Studies show that an organised desk with optimum layout for ergonomics helps improve work productivity and reduce stress. Recent years have given rise to people working from home. Dining tables have been used as a student desk and kitchens have become home offices; perched on a bar stool at the kitchen island. Now, more than ever, people need effective home workspaces and they don’t need custom fitouts to achieve them. Amart has an excellent range of corner desks suited to any room of the house. Here’s everything you need to know about choosing one for your home.
Aside from knowing the dimensions that will fit within your space, there are a few other important factors you may wish to consider.
Space – How much will you need to fit on top of your desk? Can the desk accommodate your equipment comfortably?
Location - Just because it’s a corner desk doesn’t mean it needs to sit in a corner. You could also place it in the command position facing into the room or with one side against a wall.
Storage capacity – How many drawers will you need? Do you require a filing cabinet to slide underneath it, too?
Set-up - Which side of your desk will your computer sit on? Ideally, you should set up one side of your desk for work and the other side as a dedicated table or storage space.
Style – Do you have an existing style in the room that you’d like to match? Would that style go best with natural materials like timber or synthetic materials like veneer or laminate?
Price– Keep your budget in mind while shopping. Amart has a great selection of affordable executive desks for home.
A corner desk gives you options! They use space very efficiently, especially in a small room. Now, while the corner of your office is a great location for a corner computer desk, if you don’t have an office, it can also be placed in another room of the house, turning it into a multifunction zone for a student desk or workspace. What’s more, it doesn’t even need to be in a corner - it could also work in a passive area where the return of one side of the desk can be what defines the section as a home office.
There are a few key features of our corner desks that make them popular because they improve desk organisation and therefore productivity.
Having a desk in the corner of a room or office frees up space in the rest of the room. You could keep this free section clear to give the feeling of a bigger space or you could use it for filing cabinets, bookcases, other office accessories, or even a sofa. L-shaped workstations also give scope to having two people work at them if you choose the right size and set-up.
L-shaped desks provide plenty of space for a productive workday in your home office. Amart’s modern designs can be placed in a variety of orientations in your home office - from in the corner, to in the command position, or even with the side against a wall and the other side defining a square for your work zone.
Create your dream home office space with a high-quality corner desk from Amart’s office furniture range. We have everything you need for working from home at great prices, including executive chairs, office desks, standing desks, and filing cabinets.
An L-shape desk gives scope for more storage; to have everything you need in arm’s reach. Here are a couple of special features to look out for:
Shelves and drawers - Under-desk shelves or an above-desk hutch provide a dedicated spot for a printer and equipment. For smaller stationery items, fixed drawers or a matching mobile pedestal of drawers can sit under or next to your desk for a coordinated look and organisation.
Versatile desktop - If you’d like to convert your desk into a sit-stand space to give your back and legs a break, consider adding a height adjustable desk from our standing desk range to go on top. Simply mount your laptop or computer onto the riser for an adjustable corner desk to take you from sitting to standing.
Desks come in a variety of materials and finishes. At Amart, we stock a large range of desks to suit all budgets. Some of the popular corner office desks in our range are made from the materials below:
Laminate - A scratch resistant, easy to clean material that comes in modern finishes and is easy to maintain.
Timber and timber veneer - This combination gives you an attractive wood look for a more affordable price than solid timber.
MDF - Provides a smooth and consistent work surface that is stronger than plywood and particle board.

Corner desks are great for saving space because their L-shape offers versatility to place them in a corner, or in the command position, or even against a wall to define an office desk zone. Amart has every type of desk for working and studying from home.
The major advantage of a corner desk is that it’s particularly good for saving space in a small room. A disadvantage is that it could limit your view if you’re pointing at the wall, which could make a conventional home office desk a more appealing option.
