Most of us spend some time throughout the week at a desk. Whether it is for our job, do some writing and paperwork after work, or play video games over the weekend, it is a necessity for anyone's life.
How can you make the most of the set up so you have the best experience possible? Here are some of our must-haves.
We get it, you can just place your drink on the table. But how often does your drink get in the way of a comfortable seating position, arm resting position or even prove to be a hazard when you spill?!
Some desks, like our RGB Gaming Table come built-in with a cupholder that swings out. Trust us when we say that it is a godsend once you've tried it! You get more space on your table for your body, paperwork or whatever accessories, and you don't have to worry about any spillages since the drink is safely secured AWAY from the table!
We think that we can get away with stacking paper on top of one another at our desk, until it's time to actually look for something in the pile! Keep it neat and tidy with a paper organiser, which gives you the ability to segment and split the paperwork and equipment by category.
You can get them incredibly cheap from any stationary or department store, and along with the better organisation, you also have a MUCH neater set up. Look good, feel good. Feel good, do good.
Modern desks usually include a desktop or laptop. In this ever increasing digital and electronic world, it's not a nice-to-have, it's just expected that there is hardware for us to access the internet.
A comprehensive set up includes a range of gadgets and add-ons such as printers, chargers and the like. Leaving the cables dangling around is not only messy, but can often lead to accidental unplugs, struggles to find the right connection and an overall frustrating experience.
Getting a good cable organiser is a great, cheap solution. Get all the cables drawn into a local spot on your set up, label your wires and you are set. It looks so much better, clean and spacious and you'll never have to worry about kicking the charger off, or pulling the wrong cable!
Welcome to the new decade, where phones can EASILY be wirelessly charged simply by placing them on a surface that delivers electricity. Any opportunity to get more battery is welcomed, particularly since our lives revolve around our phones and the drainage is definitely a first world problem.
Getting a desk with a wireless charging option, such as our RGB Gaming Desk, is a great option because all you need to do is leave your phone alone, and let the desk do the work for you! Our charge station is specifically placed away from the main desk space, so you don't get distracted...
There's nothing more de-motivating than a set up that is too clinical, super basic without any personality. Your space needs to be bespoke to you, while it's great to keep things simple, don't hesitate to indulge in a bit of detail!
The team here at Ewin have a variety of passions and hobbies, so between us we have a range of small desktop toys to break up the mood. Model cars, pictures of our loved ones, and plush anime toys will be found on each desk! Make sure it doesn't take up too much room, isn't too fragile to take a knock but most importantly, is a nod to what's important in your life. There are so many options!
If you're needing that kick to make the most of your time at your desk, these must-haves are a great way to start. After all, getting all the right equipment is usually what you need for best performance!
