L-shaped desk: why it is a must-have office item

There are a few items that are a must-have when you are trying to create a practical, functional and aesthetically appealing office space. An L-shaped desk is one of these items. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of an L-shaped desk as well as why it is a cost-effective option.

Are L-Shape Desks Worth It?

The short answer is, yes! L-shaped desks are definitely worth investing in! It is the perfect office solution and you will probably never look back once you’ve purchased one. Here are just a few benefits of an L-shaped desk.

  • Increase Desk Space: Even though an L-shaped desk doesn’t take up as much floor space as a larger regular office desk, it offers much more desktop space. It also allows you to more easily arrange your desk into a working environment that suits your specific needs.
  • Everything is Within Reach: The signature L-shape allows you to get to whatever you need by stretching out your arm. Your main desk space now becomes your primary workspace while the desk space off to the side allows you to stack papers and store items you do not regularly work with. With a traditional desk that is large enough to house everything you need you will often have to stand up to reach the back of the desk or other areas.
  • More Storage Options: Alternately to traditional desks you can opt to have your storage on your side desk. This allows you to have more room for your legs and a larger space for drawers or cupboards. This storage is also extremely accessible and does not require you to walk to another area of the office as is often the case with traditional storage cabinets.
  • A Wide Variety of Styles: There are multiple styles and colours to choose from. You can decide whether you want your L-shape desk to have cupboards, drawers, or a mixture of both. You can also get creative with the design, offering you a modern and sleek feel that wasn’t always available 10 or 20 years ago.

L-Shaped Office Desk Price

An L-shape desk is a cost-effective option when compared to buying a large traditional desk and a separate storage unit. It is also more compact and allows for more people to fit into one office, which saves you on renting or building extra office space. The prices of L-shaped desks can range anywhere from around R5000 to R16 000. The difference lies in the quality of the material, the size, and the amount of storage space.
