Happy to help!


So specs aren't as important as form and function in this case, but I figured I'd get them out of the way first just in case you are curious:

  • CPU: Intel i5-7500
  • SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB
  • GPU: EVGA GTX 970
  • CASE: CoolerMaster Elite 130

    Really the only elements that matter here as far as building a couch setup are motherboard and case, as they pertain to the form factor. I chose Mini-ITX to keep the size down, which helps the PC fit nicely under my TV alongside my consoles. The Elite 130 is big for an ITX case, but still got the job done for what I need. Specifically, I chose it for its ATX PSU and full size GPU support, in addition to its affordable price. For reference, ATX PSUs are generally the standard size power supplies for a PC. Smaller PSUs tend to command a significant premium compared to ATX PSUs of the same quality. Speaking premiums, you can end up paying a hefty premium for smaller and better designed ITX cases. just look at /r/sffpc if you want an example of how beautiful (and expensive) these things can get. There's some really awesome stuff in there, but honestly what you need will depend on your use case. If you're going to be doing any gaming, then a case that supports a GPU is a must, and you'll pay for cramming more power into a smaller space. However, since your current couch build is a Vista laptop, this may not be an issue for you at all!

    In any case, deciding where you're going to put the PC is important. If size is a concern, there are still great options out there if you don't need too much performance. There are other Mini ITX builds that could accomplish this quite nicely, but if you don't need any PCIe slots at all, ASRock makes a beautiful Mini-STX machine called the DeskMini that is only 6"x6"x3"! I'm not 100% sure that the remote start I first mentioned would fit into this case, but I have a non-ASRock MiniSTX machine at home, so I can take a look and speculate if you'd like. And even if not, you could get that same function through Wake-On-LAN if you have an ethernet connection. Anyway, you can get a barebones model for $170 that supports the latest 8th and 9th gen Intel CPUs, but you'll need to add the CPU and SSD on your own. There are fully built models available, including AMD Ryzen models starting at $500, but again, depending on your needs, that may be more money than you need to spend. For instance, adding an Intel i3-8100 CPU for $135 and a Crucial SATA M.2 SSD for $63 brings you up to $368, and leaves plenty of upgradability down the line. Additionally, you could scale that price down further by lowering the SSD capacity, getting a Pentium CPU, buying used, etc. Let me know what you currently (and want to) do with your couch computer, and I'll be happy to help with a performance recommendation!

    Moving on to peripherals, a wireless mouse/keyboard combo would certainly work well! There are plenty of bluetooth and USB dongle-based options on the market for you to consider. I personally use a Roccat Sova lapboard, which is wired, but I decided that was more important for me as it comes with USB ports for my headset and mouse. Plenty of options are available that are both cheaper and better suited for a wireless mouse and keyboard anyway, so don't feel like you need to go this route! Another product to consider is couch table. I used this model for my mouse before I learned about that Roccat lapboard, but I still love that table for couch use in general!

    As for the display, I use my TV. It's a 4K TCL 55p607, which got great reviews for its price when I bought it. Full disclosure, TVs generally aren't as good as PC monitors when it comes to use with a PC. Refresh rates and input lag tend to be the biggest differentiating factors, but this video will do a far better job of explaining it than I can. Overall though, TVs as displays only get more viable every year! Just don't expect the budget set from Walmart to be as easy on the eyes as a high quality model. If you're going to be staring at it for hours at a time, it will likely be worth the investment to research and buy a better model! One other thing you will likely have to play with regardless of TV quality is visual scaling. Since default settings assume you are sitting a foot or two from the monitor, text and graphics will be very small at first. Customization options are getting better though; Windows has settings for text scaling now, and even has an automated tool to fix programs that aren't cooperating in this regard, but you will still likely have to tinker with settings in some programs to get things comfortably readable from the couch.

    Something else to consider is audio, HDMI inputs, and overall technology compatibility. I have a surround sound setup via a Yamaha receiver. All my consoles (and my PC) plug into it, and it feeds HDMI to the TV. However, I ran into a snag on this front. My receiver is a few years old, and thus cannot support 4K at a refresh rate above 30Hz. Here's another TechQuickie video on refresh rates, and yet another about TVs faking better refresh rates (which should absolutely be disabled if you got this route). So since the receiver sits between the TV and the PC, that means that me getting both surround sound and 4K for my PC got very complicated. In the end, I decided to forego the 4K resolution and instead opt for the simplicity of sticking with 1080p at 60 Hz for my gaming PC. It ended up making sense to me since my hardware specs were better suited for 1080p gaming anyway, but again, higher resolution tends to be easier on the eyes when it comes to everyday PC use, so your mileage may vary.


    Sorry this got long winded, but I hope this answers a lot of your questions. Feel free to reach out with any additional questions, I'd be happy to help in any way I can!

