Modern Office Ideas: Introducing the Executive L-Shaped Desk

Modern Office Ideas: Introducing the Executive L-Shaped Desk

Two of the most popular height-adjustable desk styles on the market are the L-shaped desk and the standing office desk. Which one is right for your working space

You may already know that there are many different types of electric sit-stand desks on the market. Standing desks come in a variety of colours, sizes, and even shapes. If you’ve got a lot going on and could use a bigger desk surface or more leg room to improve circulation in your home office, upgrading to a modern home office corner desk workstation may be the perfect solution for you in 2020. 

Whether you’re looking for a gaming desk upgrade or a new office desk, Canadian ergonomics industry leader EFFYDESK is here to help. 

In this article, we’ll be breaking down the top pros and cons of the L-Shaped Desk to help you decide whether a corner desk or a straight desk will best suit your sitting to standing desk station needs.

Corner Desk 101: What is an L-Shaped Desk?

L- shaped desks, also known as corner desks, are named after their shape. Although the length of different L-desks may vary, every corner desk comes with a 90-degree angle tabletop. 

Corner l-shaped desks fit perfectly against the wall to help maximize your work surface. When it comes to the perfect home office desk, remember size matters

How Does it Differ From a “Straight Desk”?

Straight desks, or conventional office desks, are more commonly found in the workspace or home office. Straight desks are conventionally designed in a rectangular shape, and are often accompanied with desk drawers, a filing cabinet, or a pull-out keyboard tray.

Like L-shaped desks, straight desks also come in a variety of widths and lengths. However, an L-Shaped desk provides more desktop and legroom for you to navigate from one area of your workstation to the next.

Benefits of L-Shaped Standing Desks

The biggest advantage of using an L-shaped desk is the increase in desktop space. A larger work surface allows you to sprawl your items out while staying organized.  This extra space will help you stay focused and productive, as you’ll be able to see all of your work clearly. 

For developers, video editors or anybody who needs to spend consecutive hours at their desk throughout the day, the increase in surface space allows for smarter multitasking, as it gives you space to work on different projects simultaneously. 

The L-shaped desk is the answer to those who benefit from the use of dual monitor desk mounts, which all help to improve productivity and ergonomics at your workstation. Switch between projects seamlessly without having to physically move two desks side by side when you need extra desktop surface to work from. L-Shaped desks save you time and help to boost your productivity.

How to Organize Your L-Shaped Desk

The best way to organize your L-shaped desk is to consider how often you’ll be moving from one side of the desk to the other. For starters, many desktop users like to leave their monitor mounts and computer desktop(s) on one side, and their mouse, iPads, sketchbooks or accessories on the other. 

L-Shaped Desks, not only increase surface space but they can also increase floor space. L-Shaped desks fit perfectly into the corner, clearing space in the middle of the floor, making your office space feel larger. 

For bigger offices, L-shaped desks are an advantage as they increase surface space and can make your office feel larger. Those with smaller offices, fear not! Pair your L-shaped desk with smaller tabletops to fit your workspace. That way the desk won’t overpower your office and still leave enough space for your ergonomic office chair
