There’s nothing quite like having a computer space where you can attend to all of your professional, personal, and recreational needs. Sure, there’s more to life than being sat in front of a screen, but when we can afford some time to unwind without much else to do, or when we need to manage our personal affairs in the most convenient manner possible, it can be nice to have a space directly arranged for such an effort.
Achieving that, however, can take a little bit of time to get right. Often, it means making the right investments and choosing products and utilities that provide us convenience or allow us to properly differentiate our time.
For instance, ergonomic furniture you can sit in for hours (taking appropriate breaks to move around when you can), helps your back and posture like almost nothing else over time. Outfitting your perfect home/gaming office, then, may operate among the following guidelines:
Get The Lighting Right
If you get the lighting right, then you can spend time looking at a screen with reduced eye strain. Overhead lights and soft lamps can work wonders here. But of course, a gaming space can also benefit from colored and textured light that makes the space comforting to be in.
Often, RGB light strips can be used around a desk and turned on when appropriate, giving a radically different feel to the room. Adjustable soft lamps that can be angled in distinct orientations will also ensure a comfortable presence in your office space, without feeling too obnoxious. Here you can split easily between a professional and personal aesthetic.
Making sure you have useful utilities available is an excellent use of your time and investment. This may involve a fully set-up printer and scanner with paper reserves for some time, as well as investing in an ergonomic keyboard should you wish to type for long periods at a time – often these are softer on our fingers and hand positions than the membrane keyboards that offices often invest in thanks to how cheap they are to produce.
Of course, other utilities, like standing desks, are becoming more and more popular thanks to their general health conveniences. You don’t have to spend too much money here, but a nice planned setup is better than almost any alternative.
Docks, Holders & Dividers
Having space on your desk will be determined by how well you can store your belongings, especially your personal and professional goods in the same space. A controller holder, for instance, can make a nice display from a tool you use to game with, while also charging the batteries.
However, a nice ring-binder folder can be placed at the side of the desk, giving you immediate access to your printed materials should you need them for reference. Of course, a nice divide between desktops helps two, as using two user profiles on your computer to differentiate between work and play can help you separate the two appropriately.
With this advice, you’re certain to perfect that home/gaming office space as you deserve to.
