How do you make a minimal desk setup?

Achieving a minimal desk setup requires careful planning and a disciplined approach. You should aim to preserve only the most essential items on your desk. Here's how to go about it:

  • Be selective. Only functional items should be part of your desk setup. Restrict yourself to things you use daily, like your computer, pen, notepad, and perhaps a desk lamp.
  • Wire Management: Unsightly cables can detract from the minimalist aesthetic. Make use of cable organizers to keep them hidden. Check out the best-in-class cable management options from Desky.
  • Clean Regularly: Regular cleaning prevents clutter from building up. Make it a habit to tidy up your desk after your day's work.
