Home office from A to Z

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, furniture, accessories like printers, papers, and pens and décor to make the entire room welcoming.

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 desktop, you’ll also have to decide if you need one monitor, two monitors, or more.

A printer is also a must-have in a home office. You may need to scan contracts or print paperwork to keep for permanent files. Depending on your needs, you can choose an all-in-one printer that scans, copies, and prints in colour and black and white. There are also laser and inkjet printers that offer sharp text and photo printing.

Maintain a strong Wi-Fi connection at home

Wi-Fi or a strong Internet connection is one of the most important things on your list of must-haves for your home office. If you find the Wi-Fi signal in your home office isn’t strong enough for video conferencing or connecting to your employer, you may consider a new router or Wi-Fi extender.

Mesh routers use three or more discs you can place in key areas in your home, streaming the Wi-Fi signal to wherever you need it. You can also choose a range extender you can place in your home office. It either plugs into an outlet or stands on your desk, and it will 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. There are earbuds that sit comfortably in your ear or on-ear headphones with cushions for long days in your home office. Keep in mind you’ll want a built-in mic to take advantage of hands-free calling and chatting.

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 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. You may need to connect your computer directly to your printer or TV.

Office furniture creates a working space

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, workstation, chair, and chair mat. You’ll also want a storage area, and you can have a desk hutch, cabinet, or bookcase hold your office supplies.

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 new modern desk lamp, smart lights to brighten the room, or create a small seating area with a chaise and throw pillows. Photos and picture frames are also a great way to boost your home office design.
