By now, you’re probably well aware of the fact that standing desks are incredibly healthy when it comes to your posture, as well as being hugely practical in office environments, which is why our first tip for you today is based solely on purchasing a standing desk for your multi-monitor desk setup.

Ensure the displays match

If you do decide you want a multi-monitor desk, whether you’re going with dual monitors, three monitors, or even four if you’re seriously blessed, for the ultimate experience you must ensure that your displays match.

To make your desk setup more practical and help enhance the overall aesthetics of it, try to place the desk in a part of the room where it will be flooded with natural light.

If you’re a gamer, you may do more of your gaming in the evening when it’s dark, in which case you’ll want a natural light source that doesn’t reflect onto your monitors. Smart bulbs are particularly popular amongst gamers as you can personalize the colors and use them to set the atmosphere as you game.

Make sure your desk has more than enough space

Having multiple monitors set up on your PC is cool, there’s no denying that. What isn’t cool, however, is finding that you’ve purchased a desk that was far too small, which is barely large enough for your monitors, let alone anything else.

When you create a multi-monitor desk, you must make sure that you go with a desk that provides a surface top that is more than large enough to accommodate your monitors, keyboard, printer, and anything else you will have to store on your desk.

Remember, when creating multiple monitor computer desks, the more free space your desk provides, the better.

Be sure to switch between seating and standing

We’ve already talked about the importance of a standing desk, but if you are looking for desk setup ideas that utilize multiple monitors at once, it’s important to alternate between seating and standing.

Sitting for too long is bad for your health, so be sure to switch between periods of sitting and periods of standing.

With an adjustable standing desk such as the SOLOS V2 Premium Standing Desk, or Glass Standing Desk, you can adjust the height of the desk with the push of a button.

Keep your desk tidy

Another handy tip for anybody looking for desk setup ideas involving more than one monitor is to ensure that you always keep your desk tidy and free of clutter.

If you’re using a multi-monitor desk, you want the star of the show to be your multiple monitor setup. The last thing you want is for your eyes to be drawn to mountains of paper, snack wrappers, empty bottles, and other detritus which should be thrown in the trash or filed neatly somewhere.

Remember ‘tidy desk, tidy mind’.
