If you are an avid reader of our blogs, then you have probably come across a few articles talking about personalizing your office space. This could include redesigning your office chair or just adding more personality to your desk through framed photos, quirky figurines, or small, indoor plants.
But if you are suddenly faced with the limitations of the office desks you have in your company, then the idea of L-shaped desks have surely crossed your mind once or twice.
L-shaped desks, in terms of space, offers more flexibility compared to other common office desks. The extra surface area is perfect to make home for more items, be it for work or for inspiration. To better help you make the most of your L-shaped desk, here are some factors you should consider:
1. Your job.
Of course, there is still a question of whether or not you really do need that much space. Ask yourself, on a daily basis, do you deal with a lot of paperwork? What and how many kinds of technology do use to accomplish your tasks? This way, you will be able to determine if you’ll be able to maximize the space. You don’t want to end up filling that desk with trash, right?
2. Your office layout.
Strategic placement of furniture and architectural structures also affect the effectiveness of your L-shaped desk. Take into consideration any columns, windows, and doorways in your office to make sure you won’t be taking up space originally designed for something else.
3. Your colleagues.
This goes hand in hand with item number 2. Consider the company and the people that make it; proximity between employees can also help you make an informed decision on whether or not going for an L-shaped office desk is a good idea and if it is, where the perfect location to place it would be.
Once you’ve factor in these three and come to a conclusion that you do need (and want) an L-shaped office desk, go crazy personalizing it with more! And if you need help in other effective office space planning tips, don’t hesitate to contact us here at Solutions Office Interiors.
