Monitor Stands That Are Unique and Save Space
The way you set up your desk and workstation can make or break your ability to have a productive, effective workday. A cluttered, chaotic desk can disrupt your focus and make it easy to misplace your stuff, but an organized one can max out your efficiency and help you crush the daily grind.
So, how do you make your desk space the most productive surface possible for your everyday tasks?
Let’s find out.
How To Make it So Much Easier To Focus
Distractions are everywhere. Whether you work from home, in a coffee shop, or in an office, there are stimuli all over the place threatening to derail your work. It could be the noise of the espresso machine, the conversation in the room behind you, or your dog barking. It seems like there’s always something that has the potential to swivel your attention from what needs to get done.
Focusing has always been a challenge, but it seems now to be tougher than ever. Buzzing electronics, noisy office spaces, and too much caffeine are just a few of the modern hindrances to work, but they’re a few among many. That’s why having a clean, organized, and optimized desk is more important than ever.
Surveys show that three out of four workers self-report feeling distracted on the job. It is suspected that many workers are struggling to focus because they don’t have workspaces that encourage them to stay on task and organized.
What Can Help?
So, what can be done to improve your overall focus and avoid distractions? While it’s not a catch-all solution, cleaning up your desk and saving space can make a big difference. And one of the best ways to organize and optimize your space is to use a monitor stand.
A monitor stand elevates your desktop computer monitor over the main surface of your desk, giving you extra space and available compartments for other items like a keyboard or mouse. (If you really want a clutter-free zone, look for touch screen devices.)
There are plenty of different types of stands out there, but we stand by the SkyFloat as the best, most innovative, and easiest to use. Still, there are plenty of options out there, so we’ll cover all of the options so you can make the best choice for your space.
What Your Monitor Stand Should Do For You
Not all monitor stands are created equal. Some might look nice on your desk but not offer anything to you in terms of organization or productivity.
Here are a few criteria you’ll need to pay attention to when you pick yours out:
Height: Not Too Tall, Not Too Short
When you pick out a monitor stand, one of the biggest red flags to keep an eye out for is a non-adjustable mechanism. If you can’t adjust the stand, you may end up stuck with a gadget that is too tall to match your sitting height or so short that you have to hunch over to see. A monitor that can change with some easy adjustments may help reduce eye strain and neck strain.
One of the characteristics that set the SkyFloat stand apart is adjustability. Since our stand is ceiling-mounted, you can set it to any height that you want — whatever fits your sitting or standing preferences.
Your monitor stand should be the icon of adaptability. After all, there are plenty of times when you’ll want to stand instead of sitting or vice versa, and you want your monitor setup to be able to accommodate all of the ways you like to work. A height-adjustable monitor can function well within a sit-stand workstation.
Size: Not Too Clunky or Clumsy
Some monitor stands look good and are even adjustable, but they severely lack an economical design. A stand should contribute to a maximum amount of storage space, not take away from it. If you’re looking at a massive stand, it’s probably a good choice to pass on.
The SkyFloat is mounted from above, so it takes up zero space on your desk. That means you won’t have to worry about a massive monitor stand filling up your workspace completely.
Usability: Is It Convenient?
When looking for a monitor stand, it’s always a good idea to pick one out that has the most convenient user interface possible. That means you can easily detach your digital device for handheld use whenever you want.
This is especially true when it comes to phone and tablet stands like the SkyFloat, which can hold your phone or tablet easily... but doesn’t make it a hassle to detach your device.
If a monitor stand has a clunky design that makes it tough to remove your phone or tablet, it’s definitely not worth buying.
That being said, look for a durable monitor stand that can rotate to different tilts and angles. A good heavy-duty stand will handle different tablets and a range of monitor sizes.
Space-Saving: Does It Help You Declutter?
A cluttered desk can be extremely distracting, and it’s much harder to keep your stuff in order when there’s no room on your desk. A ceiling-mounted stand saves you the most space of any monitor holder. In fact, it frees up 100% more space than any other stand/
A monitor stand is a great way to promote cable management. Instead of needing to have cables run all over your desk, they can hang from the ceiling instead. This will free up desk drawer real estate for other office necessities like pens, pencils, and a printer.
Mounting Dual Monitors
Some of us only need a single monitor, but if you work on two screens at once, a monitor stand can be especially helpful for you. However, two monitors – and a dual monitor stand that holds them on your desk – can take up a lot of space. That’s why we recommend two SkyFloats to anyone with a dual-monitor display.
SkyFloat mounts can be set up right next to each other, allowing you easily suspend your devices in midair for the optimal dual monitor setup.
You can even use one to hold your phone and the other to hold a tablet for easy access to both screens. (You can even go for the elite triple display or more if you'd like).
Is the SkyFloat Easy To Install?
You might be reading about all the perks of getting a SkyFloat tablet holder and wondering, is it going to be easy to get this thing set up at my desk? Fortunately, the answer is yes!
A SkyFloat hangs with the help of two mounting plates. These let you easily switch the location of your mounting stand between two different places in your home.
To install the stand, all you need to do is mount a plate in the ceiling, then stick the extendable mount to the plate for easy use. The plate and mount combination are strong enough to keep your tablet securely in place, so there’s no need to worry about your devices falling/
The Best Monitor Position
We recommend putting your SkyFloat device holder anywhere where you love to multitask. The holder is designed to make your life easier by giving you the ability to view your screens while working on other tasks. That means that the SkyFloat is right at home in the kitchen, your bedroom, your office, or anywhere else you might want to watch or create content on your devices.
In addition to making it easier to enjoy entertainment on your devices, SkyFloat mounts are perfect for at-work use, too. You can bring yours to the office and set it up at your desk and then reap the benefits of a clutter-free workspace!
