For anyone looking for furniture for their office or home workspace, efficiency and use of space are big issues. A desk is a main piece in every office, and of course it should be practical and stylish at the same time. If you are tight on space, I’d strongly recommend a corner desk, which offers several benefits that a few more rigid desk types don’t – let’s look at these advantages.
A corner of an office or a home office can often be a very difficult space to fill using traditional desks. A corner desk maximizes space in the same way, but without the loss in movement range. You have more floor space for furniture or walkways, which can be a huge edge for people with a smaller office – or students in a dorm room or small work area. It provides more space to move around freely, a larger factor in productivity than many people realize. It also gives you a chance to squeeze in some storage units under the desktop, for example, some IKEA pieces to store without cluttering.
If you have a long traditional desk, chances are you have to strain to reach across it or physically move your chair at least a few times per day. A corner desk removes this need as long as you have a basic swivel chair – you can simply pivot from left to right, accessing the same surface area without ever needing to move your chair or strain. You can spread work across two distinct sections, as well. The good thing is that there are a lot of DIY tutorials to build a corner desk yourself, and you can make it of IKEA items, too.

There are corner desks in all the styles possible, so you will easily find a match for your own home office or just office. Besides, you can go for a floating corner desk, which will look more lightweight and won’t make your home office bulky – that’s a must for a very small office or even a nook. Get inspired!
