When you think about the ultimate gaming setup, it comes complete with an unbeatable gaming rig, killer peripherals, and aesthetic LED lighting. The complete combo can take time and money but it’s a journey that’s well worth it once you’ve perfected your setup. Today, we’re going to look at some must-have products for creating an aesthetic gaming setup. RGB LED lighting is often a staple in the most aesthetic gaming setups, so we’ve put them at the forefront of our selection. These are some of the best products for an aesthetic gaming setup!

Monitor Light Bar - Yeelight Monitor Light Bar Pro

Late-night gaming sessions are loads of fun until your eyes start feeling the burn from that glaring screen. That's where a Monitor Light Bar comes in, providing soft, ambient backlighting. This helps to reduce the strain on your eyes by minimising the contrast between the brightness of your screen and the surrounding area. They're not just practical; they're also about style. Monitor Light Bars are compact and unobtrusive, freeing up more room on your desk - more space for your snacks, collectibles or simply to enjoy a minimalistic setup. Plus, they also add an aesthetic appeal to your gaming set up.

There are a number of ways you can use LED light strips to enhance the aesthetics of your gaming setup. You can place them along the back of your desk, on the back of your monitor, along the edges of your ceiling/floor, on the inside of your PC, and more! The LED light strip is flexible and can be trimmed/extended to fit into any place in your room or set up. Simply measure your space, cut the LED light strips to length, and stick them into place - or easily extend their reach up to 10m with Yeelight extension kits.

Desk Lamp – Mi 1S LED Desk Lamp or RGB Bulbs

Desk lamps are a great way to enhance your desk setup as well as add some functionality. If you’re not too keen on going all out with RGB lights, Mi’s 1S LED Desk Lamp will add a nice atmosphere while keeping things fairly minimal and it’s perfect for other activities such as studying or reading too. It produces a high-quality bright light that’s flicker-free with even and natural illumination, and you can adjust the brightness and temperature via the knob or Mi Home app.

Headset Stand – Wooden Studio Headset Holder

A headset holder is such a simple addition to your setup but keeps things looking clean and crisp.

It’s 10-inches tall and fits almost all headphones and headsets, and its style will fit into just about any desk.

This massively sized surface will fit your Keyboard and mouse perfectly and provide a large area of space for movement.
