With more and more people working from home recently, despite offices slowly allowing workers to return back, home office furniture sales are up drastically over the last couple of years, and things are showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. 

Because of the health and productivity benefits associated with standing desks which have recently  been published, more and more people are equipping their offices with standing desks, and for good reason. Out of the many standing desk products out there, L-shaped home office desk sales are up particularly high, but why? 

There are many different types of standing desk to choose from, so why are people gravitating towards L-shaped computer desk products instead of regular shaped desks? Well, let’s take a look, shall we? 

Here are several benefits of choosing an L-shaped standing desk over a conventional desk. 


Save space


Despite the fact that L-shaped standing desks are bigger than regular desks, they’re actually great for saving space in smaller offices. 

Due to their unique shapes, L-shaped computer desk products sit perfectly in corners that would ordinarily be doing nothing, so you can maximize space which would normally be wasted, all the while making use of more free space in and around the rest of the office. 

Not only that, but as L-shaped computer desk products offer you more actual desk space, you can keep things like notepads, laptops, tablets, and other office essentials neat, tidy, organized, and within arm’s reach. 


Better elbow support


When we think of standing desks, we think of the health benefits that they can provide in the form of good posture, and back and neck support. What people often don’t realize however, is the fact that L-shaped desks can also provide heaps of elbow support. 

The SOLOS Triple-Motor Premium L-Shaped Standing Desk for example, offers a lot of workspaces that provide adequate elbow support so you can avoid other posture-related issues which may be affecting your arms and/or your wrists. 


Keep essentials within arm’s reach


Remember how we spoke about how great L-shaped home office desk products are for saving space? Well, we’ll now expand upon that and how it’s great for productivity. 

L-shaped desks offer more actual desk space so you can store more items within arm’s reach. This is especially useful for boosting productivity because it can save so much time. 

Having the ability to simply reach over and grab an essential item, rather than have to get up and walk to another part of the office and walk back again will save you time and effort, and will also help you to stay in the ‘zone’ as it were. 


Aesthetically pleasing


Another fabulous benefit of having an L-shaped home office desk, either standing or sitting, is the fact that they are so aesthetically pleasing. 

L-shaped desks such as the SOLOS Premium L-Shaped Standing Desk are ideal because they give offices a sleek and modern look and feel which really helps to lift the appeal of your workspace and enhance the overall aesthetics. 

Okay, having a nice-looking desk may not be as important as having a practical and organized desk, but it still boasts aesthetics and helps to give everything a clean, tidy, and professional appearance and who wouldn’t want that? 


Great for your posture


Another very important benefit associated with standing desks, be they L-shaped or otherwise, is the fact that they are so fantastic for your posture. 

Experts have found that sitting for prolonged periods of time for hours on end can place a lot of strain and pressure upon the back and spine. Add to that, the fact that people often slouch when sitting at a desk and hunch their shoulders forwards, they also often experience neck issues. 

Standing desks have been found to provide many benefits to a person’s overall posture as it helps ease the pressure placed upon the back, spine, and joints, while also promoting physical exertion. 

If you suffer from poor posture and you want to act now before things get worse, go ahead and invest in an L-shaped standing desk and you’ll be so glad that you did. 


Great for sharing


One benefit of having an L-shaped computer desk, which people probably won’t have realized, is the fact that they’re so great for sharing and saving space too. 

Say you have a home office and you and your significant other have no option but to share a home office, having an L-shaped desk is perfect because it means that the both of you can work on it at the same time. 

Okay, it might not be ideal but if you invest in a large sized L-shaped desk, you’ll find that it fits two people quite comfortably, so the pair of you can share a workspace together. 


Fewer wires and cords


The last thing you want is for your desk to become a tangled mess full of electrical wires and cords, yet for many, that’s exactly what they have. 

We know that offices and desks need electrical products such as laptops, computers, printers, tablets, scanners, and so on, and we know that the vast majority of them need electricity to power them. 

Smaller desks tend to become overwhelmed with electrical wires and cords and wind up like Spaghetti Junction. 

L-shaped desks however, offer much more space so you can spread your electrical items out so the wires don’t get tangled up. On top of that, you can also purchase accessories such as the SOLOS Cable Manager, which helps to keep wires and cables neat, tidy, and organized as you work.
