The Perfect L Shaped Desk For WFH Comfort
Your home office is where you spend a significant portion of your day, whether you’re working from home or just catching up on paperwork.
To get the most out of your working day, it’s essential to ensure that your workspace is comfortable, convenient, and designed to promote productivity. Our Buro Corner Desks, also known as L-shaped desks, can help you achieve just that.
In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of using an L shaped desk and provide tips for selecting the right one for you. We’ll also share advice for setting up your desk for maximum comfort and productivity, as well as additional tips for creating a comfortable and healthy home office space.
Benefits Of An L Shaped Desk
With the rise of remote working, many of us have transitioned to working from home in the past couple of years. While it may have seemed like a dream come true initially, we soon face some challenges with working from home.
One of the biggest challenges is creating a comfortable workspace that allows us to be productive and organised. A well-designed home office can make all the difference, and that’s where an L-shaped desk comes in.
Our Buro Corner Desks provide more workspace than a traditional rectangular desk, making it a great option if you like to have multiple monitors or need space for your laptop and piles of paperwork.
In addition to the ample workspace, the generously sized corner desk allows space for storage drawers underneath the desk while still being able to stretch out. If you need extra storage space, our Buro Glide is perfect for storing important paperwork to help de-clutter your desk – tidy space, tidy mind, right?!
One of the most significant advantages of an L-shaped desk is its ergonomic design to provide support for your body. With the two sections of the L, you can position your equipment in the most comfortable way.
Using the Buro’s height adjustable feature, you can ensure your arms and wrists are at the proper angle while you work, reducing fatigue and strain. It also allows you to seamlessly move from sitting to standing throughout your working day to help increase productivity and improve health.
The advantages don’t stop there: L-shape desk’s design allows you to keep everything you need within arm’s reach. This makes you more efficient as you won’t have to get up and down to grab your things. You’ll also be less distracted by clutter or a lack of organisation, allowing you to focus on your work and be more productive.
Factors To Consider When Choosing An L-Shaped Desk
The first thing to consider when choosing an L shaped desk is the size of the room and the layout of your workspace. You want to ensure that the desk doesn’t overcrowd the room or make it difficult to move around. You also want to make sure that the L shape can fit comfortably within your workspace.
The L-shaped desk can be made from various materials, including wood, metal, and glass. You’ll want to consider the durability of the material and how it will fit into the design of your workspace. If you have kids or pets, you may want to opt for a desk with a more durable surface or one that is easier to clean.
Our Buro Corner Desk frames are made from 25% recycled steel, with desktops made from 100% FSC certified forests, making them environmentally friendly and durable.
When choosing your L shaped desk, it’s also important to consider the aesthetics. Ask yourself: “Will this colour and style blend into my home office?”
Buro Corner Desks are available in a raw steel frame or white steel frame with the choice of six different desktops, so you can create the perfect colour combination for your space.
How to set up your L-Shaped Desk for Maximum Comfort and Productivity
Ergonomics should be your top priority when setting up your home office. Ensure that your desk is at the correct height, and your computer monitor is at eye level.
A good rule of thumb is to have your elbows at a 90-degree angle when typing, whether you’re sitting or standing. You may also consider investing in an ergonomic chair to provide you with the support and comfort you need to prevent back and neck pain.
An L shaped desk provides ample surface area, allowing you to organise your workspace. Use a storage drawer to keep your stationery and other items in place. Arrange your files and folders based on priority and keep them within reach. A clutter-free workspace can significantly boost your productivity.
Proper lighting is crucial for reducing eye strain and fatigue. So, consider placing your desk near a window to get natural light, and add a lamp for additional lighting.
The Lumie Halo Light Therapy SAD Lamp is perfect for home offices with little to no natural light. It replicates the natural glow of sunlight, providing you with our daily dose of sunlight. Proven to help fight fatigue, improve focus and mood, you can work to the best of your ability.
Decorate your workspace to create a comfortable and motivating environment. Add some plants or photos to brighten up the space and give it that homely feeling.
Studies show we are more productive when working in a space that reflects our identity. So, make sure to decorate your workspace in a way that feels personal to you.
Additional Tips For Creating A Comfortable Home Office Space
In addition to your L-shaped desk, there are several other things you can do to create a comfortable home office space.
A comfortable chair is a must-have for any home office. Look for a chair that provides proper back and neck support and adjust it to the correct height to prevent discomfort.

Personalise your workspace with items that inspire and motivate you. Add some art, family photos, or inspirational quotes to liven up your space and keep you motivated throughout the day.
Working from home can blur the lines between work and personal life, leading to burnout. Establish a routine and set boundaries to create a healthy work-life balance. Take regular breaks and step out of your workspace to recharge and relax.
