Why People Prefer L shaped Computer Desks
The L shaped computer desk is quickly becoming the desk of choice for home offices because of the amount of space they save. Home offices are usually located in a spare room in the house. These rooms are often small and were not initially designed to be used as an office. Using an L shaped desk is a great solution to the space problem.
Are All L shaped Computer Desks The Same?
All L shaped desks are absolutely not the same. Although the basic configuration is similar, there is a great variety of these desks that vary in size and design. Here is a sampling of the choices available with L shaped desks.
- Glass And Steel Desks – These can be very affordable, or quite expensive. Some of the least expensive L shaped desks are made from glass and steel. They can be ideal for smaller corners, but have minimal features. The corner usually has a raised platform for a computer screen, and there is a small platform at the bottom in the corner for the CPU. Other than that, however, there is little built in storage included.
- Self Assembled L shaped Computer Desk – Made by companies like Sauder, these desks are the ones you find in big box retail stores as well as major office supply retail outlets. These desks are fairly easy to assemble, but can be flimsy. They are often made from particle board, fiber board, or other wood product materials, rather than solid natural wood. They are very economical and fit well in most small corners. For a little extra (but less than $150), Techni Mobili has some very stylish alternatives.
- L shaped Bow Front Computer Desk – While still offering some space savings, these desks are a little bulkier that traditional L shaped desks, but usually take up less wall space. Made from either PVC or wood, these desks are sturdier than the cheap fiber board desks. The bow front desks also take up less wall space.
