Paperwork or Computer - What type of work you will be doing on your desk? Does your work involve mostly paper works? If so then you need a desk that has lots of space on top of it. You will need to keep different types of files folders documents and other items on top of the desk while working. The length and width of the desk should be right for the purpose. A big advantage with such a desk is that it can be used for laptop as well.
Things to Consider when buying your Desk: Use: Consider paperwork versus computer work? Storage needs - drawers versus cupboards? How much work area is actually needed and will you be able to reach it?
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.
PC or Laptop - A laptop does not require a desk with too many slots. A simple flat top desk is sufficient for the purpose. However a desktop computer requires proper slots in the desk to accommodate all the computer parts. Make sure the desk can accommodate additional computer accessories like printer. Less space is needed for an all-in-one printer but more space is needed if the printer and scanner are two separate units. If you use a landline phone or fax machine then the desk should have the space or slot for such a device.
Desks versus Writing Tables and Library Tables: Writing and Library Tables come in much the same sizes as Desks however the key difference being that the tables usually only have a single line of frieze drawers under the work surface. (Writing tables have drawers on one side of the table only - library tables have drawers to both sides - sometimes called Partners’ tables). Tables can provide an interesting alternative to a desk if only limited storage is required. Aesthetically a table can make the room look larger since more of the floor can be seen as compared to the bulk of a desk that comes right down to the floor. For buyers with attractive floor coverings (or bare wood) a writing or library table can be a very interesting alternative to a desk. Some Clients also specify both Desk and Writing Table/Library Table for their office. The table can be used as an extra work space (perhaps separating paperwork from computer work - or as a meeting table. The style and wood of desk and table will need to be compatible and the leather work surfaces (where fitted) will also need to be matched.
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.
