Most Popular IKEA Products for the Home Office Computer Setup 2019
A lot of the stuff I have in my home office is from IKEA. With their modern designs and cost-effective pricing; IKEA desks, chairs, decoration, and trinkets have pretty much become staples for any computer setup but which ones are the most popular? Hi I’m David and these are what I think are the most popular IKEA products for the home office. So starting off with the biggest piece of furniture for the office, the desk. And IKEA has a lot of popular options and colors to choose from. Looking for a super budget option? Most people will look at the Linnmon and Adils desk combo. Starting from just $25 and stays well under a $100 even for larger combinations, pretty much everyone starts here. Or if you’re looking for something more durable and adjustable the professional Bekant series is available as a motorized sit-stand desk or I also really like their adjustable sitting desk for improved ergonomics. And there are definitely a lot of other options that are just as popular but the most popular Ikea desk in my opinion isn’t even a desk but an innovative hack of putting together a kitchen countertop and some drawer units. (1 part kitchen + 1 part drawer) Specifically the combo of the Karlby Countertop and the Alex Drawers is my front runner. The Karlby countertop is available in 74 or 98 inches long, and available in different stains over the walnut veneer. And throw that on top of a couple Alex drawers and Adils legs and you’ve got yourself a great looking, super large, and very solidly constructed desk for a decent price. Next up the chair, which is probably the most important piece of furniture in your office since most of us are sitting all day long. The most desirable office chairs are easily the likes of models from high end companies like Herman Miller or Steelcase but not everyone can afford to spend over a grand on a chair. And while I think the IKEA Volmar is a good consideration as a highly adjustable budget pick, the Markus is clearly the most popular choice. With a super solid build construction, comfortable mesh back and headrest, and a price tag under $200. It’s the universal budget pick for office chairs. So after taking care of the major pieces of furniture for the office next let’s look at the accessories to dress up the desk setup. And I think the key to a great looking computer setup is great cable management or at least finding ways to hide them. Some simple ways to hide them are to throw them inside something like a Kvissle Cable Management Box or for a more high tech option the Roma box with the wireless charging pad on top. But the most popular accessory is the one you often don’t even see, The Signum Rack quietly hides underneath many peoples desks and neatly stores all those cables and power adapters away from sight. Cheap, Simple and highly effective. It’s a go-to cable management solution for pretty much any desk setup. One of the reasons I really enjoy shopping at IKEA isn’t just for the big products but also all the little accessories and options they offer, which opens up so many Ikea Hacking possibilities. But the most popular IKEA Hack for the office is a simple Monitor Stand, combining a shelf and some Capita legs and voila better monitor ergonomics. And thanks to IKEA’s extensive product line up you can customize this build to variety of colors, sizes and leg designs to match pretty much any desk design. And finally some decoration. The simplest way to dress up the office is by adding some artwork or photos in some Ribba picture frame on the wall. Or if you aren’t artistically talented just grab a ready-made piece of art. Looking to add some extra flair to your setup, the Dioders work in a pinch to add colorful ambient lighting, but the most popular piece of Ikea Decoration is the Ikea Fejka, an artificial plant. While this may seem like an odd choice, this Zen-like plant adds a little color and warmth to any modern setup, and there’s no watering necessary, which is perfect for me. So those are what I think are the most popular IKEA products for the home office. But do you agree with my choices? Let me know in the comments below. But hope you guys enjoyed this one. You know what to do and I’ll see you in the next article.
