sides of the L fit together to fill the corner edge of a room. An L-shaped desk can make a small space seem more spacious and enable a large space to achieve office flow because the products that you need to work – a computer, printer, lamp, paper – can be placed evenly on either side of the desk. L-shaped desks come in many shapes and sizes and colors. Picking the L-shaped unit that works for your space is critical to having a good experience as some of these desks are optimized for below desk storage and others for work-ready surface area.
Benefits of L-shaped desks?
Remember Geometry in high school? Fortunately for you, we do. The key thing in this form of mathematics is how shapes fit together. An L-shaped desk gives you more surface area to work because less space is wasted. If you are on a space budget, this is a particularly compelling reason to consider this product. By placing the desk in the corner, you can use your room space to its maximum efficiency. These desks are particularly well suited for spaces where walls or other furniture are fixed and you want to build around these obstacles. For example, it is popular to place these in corners so that you can work from two sides of the room facing in both directions. Many people user desks that have built-in compartments and drawers. L shaped desks give enhanced beneath desk storage space and utility.
A second key benefit is that you can have two distinct surfaces on which to work. I have an L-shaped desk and have my monitor and keyboard on one side. On the other, I have my writing utensils and paper and tablet on the other. When I want to type I swivel and move to my left. When I want to sketch or think away from my computer, I turn to my right. This division enables my body and my mind to take breaks all without leaving my general work station. It also creates flow in my workspace. I know that my desk is using the space in my room to the best of its ability.
Pricing for Value
A final consideration for L-shaped desks is their value. Essentially you are getting nearly two desks for the price of slightly more than one. If you are a value conscious buyer, you will want unparalleled surface area for your home office for the cheapest possible price point. L-shaped desks provide that.
Measuring Space for an L-shaped desk
When buying an L-shaped desk it is important to measure the space for the entire desk and where the two desks come together. Because you will likely place your chair under one portion of the desk you need to factor in which side of the desk you want to be your primary workstation and which side you want to be your secondary area for work. L-shaped desks are made of the same materials (wood, metal, or glass) as others desks so can get more space without worrying about the design aesthetic or quality you might want. As with all desks, ensure you know the space you planning to use the desk in and take a moment to measure the length, width, and depth requirements of the desk relative to your room. L-shaped desks may require more assembly work unless you order it pre-assembled. This is because you are essentially joining two desks together.
