I need some inspiration!

So I have a big U shaped desk that I hate with a passion, then I have this little costco sit stand desk with a glass whiteboard top that I bought for my daughter (doing math homework is fun now), well I kind of fell in love with that so bought one for myself because they were cheap and the perfect size if all you want to park on it is a laptop.  Anyhoo, I was recently fortunate enough to land a 100% remote work job and am now in the early process of figuring out a home office set up, I have opted to chuck the ushaped desk and am starting off with with costco desk which unfortunately is too small to even fit half of what I want.   Anyway here is where I am at:



I know I need to go bigger (and maybe use the current desk as a side desk), my keyboards don't even fit on this desk and I still need room for at least 1 more laptop.  Anyway show me what you all got so maybe I can glean some ideas from the mob.

edit - don't mind the window coverings new ones are on the way, up until a week ago this was the uncared for 7% of our home's square footage we dedicated to the 8 days a year my parents visited.

This thread couldn't wait until I got my new keyboard, monitor arms/new monitor and portrait of Idi Amin Dada in? Fine. Here's my current desk.



Edit: Salamok, I too work from home and it's going to get more serious shortly, I'll post an updated picture of my desk when I redo it in a week or so.

Why not, I'm not ashamed (not really).



I too have been working from home this month - like to keep things separated. And looking at the image now, no I did not know that that plunger was there, and I have no idea why it is there.

Man my perspective sucks on this shot. Those two Rift sensors are actually level.

Also those of you with sit/stand desks any preferences?  For example what are you using? what do you and don't you like about it?  I am currently considering getting an uplift desk looks like it has strong motors (350 lbs+) and I can get a ginormous 30"x80" or even a decent sized  L.  The most enjoyable desk I have owned was a more utilitarion looking version of what Gimfain posted (ie just a large work surface w/o drawers, pedestals or anything to bang my knees against).

If you move your desk, sure, casters. If you don't, casters are trash collecting garbage. I personally hate cutouts in desks also, but that's just me.

Where is your actual computer in that setup?  Desktop on the floor?

I'll see about taking a pic of my disaster area desk tonight when I get home.  Unless you're somehow interested in my work setup.

Lights off:


The desk is made from a hollow core door I sprayed liberally with truck bedliner and some IKEA Finnvard trestles.  84x30 surface and it's already crowded.

My pc is sitting on the floor and the TV I am using as a monitor is sitting in an old library carrel. Very posh... :eyeroll:

My desk has a lot of clutter on it right now, maybe this thread will motivate me to clean some of it off so I can take a picture without being crushed by shame.

Third monitor added. Next up, false wall for the cable nest. Also, cleaning up the cable nest. Will probably do that when I get a new computer tho.

Bunk, why is there a toilet plunger under your desk (left)?  Like, for MMO's?    why so serious?

I didn't even realize it was there until I looked at the picture.

I *think* it was from when I had my 3d printer still on the desk, and I was using it as a dowel to hold the filament spool.
