Corner & L-Shaped Desks for the Home Office
As I was researching my last blog, “A Guide to Finding the Right L-Shaped Desk for a Small Office” I kept coming back to the idea of my own L shaped desk in my home office. The more I studied and compiled data for the other blog, I also found myself setting aside inventory for ideas for corner desks and L shaped desks for a home office. It got to the point to where I had to decide to create a completely separate blog to highlight the idea of these pieces of office furniture for a home office. So, with that in mind we will look at Corner desks and L shaped desks for the home office.
First, let’s look at the distinction between the two because they mostly look the same. The easiest way to describe the difference is that corner desks are designed to go into a corner, while an L shaped desk can go into a corner. However, an L shaped desk is intended to sit openly in the middle of the home office workspace, where every other aspect of the office is designed around it. Likewise, a corner desk frees up space for other type items such as a small conference table. That is unless, the corner desk was chosen for the complete lack of workspace. I feel like that is the biggest benefit of a corner desk, the space saving.
Sometimes limited square footage is the biggest hinderance of a small home office. However, with a little forethought and maybe a little assistance, a surprisingly large L shaped desk can be placed in that office space. When I say assistance, I am talking about my great co-workers at Madison Liquidators. Our staff has many years of dedicated service to our customers. One of our greatest tools is the ability to perform professional floor planning for you. Even with the latest AutoCAD technology if you need it. Just by providing us with the dimensions of your office space, we can guarantee that the office furniture will fit perfectly. That goes for everything from the main desk to the file cabinets.
As we get into this look at corner desks and L shaped desks, I will highlight a few popular models from our inventory. Since these are intended to be in a home office, I will be staying on the smaller side of the spectrum of desk sizes but will highlight of our large models at the end for reference because sometimes even though it’s a home office sometimes that space can be quite large in some situations. As we look into these options, keep in mind that this is just an introduction into the office furniture that we have for the home office. Once you’ve read this, browse our inventory or reach out to our customer support team for a more hands on approach. I’ll provide the phone number to our team at the end of our journey together.
L Shaped Desk
Here it is, the basic L shaped desk shell built with sturdy commercial grade laminate. It is also perfect to be used as a corner desk. There are no bells or whistles, just a solid base to work from. At its core, it is a workhorse for the home office. Like I said, it can be placed anywhere in the available space. It provides enough desktop to keep multiple projects separated, the multitaskers dream! All corner desks and L shaped desks are, and we love them for it! (My home office desk is an L shaped desk.)
From our partner Harmony Collection, as part of their extremely successful PL Laminates series of office furniture. This desk shell is reversable to place the return on either side of the main desk. It is available in 15 different sizes from 60” x 54” all the way up to 71” x 78” which helps when selecting the most desk you can get. The L shaped desk is also customizable to make it more than just a desk shell. With six different options for drawers, ten keyboard trays, and ten monitor arms. Available in the Harmony Collection custom finishes of Aspen, Cherry, Espresso, Mahogany, Modern Walnut, and Newport Gray. Harmony Collection provides a five-year warranty on their home office furniture.
Modern L Shaped Desk with Shelves
For a modern touch, I really like this L shaped desk for its openness and built-in storage. Also, it’s a perfect corner desk if need be. The return is reversable so it can fit in any office and be changed should the need arise at some point. Constructed of strong commercial grade laminate and steel, that’s built to last. This model’s open design may trick the eye into thinking it’s less sturdy than the previous selection, but that just highlights the superior design of the office furniture.
Another Harmony Collection selection, this time from their modern Elements series. This model has five sizes beginning at 72” x 60” all the way up to 72” x 72” which provides ample choices for that right fit. For options, you have your choice of ten monitor arm configurations. Another awesome option with this L shaped desk is the finish. The base and the top have different finish options so they can either be the same or different for a splash of drama with an interesting contrast. The finish combinations can be selected from the Harmony Collection custom finishes of Aspen, Espresso, Modern Walnut, Newport Gray, and White. Once again, Harmony Collection provides a five-year warranty on their home office furniture.
Modern L Shaped Desk with Storage
I chose this modern design alternative because it is has a space saving storage measure with it. When space is limited, the wall mounted hutch will be a huge benefit to have. Storage that doesn’t take up any of the limited square footage of the home office is a premium. So, the appeal of this overhead wall mounted hutch is a huge advantage in the home office game. Not to mention the desk really attractive.
This one comes from our friends at Corp Design as part of their OneSuite series of office furniture and measures 78.75"W x 78.75"D x 29"H. Featuring construction materials of commercial grade laminate, aluminum, and glass, this reversable L shaped desk is built to last for years of dedicated service. It can be used as a corner desk as well if needed. The credenza base, modesty panel and hutch doors come standard in a Blanco finish and there are multiple finishes available for all other laminate surfaces. Those finishes are the Corp Design signature finishes of Blanc De Gris, Blanco, Espresso CD, Grigio CD, Miele, and Noce which gives this L shaped desk a unique two-toned finish option. Corp Design gives a ten-year warranty on their home office furniture.
L Shaped Desk with Storage and Keyboard Tray
This is a unique corner desk with plenty of storage and a keyboard tray. This L shaped desk needs to be specified which side the return is placed before ordering and comes in sizes ranging from 102” x 78” up to 108” x 84” for convenient sizing for your space. This model is perfect for anyone who requires a larger amount of storage. The corner desk is a great multitaskers tool with the multiple desktops and abundant storage.
Our partner Group Lacasse brings this Concept 300 series corner desk to you as a pillar for the home office. Constructed of commercial grade laminate and metal that is backed with a twenty-five-year warranty. Available in these finishes that bring a touch of character to the home office- Anthracite Grey, Authentik Elm, Borealis, Bourbon Cherry, Cherry, Classic Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Fossil, Frost, Hard Rock Maple, Hazelnut, Heritage, Karoo, Mojave, Natural Cherry, Niagara, Roots, Sahara, Salta, Snow, Totem, Tuscany Walnut, and Willow Grey. This corner desk is a fantastic option for the home office.
L Shaped Desk with Storage and Hutch
As promised, here is the go big or go home option that I previously spoke about. Extreme amounts of storage with this one. Which in a home office is never a bad thing. From the storage cabinet, to the overhead hutch to the six different drawer configurations, you will have a hard time running out of storage with this monster. You can also add a keyboard tray for even more organization. Available in either 66” x 90” or 71” x 95” with either a left-hand or right-hand return, this is all the corner desk an office can handle.
We return to Harmony Collection and their PL Laminate series for the big one. An L shaped desk that needs to be placed against the wall to support the overhead hutch or as a corner desk which naturally covers that. Also, a commercial grade laminate desk with the Harmony Collection signature finishes of Aspen, Cherry, Espresso, Mahogany, Modern Walnut, and Newport Gray. As always, Harmony Collection provides a five-year warranty on their home office furniture.
