Working from home is a luxury that I am forever grateful for about my job because not many can. Hence why a couple of years ago I invested in a home office space for blogging and my day job. Most 9-5 jobs require you to be in the office majority of the time, whereas mine not so much. Provided I am working as per my contract, I can work from anywhere in the world. But alas I enjoy popping into the office to have human interactions.
Of late have I have been complaining about my home office no longer being fit for purpose. Mostly because I could do with a new chair (first and foremost), better designed desk and a larger monitor. This is what has prompted me to share my home office wishlist and hopefully my family are reading this. Dont worry about buying new items, I am happy with refurbished ones and I can arrange for a *moving company to collect.
Home Office Wishlist
Before I created a home office space, I used to work from my bed or my living room floor. This was not good for my back, was bad for my eyes and it wasn’t comfortable. I made a decision to create a workable environment at home and it was the best decision ever. But over the years wear and tear have consumed my work station and now I am in need of new items. Here is the items that I need most for my home office.
Home Office Desk
The desk that I currently use I bought from Argos at a good price and it has served me well. But the bottom drawer has now given way and it doesn’t have enough storage for me. Because my seat is not comfortable, I find myself standing behind it to work. But obviously I don’t have a standing desk therefore it makes it awkward bending over.
Ergonomic Home Office Chair
Working 9-5 Monday to Friday then blogging outside these hours I find myself sitting for long periods. My current chair is another budget item I purchased from Argos which does not support me well. I have always struggled with staying in the seat for too long, often I stand for relief. Since I started researching what chairs I need that provide great back support Ergonomic chairs are first choice.
Home Office Monitors
One thing I love about going to the office is I have two large screens which makes working easier. At home I struggle with just working from my personal laptop which is 10 inch screen size. Not really ideal for larger documents like excel spreadsheets or reviewing contracts. I have recently started connecting my laptop to my TV, this inspired me to invest in a new screen. As it has made working much easier but I still suffer with looking at the small screen for other items.
I have a long list of items that I want to purchase for my office space but for now this is all I will share. Things like art decor has made my space more relaxing as I stare at pieces from my travels. I also have small plants near my working space which honestly give me life when I get tired of staring at my screens.
Do you have a home office or office space at home?
