Working from home just got easier! Within this guide we are listing our top work from home essentials and why we swear by them. Keep on reading for why you need these products and where to get them!
If you’ve moved your office on home, have been working from home for quite some time, or just started a new remote position, we’ve got some amazing products you’re going to love. Sometimes we need some type of motivation to work from home, as the atmosphere isn’t the same as the office. Our minds work in specific ways and a new setting can affect our productivity. This is why it’s crucial you spend some time transforming your space into one you’ll love working within.
Is there laundry that needs folding, dogs running around, dinner begging to be made early… well, these are just a short list of things that can affect your success when working from home. On top of these huge distractions, not having a dedicated office space will also impact your ability to successfully complete your work. It’s important you seclude yourself away from given distractions! This will allow you to work from home without wanting to head back to the office.
Down below we have listed our favourite must-have products to transform your current home office space into one that allows you to successfully accomplish your given tasks!
This post features home office essentials that will boost your productivity rate!
Absolute Must-Have Work From Home Essentials
1. Adjustable Desk
This is such a cool buy! This desk allows you to work sitting down, but also, standing up too. It features built in USB ports for easy charging, a dry-erase smart top for accessible note-taking and soft close drawers that fit quite a bit. A very sleek and modern design!
2. Desk Organizer
A must-need! Desk organizers makes it so easy to keep things neat and tidy. This one is a great find as it’s a pack of four which includes a file holder, accessory organizer set, letter sorter, and desk tray. It also comes in two colours!
3. Ember Mug
Do you get tired of your coffee or tea getting cold too quickly? Well, the Ember Mug is the perfect solution to this problem! You can control the temperature of your coffee with its smart app, so your mug never gets cold again. Now that’s a home office must-have!
4. Clear White Board/ Calendar
The perfect addition to your space to keep yourself updated on upcoming events, tasks to complete, and what the next day will consist of. We love this idea as the clear appearance helps it stay very neutral and an easy piece to style around.
5. Laptop Riser
We’ve noticed recently how much our necks hurt when typing on a laptop on a neutral desk position. There is nothing worse than neck pain that leads to a headache. What really helps us limit neck tension? A laptop riser! Keep the screen at eye level so you don’t have to crane your neck down every time you work!
6. Mini Desk Fan
The amount of sensations we go through when we work is unbeatable. Trust us when we say we feel a rollercoaster of weather conditions, regardless of the temperature outside! From super cold to super hot, we experience it all. We always suggest investing in a mini desk fan for those super hot and uncomfortable days.
7. Wireless Charging Tray
This is the perfect addition to your home office (or honestly anywhere in your house). We highly recommend a wireless charging tray because it limits the use of bulky wires. It also helps you stay sane, as you’re not constantly trying to keep track of everything. We love this one!
8. Monitor Stand
We love this monitor stand. It raises your computer monitor while also offering a ton of different features! From a phone holder/mount and a storage drawer… also it’s foldable! Perfect for storing away for when it’s not in use. We love this concept!
We deal with our wires crossing constantly… it’s probably our biggest pet-peeves. Seriously! don’t you hate when you don’t know which wire goes where or how they’re all tied up together? This cable organizer cancels this problem out completely. It sits directly on your desk and keeps each cable in their own lane.
10. Foot Rest
This is something that is pure indulgence….well ACTUALLY, it’s great for your health as well, so we can say it’s healthy for you *wink* *wink*. This foot rest is the perfect comfort addition to your office. It elevates your feet to the perfect position for a comfortable sitting spot.
11. Mouse Pad
We swear by mouse pads. Otherwise, our mouse will constantly snag on the desk top. Buying a good quality one that allows your mouse to move smoothly is something we always suggest. This one is SUPER cute and extremely durable!
12. Apple Magic Trackpad
If you’re over using your mouse and are an Apple lover, snag this trackpad! The Magic trackpad does everything a mouse can, but smoother and less bulky. Personally, we love using our laptops because of the built-in trackpad, so when we have to use a monitor it’s not as efficient. That’s where this apple device comes in. It’s honestly been a dream to use!
13. Silicone Keyboard Cover
This soft silicone keyboard cover is an absolute must-grab. It not only catches any crumbs you might drop, but it protects your laptop from dust and spills too! We highly recommend this!
14. Desk Pad/Mat
By far one of the best home-office purchases we have made! It’s not a necessity per-say, but it does make things a little more clean, sleek, and aesthetically pleasing. This is perfect if you’re trying to protect your desk and help it stay long-lasting! It also is an easy clean with a decor touch to it.
