Corner and L-Shaped Standing Desks
As popular as standing desks have become—and as many companies as there are producing them these days—so-called “Standing L-Desks”, “L-Shaped Standing Desks” or” “Height Adjustable L-Desks” have been the red-headed stepchild of the active workstation category. Until recently.
While there aren’t a plethora of L-shaped standing desk options compared to their two-legged rectangular brethren, there are now enough offerings in the market to ensure that regardless of your space requirements, budget, or existing décor, there’s an electric L-desk out there that will likely suit your needs.
It’s fair to say that it’s actually easier to shop for an electric L-desk than a standard two-legged one because there are fewer options, but they’re still hard to find through a simple Google search. So, we’ve put together a roundup of some of the most popular models available today.
On top of the L-shaped desks, nowadays there are also so many options of corner standing desks.
You might be wondering “what’s the difference between a corner desk and an L-desk?” While it’s true that a corner desk can be called a small L-shaped desk, this is another one of those situations where some standing desk purveyors intermix the two labels, adding to the confusion. To be clear, here are the differences:
- Corner standing desks may have two or three lifting legs but are distinguished from L-shaped desks because they are always built with a single desktop. Most corner desks are also symmetrical in dimension, so a 47″x47″ desk would measure 47″ along each wall. The exception is a “pork chop” design that has one side longer than the other, but still made out of a single plank of wood. Corner standing desks are generally less expensive than full-fledged L-desks and may be a great option for those searching for a small L-shaped desk because of space restrictions.
- L-shaped standing desks will always have three lifting legs, and always be constructed with two desktops mounted perpendicular to each other. L-desks are generally larger than corner desks, and allow for much more flexibility in terms of having the exact length you need against one wall versus the other. They also cost a lot more due to the fact that there are three legs instead of two and two desktop slabs instead of one.
If this unique shape sings to you, and works in your available office space, the UpLift Curved Corner is worth your consideration.
If this 60" x 42" L-desk is the right size for you, and you don't mind that it only comes in white, the Eureka E-60 looks to be a great desk for the money.
A slap-dash entry to fill out Multitable's line of Asian-made standing desks, the Mod-E Pro L-Desk is as minimal an offering as you can find.
Stable enough to be used with walking treadmills, these two-legged desks offer exceptional ergonomics, decor options, and cost effectiveness.
