I'm looking to get a new table soon for my home office setup, but I not sure what size to get and whether the size I have in mind is appropriate

The table must be able to hold 2x 17 inch laptops, and at least a 21inch monitor (2 if possible) with some space to spare without feeling crowded. Is 180 x 80 enough?

Side by side preferably without the use of monitor arms but if no choice then I'll consider monitor arms

It's always good to go Ikea and get some ideas there.

When buying online, make sure not to deceived by the sample photo, they have been alter to make it looks big and good.
I almost fall for it when I bought a table last time, always look at the comments section.
Always look at their actual size at their specification.

Advertised photo vs actual

Wtf that's basically false advertising unless its stated explicitly the real product is not as shown in image

But no worries for me, I'm actually more concerned with the size now rather than the actual design itself

imagine you need to move from the first screen to the last screen within 1800 mm length table blink.gif

dual monitor arm is better to put the big monitor. cz can adjust height, angle and position


normal office table for staff around 1200-1500 length x 600-750 depth (mm)

If both monitor at the middle i dont think should be a problem

But now I not sure if there's enough space to fit my 2 17 inch laptops, that's the priority now. Monitor just 1 will do but if possible would prefer 2

Ideal setup is monitor(s) at the middle, laptop at the sides

1800mm maybe ngam ngam for 4 , side by side. depends on the actual dimension. to be safe add another 100 or 200 mm

or consider L shaped table


for user friendly purpose to look at 4 screens at one time shud be 2 big monitors on top of the laptops, then the table 1200 / 1500 will do, cz big monitor doesnt eat much of your table space. just one pipe only

L shape table nice but need to plan nicely to fit into the space which i dont think is suitable for my current room. So my plan is get a normal big size table for now

Will drop by ikea to check out some tables of size 180cm x 80cm soon
