Pros and Cons of Buying a Corner Computer Desk

If you're setting up a small office and you need to save room, or if you'd like to make a space in your house that will function as a home office or just a place to keep your home computer, then you might want to consider buying a corner computer desk. Corner desks are great because they save room by using an L-shape that maximizes the desktop space that you can use. Also, since it goes in the corner, a space that will feel out of the way and thus mostly unusable for many pieces of furniture, it occupies an area that would otherwise go unused.

There are several styles of corner desks that you can choose that will fill your needs. CD racks are common hardware accessories for corner desks. This is a handy way to store any programs that you use frequently or to keep copies of your work that you've saved to discs. If you will be using your computer to play video games, this is also a convenient place to store them. You will save yourself time by having the discs organized within arm's reach of your computer.
Many corner computer desks also have hardware that will elevate your computer screen so that it is at eye level. Having your screen at eye level promotes good posture while you're typing. You can buy platforms separately that will keep the screen at an appropriate level, but having additional items on your desk can look tacky. By purchasing a corner desk that has a platform built in, you can be sure that it will be aesthetically pleasing as well as functional.

There are some disadvantages to the corner computer desk though. Obviously, they don't offer you much of a view. Even if you have a window in the corner, many desks use shelves and cabinets so that you can store files and CDs easily. Some also have platforms that you can put your computer monitor on. These can be handy accessories, but a corner desk with either of these features will probably block any view that you might have from of a corner window.

Corner computer desks are often perfect for small offices or home offices, but if you're using it in your main office you might have bigger concerns than being able to look out of the window. Having a corner desk is going to create a very informal feeling in your office. When people come into your office, you will be forced to turn your chair around in order to talk to them. You won't be able to talk to them over the desk. For this reason, the corner desk is not recommended for people who occupy positions of power in a company. It can be rather difficult to use the power of your office effectively when you're turning your chair around to speak to someone. If you want to exude a position of power, then you'll want to be able to address people over your desk, with you sitting behind it and them sitting or standing in front of it.

Corner computer desks can be incredibly functional items for your office, but you need to know their limitations before you invest in one. Make sure the desk you buy will fit in with the rest of your office. If your major concern is space, then you couldn't pick a better desk than the corner desk. If, however, you're more concerned about having a good view or being able to address people in meetings, then you might want to consider having a desk that doesn't sit against any walls, let alone the corner of two walls.
