In fact, the majority of those in the professional services spend at least some of their time working from home.

 

Throw in those among us who are self-employed, consult or freelance on the side, or who are writing the next best selling novel, and the need for a home office environment that is conducive to productivity is greater than ever.

 

But what makes a suitable and functional home office? Take away the bells and whistles like files, label makers, and fancy desktop accessories, and an efficient home office can be broken down into five key essentials.

Home Office Furniture for the Ultimate Workspace

If you’re not comfortable while you’re working or simply don’t have the right home office furniture, it’s a safe bet that you won’t get much accomplished. Thankfully, brands like South Shore, Nexera, Sonax, Prepac, and more have you covered with desks, workstations, chairs, shelving, and all the right storage solutions so you can create the perfect home office setup.

Desks, Workstations, and Office Chairs

Desks and office chairs are two of the most importance pieces of office furniture. They’ll be the items that you use the most, so you want to be sure they’re the perfect fit. Coming in a range of sizes and setups, desks and workstations usually have space to accommodate a laptop or desktop computer and other office essentials. If the desk you choose has limited storage options, pick up a desk hutch to add to the workstation. And to ensure you stay comfortable during long hours of sitting, choose an ergonomic office chair.

Bookcases, Filing Cabinets, and Shelving

To keep your home office organized and uncluttered, you might want to consider adding a few accent pieces, such as bookcases and shelving, designed to hold books, DVDs, CDs, file boxes, magazines, or your favourite knickknacks. There are even a variety of designs and sizes that are a perfect fit for any space. And if you’ve got a lot of confidential files to store, a filing cabinet will keep it all organized with labelled folders and lockable drawers.

Office Organizers and Storage Solutions

There’s no better feeling than when the stuff you need is both organized and easy to find. Office organizers like storage units or document holders will help keep all your important files within easy reach. Some storage units feature shelves for your essentials, plants, and pictures of your loved ones, as well as a separate closet that gives you a place to hang your coat or an outfit. With the right office furniture, your home office can be a place of comfort, organization, and productivity.
