With online meetings now a regular part of work, you’ll want to look your best on camera. One surefire solution is to prop your laptop up, so that the camera captures your face from a higher angle. (Bye-bye double chin!)
And making a laptop stand out of IKEA items is not hard at all.
Here are 3 easy and affordable laptop stand hacks to help you elevate your laptop to the just-right angle.
#1 Bamboo IKEA Laptop Stand for your desk
I needed to get my camera on my laptop at the right height for all online meetings.
This was a very easy fix to convert a iPad stand to a Laptop Stand. Furthermore, it was cheap, costing around €10.
IKEA items used:
VIVALLA Tablet stand, bamboo veneer | IKEA.com
Other materials and tools:
Measure 4 cm of the back and cut. Cut in half and cut 2 cm slits.
Put together and adjust the slits with sandpaper until it stands flat.
This is a quite easy hack. The hardest part is to adjust the angle of the slits.
Make sure you measure the slits on the standing VIVALLA before cutting them.

#2 Wood + Steel laptop stand
All you need is a pair of IKEA wood brackets and steel bar handles for this lightweight laptop stand.
#3 Laptop stand with fans
A long call? Stay cool with a BRÄDA with fans.
Vicniv mounted 3 desktop fans under the surface of the laptop stand and connected them to a single USB cable to power up the fans. Add a handle to make it portable for working and meetings on the go. See the full tutorial.
