None of us were prepared for working from home for this long! At first, it seemed okay to be spending time at home with family, but before long we all realized that working from home, homeschooling kids, taking care of babies, cooking, and cleaning simultaneously is not easy!
Select a Dedicated Area & Desk
To set up your home office, you need a dedicated area where you can work without any distractions. If you don’t have a spare room, you can choose a corner of your living room or bedroom to create your office space.

Wheels are so important in an office chair. This chair in blush and on wheels will perfectly fit your workstation. It also comes in gray! Invest in it and you will never regret the decision.
Don’t want to Sit?
Many of us don’t get adequate exercise due to our work hours and pressure, and when we work from home, we become even more inactive. One way to fight this is to get a standing desk. This will ensure you don’t sit for long hours.
Check out this sleek, and modern adjustable standing desk from Pottery Barn. This one is in washed pine color. This is definitely more expensive than a regular desk but may be worth it for some of you, especially considering the industrial look and design. You crank it up to go higher if you want. This could be your perfect work companion and a way to burn calories while working.
Keep your workstation well lit
Exposure to daylight is crucial for your mental and physical wellbeing. So, choose a corner that gets plenty of natural light to reduce eye strain and headache. A desk lamp is a must for your home office setup. Having proper light will improve your mood and make you more productive.

Get Storage Space For Your Files and Books

Make your home office more functional
Certain items are essential to make your home office functional. When working from home, you have to stick to a routine and finish your tasks on time. Having a desk clock will be handy.
