As you go through our desk builder and select your desktop style, you'll get the chance to pick which side you want your extension piece to mount on.
These laminate styles have been personally curated and selected for their popularity. If you're looking for a different Wilsonart laminate desktop, you can shop their entire collection of options and reach out to us for a custom quote.

Cutting-Edge, Patent-Pending Design
Take a look at our V2 desk frame design, which comes with discreet built-in mounting holes that allow you to attach accessories directly to your new frame. This mounting method, which is so robust that you can even hang a hammock, lets you enjoy your desk in a plethora of new ways. Stay tuned as we release other exciting frame attachments—including CPU holders, desk extensions, and power strips—to help keep your workstation furnished with all of the right tools.
Please note: The Under-Desk Hammock is compatible with the UPLIFT V2 frame, but not with the UPLIFT V2 Commercial frame, due to interference with the crossbar.
Enjoy Advanced Features Thanks to the Advanced Keypad
Save time and effort by setting your preferred heights on the Advanced Digital Memory Keypad. Touch one of four memory buttons and voila—your desk quickly adjusts to your chosen sitting or standing height. Unlock all of the features of your UPLIFT Desk, like one-touch adjustments, memory features, keypad (child) lock, high/low height limits, and more—just by adding this keypad to your L-shaped desk.
Offices with a lot of walk-through foot traffic, or where children are present, will love the new safety features we’ve included in our UPLIFT V2 frame. Anti-collision sensitivity and keypad (child) lock are two new functions that give you assurance that your desk doesn't raise or lower unless you want it to. On the off chance that it does come into contact with a person or an object, your desk is smart enough to know to stop and reverse, which gives you time and space to remove what was in the way.
After you set all four of your memory keys for your sitting, standing, perching, and guest preferences, you can also adjust your desk's upper and lower limits, an additional safety feature that makes sure your desk doesn't bump into shelves above or file cabinets below.
And to minimize distractions from your work, the Advanced Digital Memory Keypad includes an auto-dark LED display, which dims after 10 seconds.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click here for FAQs for our UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame.
- Are there any other laminate colors available?
We use Wilsonart laminate and can order you a custom desktop in any of the plethora of colors they have available. Just shop Wilsonart's selection and contact our sales team for a custom quote.
- Can I get a center cut-out ergo edge on my corner desk?
If you are interested in a desk with a center cut-out and are willing to trade desk size for it, check out our Eco Curved Desks.
- Can I order my desk in a custom size?
We offer these laminate desks in custom sizes. Just call our sales team to get set up with your custom desktop.
- What is the difference between these desks and the other L-shaped laminate desks you offer?
These custom L-shaped laminate desks are made to order and have a longer lead time. They are also offered in a wider variety of colors than our stock laminate desktops. If you aren't happy with the color selection we offer here, you can call us to inquire about other custom color choices available.
- Are laminate desktops softer than other types of desktops?
The laminate desktop is softer than a bamboo or solid-wood desktop. However, we have designed our UPLIFT 3-leg desk with crossbar support. With the crossbars fully installed, your laminate top won't sag!
- Where are the desktops made?
We use a local laminate manufacturer to make the desktops.
- How should I clean and care for my desk?
Laminate provides a durable surface that can be cleaned up with warm, soapy water or Lysol wipes.
- Can I choose a different location for my grommet holes?
Yes! If you would like us to place your grommet holes elsewhere on the desk, just give our sales team a call! They will be more than happy to assist you.
- Why would I want a laminate desk—isn't that dated?
Laminate is a durable, economical option for desktops. We offer it in a variety of colors, to fit in with your office decor. For more information regarding our complete line of desktops, check out our desktop brochure.
- How are your desktops rated?
In technical speak, our desktops are E-1-rated and feature 45-lb-density particle board with a 3 mm PVC edge.
- Is this desk still stable, even though it comes in two pieces?
When you receive your desktop, you will install two support brackets to connect the two tops together. There are also two crossbars that run along the underside of the desk. Both of these support measures combine to provide a very sturdy desk.
- Can I get a sample of the laminate before I purchase the desk, to make sure that it matches with my office?
Our sales team can help you order a sample of the Wilsonart laminate surface, so you can check it out before you buy it. Just give us a ring!
- How loud is 50 decibels?
For comparative purposes, 50 decibels falls somewhere in between the loudness of your computer and your refrigerator. That means you can go from sitting to standing without disturbing your coworkers.
- Are either the white or black laminate tops eco desktops?
No, all of the desktops on this listing are laminate. The main difference between the laminate desktop and the eco top is the outer finish. A laminate top has a banded edge that is separate from the top of the desk. The eco desktop, available in our other listings, is powder-coated to provide an uninterrupted finish on all sides.
