Under The Eaves: A Tidy Multi-Monitor Workspace

Architectural details sometimes put a damper on your home office planning. Today's featured workspace embraces the layout of the room with a low desk and a floating shelf to squeeze in where a taller desk wouldn't fit.

Eaves, staircases, unfortunately spaced closet doors, and all manner of architectural quirks can really cramp your office designs. Today's workspace is the home office of Lifehacker reader KaRu555. The best spot for his home office was under a sloping overhang. The overhang sloped down low enough that a high-backed desk with any sort of hutch or monitor rack was out of the question. Despite that limitation, he instead used a floating monitor shelf and routed the wires down through the drywall. All the cables are wrangled in a cable loom under the desk, the computer itself is in one of the legs of the desk, and the other is used for storage. You can take a closer look in the gallery below.

    Looks great! you have every gadget under the sun but a wireless keyboard and mice! =/ haha

    I like it. Very clean and excellent job of combating cable clutter. Inspirational

    "through the drywall"? Did you miss the conduit to the right of the monitor shelf?

    Never saw much point in a wireless keyboard/mouse, Stan V. Those devices don't tend to go too far from the desk (at least for my use).

    The setup looks nice, but I'd suggest using Synergy to eliminate the need for the second keyboard/mouse.
