A three piece Kanye artwork. Assuming that's brick wall, drill and seal.

Or go the magnetic route. I wouldn't risk mounting a shelf on top of my PC/desk, especially not with high end kicks

My current man cave setup, used for everything from work, gaming, reloading, etc.

Still want to do some LED light strips at the top of the wall to bounce off the ceiling and under the counter for some ambient lighting, then the desk lamps can be turned back to their regular positions. The light fitting in the wall must also go and be replaced with a light/ceiling fan from the roof, or possibly down lights.

The floating shelves are actually very sturdy, reckon they could easily carry 5kg each (haven't tested it yet). Going to remove the top 60cm shelf and replace with two 45cm shelves offset to the right from the bottom two (also 45cm).

The best thing I can recommend is get one of these:

Some Phanteks DRGB strips:

Place em behind your monitor. That's the only lighting you'd need while gaming.

This demo is a bit much, you can turn the intensity down but shows an example of it in action:

It works really nicely
I do have an rgb strip on the back of the desk. But at night is just a solid not in your face colour ...

Been seeing this nanoleaf panels. But then realised they super expensive for what it is. I'm leaving towards some sneaker or Gaming artwork frames

your setup looks very clean ... Yeah i do have some spare floating shelves. But am too worried about stuff falling off it and onto the PC

Need some ideas for the wall behind the pc. Seen those light up blocks. Dunno if I should. Not trying to go for all out sci fi hitech gamer room

This looks nice and clean. I wouldn't really add anything else to it. The light strips or Nanoleaf panels are a good idea if you really want some lighting. I'd keep it as it is, maybe add another plant or 2.

Not really my full setup, but the cat is sleeping on my top exhaust fan while I am playing on my PC.

The paper is put there so that she doesn't turn my PC off again 😃
