If you’re a serious PC gamer, chances are that you spend a lot of hours sitting on your computer desk. Having the perfect desk requires having a desk that can handle your monitor, has the perfect height, and feels comfortable enough to sit on it for long durations. Most PC gamers focus on getting the perfect computer and then forget all about the desk and the ergonomics of their chairs. Most people think that a desk is a very clear-cut concept, something that you can place a monitor, keyboard, and mouse on. That is a flawed approach, a bad desk usually shows its true face after being used for a while; you’ll notice your body aching and your hands getting rigid.

We’ll be presenting you with the best methods used to create the perfect desk space that won’t cost you an arm and a leg, literally.

Know Your Room

You may want to get yourself an executive desk, as if you’re on the 50th floor of a skyscraper, but if you live in an average sized apartment, I am afraid you won’t be getting that 8 feet wide desk. You need to find the best size that is going to be practical to install in your room, so you wouldn’t take up too much space of your room and consequently clutter your desk space. If you happen to have some extra room then you can install an L-shaped corner desk.

Ergonomics

Ergonomics simply means how comfortable to the body a desk or a chair is. A tall desk requires a taller chair to not strain your body. Some desks offer an adjustable trays so you could set the height to a comfortable position. An adjustable chair is recommended to make sure you are in a comfortable and healthy sitting position with some extra options. Using a monitor mount is one of the best ergonomic adjustments that you can treat yourself to. It helps you adjust the monitor to the best position of viewing so you wouldn’t risk straining your back or neck and reduce the stress on your body.

Looking Good

Desks have an aesthetic element that should be always taken into consideration. When you spend a lot of time on a desk, whether you’re working or gaming, then it’s crucial for the desk to look good, otherwise you’ll feel like you’re doing a very long homework and need to sleep as soon as possible. A lot of gamers opt for tempered glass when they have an open-air station with colorful LED lights which make it look luminous and pretty under low-light conditions. When you consider the desk size and material for décor purposes always make sure to leave some room for the case to breathe.

Gaming Made Comfortable

Once you start organizing and beautifying your desk, you’ll notice a significant change in your performance in gaming sessions; feeling comfortable is directly related to performance. Getting the perfect desk space does take time as if you’re trying to pick your furniture all over again, with many options and DIY guides available online. You should put some time into researching desks and chairs according to your preferences because it really helps in the long run.
