Top 7 Practical Home Office Accessories to Make Working from Home Easy and Fun
It’s been over a year since most of us moved our workplace to our home. And while our home has its own comforts, we have to admit the office also has its own comforts that are missing from home. Well, most of us have probably learned to adapt by now, investing in the right work equipment for home use to make working from home easy.
In this post, we’ll share the top 7 accessories we have found crucial and necessary for a comfortable work from home experience. Check out our list below.
Which home office equipment and accessory do you need in your home office?
Strong WiFi for your entire household
Chances are in your home, you’re not the only one who uses the internet. Your spouse could be working from home, too, and your kids studying in a temporary homeschool arrangement. You have your laptop, your phone, and other smart devices all using internet. A reliable internet connection is a must, one that can handle multiple gadgets in various parts of your home.
A noisy work environment is one of the most common challenges when working from home, especially during virtual meetings. A construction in your neighborhood, the chatter inside your home, vehicles passing by your street—it can be tough to focus when you can hear all these all around you. If your regular headphone does not cut it, investing in a noise-cancelling feature is a practical move.
Another unpredictable condition at home is lighting. And if your daily work involves virtual meetings with video on, lighting is crucial. You can start by adding more lamps in your room. Another thing you can do is get a portable high-quality webcam that can adjust to various levels of brightness, producing clear videos despite varying light conditions in your room. Plus, you can easily take it anywhere with you.
If you’ve been working from home since the pandemic, chances are you’ve cut down on your regular amount of natural exercise from walking and basically from moving about. You’ve settled on your desks for long hours of work, an unhealthy habit bound to have adverse effects in the future. A standing desk can help break prolonged sitting by encouraging you to alternate between standing and sitting while working. Way to stay healthy as you work!
Posture Corrector: Trainers and Braces
Sitting for long hours can have negative effects on your body, and among the primary symptoms is back pain caused by slouching and hunching as you work and type on your keyboard. If you’re suffering from back pain, you might want to check wearable trainers and braces to correct your posture. However, if you have a back condition, make sure you consult your physician beforehand.
Another practical investment is a proper office chair with complete back support. This is crucial especially if most of the work you do is in front of a computer on a desk, seated.
This might not seem directly work-related, but clutter is a primary source of stress. And when you’re working from home, it’s easy for office things and home things to get mixed up, causing clutter and chaos. Invest in a cabinet dedicated for all your files and office supplies. This way, you have a place for everything you need for work and finding them won’t be so stressful.
This is related to the previous point. If everyone in your family works on your own computers or laptops every day or if you share working space, you probably have a lot of cables and wires lying about. Add in cords and charges for phones and tablets, and it can be chaotic. Clean up your space with cable and wire organizers. You will find sleeves, runners and trays, even under desk organizers to keep your cables away and out of sight. Choose the right one for a clutter-free home office and a stress-free work from home experience.
