I redid my desk to utilize the full(er) potential of my two desks:

Y/N?

It depends on what context. The second is better for your own working space. I love having a desk that goes around me (too bad I don't have the space for it). But it looks like there's space in front of the left desk (between the desk and the lamp). That's difficult-to-utilize space there. So the first one appears more optimal from a floor space perspective, the second one appears to be better for more personal working space.

I'm the only one who really uses this room and I don't really move from this chair! My roommate also exists, but his computer is in a different room. He only just sleeps here.

I would go completely nuts with a desk like that. I need way more space to place my feet in lots of different ways.

lol, then my desk is for you. I have an absurd amount of ways to place my feet.

Definitely the wraparound style.

A question though: Are you right or left handed? If you're right handed, you might find it working even better if you put the wrapped desk to the right of your main computer. Then you only have to turn a little bit to write or make use of the open desk to your right. If you're left handed, ignore my comments, it probably works fine already.

I'm right handed. My bed is on the left side.

Perhaps then... leave the desks as they are, but move the main computer to the left desk. Try it, ya might like it. ;)

I've got a corner desk at work, with the computer in the corner section. The left side is for piles of stuff, and the phone. The right side is where I can actually get work done.

Agreed. As a lefty, I would much prefer your setup, so you might want to swap it if you can. It looks like a left-handed kitchen to me (yes, they exist; there are lots of things designed for a particular hand type that you'd never know about if you weren't left-handed :roll: )

But I vote for the new arrangement.
