We’ve seen awesome single-color workspaces, but if that’s just too much trouble, you can still appreciate the simplicity in a space like this one. Reader pljohns built this cubby workspace that reaches up, not out, and still manages to keep everything well lit and organized. Check out some more photos below.
The shot at the top of the article here is in good light. pljohns actually has some softer, more blue lighting for those nights that demand you work into the evening. You can check it out below—the photo notes say that pljohns is using a Philips Hue Bloom to get that blue effect, and you can actually see the light right there in the center of the workspace.
So this is all well and good, but how does he keep the cables and everything at the bottom from looking light a nightmare? Well, check the photo below, taken with the flash on. There’s a small drawer right under the desk surface for all the tech and gear, including the router, USB hub, external hard drives, power strip, Mac Mini, and other assorted cables and connectors.
That’s not all though, this photo shows off the sweet coffee poster hanging in the upper right there, and this one gives us a glimpse of that autographed football and the bookshelf that it lives on. All in all, it’s well organized, and nicely set up, especially for being a DIY space.
If you have a workspace of your own to show off, share them with us by adding it to our Lifehacker Workspace Show and Tell Flickr pool. Make sure any photos you include are at least 1280×720. Keeping them to 16:9 helps, too! Include a little text about the stuff you used, how you came up with the design, and any other relevant details. If your clever organization and good design sense catches our eye, you might be the next featured workspace!
