The Best in Office Equipment
When you work from home, having a dedicated home office is key to being productive. If you’re new to working remotely, there are a few important things you should consider when setting up your home office.
It’s easier to set up your home office if you have a list of home office ideas to guide you. That list includes a computer, hardware, headphones, and even décor to complete your home office.
Hardware for home offices
You can’t work remotely without a computer, and your first choice will be between a desktop or laptop computer. If you choose a desktop, you’ll also have to decide if you need a monitor and mounting hardware.
Keeping a strong Wi-Fi connection at home
A strong internet connection is vital for a home office. If you find the Wi-Fi signal in your home office isn’t strong enough for Zoom meetings or multitasking, you may want to consider a new router or an extender to transmit a stronger Wi-Fi signal to your computer.
Cancel out noise with headphones
When working in a home office, headphones are an absolute must. They filter outside noise and give you an easy way to video chat or take a call. You can choose from wired headphones to connect to your phone or computer with a cord, or wireless headphones so you can move around while talking.. Keep in mind you’ll want a built-in mic to take advantage of hands-free calling — an option on many of our headsets.
Mice, keyboards, and cables
Computer accessories are a great way to customize your home office setup, and you’ll want to invest in a mouse and comfortable keyboard for long days in front of the screen. Ergonomic computer mice and keyboards can reduce strain and fatigue when typing and clicking.
Make sure you have the appropriate cords and cables for your home office. We carry a wide range of extension cords and smart plugs to help you stay connected.
When looking for home office ideas, one of the first things people recommend is a comfortable desk and chair. Even if your home office doubles as another room in your home, office furniture creates a dedicated space for you to work in.
Create a seating area with a desk, and office chair with lumbar support for optimal back health.
Home office style
If you’re going to spend a lot of time in your home office, you’ll want it to reflect your personal sense of style. Add a few, smart lights to brighten the room, or create a small seating area with a chaise and throw pillows. Photos and digital frames are also a great way to boost your home office design and improve productivity.
