20 Products for Work From Home Office Setup – Work Productively & Comfortably

I have a full-time work-from-home office setup on my 3rd floor. When I started writing this post, I started writing down the list of items to include. For example, I could add ten items for Work from the home office setup. Within a few minutes, the list went from 1 to 20+.

I realized we need many items to make our office space comfortable and productive.

Standing Desk

Not any desk, a standing desk. I remember when managers would hesitate to spend $350 to approve an attachment to make the existing desk a standing desk.

Plus, employees should research and suggest an option. For example, most employers currently provide a standings desk as the default option.

When buying a budget standing desk (below $500), you are looking for just two essential features – The lowest height the desk can go and the warranty (if the motor fails).

Check the following two standing desks. I would pick the first standing table over the second option (if possible). The first table has a C-Frame, and the second table is built with T-Frame.

 

Office Ergonomic Mesh Cahir

Getting the right chair is not easy! I currently have a chair I use from Costco and do not recommend it.

Make sure the chair can be lowered to a height, so your feet can touch the floor. If not, you need a footrest.

There is a reason why your office chairs cost like $1500!

Standing Desk Accessories

If you use a standing desk, you need an anti-fatigue mat or a rocker board.

It’s a must-have, or you probably experience discomfort in your legs. I have both the rocker board and the mat, which allows me to stand longer and comfortably. If I have to pick one, I will first go with the Ani-Fatigue Mat.

Wrist and Hand Grip Strengthener

This is a must-have to save your wrist from fatigue and carpal tunnel syndrome. In addition, working out your fingers and wrist for a few minutes a day while you are in a meeting will strengthen your fingers and wrist.

Monitor Desk Mount

I have been using dual monitors for a long time. You can be more productive with dual monitors.

I have a 24″ iMac M1 and a 19″ Monitor (that continues to work). I keep the iMac monitor right in front of the second monitor to my right at an angle and me.

For my use case, a single desk mount monitor stand works perfectly. However, if you have a laptop with two monitors, you would require a dual desk mount monitor stand.

I used to keep the second monitor above two books, and it was just taking up so much space.

Ergonomic Vertical Mouse

I do not know why the vertical mouse was not the first invented mouse design!

An ergonomic vertical mouse designed for right-handed promotes natural hand posture while using the mouse for long-lasting comfort.

Keyboard and Mouse Pad with Wrist Support

If your wrist is weak, you may experience pain at some point. For example, I noticed that my hand posture was causing wrist pain.

Using a mouse with a wrist pad helped keep the wrist straight vs. an elevated position. So, consider getting a mouse pad with a wrist rest.

Foot Rest Under the Desk

Do your feet dangle and not rest on the floor?

It would help if you had a footrest, not an amazon box or a shoebox. It would help if you had a proper footrest.

Two common reasons for your feet to not rest on the floor – Work desk height is not correct. If the table is too high, you have to adjust the chair height to align with the hand rest of your chair.  If you can’t change the table, then get a footrest.

Blue Light Filter for Monitor

If you feel your eye are getting dry or tired looking at the monitor, try adding a Blue Light filter to the monitor.

Another option might be to get glasses that filter the blue light.

Wireless Keyboard and Mouse

Please get a mouse if you are working from home with a laptop. It just speeds things up for you. I shared a vertical mouse earlier on this page. However, if you want a traditional mouse, here are a few good ones.

1080p Webcam (not the default)

Most default built-in webcams are 720p. It makes remote communication so much better when you have good quality audio and video.

Would you want to watch a grainy video movie or a high-quality video? Unfortunately, I do many zoom meetings, and I rarely find a good quality setup with folks who work from home.

If I want you to get just two items from this list, it would be a 1080p webcam and a quality microphone. I prefer a Logitech webcam. I have the same model that my kids use for their virtual meetings (on Macbook Pro, which came with 720p).

High-Quality Microphone

Say you do not want to invest in a webcam, and you would argue that I do not turn on the webcam while on remote work. Then please upgrade your mic.

The worst thing one can do – is using the built-in default mic on your laptop. You will sound much better with an external mic. For example, I have both Blue Yeti and Blue Snowball. I use Yeti, and the kids use Snowball.

If not a standalone microphone, at least get a Bluetooth mono headtset. Blue Yeti is bulky, but I have a boom arm attached to my table. So, I can move it out of the way. Check out which option works for you. When it comes to audio, it’s the primary way to communicate. So. this is a must-have investment.

Cable Management and Organizer

I have the kit, and I’m working on organizing the cable for iMac and monitors and other wires on the desk. So here’s a cable management kit that could help you manage your desk.
