Thinking about Dual Monitor Setup

So I currently have a 27inch 1080p 144hz gaming monitor that is curved. I love it btw but I have been thinking of getting another monitor for productivity, like when I game I can look and still see discord or have a website up for like a cheat sheet ect...Just after a year still my monitor is still about the same price. But it's baby brother 24inch same model is half the price and didn't know if that would work or end up being a nightmare due to size not being the same. Plus 2 27inch monitors may be a little to much for my desk. So just getting opinions on what should I get?

I started on a 32" 1080p primary/23" 1080p secondary

Moved onto a 27" 1440p/ 23" 1080p.

There's a very slight adjustment period going between two different monitors, especially if they aren't on the same level (my secondary monitor has a mount that sits lower than both my old monitor and the adjustability of my current one), but I've gotten used to it without issue.

For different resolutions, there will be a section of the higher resolution along the bottom where you're unable to transfer to the second monitor. For 1440p/1080p, it's the lower ~1/4 of the monitor.

Well they will be same everything just the size is different. Second one is gonna be a 24inch curved as well.

I used a 21" secondary display when I had my laptop. Then a 24 and the same 21 when I built my PC. Then two 24s. Then two 24s and a 27" 1440p. Then two 27" 1440p monitors and one 24" 1080p. I've only now got 3 monitors that are all the same vertical height. It's fine

So mixing 2 size's is perfectly normal and not ghetto? LOL

depends on how much space you actually need, which is going to depend on how you have the monitors mounted (VESA mount, included stands, or something else?) your keyboard size (full, TKL, 60%, something else?), your mousepad size and required space, and the footprint of your desk. A 24"/27", full size keyboard, a 37x27cm mouse pad,and a mid tower case all fit on a 132cm desk with a bit of room to spare.
