    I'm a guitarist and design student working on a project that involves bringing together the right elements for an ideal practice environment. Whats your prefered tools, objects, furniture for this space?

    Currently im working on a chair and table design that will have these components:
    • Amp support, positioning and accessibility
    • Storage (drawer and backboard storage for additional leads, headphones, strings ect.)
    • Music Stand
    • Pick holder/storage (easy access)
    • Guitar storage (1-3 guitars hanging)
    • Movable pedal board
    • Attachable guitar lead reel (reduce lead tangle and mess)
    • Built in multi plug for power accessibility
    • Seating that provides back support for long periods of practice
    Whats your thoughts? Idea's? Is it too much?

    A big couch is nice for when you take breaks between practicing but I wouldn't practice sitting down.

    Where do you stand in reference to your setup when practicing?

    It depends on what sort of practice it is. If I'm by myself I usually face towards my amp. If it's with a band, usually facing the other members with the amp behind me.

    Isn't the first question gonna be what is the size of the practice space? Gotta know the layout of room; shape, dimensions, outlets, Windows ect...

    I like this thread though, I can think of all kinds of cool stuff if i had unlimited budget and time.

    Wife out of the house.

    All your ideas work. I also record so I can listen back to find all the flaws I have. That adds, computer, audio interface, for me a USB mixer, monitors and several mics.
    More power than I need. Pretty good rug to run all the cables under. One of those thick rubber mats to stand on.

    I did a quick search and found tons of good examples. Just a few. 7901baee02c1a067_0811-w500-h400-b0-p0--transitional-family-room.jpg download (1).jpg 7750d8c6-b795-4a2b-97c0-6aac2d331c06th.JPG x4m7o5.jpg 7901baee02c1a067_0811-w500-h400-b0-p0--transitional-family-room.jpg

    Welcome LouisF88! I would suggest a set of shelves that could hold CD's (Still a valid tool), music books on tabs and such, small figurines of guitar art. Then last but not least.....cargo shorts.....:cool:
