I want to replace the chairs through. They are both hand me downs from my parents.

Anyone who sells you a shelf like that is literally laughing at you behind your back. There must be 200 for markup vs cost of materials.
what would possess you to consider buying something like that for that price? The design is totally basic, and the shelves look cheap. You could probably pay a carpenter to melt you some bespoke shelves for less.

Yeah it’s definitely not cheap but neither is most modern furniture (excluding IKEA of course).
Highly recommend getting something beautiful made by a local craftsman if you want to spend that kind of money on a shelf. Don't buy shitty mass produced stuff at 300% markup when you can support a local builder.

Going to be moving soon but this is currently where the magic happens

Your place is incredible! I really dig the carpet, and I'm a big fan of those warm earthy colours (beige, brown, etc) as a base, combined with splashes of colour here and there so it doesn't look boring (for which the plants also help, of course). Hope your new place has many big windows like this place, 'cause all that light is sweet.

Damn, some of you are living the dream.

My living room setup after a big makeover:



My PC setup is a mess, so no picture until I'l figure it out.
running the pc from one side of the room to the tv on the other at the minute for some reason


Both of your places look super cozy. They are very neat and organised, but not 'sterile,' if that makes sense.
Also great use of the available space!

I need to clean the room, that why I was hesitant to even post it. I removed the pictures.
For what it's worth: I really appreciate you sharing, and that's a great collection! I like the way you display your Game Boy games.

I have my gaming space split into two areas: the extra room where I keep everything and the main living space where I play it.

Some pics of the game room:


I bought the cabinet in the corner 5 years ago half broken. Did some work on it and got another year or two of life out of it but the monitor barely works anymore, sadly. I can provide closer up pictures of the shelves if anyone's interested but I didn't want to fill this up with 20 pictures.

The biggest change since last year is I got a newer cabinet. This thing is a dream.
This is dope as hell. I would love to get myself an arcade cabinet (or pinball machine, for that matter) sometime. Shame about that monitor.
Btw, I'd definitely enjoy seeing a bit more of those shelves... 20 might be overkill tho ;)

Wow, incredibly clean. How do you handle your cable management? I assume there's a power outlet right behind your monitors? But then I still have literally no clue how your monitors are connected to your PC :P

Thinking about adding something like this to the left of my desk. Thoughts?


Very nice place!
"something like that" I think would work well. It seems like it'd fit perfectly between your desk and window, while not blocking much sunlight.
I'll agree with the people saying that almost €700 is way too expensive for something like that, so if you're asking about that specific one, I'd advise against it.

Thanks for the compliments, really appreciate the kind words! That room is bigger than it looks in the photo, there's a bed, dinner table and a dedicated bookshelf. Now I only need another shelf for the games (in the proces of trimming my collection so it will fit in one place).

I spent like 30 mins looking at local craftsman prices and there's no way anyone would build me something like that dude's shelf for less than $1,000 lol.

Y'all wildin'

Which desk do you have? I'm looking for a nice white desk. Yours looks like it has some cable management and adjustable height built-in.
It’s the Jarvis desk from Ergo Depot, and yeah mine is height adjustable and has two cable management trays installed in the back.

Thanks and yeah I was asking strictly if something like that would work next to my desk but a lot of people got distracted by the price of the unit I linked instead. I actually have the platform bed from FLOYD and can attest to the design, quality, etc. of their furniture but will probably look elsewhere for a bookcase/shelving system.

Lol yeah no idea where I would find a local craftsman near me, let alone one that could build a shelving unit for less than the price of the one I linked earlier.

Where did you get the plastic that goes over the wired shelves? I have the same shelving but never considered to do what you did until I just saw your pictures. I would definitely want to put my PC on the Wire rack.

Looks great! LOVE that TV stand, do you have a link to it? Also I noticed you mounted your Beam—I currently have mine sitting on my TV stand because I didn’t think I’d like the way it looks mounted (but I was wrong lol). Is the bass response reduced on the wall?
Thanks! Yeah here’s a link to the stand: https://www.allmodern.com/furniture/pdp/ranburne-tv-stand-for-tvs-up-to-65-inches-a000135030.html

I don’t think the bass is reduced, but didn’t really try it out not mounted. And I also hooked up a separate sub through the Sonos connect so it bumps pretty loud when I want it to!

The shelves I bought came with them. However you can purchase them separately from Amazon, you would just need to make sure to measure for the correct dimensions of your rack.

Here's my PC gaming setup, which I'm quite satisfied with knowing how tiny my flat is. I'll get a dual-screen as soon as I move to a bigger one, but for now, it'll do, and I'm satisfied with it!







I can't be arsed to share pictures of the PS4/Switch gaming setup yet, but will do at some point. It's nothing special though, just a big TV and some amiibos.

This is incredible. More desks with table clothes please.

How is the ventilation in that room? Looking at your pics again, I don't see a ceiling fan or any other cooling. I imagine it gets quite hot in there?

My room.
Pretty plain looking, I'm not too much into decorations. Is not very big but at least I have enough space to play psvr while standing.

49" LG 4K TV.
Consoles currently hooked up: PS3 (Behind the TV), PS4 Pro, Switch, Xbox one X.
Also off-camera, next to my desk there's a table with my steering wheel always ready to occupy the empty space in front of my TV.

Don't mind Jesus peeking from behind the router.

Loving the posters, care to share where you got them? Need that Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden.
It seems a bit expensive and I've never dealt with this site/business but this looks like an option at least...



----------------------------------------
Edit: I would definitely look into this site in some way before ordering as it seems a bit suspect. It may be perfectly fine but it seems a bit bare-bones...no user reviews, etc.

Finally time to post my setup instead of just gawking at everyone else's pristine setups. Excuse the lighting, photography is not my strong suit.

Tried to keep the wiring as clean as possible but very difficult with so many systems

Since I made some changes and additions/subtractions over the past year or so I thought I would add to this thread. I like to have everything accessable and playable, so a lot of it is just making sure everything is plugged in and ready to go. I work with what I can since the room is kind of set up weird with 2 door ways into the next room.

This is the main area


and a close up of some of the stuff on top.



Then off to the side is where the majority of the consoles live.



Virtual Boy has a vitualtap in it so it can be plugged in and played on the tv.

I love my shmups, specially vertical ones so I need the TV to be able to rotate into place for that action. This is actually an older pic, but it should get the idea across.



This is the PC that lives on the side for some light PC gaming, streaming, and using youtube and other media stuff on the tv. It has an old ass AMD FX8370 in it, with 16 gigs of ram and I believe a GTX 970. It also has a few of my wireless controllers plugged into it for charging, and a Pi 4 lives over here as well. For a few arcade games.



My wife got really into Disney Infinity Figures, and the game, I got a lot of amiibos.





And lastly this is my chart for how everything is wired up and feeding into the tv and capture devices. I keep different calibrations on my TV for gaming, and for UHD HDR movies and such, so I switch inputs on the tv based on what I'm doing. My receiver allows for 3 HDMI outputs so 2 go to the TV, for these different inputs, and 1 goes to a capture device.
