Battlestation Discussion 5 - Wallpapers

Wallpapers are a great, and sometimes cost-free, way to improve your setup. Sometimes it can be tricky finding the right wallpaper that matches and compliments your setup.

Today I am going to go over my little tricks on how I match my setup aesthetics to my wallpaper. I will also share some personal photos I have taken around the city of Toronto that I tend to use as wallpapers. All the full-res photography you will see in this article is my own unless stated otherwise.

Accessories for your board and setup

Colour matching your wallpaper to the rest of your setup is very important.

In the case of the above photo, I used a photo that matches the rest of my setups major colours. Which are primarily blues and purples. I personally think you can use a variety of complementary colours, as well. A great tool to figure out what colours go with what is a colour wheel tool. Look for primary colours in your setup and see if you can match them here.

Another huge tip I can offer you is simple is better, but if you way to choose a wallpaper with detail, make sure it’s not overly chaotic. What that means is something with too many details can be over-bearing and make your desktop, and battle station, look cluttered.

Below are some of the photos I’ve taken. Click into them to get the high-resolution files! Note: Some of these are really big files.  Also, these wallpapers are for personal use only. They are not to be used commercially, or for monetary or any other gain.
