A computer keyboard and monitor occupies tons of real estate on a desk. An L-shaped desk provides a return for the computer monitor, keyboard, telephone, possibly the printer, and the inbox. All of it is just a 90-degree swivel (not 180 degrees). The desk in front of you can stay clear except for the task at hand and the memorabilia you love. If money is tight, and inexpensive folding table serves as a great return.
