    18 L-Shaped Desks That Will Maximize Your Home Office Space

    Raise your hand if you've been affected by cramped desk space. OK, hands down because we've got the solution to your WFH woes.

    Note: Before you strap on your building belt, it may take up to five days for your new desk to arrive (unless otherwise noted).

    1. A sturdy L-shaped desk designed with a metal frame prepared to hold some of your largest plant babies. Since it comes with two tier-shelves, you'll still have enough space to add your desk supplies and another plant (or five).
