I am a huge fan of nice workstations and great interiors. It has been my dream to build a workspace for a long time, but for different reasons, it never happened. A few years ago, I made my first workspace with a small computer table, a chair, a laptop, and an extra monitor. Later, I moved to another flat and thought that I needed a new workspace.
That’s how I started building my current workspace. As a software developer and blogger, I spend countless hours sitting at my desk, and I wanted to create a space that was not only functional and practical but also motivating and expressive of who I am and what I like.
So here is the detail of my workstation setup, for coding I use Dell latitude series laptop with logitech MK240 keyboard. Nowdays I am not using an extra monitor and I am okay with that. For other needs, I have the Sennheiser headphone along with a IKEA headphone stand, an adjustable mobile holder, and a tiny Sony bluetooth speaker. Oh yes, I have a notebook and penholder which I love most.
To create a workspace that was both functional and beautiful, I added a few personal touches that were meaningful to me. Besides coding, I love plants, writing random thoughts, and traveling to new places. To reflect these, I placed money plants in the wooden shelves, framed poems that I wrote, and a mouse pad with a world map remainds me ’the world is wide, life is short’. Also, I am planning to add some posters with my favourite quotes.
That’s my little workspace setup details. Nothing fancy, just beautiful for me and I am grateful for that.
Here is the full list of items used in my setup:
- Dell Latitude 5530 laptop with a Logitech MK270R Wireless Keyboard. I have a ZEB-NS2000 laptop stand
and use Dell 22" monitor.
- Lenova Ideapad 320 as secondary laptop.
- Sennheiser HD250BT for daily use with IKEA Mojlighet Headphone Stand.
