Ideas for Why You Might Benefit from a Corner Desk

It’s pretty obvious what a corner desk is and where exactly in the office it goes, since people aren’t likely to think that their very specific shape is designed to fit around the fridge in the office kitchen. That same specific shape also makes it possible to store more things on top of it than you would have otherwise been able to if you had a regular type of desk. But while it it easy to assume that it can be used for a variety of different things because of the special characteristics, are any of them worth you getting this particular item? Can it maybe come with a built in fridge underneath, is it capable of independent thought, can it do your job for you without your boss noticing? A BIG no to all of the above, but here’s what it can do.

Corner office desk

The biggest draw of the corner office desk is of course its sheer size that allows it to fit in a corner so snugly. I mention this because people seem to think this would make it a waste of space that doesn’t leave much room in the office left for you to even be able to breathe let alone move around, but that is actually far from the truth. While it is true that these desks do take up a bit of room, that is room that they use in the most efficient manner possible. The reasoning here is simple, while you aren’t left with a lot of free floor space, you do in return get a much bigger area where you can put your documents, computer, and any other items vital for the work you are doing.

Speaking of your items, the corner office desk also allows you to easily sort all of them and always have any of what you consider to be the most important tools close to hand for your convenience. This is incredibly useful if you find that your computer seems to be taking up the lion’s share of your available workspace and you don’t really have any space left to put anything else close to you. This can cause your desk to become very cluttered and cause your productivity to drop due to having to spend a lot of time simply searching for a file that you remember you put in a pile, but can’t remember which of the dozen piles exactly.

Finally, instead of just sorting your items easier you can also completely divide them by the nature of the task you might need the item for. For example, you can place your computer to one end of the desk and dedicate the other to your documents so that there will never have to be a sorting problem ever again. These, along with a few other uses that I’m sure you can come up with on your own, make the corner office desk a good choice for both corporate and home offices.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
