14 Amazing Gaming Desk Layouts
“I want to make the best gaming environment possible. I bought a gaming PC, a mouse, a keyboard, a headset, and even a gaming chair. But something’s weird...Oh, I know. I’m still using my desk from when I was a kid!”
There are many gamers faced by this sad reality. That is because there are almost no gaming desks specially created for gamers being made, and those that do exist are super expensive. Also, many gamers are not sure what sort of desk is best for them.
In this article, we will introduce 14 gaming desk layout patterns that use gaming furniture Bauhutte has developed . We hope you can use it as a reference to build the perfect desk environment for yourself.
The Fundamental Gaming Desk
1. Gaming Desk (Standard)
A highly balanced layout that uses the Gaming Chair, Adjustable Gaming Desk, and Adjustable L Desk. We recommend using these three items as a base for beginners and adding on optional items as necessary. In the image, a Desk Rack has been added for more storage space and the Gaming Desk Mat is being used to protect the flooring from scratches. The 120 cm wide desk is being used for plenty of workspace, but we also recommend the 100 cm wide desk if you value compact furniture with high cost performance.

2. Gaming Desk (Low Style)
A low Japanese gaming desk with a gaming floor chair at the center. It doesn’t have an overwhelming presence, so we recommend it to gamers who have small rooms. The main piece of the layout is the Adjustable Low Desk. By adjusting its height, you can sit in the floor chair and have enough space to stretch your legs out. Generally, this is a lower style of 1. Gaming Desk (Standard), but it would be boring to make them exactly the same, so we arranged things to place Adjustable L Desks on each side. Not only do they give you more workspace, but you can also enjoy the cool, fort-like shape. Also, in order to increase the desk’s depth, we added an Adjustable TV Stand to be used as a monitor stand. You can use it to store game consoles and wires.

Concept Desk Version
From here on out, we will introduce unique concept desks with individual themes. When designing your own original desk set, imagine your ideal desk environment and determine a clear “concept,” then add on the optional parts you need to make that concept a reality. Be deliberate while imagining your goal.
3. Reclining Game System
We offer this dream desk to all gamers. Everyone has wished to be able to game while lying down. The key points of this desk are its characteristic long monitor arms and the gaming chair’s reclining function. The ability to adjust the desk’s height allows you to find the perfect position to lie down in. By adding an Adjustable L desk and a keyboard slider, you can comfortably control the game even while lying down. We recommend this layout to RPG solo gamers who enjoy playing at their own pace.

4. Gamer’s Big Hill
As its name suggests, this is a grandiose layout with a bunch of differently sized table tops that seem to form a hill. Starting with the PC desk, the first five items on this list are adjustable. You can adjust them to match the heights of your monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers. By adding the extension desk to the desk’s original depth of 25 cm, you can create the largest amount of workspace the series offers. This layout is popular not just with gamers, but with illustrators who use large LCD tablets.

5. Dual Gaming Desk
This is a functional, L-shaped layout that consists of a sub desk placed to the side of the main desk. Normal corner desks often have dead space in the corner section, but this layout uses a PC display wagon to dually control two PCs in an arrangement similar to that of a server room. The adjustable PC rack used as the sub desk has a desktop rack and a slider, making full use of the space. We recommend a light and easily moveable mesh chair (RS-200) for switching between the main and sub desks.

6. Gaming Castle
Compared to “Big Hill,” which has the most workspace, this “castle” boasts of the most storage space possible. The desk is framed by shelves that allow you to connect any type of device or electronic to your computer within a diameter of 1 meter. The key points are the drawers and desk wagon which have been added underneath the desk, a place which usually becomes dead space. We call this the “king of desks” as it covers the needs of everyone, from professional gamers who require a number of devices to businesspeople who are surrounded by a large number of documents.

7. Racer’s Cockpit
Recommended for serious racing gamers. The low style has been arranged to create a layout like a race car. Long monitor arms with 3 24-inch screens give you a wide display (with a great sense of immersion). The desk’s height is adjustable and if you pair it with a reclining floor chair while placing your handle controller in the best position, you can up your game performance. Research without making compromises. In order to create storage space, we added a desk side rack, as well as a gaming chair mat to make you feel like you’re really behind the wheel.
*Please check to make sure your PC is compatible with the triple display option.

8. Gaming Camp
We recommend this to serious gamers who want to be submerged in their games. The desk is covered by a tent to create a layout that shuts you off from the outside world. You’ll be cut off from distracting lines of sight and be able to focus on the display. The key item here is the desk tent, which was sized to fit the Bauhütte desk series. All you have to do is place it over your desk like a hat to create a closed-off environment. Because the space inside the tent is limited, it works best with the smaller, mobile Gaming Chair: Student Model. As you might suspect…it can also be used for studying.

A modern version of the old-fashioned TV game room popular in the 90s. The “sitting on the floor” style popular with the Japanese has been kept as-is, and the black, hard appearance has been matched to the living room. The gaming tower rack, which can hold up to four consoles, reduces the look of clutter, and the adjustable TV stand and gaming floor chair create a gaming environment that’s gentle on your eyes and back. This is the birth of a gaming room you dreamed of in your youth.

