If you work from home, a properly put together and stocked home office is key to staying on task and being productive. The right office furniture can help turn your regular study into the most productive space on the block. Here are a few of the essentials you will need for a high-functioning home office.
A Good Chair
Working from home means you’re more likely to use your office for personal time. It is your house, after all. For all the hours you’re going to spend working and not working in your home office, you need a chair that can stand up to the extended use. Ergonomics are a huge consideration. The seat height needs to be adjustable and the actual seat needs to be made out of a breathable material that still offers enough padding. Lower back support and a possible headrest will keep your body in a more comfortable position and help fight off lower back and neck pains. Don’t be scared away by price tags. Remember, office chairs are an investment.
And an Adjustable Desk
Sometimes you just can’t sit anymore, and that’s ok. Investing in an adjustable desk will give you the option to sit or stand, depending on how you’re feeling. Standing for at least part of the workday will help improve your posture and core strength, and lower your risk for obesity and diabetes. An adjustable desk is preferable to a solely standing desk because the switch from full-time sitting to full-time standing can be a little rough.
Right Filing System
Your home office still needs to function like a regular office, for the most part. Not having support staff with you means you’ll be in charge of making sure everything is filled and organized. Finding the right filing system will make this task much easier, and will help when you need to find a specific document in a flash.
