Post-pandemic, telecommuting is more popular than ever. Chances are, you spend at least part of your week working from home, but because wireless technology allows us to send emails from the comfort of our couches, some people may question the need for a home office. But having a dedicated workspace is essential to ensure you’re as comfortable and productive as possible. Setting up a home office cuts down on visible clutter and keeps everything organized.
Think you need a spare room to set up a home office? Think again. If you have a spare corner or some unused wall space, you can set up a functional and stylish working space with the right furniture. To help you get started, here’s a roundup of the best quality furniture for your at-home office or workspace.
For Small Home Offices
In a small space, it is important for furniture to have multiple functions. Our Mason Ladder Computer Desk doubles as a bookcase. The top ladder shelves can be used for displaying photos, books or other decor, while the bottom shelf drops down into a computer desk perfect for a laptop. Bonus: You can hide that stack of mail and cords by folding up the desk when not in use. At only 19″ wide and 26″ long, this desk delivers on function while taking up very little space.
Bulky furniture in a small space can make a home office feel cramped and chaotic. This Benett Taupe Computer Desk has a sleek, minimalist style that works perfectly in cramped quarters. Featuring sophisticated clear glass tabletops, plus black metal and cool industrial-style legs on a sturdy base, it’s both stylish and functional.
For a longer wall, the Mason Taupe Computer Desk offers 36″ of desktop space. Its thick panels and clean lines blend nicely into a living or dining room. If you prefer something more contemporary, the Nevile White Computer Desk features tripod metal legs for a sleek look. It also offers three open cubbies to store papers, supplies and chargers.
Don’t forget about an office chair! It’s essential to have a comfortable seat to ensure you do your best work. The Patrick Black Office Chair is great for rooms that are short on space. BIFMA certified for commercial and home-office use, it features a curved padded back, a head rest and an arm rests that swings back, plus a thick cushioned seat. It’s also built to last and is upholstered in a durable and breathable commercial-grade black nylon mesh fabric.
For Office Corners
An unused bedroom corner can also serve as a home office. Practical and stylish, the Hampton White Corner Desk is perfect for this function. It has plenty of storage options, with a single long drawer accented with sleek silver plastic handles, and open-bottom shelving for books and other office essentials.