A showcase desk that any collector would drool over, specially designed for people who love their devices and find more worth in their existence than just the ability to input data. The key items are the extension tower rack, a storage shelf which can be used as a monitor rack, and the device walls placed on either side of the desk. This layout makes full use of vertical space, which tends to become dead space, and allows you to display your collection around your desk in the best condition possible. Be surrounded by your favorite devices and adore them as much as you like. This is a layout for maniacs who want to emphasize the visual of their gaming desk to the max.

11. Gaming Theater
You came here looking for a gaming desk, but why not remodel your entire room into a gaming area? The roomy bed rug, which uses super thick urethane foam, combined with a projector creates a miraculous layout. You can immerse yourself in a game’s world with a 100-inch large screen while laying around.

12. Gaming Bed
When you wake up, you go from your bed to your desk. But why is that simple action such a pain to do? Bauhutte has come up with a solution to that problem with the Gaming Bed. The adjustable headboard adds storage space near your pillow and the bed desk can be attached to the foot of a single-sized bed. Gaming, watching anime, sleeping… You can do everything important to gamers in one place. [Additional Result: Space Merits] By combining two large pieces of furniture, you will have more space in your room.

The ultimate gaming bed that has everything you need in your gaming life. We started with the standard version as a base and added the gaming sofa and long side table for comfort. Also, the energy wagon and slim bottle rack can hold a large amount of snacks and drinks as a good measure to strengthen your eating environment. It deserves to be called the ultimate layout.

13. Standing Games
The first desk series made with gamers’ health in mind. It includes a standing desk layout that suggests you stand while gaming. This workstyle is lauded in the business community for boosting efficiency, making it truly compatible with the gaming community. We especially suggest trying 30 minutes a day of standing while gaming to gamers who suffer from back aches and stiff shoulders.

14. Cycling Gaming
The second desk series made with gamers’ health in mind. You may think it’s a joke, but cycling while gaming is actually quite reasonable. The words “gaming” and “lack of exercise” go hand in hand, but that problem can be solved but pedaling while playing. If you think about it, whether in FPS or RPGs, players are always “moving around.” If you put yourself in the same situation as your character, you will be a true gamer.

Turning Your Desk into a Secret Base
When I was little, I envied the secret bases that appeared in superhero shows. Spaces filled with multiple screens, levers, and switches made my heart race.
My research project one summer was to build the “greatest secret base possible.” I spent all my time renovating my desk with cardboard. My mom and female teacher didn’t empathize with me at all, but it was a young man’s dream. Before my exams in my last year of high school, I pushed my desk into a closet to make it a separate room. In college, when I was playing a lot of online games, I surrounded my kotatsu with bookcases on four sides to create a cockpit that was the epicenter of my life.
Before I knew it, my secret base had become part of my life’s work. I even wanted to show how amazing it was to others.
That was how the Bauhutte gaming desk series was created. Now I’m doing my best to develop plans for items that create the best desk environments and spreading the word to gamers, who value uniqueness above all else and seem highly compatible with secret bases.
Bauhutte has three founding principles.
1 Sizing specialized for Japanese people.
Our chairs are made to have low seats and the surfaces of our desks are adjustable. This makes it easy to adjust positions with simple movements so that small-framed Japanese people can work in comfort.
2 The feeling of being surrounded on all sides.
Have you ever felt strangely safe or happy in small, closed off spaces such as toilet cubicles? In order to recreate that feeling, we put a lot of effort into our options that allow you to cut yourself off from the outside world. For example, you can place small, L-shaped desks on either side of you or put desk racks on your desk. Although they also function as storage, they create the walls of your secret base.
3 Realistic pricing.
All of the layouts we introduced on this page can be created for about $1000. Rather than spending $1000 all at once, you can buy new options each month to add on little by little. Cheap furniture will not give you the satisfying environment you desire. However, if the prices are too ridiculous, you’ll never be able to build anything. Through trial and error, we’ve found that the perfect balance of quality and price is this “purchase options → full set = $1000” system. It is made so that students can work part-time and spend half a year building their perfect desk environment. Please enjoy the process of exploring the best gaming desk for yourself.
[Bonus] Basic Knowledge for Choosing a Desk that All Gamers Should Know
There is an infinite number of desks in this world. There are various criteria such as price, function, size, and design, but there are a few things you must keep in mind while creating a comfortable gaming desk. We’d like to introduce them as a way to round out this article.
1.Get a desk with a little extra space.
If you want to place a 24-inch (or larger) PC monitor on your gaming desk, you need a desk that’s longer than 100 cm and wider than 55 cm. Longer desks allow for dual monitors, while wide desks provide plenty of space for your mouse and keyboard.
2. Choose a shake-resistant desk.
We’re not just talking about earthquakes. Super cheap desks tend to have wobbly surfaces and lack sturdiness. Desks are the carriers of your expensive gaming devices, so they should be safe and sturdy.
3. Take care with keyboard sliders.
Keyboard sliders may seem convenient, but they don’t offer much workspace and wobble every time you type. We have to admit that they aren’t very compatible with large gaming keyboards or the stress placed on them by fervent mouse clicks. If you must choose a desk with a keyboard slider, check the reviews on the maker’s product page and other online sites first.
