In English, a laptop is called a laptop (laptop), which literally can be translated as "on your knees." It is logical, because it is a portable computer, characterized by mobility and compactness, in contrast to the cumbersome stationary. We are used to appreciating it because we can read the news by placing the device on our lap, or calmly put it on the bed to watch a movie. However, what to do, for example, for a writer for whom a laptop is not just an interactive subject, but part of the work, 8 hours on his knees will not replace a full-fledged table. In such cases, appropriate furniture should be selected.
When the apartment is in a typical panel house, and you need to figure out how to organize the workplace, the most ergonomic way will be to install a corner table, it is convenient and it is functional. It will be easy to place on it not only a laptop, but also other useful equipment, be it an audio system, printer or scanner. In turn, you will get a lot of free space directly on the countertop, where your favorite cactus will fit and your elbows will comfortably fit.
In this case, it is worth considering what kind of configuration is suitable for the layout of your home.
If there is not enough space, pay attention to the diagonal view of the corner table for a laptop. It may be small, but one edge, as a rule, has a slightly more oblong shape than the other. The position of the laptop, unlike a stationary computer, can be changed, which means that the options where to look can be different: in a corner, wall, window.
The second type is called perpendicular . For such a working area, more space is required. Here the tone is set by dimensions. In fact, you get a worktop in the form of a 90 degree angle with two pedestals on each side. This is a large multi-functional computer desk for different types of PCs.
Having chosen the configuration, then you should decide on the design of the corner table.
To do this, it is worth considering what exactly it will be equipped with:
- Boxes and shelves;
For a small diagonal table in the apartment, an additional section in the form of a cabinet is hardly suitable. Here it is better to choose a cabinet displaced outside the countertop with drawers and several shelves to accommodate the necessary stationery and books.
The office option can be more massive and be a computer desk with an add-on. For example, a laptop will be located on the left, and the right side is represented by a document storage area in the form of open or closed shelves. Diagonal-perpendicular versions of computer tables imply a large area of rational use of the working area. Therefore, here you can install a full-fledged cabinet with or without a door, numerous shelves in the form of a superstructure, or one or two cabinets with drawers, based on the size of the countertop.
Materials and Design
Wooden furniture is still in demand, so it is not surprising that today you can buy or order a high-quality laptop table made of natural wood or its textural substitute - a modern laminated chipboard or MDF.
This model is perfect not only for the classic interior.
If the room is dominated by elements of modern decor, a good color scheme would be the choice of a table in white, gray and even bright colors, for example, orange or blue. Also relevant was the combination of manufacturing materials. The hi-tech style extends to everything glass and metal, very interesting in this case will be the combination of a typical wooden tabletop with frosted glass drawers and a pair of chrome legs for support.
Too much carried away by modern trends is still not worth it. When ordering a full glass worktop for a workplace, keep in mind that such a material is prone to the formation of defects in the form of scratches and stains.
If you need to equip a place for your laptop, take a look at the empty corner in your room. This is where both a small table and a large multifunctional furniture space with shelves, cabinets and even a superstructure in the form of a berth can fit perfectly. The wonders of modern design, of course, have a price, but at the same time they will provide full comfort and benefit.
