What is the Best Shape for a Standing Desk?
L-shaped Standing Desks
One of the most common and most popular shapes for standing desks is the L-shaped standing desk.
L-shaped standing desks, such as the Premium L-Shaped Standing Desk from SOLOS, are very popular in offices and workspaces primarily because of the fact that they are so spacious and practical.
Basically, with an L-shaped standing desk, you are getting two desks for the price of one because, as the name tells you, they are in the shape of the letter ‘L’ so there are actually two workstations.
If your office or workstation has a lot of equipment and gadgets, I.E computers, printers, scanners, files, folders, tablets, speakers, and so on, you need plenty of space to store them. With an L-shaped standing desk, you get additional space.
As the desk is a standing desk, you can also electronically adjust the height so you can alternate between sitting and standing. This means that as well as having more workspace, you can also improve your posture too.
Up next, we’re going to look at the specs behind a curved desk.
Again, the shape of this desk is pretty self-explanatory, as it is literally curved in shape, rather than being dead straight.
A curved desk is very handy because it means that you can place different items in different reach zones so that they are easier for you to reach as you work, without having to move away from your desk to get what you need.
A standing curved desk is very useful because the desk is shaped around the user, rather than having a straight edge, which means that the desk won’t dig into you and will not only be more comfortable, it will actually also give you more space as well.
Having a standing curved desk is great because as well as helping to save space, the ergonomic and aesthetic design of the semi-circular curve actually looks sleek and modern and can help to give your office much more of a professional look and feel.
Again, standing desks are very useful because they improve posture, they’re more comfortable, they can assist with weight loss, and they’re also ideal for boosting productivity so if you combine these benefits together, it’s easy to see why so many of us are standing at our desks these days, rather than sitting.
And finally, the last adjustable desk shape option that we’re going to be looking at today is the U-shaped desk.
Again, you don’t need to be a genius to figure out the shape of this desk, but just to be clear, yes, this is indeed a desk in the shape of a U.
A U-shaped desk is ideal for users who are constantly having to reach different items on their desks as it provides an optimal reach area on either side of the user, meaning that essentially on either side they have storage space, as well as plenty of space in front for the computer.
These are generally considered the largest standing desk shape options you can choose from, plus they’re also more costly than the others, but if you have space, and indeed the budget, a U-shaped standing desk could prove to be a very worthy investment.
