L Shaped Computer Desk: Shopping Criteria

After reading through our top picks for L Shaped Computer Desks we’d like to now explain specifications such as sizes, design, material and functions:

Size

The important first step for you as a customer is to measure the footprint(s) in your home or office space before enquiring (Or call us for help). These Desks come in varying sizes so be sure to check the measurements shown in the tables on the product pages. A rule of thumb is to measure the Overall Width x Overall Depth so you’ll be left with a rectangular shaped footprint that your new desk will fit into.

Widths range from 119.4cm up to 165.4cm depending on the style of desk you choose.

Design

L Shaped Computer Desks usually consist of large L-shaped tabletops and offer the space of two separate desks. However, they can also consist of a single normal-sized tabletop with a recessed smaller worksurface. Again it depends on the utility required. Let us know and we’ll point you in the right direction. Carefully check the sizes that can be found on the product pages.

Many of the desks have various configurations of under desk storage, whether 2 shelves or pedestals (with drawers) and some have above desk storage and shelves suitable for widescreen monitors, books, desk tidies and more. The full L Shaped Computer Desk product range.

Shopping Guide L Shaped Computer Desk: Everything You Should Know

The following section is an FAQ and can be helpful to you before and after buying an L Shaped Computer Desk.

Who is the L Shaped Computer Desk suitable for?

Each one of our desks is suitable for schools, colleges, universities, home use and the office. With around double the work surface of a straight desk there is enough space for computers - multiple monitors - most devices, books, stationery and other work materials. Due to its 90 degree angle design, it is also space-saving and can fit the corner of any room easily. In an education setting like an IT department they are able to be positioned together to create a U shape or a bank of 4 for several students or employees.

The L Shaped Computer Desk surface area can handle many additional devices making it very popular with gamers. They have more than enough space for multiple widescreen monitors. If you are a gamer take inventory of what PC Towers, Consoles and Devices you have and choose a desk configuration to suit you. If you have trouble deciding, contact us.

How do you position a L Shaped Computer Desk?

For a single L Shaped Computer Desk it is very easy to choose a corner in your room and it will just neatly sit next to walls on 2 sides (Remember to measure the footprint available in your room to make sure it will fit). What could be better than doubling your workspace whilst increasing floor space?

If you want a view of your window it helps to measure the height from the floor to the underside of the window shelf (Make sure the light from the window doesn’t directly shine on your screens). Then check the height of the desk to make sure it will fit comfortably under the window shelf. To accommodate several employee workplaces at once it’s possible to combine several desks in what’s known as a bank formation eg. 4 desks pushed together positioned and measured equally in intervals down an office.

Conclusion

An L Shaped Computer Desk is suitable for anyone who sits at a table for a short, medium or long period (Although take regular breaks). 

It is also ideal for people with short arms to easily gain access and work on all available surfaces. There are many options depending on a customer’s required use. We urge you to read each product description carefully and contact us for any further help should you require it. Hopefully now that you’ve read this guide you have a better understanding of the desk options and how to use them in your project.
