Corner or Free Design - A corner desk is placed in the corner. Generally it is not placed in the middle of the room. The free design is the simple rectangle desk that you can place anywhere you wish. It gives you more flexibility. In future if you want to rearrange furniture and belongings in the room then you can place such a desk at a different place. The corner desk can be L-shaped or I-shaped design. If you choose a corner desk then it should have sufficient width. It is difficult to spread your legs further if a corner desk has a small width. It can put strain on your legs and body if occasionally you cannot stretch your feet in front on the floor.
Self Assembled L shaped Computer Desk - Made by companies like Sauder these desks are the ones you find in big box retail stores as well as major office supply retail outlets. These desks are fairly easy to assemble but can be flimsy. They are often made from particle board fiber board or other wood product materials rather than solid natural wood. They are very economical and fit well in most small corners. For a little extra (but less than $150) Techni Mobili has some very stylish alternatives.
Accommodate More Than One Person - Decide beforehand if the desk will be used only by you or more than one person. This is an important question to ask before designing a wall side desk. A standard rectangle desk can be used by four or more people at the same time. That is not the case with an L-shaped or I-shaped desk that does not have sufficient length. If you deal with clients at home then take a look at home office desks that can be used by more than one person. Your clients will feel comfortable while dealing with you. If someone else will be working along with you at the same time then take the opinion of the other person as well before you buy the home office desk.
Real Wood L shaped Computer Desk - You can spend a lot more money for a real wood desk. These desks are sturdier and last longer than the cheaper alternatives. They also include more features like built in storage space.
Simple L-Shaped or U-Shaped Design - Simple rectangle desk can be placed anywhere in the room. L-shaped desk are suitable for the corner space. U-shaped design is used in the middle of the room. This type of desk may have a slight curve or a complete U-shape. The U-shaped design gives you more functionality and flexibility. You can keep your work related items on your sides as well. You will have access to many more items at your arms length. However a desk with such a design cannot be placed anywhere. It can be difficult to place it somewhere else if you decide to rearrange everything in the room.
Desks to be seen from all angles: as mentioned above some desks were always designed to stand against a wall. The original cabinet makers therefore spent less time finishing the rear elevation of the desk sometimes even leaving it with relatively unfinished timbers. Other desks were however always designed to make an impression on anyone entering a room and facing the person sitting behind the desk. In this instance the "rear" of the desks would be highly polished panelled and often decorated or carved. Partners’ Desks also serve this purpose in offering an interesting and usable rear facade.
