A Guide to Finding the Right L-Shaped Desk for a Small Office
A small office can be challenging to furnish. Multiple issues arise when you begin the process of doing so. The most obvious is limited space with the conventional wisdom calling for small office furniture. However, this is often flawed due to the type of work that we do in our offices. Small desks just don’t allow us to perform the work that we are required to do daily. So, what do we do?
From my own personal experience in a small office in my home, I was able to find a fantastic desk that fit the requirements of my daily duties exceptionally well. How did I do this? When I arrived in Madison for my initial training, I sat down with the skilled co-workers who are very well versed in fitting office furniture into tight spaces. With just the dimensions of the office space, they were able to point me to several options which not only fit my space but provided me with an adequately sized desk to perform my duties.
Long story short, I have an 11’x12’ office with a fantastic L shaped desk sitting in the middle of it. From here, I work comfortably every day. I’ve been working at this L shaped desk for the past year and a half, and I am still completely satisfied with my choice. The professionals at Madison Liquidators really do know how to set up a small office with great office furniture. A year and a half later, if I had it to do all over again, I would pick the exact same L shaped desk!
As I look back on my selection, I really feel that the L shaped desk is a great choice for a small office. It provides two desktop spaces to work from, in a footprint that doesn’t take up too much space. They are also exceptional for placing in corners. This is a smart solution to placing multiple workers in a single office. Other ways to do this include placing two L shaped desks together to create a T shaped workstation. There are several other ways that will cover later. Let us dive into this guide to finding the right L-shaped desk for a small office.
Parts of an L Shaped Desk
What is the Purpose of the L Shaped Desk?
The L shaped desk is an upgrade from a traditional rectangular desk. It provides double the workspace due to the main desk and return combination that gives the style of desk its distinctive L shape. This reversable return gives 50% more workspace as compared to a rectangular desk. They are perfect for the office worker who multitasks on a regular basis. So, the purpose of the L shaped desk is to provide an enhanced workstation for a busy office worker. Let’s take a look at L shaped desk types.
L Shaped Executive Desk
An L shaped executive desk is a larger version of the office furniture. This version is designed to be placed in the “big office.” They are both larger and more ornamental than a standard L shaped desk. Even though they are designed for an executive office, they are popular choices for larger offices with plenty of office space.
L Shaped Standing Desks
An L shaped standing desk is a modern take on office furniture where the main desk transitions from a sitting to a standing position at the push of a button. They are found in offices where an active work lifestyle is important. They are used to combat the nagging aches and pains that come with office work.
L Shaped Gaming Desks
This is a specialty L shaped desk designed for the ever popular computer gaming industry. Many gamers are building a complete game room with stylish and functional office furniture. An L shaped gaming desk provides plenty of room for the computer, monitors, and keyboards for the optimum gaming experience.
L Shaped Computer Desks
An L shaped computer desk is designed to provide a solid workstation for an office worker that uses a computer as their primary work duties. With a computer placed on top of the main desk, the return acts as a secondary workstation for other work duties.
Reversible L Shaped Desk
Most L shaped desks can be reversible, which can be important for a fluid office. An L shaped desk that has the potential to be moved, needs to have the ability to change the side of the return in the move. A reversible L shaped desk is a very valuable asset for a growing office.
L Shaped Desk Workstation
Affordable workstations for outfitting a business. They can be standalone units or grouped in pairs to create a T or U shaped desk, or in a group of four to create a large collaborative workstation. This is an excellent choice for a small office that works closely together.
Sometimes shapes of the desks are chosen because of the demands of the small office size or shape. However, that doesn’t mean that an L shaped desk can’t fit within a small office space. Regardless of which desk is chosen, it must function well in the available office space. Often, all these factors make for a difficult decision.
