In my previous house I downsized the workshop and made a library instead.
Just got the TV and recliner put into the home office in our house.
Wasn't really an electronics lab back then, this is how it began in our house.
Here I am getting started on the computer desk in our house.
Home office computer desk with new red bias lighting using two Hue Bloom lights.
My home office/man cave/electronics lab with new monitor setup, laptop stand and Hue lights.
My new computer setup is complete, new 34" monitor on shelf with Hue bias lighting. Chromebook on laptop stand.
Mounted an additional shelf on the left, so that I got the speakers of the desk and pointing in my direction.
Computer desk with new DX Racer Iron chair and laptop stand.

Computer desk with new monitor on shelf, with Philips Hue Bloom as bias lighting.
Movie lights are on in my man cave. Red color in the room and white bias lighting behind the TV.
The recliner and TV in my man cave. Movie lights on, cigar ashtray next to recliner.
My computer desk, two Philips Hue Bloom lights behind the monitor as bias lighting.
Sign on the man cave door; "Dad's fix it shop".
A couple of signs inside the man cave door: "Door are always to be kept closed" and "Smoking allowed" :)
Computer desk and electronics lab with red lights by Philips Hue.
Computer desk setup complete, with monitor shelf and monitor. Lit by Philips hue.
Shelf mounted, with the new 34" ultra-wide monitor. Looking good!
Giving the new shelf a test with my old monitor.
Putting up rails for a new monitor shelf.
Got myself another small table to increase my work surface, and put the soldering iron on the shelf.
My electronics corner, with lamps from IKEA and tool wall. Ready to go!
This is how the electronics corner ended up in the end, with new shelves and a small table.
It is important to have tools within arms reach, this is my tool wall.
Another photo of my electronics corner/lab, with more equipment this time. Lit by Hue from Philips.
Electronic devices, and of course; Buddha, in the workshop. Lights by Hue from Philips.
A bit of decoration is also important, a painting of guys drinking and smoking, lit by Hue from Philips.
Storage area for parts, lighted by Hue from Philips.
My entire desk, with computer and electronics corner, lighted by Hue from Philips.
The right side of my desk is the electronics corner, lit by Hue from Philips.

Having a good storage system for parts make it so much easier to find what you need.
This is where most of my electronic parts are organized.
So this is my tiny work surface, cables and instruments within reach. And a new soldering iron! :D
Two rows of cable rolls, oscilloscope, power supply and soldering iron.
Got myself a couple of IKEA lamps to get better lighting on the work area.
So this is my tiny electronics corner/lab :)
A couple of shelves for storage above the electronics corner is practical.
Both new shelves are up in my electronics corner, looking good!
Overview of the my electronics corner, with two new shelves in place. Got more storage space, every bit helps :)
Also added a tiny shelf on the wall in front of me, for soldering equipment, multimeter etc.
Shelf painted black to fit the "theme", oscilloscope and power supply in place.

Shelf with oscilloscope and power supply, looking good.
Still plenty of space for my rolls of wire after the new shelf was added.
Power to the instruments is brought up in a cable canal, nice and hidden :)
I needed some space for my scope and power supply, added a new shelf.
Most of the time I run the fan in the home offce on level 3, at full speed it moves about 200 cubic feet of air per minute.
Good books and good whisky is also an important element in the home office/man cave.
Electronics lab, books and Whisky. Oh yeah :)
This fan is what allows me to solder and smoke cigars in the home office, it's quite powerful. The box is a noise trap.
Different colored wires, ready for the next project. Having it easily available is important.
Having some shelf's close keeps the actual work area much cleaner.
Some space to put stuff makes it easier to keep the work surface uncluttered.
Having the most used tools close by is a real time saver.
Here is my electronics area, with wires, tools and my Android watch.
I just love a large desktop, two 24" main screens and a 22".
Internet modem for my fiber connection, and Buddha.
What computer rack would be complete without a network switch?
I just love my Fractal Design Define R5 case, quiet and easy to work with.
My oscilloscope is located right above the programming area.
This is where I program all my microcontrollers, a couple of Raspberry Pi's on the left.
This is my beloved computer and the UPS in my computer rack.
All my computer stuff is in the rack, electronics work area on the right.
My TV, computer rack and monitors in the home office.
A sweet recliner and a PC monitor used as a TV is perfect for relaxing and enjoying a cigar.
It's always handy to have a few spare AVR microcontrollers.
My logistics system (this website) keeps track of the location of all components.
Components for work, TV for play; in the home office.
My component storage, and a picture of the boys.
A whole bunch of different modules I've made over the years.
Storage is important, shelves and component storage.
My home office is also my man cave, aka. cigar lounge. This is the door!
