L-Shaped Office Desks

L-Shaped
Clear all
Compared to a regular work desk, an L-shaped desk offers more work surface and storage capacity without taking up more office space. While most desks with this configuration are computer desks, there are also L-shaped writing, gaming and standing desks. Staples carries a wide selection of these desks from multiple brands and in different sizes.

Benefits of an L-Shaped Desk
The most obvious advantage of an L-shaped table is its space-saving design. By having two perpendicular sides, this desk type takes up the same area as a comparable traditional desk but offers two table tops to work with. Its shape also allows you to make good use of room corners, an often neglected part of most offices. It's also possible to create two distinct work areas on a single L-shaped table. This makes multitasking easier and improves productivity. In addition to saving floor space and increasing work area, an L-shaped computer desk also has more storage compartments than regular rectangular desks. The spaces underneath the two arms of the desk can hide multiple keyboard trays, drawers, cabinets and shelves.

Features to Consider When Shopping for an L-Shaped Computer Desk
Know the dimensions of an L-shaped table before ordering. Note that the lengths and widths of the two arms of an L-shaped desk are not always equal. The shorter side, or the return, can be on the right or left side of the main arm. Build material is another important factor to consider when shopping for work desks. This largely determines the weight, strength and durability of a table. The most commonly used materials for L-shaped computer desks are steel, solid wood, glass and MDF. Solid wood produces heavy desks but they are long-lasting when properly maintained and have a vintage look. MDF is lighter and more affordable than solid wood but has less weight-bearing capacity. Steel is strong and requires very little maintenance. Glass desks look stylish and modern. Their durability depends on the thickness of glass as well as careful maintenance.

How do You Measure an L-Shaped Desk?
Taking the measurement of an L-shaped table requires measuring the length and width of each side of the desk. The height is usually the same for both arms of an L-shaped desk. Use a tape measure and take measurements along the tabletop. Desks without clearly defined junctions take a little more care to measure. For these, treat the shared junction as part of the longer side.

What is a Double L-Shaped Desk?
A double L-shaped desk has two conjoined corner desks. It could be a single unit built to form a T-shaped desk or two L-shaped tables moved together into a T or U shape. Shared by two people, these desk configurations save office space while retaining all the benefits of an L-shaped table.

Can You Place a Left-Handed L-Shaped Desk in a Right-Handed Corner?
Yes, you can fit a left-handed L-shaped table into a right-handed corner. An L-shaped desk with a left-handed return has its shorter side to your left when sitting at the desk. Placing it in a right-handed corner requires rotating the desk so that its long section faces the near wall. This configuration has you facing the wall, with your back to the rest of the office, when sitting down at the desk. Consider the orientation you prefer before placing your order.
