The rapidly expanding mechanical keyboard hobby has shown that even office peripherals can become true works of art that should be proudly displayed on our desks. The same can be said for the unsung hero of any true desk setup: the deskmat. Typically, deskmats take up considerable space on your desk, covering enough space to accommodate a mouse and keyboard. In this article, we discuss the benefits a deskmat offers to your setup and recommend a high-quality, budget-friendly option that we know you’ll love.
Improve the Sound of Your Mechanical Keyboard
Deskmats typically have a soft cloth surface and a thin foam core. This gives your keyboard a squishy surface that absorbs vibrations more readily than a harder wood or metal surface. In turn, deskmats can make your mechanical board’s typing experience softer and more pleasant for extended typing sessions. Additionally, typing on a deskmat produces a more resonant tone that is satisfying to the ears. The results of this may vary depending on the keyboard, desk surface, and location of the desk, but we encourage you to try for yourself. You could turn a good keyboard experience into a great one!

Reduce Keyboard Movement
During intense gaming sessions, you may find yourself pushing your keyboard all over your desk. Unlike your mouse, we suggest keeping your keyboard firmly in place! Cloth deskmats provides a grippier foundation for your mechanical keyboard’s feet to attach to, keeping you locked in greater than a hard surface can. Additionally, large deskmats encompass your gaming mouse. This means not only does your keyboard have a nice surface to rest on, but your favorite mouse does too!
Showcase Your Creativity
Your desk should represent you and your interests! Whether you showcase your vinyl figures, adorn your board with stunning keycaps, or throw a dope wallpaper on your monitor, there is no doubt that your setup is a place for self-expression. Deskmats can further accentuate this fact with dope designs and bold colors. All black setup? Cover your desk in a stealthy deskmat. Looking to rep your favorite movie or TV series? There’s a mat for you. Digital designers have even worked on deskmats that coordinate with popular keycap sets in the hobby! Designs for deskmats are truly limitless, being a large blank canvas for anyone wanting to express themselves.
