So, another renovation, and I'm running out of ideas on desk space.  I've switched to a flat desk for more monitor space, but I need some ideas on how to get more desk space...

I've even turned my touchscreen to portrait mode...

As you can see from the pics, I haven't plugged the two new monitors in yet...

Build yourself a bigger desk! I built my own custom L shaped desk...and it's cheap to do.

easy solution, buy a bigger desk, and have one monitor on it.

why do you need so many monitors anyway?

Better yet, try to figure out why you even need that much equipment in the first place. If you just have it all because it's "nice to have", you might want to reconsider your priorities in life.  Try saying to yourself "Do I really need this?" when you look at something, and if you answer truthfully, your desktop will begin to look much better.

Short shelf behind the desk with the two new monitors on it side by side?  Or some pair of monitors anyway.  Looks like a window right behind it there, so additional wall mounts are out of the question.

Get rid of the second phone you have on the desk, I see another one under your mouse on the wall not ten feet away.

Get a small square table or stool to put your printer on.

Behind the monitor with the girl on it is a plant, i think.  Remove that and move said monitor back and left slightly.

Could probably do more with better pictures(Too dark/need more angles.)

I do alot of multitasking and I'm really good at it.  I work better with tons of monitors.

The touchscreen makes it easier, as I can open programs onto anyone of the monitors with one touch.

The imac is kinda worthless, but I also got it to learn a alittle about osx, and possibly to write mac games (It's the one unnessecary item, but I won't remove it, sorry).

The wall mounted item is a file server.  Not going to remove.

How often do you use the printer. That can go anywhere.

Suggestion #1. Send one of the monitors to me not DisturbedComputer because he is eh disturbed! he is also young and will have plenty of time to get a monitor like yours. I'm old and that's my excuse.

Suggestion #2. Knock out a wall and make the room bigger. Then attach shelves to the walls all around the expanded room. You could zoom back and fort from station to station. Have all those monitors mounted on the wall.

Suggestion #3. Send me those cool lamps. I like them too.

That would be a bit hard to do considering I'm facing a large window

well a while back i had similar problems, so i got a bigger desk, and that led to a bigger mess on it, the mess on the desk grows proportionately with the stuff on it, i even went the route of a sheet of 4x8 plywood and sawhorses (disaster), now i have my monitors mouted on a swing arm thing on the wall, to free up some real estate. it is hard to re organize "your stuff" cause you need everything thats there

Turn around.

If you want further help re spatial organization [Architecture]....Professional fees apply.

Personally...I'd learn to do more with less.