A lot of us made mistakes starting out, but what's important is we learn from our mistakes, take the advice given, and improve the quality of life for our little buddies. I also understand having too small a space for a really big tank, but a 5g or even a 5.5g is really NOT that big... as reference, I originally had 3.5g tanks (the TopFin Enchant) for my bois with lots of water quality maintenance, but recently switched over to 5.5g tanks (TopFin Essentials kit) which fit in the EXACT same places the old 3.5g tanks fit (after doing a bit of cleaning and moving of stuff that didn't actually need to be there on the tabletop or simply sliding them over a bit). The tanks are just a bit more longer, around 16 inches long, but if you think about it, that's really not that bad and will fit fine on most nightstands or side-tables / end-tables or whatnot. I actually wish I had made the switch sooner. I see a NOTICEABLE difference in how much more active my bettas are now with the slightly larger tanks, even though they were quite active in the 3.5g tanks.

Do keep in mind that a filled 5g tank will weigh around 40 lb, and a 5.5g will weigh around 45 lb, so whatever you choose to keep them on should be able to support that amount of weight without collapsing (don't let that discourage you from getting the proper size tank though, just make sure to find sturdy furniture to keep them on :) and all will be well).

Here's some possible sturdy yet small shelfs/tables which will fit a 5.5g tank:

https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-3-Shelf-Shelving-Unit-Black/dp/B01LWP8AL2/ (it says each shelf can support up to 250 lb). The only thing I would add (although optional, but would provide better support for the tank) is a sturdy but thin plank of wood to the top shelf surface for the tank to sit on top.

https://www.amazon.com/RooLee-Tables-Living-Vintage-Storage/dp/B07LC9F89R (another option that looks very sturdy, and would be amazing as a 5.5g aquarium stand, but costs more)

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TLLSN5R/ (somewhat costly but looks great and sturdy)

I've just moved into a 1/1 in South Florida that has a 12.5' x 18' combined living/dining area as in most apartments. I moved with relatively little furniture and am starting fresh. I already have some plans here but want some feedback on my selections and ideas.


To start with —

The couch is a Ryler from Ashley Furniture in steel: https://www.ashleyfurniture.com/p/ryler-sofa/4020138.html

The TV/media unit is a BYÅS from IKEA. It is a glossy white but I am not necessarily trying to let that dictate the rest of the furniture in the room: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/byas-tv-unit-high-gloss-white-80227797/

I also own an Avenal shaded arc lamp from Target (in nickel finish) but haven't assembled it yet: https://www.target.com/p/avenal-shaded-arc-floor-lamp-project-62-153/-/A-52937505?preselect=51021780#lnk=sametab

The walls are white and the floors are a light grey/brown faux wood. The colors of the walls and floors both change a bit depending on the light — sometimes the walls look grey or off-white, but they are white. The floors look more brown than grey in the photo but in direct light they are pretty light. There is one ceiling LED fixture just out of the frame here, but the ceiling fan light kind of sucks and doesn't light the room very well, hence the big lamp.


Here are my plans —

Obviously will be moving my dog's bowls and food

u/thestrandedmoose · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

I actually really like the furniture they used in the software rendering. If I were you, I would get as close to that as possible, with the exception of the couch (and dining table). I wouldn't recommend a white couch because of spills and whatnot.

really digging the plants you picked out, especially the bonsai. Those screenprints you have also look pretty sweet. Are they 24x36?

As for the coffee table: Check out this one from Amazon
It matches the other stuff you picked out and you'll have plenty of room for blurays, dvds, etc. The one you currently picked looks a little large. You're also going to probably want an area rug for underneath the coffee table. Whatever couch color you go with, you should have your armchair match. The one you picked looks pretty cool but the wooden arms might be a tad uncomfortable

As for the dining table, I REALLY recommend going with a rectangular table like they did. You will maximize your efficiency of the space- and trust me you'll want that space when you're eating/studying/whatever you might be doing there. This is just my opinion though, and the table you chose could look decent.
I also like your selection for the patio furniture. Very intimate, and the lanterns will be a nice touch. Cool stuff man

u/leanstotheleftabit · 2 pointsr/HomeDecorating

I'm really glad you linked the links and ideas. That art is a good example of how three pieces, presented well (framed, matted, good alignment/spacing) can really add to a room. And those storage cubes you can get at Walmart or Target (or your local equivalent) for cheap too.

> Also, you mentioned a coffee table but you linked something that Amazon says is a bench, I guess you just repurposed it instead?

Eh, bench style. Officially it is called the Nelson Platform Bench. It has been around for 70 years, but you wouldn't know it because it's just the kind of design that never goes out of style. Like Wayfarer sunglasses. That one link I posted is basically the same design, just with different legs.

