We at Common Sense Office Furniture will make sure to always meet the customer’s needs. This includes special office furniture like custom locally-built tables, standing workstations, or unique L-shaped desks.

Left and Right Handed L-Shape Desks

Sometimes, when purchasing office furniture it can be difficult to know whether you want your L-shaped desk to have a “right-handed return” or a “left-handed return”.

An L-shaped desk with a “left-handed return” will have the main desk portion in front of you, with the return on your left. Usually, the return has a file/file pedestal (drawers large enough for hanging files).

An L-shaped desk with a “right-handed return” is the opposite – the return will be on your right.

For most projects, we will provide a floor layout, so the client will be able to see how each desk will be installed into the office space. It’s very important that our clients look over the layout and notify us of any changes prior to approval so that we make sure our installers build the desks with the correct-handed returns.
