Finding a cheap L shaped desk is not so challenging, if you know where to look. There are many products available for under $200 and a few more can be purchased for less than $100. Though many models are lower in price, they will look professional in an office with shelving and file cabinets, when those additional pieces are situated nearby. The main thing to consider when choosing the right model is function. While all cheap L shaped desk models have the same basic configuration, there are variations in the amount of shelving and some will come with extra pieces, like a hutch. Slots for CDs and computer software may also be found in those with hutches or on some models with a simple shelf attached for the computer monitor.

Computer desks with glass surfaces and steel frames come in many different styles and options. Some have black frames with clear glass, while others have the same black frame with tinted black glass. Other models with a nickel finish frame may be available with tinted glass in blue or aqua. The frame itself can be very different from one model to the next. Some are slightly curved for a very contemporary look. Others are more traditionally shaped with straight lines.

There are many places to look for a cheap L-shaped desk. Office supply stores usually carry a few models to select from. Some brands have the option of a single surface with a side attachment that can be added later. If you are not in a hurry to set up the entire office or can do without the additional surface, you can always buy the side attachment later. Other models may have matching file cabinets or shelving units that can help create a more unified office space. You will want to consider how much space is needed for working and for storage. If you will be using a computer, it is best to look for a model with a sliding keyboard drawer and even a dedicated space for the monitor. Such models can be found for under $100. The more stylish products can cost up to $200, but may still be worth the price, if one is trying to achieve a certain look in the work space. Another place to a cheap L shaped desk is in retail stores. While you may not find all models set up in the store, their online sites can show you just how much choice there is in computer desks.
