HOG thoughts on How to create a perfect home office

A home office isn’t just where you spend most of the day working; it’s also where you’ll spend the rest of the night when you’re off the clock. If you find yourself growing bored of your home office, now’s the time to make some upgrades. Transforming your home office is the next step in changing your work-from-home life for the better. If you're working from home but miss the perks of being in a standard office, it's time to do something about it. The more you customize your home office with the right must-haves, the more you’ll enjoy being there. Read on for the best ways to spruce up your home office.

1. L-Shaped Desk

When decorating a home office, there are countless desk styles to choose from. Consider an L-shaped desk if you need an ergonomic way to work. These desks can be a great way to add functionality to your office and create a workstation that allows you to hold virtual meetings, work on your computer, and fill out paperwork.

2. Ergonomic Chair

When it comes to choosing the right chairs for your home office, think comfort over style. While you may prefer the look of a vintage chair, you should go with what makes your body the most comfortable. For this reason, it’s best to invest in a high-quality chair that properly supports your back and helps keep your posture straight.

It’s also better to choose a chair that offers lumbar support, many of which are contoured to fit the lower back. That said, some people prefer a more upright seat height in which case drafting stools make more sense.

3. Office Headset

When purchasing a headset that’s right for you, it's important to choose an option that fits your lifestyle and needs. For example, some may prefer an all-in-one office headset that includes a microphone and other controls. This can be helpful if you plan on taking calls at home or if you like watching TV while working from home.

The better the headset, the more you can ensure you're not distracted by noise, which boosts productivity and focus.

4. Lighting

Lighting is another important part of a home office. As you work in your office during the day, be sure to maximize any natural light in the room. Get curtains that will let in light as needed and provide privacy at night. In addition to relying on light from the window, consider adding some decorative table lamps, as well. If you need more light in your office, standing lamps are another effective way to illuminate your home office. Try to place your office next to or near a window. This could help you by offering you somewhere to focus your eyes after looking at your screen for too long. Looking away from your screen every 20 minutes allows your eyes to rest and also reduces fatigue.

5. Shelving and Storage

One of the most important ways to make your home office more functional is to invest in some storage and good shelving. With new shelves, you can keep your documents in order and within easy reach. Consider adding some bookshelves to your home office to make organizing your binders, folders, and books easier too.

One it comes to buying storage, make sure to invest in a few different kinds. For example, get one large unit and a few smaller ones so you have many options for the future.

6. Wi-Fi

Your home office won’t be complete without a high-speed internet connection. Make sure your Wi-Fi is fast and reliable as you prepare to work from home. If your Wi-Fi isn’t up to speed, take the time to invest in an upgrade.

If you live in an apartment, try asking your landlord about improving the Wi-Fi. Alternatively, investing in a Wi-Fi extender is another option to accelerate your internet connection in your home or apartment. If that doesn’t work, look into satellite Internet. While it isn’t as fast as connecting directly to the network, there are plenty of plans that will help speed up your internet.


Changing your home office can completely transform how you work remotely. If you find yourself wishing to work in a better home office, keep these suggestions in mind to help transform your current office into the workspace you’ve always wanted.
