For some, it isn’t enough to simply have a good setup. These days our consoles, computers, and monitors all need to look the part too. A bit of flair goes a long way in making a setup feel just that little bit more personal, like it is yours and no one else’s.
Wall mounting can go a long way to building the perfect, personalized setup. Whether it’s consoles, monitors, or even a nicely built computer, seeing your gear floating on the wall adds a special touch.
Is there a benefit to some of these customizations? Yep. Below, we unpack the top reasons why wall mounting may do more than just improve your aesthetic.
Regardless of your playing platform, it’s important to make the most of the space you have. Mounting your console and controllers to the wall is the fastest route to ensuring more space in your gaming area.
Some mounts, like the console mounts from HumanCentric, also allow for mounting to a back of your PC Monitor, instantly giving your PC desk a little more space for that pesky keyboard and mouse (or the oversized mouse pad you just had to buy to complete your kit).
Want to take it up a level? You can use adjustable wall mounts for almost any device such as cable boxes, networking modems— you get the point. Declutter all of your electronics.
Increased air flow
There are many benefits to improving the airflow in and around our gaming setups. Increased airflow leads to cooler systems which means they can maintain high performance and survive a little longer under the stress we put them through.
This is particularly important in warm environments. Traditionally computer desks and cabinets were not built with technology performance in mind, shifting your setup out into the fresh air can breathe new life into your tech and ensure they stay cool.
It isn’t just consoles and PCs that can be wall mounted. Monitor arms and adapters can lift your screen up to more ergonomic heights than the stands they come with. Looking at screens or monitors that are poorly positioned for too long can do long-term damage. Monitor mounts and arms use a VESA pattern to safely lock the monitor into place.
If you are having trouble finding the right
If you are starting to develop shoulder and neck pain, we recommend speaking to a doctor and finding out what you can do to make sure your tech is set up correctly to allow you to perform at your maximum potential.
Boosting your audio
Every good setup needs a good set of speakers. There’s no point having everything shining bright or running as cool as possible if you can’t hear the footsteps of your enemies and the dialogue of your favorite quests.
Speaker mounts can help you manage that mess of cables you have acquired with your 7.1 surround sound set up. One of the biggest life savers in gaming is being able to tell what direction that noise came from. Use speaker mounts to spread your speakers out correctly and never turn the wrong way again.
Even if you use a headset for a bulk of your gaming, lifting up your Sonos system around the house will definitely make it look a lot more impressive.
These are just some of the ways mounting your setup can change the way you play your favorite games. The options are endless and the team at HumanCentric has done everything they can to make mounting your equipment as simple as possible.
