An L-shaped desk is an efficient and productive workstation designed in the shape of an L that fits parallel to two walls. This type of desk optimizes the corner of a home office or office workspace, as less space is wasted. L-shaped desks are often used by people with lots of paperwork and equipment that they want to be able to access. They need a larger worksurface than a straight worksurface. L-shaped desks are versatile, as they allow for both above and below desk storage.
