If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s that a decent home office set-up is worth investing in. In our book, a good WFH set-up consists of an ergonomic office chair — usually, a good swivel chair with lumbar support will do the trick — the right kind of technical equipment and desk accessories, and last but not least, a desk that’s big enough to support your computer, be it desktop or laptop.
How much space you have in your home office will inform what kind of desk set-up you’ll need. You can get desks small enough to simply hold your computer or laptop, regular office desks if you need additional space for files and planners (maybe even a plant), standing desks, sit to stand desks, and even corner desks.
They also come in a range of different materials — plain, timber, metal etc. — so you can find one that suits the decor and style of your home. We’ve found a variety of desks for every budget, with the cheapest setting you back around $114 and the more expensive ones falling under $400.
Oh, and if you need a matching chair, we’ve found a bunch of those too. Happy Shopping!
