Davenport desk: A small desk with an inclined lifting desktop giving access to a large compartment with ample storage space for paper and other writing implements. Escritoire: A small portable writing desk with a sloping front door hinged at the bottom edge that can be opened to provide a writing surface. It is usually larger than a lap desk.
Practical Matters: Access for installation - most desks are made in three pieces (two pedestals and a top) but a one piece desk or table may require need the access into the room itself to be checked (remember to check the stairs if it is going above the ground floor). Most professional furniture movers such as those employed by Antiquedesks.net can manoeuvre large piece of furnitures but sometimes it just doesn’t fit!
Accommodate More Than One Person - Decide beforehand if the desk will be used only by you or more than one person. This is an important question to ask before designing a wall side desk. A standard rectangle desk can be used by four or more people at the same time. That is not the case with an L-shaped or I-shaped desk that does not have sufficient length. If you deal with clients at home then take a look at home office desks that can be used by more than one person. Your clients will feel comfortable while dealing with you. If someone else will be working along with you at the same time then take the opinion of the other person as well before you buy the home office desk.
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.
Desk and Table Combinations: As mentioned above there are circumstances where more work space (or meeting space) is required. In this instance a combination of desk and writing or library table could be appropriate (or boardroom type table).
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.
