You will when they're looking through that window!
Prefer pervs to molotov cocktails. Within reason.

it’s my first real proper corner! Used always be at the main tv, then my wife became pregnant so she slept a lot on the couch in front of the tv as it was the only place she could get comfortable.

so I then got a small coffee table and put our secondary tv on it in the corner of the same room. That worked until our little boy arrived and now it’s a padded area with toys and playmats!

then with lockdown happening at the same time, I gradually moved from the kitchen table to upstairs to work for quiet as the baby started making his presence known :lol: - the rest was what i posted above! :D

:lol: No sleeping on it yet with our little 5 month old boy bouncing around the place!!! A few cheeky games when work is quiet - but should get more time now with our boy about to go on solids and sleep on his own in his own cot, that’s when we get our evenings back!!

it’s a work in progress for sure. Still need to move some shit out (upstairs is generally unused, it leads to a walk-in attic) like old couches and some filing cabinets.
Def good stuff; make sure you keep us posted on the completed project!
Great thread @Fortitude and I share your sentiments. I am wanting to get a PS5 (will have to wait to next year) and a new TV. Have been looking at a new TV cabinet and you are right very hard to decide and get the measurements right. I think I am going for this one

Should fit a PS5 and a 55inch TV on there
Very nice. I have a lot of food for thought from this thread. Lots of nice set ups in here!

I was dead against getting a lighter desk or even white, but having put a few black items into a white room, I don't want to darken the feel of the room (unless intended: night, movies etc.) so having to give that some consideration now, too.

I hope I don't have to go bespoke as that'll be painful on the pockets.

@Snowjoe I expected something entirely different to what you posted! Utter chaos and clutter, but instead got to very nicely constructed rooms! :lol:

Like the personality you've put into the setups, too.

Part plea, part curiosity.

I got rid of both of mine because they were ancient, but finding replacements is proving to be ridiculously difficult. Seems modern TV cabinets have very few open shelves, instead housing the majority of the stuff behind doors and such, which makes little sense to me given the sensors needing to interface with the remotes/controllers. Open doors are also an eyesore, so what's going on there then? Furthermore, the monstrosity that is the PS5 needs a ridiculous amount of space, so how will you be accommodating yours?

I've a super tower case and need a very large workstation in both height and width (monitors), which is again proving difficult to find. I can't be the only one with a super tower, so how you guys housing yours, or have you got it freestanding?

Show us your kit, or recommendations! Cheers!
Perfect time for a bump. So how are you housing your PS5's?

It's a tight enough squeeze to get the PS5 in but there's open space at the back so ventilation should be just about okay.

If you think its just about okay then do not risk it. Can you imagine if one day you turn it on and the thing shuts down on itself?

I really need new speakers and a couple cable tidy. Work on the left two. Nonsense on the right. Switch the left monitor to join home pc at end of the day.

My secondary table and light strips arrived today. My work/play area is now complete, until I get a new 27-32" monitor to replace the temporary 32" HD tv. It's cosy :D
