It's Game On with a Gaming Desk!
Got a serious gamer in your life? If so, you’ll know that gaming equipment can take up plenty of space. And with all those gadgets, it can be a real challenge to keep everything neat and tidy.
If you or your kids love nothing more than a game session, a gaming desk is the obvious choice. However, with so many options to choose from, it can be hard to know where to begin.
To help you out, I’ve answered your most commonly-asked questions – so you can find the perfect gaming desk.
Why buy a gaming desk?
If you’re new to the world of gaming desks, you might be wondering how they could even benefit you in the first place. After all, you already have an office desk – so why buy a gaming desk?
There’s actually heaps of reasons why buying a gaming desk makes sense. With plenty of space-saving and ergonomic benefits, they’re total game changers (pardon the pun!).
You’ll enjoy a gaming desk because…
- They have plenty of space for extra monitors and keyboards
- They can include storage for games, controllers, and equipment
- They can keep messy wires tidy with a cable port
- They offer good ventilation for long gaming sessions
- They can store consoles neatly
Gaming vs regular desks - what’s the difference?
A gaming desk is often much roomier than a normal desk. As avid gamers might have two or three monitors and multiple consoles, a gaming desk offers enough space to store them all.
Gaming desks are often much sturdier, too. As those intense gaming sessions can last for hours (and hours), you’ll need a durable and supportive desk to handle long stints at the computer. Plus, gaming desks often include more storage and compartments to keep games and equipment neat and tidy.

When it comes to choosing a gaming desk, it all comes down to your individual requirements. Every gaming desk is slightly different, so I’ve found the best ones available – so you can decide which is right for you.
