I just recently purchased the FREDDE Computer Work Station from IKEA.
If you don’t have an IKEA by you it’s an enormous warehouse type store that sells all sorts of home furniture. IKEA is pretty cool if you just bought a house and need ideas for your new home and the prices are also reasonable. I happen to have a couple IKEA’s right by my house so I go there whenever I need some type of desk or table.
I just went there this past weekend and bought a brand new computer desk, work station type set up. The room I use for my office is rather small so I am always limited to what I purchase. That being said, I’m always looking to maximize the little bit of space that I do have.

After looking at everything IKEA had to offer, I finally felt like “this is the one”. My current computer set up is a custom tower computer, 2- 32 inch computer monitors, 2 KRK Rokit 6 Powered monitors, and a bunch of other bells and whistle that don’t seem to want to fit on a traditional desk.
I like having some desk space to write some things down from time to time and because this desk is elevated in multiple locations, I am able to hold all my goodies and still have adequate desk space to get some work done. It did take me around 2 hours to build this thing, however I was by myself and I have a very small room so I was moving things around the whole process. I definitely recommend a drill that allows you to change the bit to the special type of screw they use. It made my job much easier when I was putting together the bottom parts that hold the computer tower.
I would definitely recommend this desk if you have a limited space and need to optimize the space you do have to work with without feeling cramped. I have only had this desk for a few days now but I am very happy with this purchase. Now, time to get some work done!