While I'm on it, those Eiffel side chairs I linked to are almost as old, designed by Ray and Charles Eames, who are pretty famous in the mid-century modern style. Some models cost a pretty penny, but you can do a lot cheaper. You said you already had eating chairs, so maybe not these right away.

It sounds like a storage ottoman that can pull up to the couch may be more what you're after. Something like this or this?

This and this or this are other coffee table ideas with more storage. Apologies if Amazon does not ship to your area.

u/michelleciao · 1 pointr/minimalism

I live in a 230sqft studio and I have my bed on a FOLDABLE metal platform (https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Foldable-Platform-Under-Bed-Storage/dp/B073WRF565) , I also have it on risers so that I can put my storage bins underneath (ie extra blankets, winter gear, camping gear, etc) As for a mattress, I have a Nectar mattress. I also used to sleep on the floor lol I didn’t have any issues with it but it took up a lot of space that I didn’t have at my studio.

I have a couch that is also a futon for guests and it also came in a box so if I need to move again, I I could easily break it down to fit it in my hatchback. (https://www.amazon.com/Novogratz-Brittany-Sofa-Futon-Linen/dp/B01LY1WBQN) it looks expensive, a little on the firm side but still comfortable with the right pillows. I got it on prime day for $200 😅

I don’t have a closet but I have an ikea wardrobe. It’s small and has allowed me to downsize on my clothing.

I also have this coffee table that looks pretty good and the legs can fold down and I can put it away if I need more space. (https://www.amazon.com/AZUMAYA-Folding-Coffee-Center-TAC-229/dp/B0077HY08M)

u/IamA_DrunkJedi · 1 pointr/AmateurRoomPorn

Hey it's all about what makes you happy!

You can use this site to play around with the arrangements of the living room. Just plug in the dimensions and go nuts!

Personally, I like having all seats facing each other - so when people are all over, you create a social zone for everyone to enjoy together. A nice coffee table placed center on that carpet would allow you to put your feet up, and add a bit of storage and a place to put your beers :-) Definitely throw that sitting chair next to where you have the TV, for starters. Play around with the placement!

Head over to Home Depot or some such place with a picture of your cabinet handy. I'm thinking brass fixtures would liven them up a bit, and Home Depot has a pretty wide array of choices. Also, look into accent lighting. I've found that dark kitchens lit only by fluorescent lights get a bit depressing. You don't have to go crazy - maybe just replacing the fixture will help add character.

Home sweet home needs a gorgeous accented Coffee Table

A Room divider although I'm not sure how well this fits your theme I think it's pretty.

A Jewelry Box and Another one

Some wall Mirrors Mirror2

We have One Two and Three Cabinet knobs.

I think these Suitcases would be good for storage and decor. Here's Another with a different Finish.

Floral Curtains

Quilt Rack?

One Two Three Four Pillow designs.

I think that's all for now xD Hope I stuck with the theme okay.

EDIT: I thought a Cuckoo Clock would be cool but that might stray a bit from the English part of the decor xD

u/BomNomNom · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Home sweet home is the place to be <3

Congrats on the new place !!

May I suggest this beautiful coffee table as a lovely center piece or a side table? You could follow this up by adding these mystifying lamps

I also think this Iron Wall Medallion would be an amazing eye-catcher when guests come into your new home!

u/theoriginalmack · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

I used two of these tables from amazon. It's based off the Ikea lack cabinets. We didn't have an Ikea around so I went that. They work, but you will have to mount your psu enclosure below. As for the other stuff..

The monoprice comes with a scraper and a small drill bit (altough I've had better luck with .09 guitar string) And as for the sd card thing, you can go that route if you want, but I will say the octoprint set up was the best upgrade I ever made to my monprice.

u/IAmNotTheOneYouSeek · -1 pointsr/macsetups


if you're on a budget. I purchased this for my dorm room. its really nice and surprisingly great quality for price. the reviews are also great.

u/LifeAsWeKnewIt · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

Hey! Thanks for you input, I’ll definitely be looking for something dramatic! Maybe some abstract art. The nightstands are from amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01C1A5BMS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_IGoACbVX1MZ37 they are amazing quality and not a bad price!

u/ihavetouchedthesky · 2 pointsr/AskEngineers

Good idea. The angular rotation desk design is an oddball I think, probably not many in commercial circulation but I'll look. Most are scissor lift or straight up/down somehow. Edit: Guess this really wouldn't matter on the design. Whatever commercial electric desks are using to lift should be rated for about the same. I'll have a look.

There are some non-motorized versions of a coffee table that have good design using springs and gas lifts Albeit these work due to a weighted base. Mine is very light.
Thank you

u/llamagish · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

Newly acquired college pad.. really struggling to commit to a rug just because the floor is so busy. I really like those vintage looking rugs with patterns but I think it would be way to busy with these floors. Also trying to stray away from getting a solid white/light grey since I don't have any color in the room.

