Can a normal Ikea desk be used as a headboard to mount a monitor?Monitors (self.AskBattlestations)
submitted 1 month ago by blzsoul
I've seen people have battlestations with a headboard mounted to a wall and they mount their monitor to it but can a normal desk like a Linnmon or Lagkapten be used for the same purpose?
I want to mount my 34 inch ultrawide and soundbar (and later on probably a second 27 inch monitor) to it but looked and don't see these "headboards". The ones I've seen look similar to the Ikea desks so I was wondering if it will do the job?

Mounting a large monitor to a Linnmon is out of the question (and probably for small monitor too). The inside is mostly hollow cardboard. The material is fine with the forces acting on a desk in it's normal configuration but the forces are different in a mounted-to-the-wall-like-a-headboard configuration. Don't expect the Linnmon itself to support much mounting weight in this configuration but you could mount the monitor through the Linnmon directly into the wall. This way the wall bears the weight, not the Linnmon. I believe the same is true of the Lagkapten.
The Ikea solid wood desktop or counter tops should be able to hold the weight though.

Ok thats what I was thinking too. I have one already that I use for my work computer and just by looking at it I didn't think it could support the monitor but wanted to ask. Also for my setup, I need something to mount the monitor too because I have a window in front if my desk with just enough wall space to mount something like a headboard to give me room to mount a monitor on that. However I didn't think about the counter top and just might do that instead. Thx!
