Did you know that, as of September 2020, around 58% of U.S. workers are working from home either full- or part-time? If you’d count yourself among this number, odds are that the novelty of working from your kitchen table has worn off. That’s why we’ve put together this handy guide, outlining some of the best home office furniture to invest in if you’re looking to boost your productivity.
A Desk That Suits Your Workstyle
Whether you’re operating out the spare room or a quiet corner of your living space, good home office design starts with finding the right desk. After all, this space is where you’ll spend most of your time and perform almost all of your daily tasks. So, try to find a desk that accommodates your setup—with plenty of space for your computer, printer, and other workday accessories.
When choosing a desk for your home office, make sure it also fits your workstyle. Corner or L-shaped desks tend to provide more space for the creatively messy, while neater individuals will probably feel more relaxed at a smaller desk. Do you find yourself getting antsy or feeling creatively blocked while you work? Try a sit-stand desk, which can help you stay fresh and keep moving.
An Ergonomic Chair
While your dining room chair may have worked for the first month or so of your work-from-home experience, it’s hardly the most comfortable seating option. With this in mind, consider investing in an ergonomic desk chair when you purchase new home office furniture. Try to find a chair with padded seating and lumbar support that gently curves inward to support the lower spine.
Don’t Forget the Storage
Few things can kill productivity like clutter. That’s why you should include storage furniture in your home office design. The key to good storage is flexibility—try combining shelving systems and storage boxes with one or two traditional filing systems if your job requires dealing with paperwork.