Also I just purchased this round coffee table, hoping it'll suit the room?

I know the TV is too high, please don't roast me.

u/RumpleAndBelle · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My life would greatly improve with This bathroom set because ours is falling apart and looks like crap, or This table because our current one is a safety hazard to our three children or a weight set to get into shape.

Somethings I think you should add to your list are: one, two, three, because I noticed you like camping as well. We try to camp as often as possible it is just so relaxing getting to get away from everything for a weekend.

u/crackiswax · 3 pointsr/malelivingspace


Pretty cheap price and the quality was surprisingly excellent. It’s solid wood, not particle board.

u/GeneralConcept · 1 pointr/buildapc

Damn, so much unwarranted rudeness in the comments for just asking for help.

I would start looking around on Amazon, they have a pretty good desk selection. I don't know specifically what type of desk you are looking for but, something like this fits your dimensions.

You could also look into "training tables." that's what I use because I prefer large unobstructed desk space. I don't know what your budget is but something like this or this might work for you.

u/TheRarestPear · 20 pointsr/malelivingspace

I suggest something small like this nesting coffee table here! And here’s a nice picture from the reviews for example :)

u/thesoko · 5 pointsr/malelivingspace

u/marceriksen · 3 pointsr/pcgaming

No problem. I have my battlestation setup in the living room and love it! Also if you're looking for a semi desk solution check this table out. Best piece of furniture ever.

u/Angrypolska · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Nice setup.

If you're looking for a stand for your PC, this is the one I bought recently and works wonders. It would match your current desk perfectly. It's shorter than it looks in the picture....


u/m11235813 · 51 pointsr/malelivingspace

The coffee table is probably from Amazon. I have the same one and love it.

Edit: as others have mentioned, here is the link.

u/viir · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

I got them from Amazon. Not what I was expecting honestly and I'm looking to replace them as the price definitely reflects the quality.

u/DirtyChito · 3 pointsr/interiordecorating

If you know the color you can try to search for other tables in the same finish. You might even be able to contact IKEA and seeing if you can get the matching table. It looks like a craftsman oak or driftwood finish. This table looks similar.


I have that one in a espresso finish and love it. Plus, being a lift-top is great for games or eating. My point is don't settle on something you don't enjoy looking at and using. But, at the same time, don't beat yourself up if it's not an EXACT match. Mine is ever so slightly different but you don't notice unless you're trying to inspect it.

u/canofpotatoes · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

Paracord sleeving is rather easy, a 15 foot cable might take you 20 minutes.

Another way to keep the cables off the ground would be a guide. Like a hook angled upward from the chair base to act as an arm carrying the cable. Or instead of going through all of this you could build from the desk instead of the chair, or put a c shape table on each end of your chair.

u/Ichunckpineapple · 1 pointr/Prowriter

My dog insists on being on my lap (he's 55 pounds!). Because of this, I rarely work at my desk. I use one of these (Reclaimed Wood Look Finish Chrome Snack Side End Table https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JOAUT3K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_FnqvCbR5WWNNH) for working from my couch.

I also would recommend headphones and getting our of the house if you have trouble being self disciplined. I work 6-8hrs per day without turning on the tv or doing chores.

I use a planner to keep track of deadlines, hours worked per job, and pay.

Having a good mouse helps.

u/MadroxKran · 2 pointsr/FortWorth


There's also a coffee table there in the other items by the picture. Great price, real sturdy.

u/WetGash · 1 pointr/DesignMyRoom

Rest of the place is two bedrooms and a separate bathroom. I've found a convertible coffee table / dining table that might fit the space

coffee table

other coffee table

a side table idea

entertainment center

couch idea

I think with the couch, if you click around on there, it has a matching chair. Those are all just sort of my ideas of types of furniture I’d put in the space. They obviously might not all match exactly. But basically, I’d steer clear of glass coffee tables (I’ve never been a huge fan, it can be terrible if they break somehow)

Are you into the white malm style furniture from Ikea?

u/DinnerMilk · 7 pointsr/3Dprinting
  • That alcohol is extremely overpriced. Just get that locally from a drug store or Target, it is like $2 a bottle.

  • The thinnest guitar string (High E) will work perfect for cleaning nozzles. I dunno how that kit is but you can just get a pack of guitar strings for less than $5 and those strings can be cut into dozens of pieces for repeat cleaning.

  • Get the stuff to do the MOSFET upgrade. As a Maker Select owner, you should do that before you do anything else.

  • I would say drop the hair spray and get a sheet of PEI. It will last you a long time, has amazing adhesion and only needs to be put on once.

  • That table is going to be really bad for a 3D Printer. I would drop that and get the $9 Ikea Lack Table, that is what a huge majority of us use. If you don't want to wait for Ikea's slow shipping, the Parsons table on Amazon is still cheaper and is basically the same thing.
