The Essential work from home Supplies to maximize productivity

Work from home supplies are critical for maintaining optimal performance outside of the office. Working from home has been a new experience for many people during the Covid social distancing order. While some found it easy, others have had a difficult time of it. The difference between the two groups is their setups. Those who made sure they had these essentials had higher productivity and focus.

If you’re continuing to work from home or your career has become semi-to-permanently remote, it’s not too late to give your home office the basic essentials! We’ve narrowed down the list and curated these supplies for you. See what’s been missing in your home setup.

The Perfect Home Tech Setup

Modern business runs on technology, and it’s more than just a computer. When you have the right tech in your home office, it’ll do wonders to facilitate your working experience.

What supplies do I need to work from home?

When shopping for work-from-home office supplies, productivity and comfort should be your two primary concerns. To accomplish those goals, here is a home office supplies list that will help you get the most out of your workday.

Home Office Supplies List: 

  • Desk: One of the first work-from-home purchases you will need to make is for a quality desk. Don’t try to work from your kitchen table or a nearby countertop. Invest in a proper desk — your back will thank you later.

  • Ergonomic Office Chair: The ergonomic office chair is engineered to help maintain proper posture, but it is also adjustable to help maximize comfort for those long days working at your computer. Common adjustable features of an ergonomic chair include the seat height, angle and armrests to name a few.

  • Second Monitor: We recommend a second monitor for your home office. In most cases, you were working from a second monitor at the office, so bringing that ability to view multiple screens at once to the home office is equally important.

  • Dual Monitor Arm: We recommend a dual monitor arm like the Fellowes Platinum Series which helps elevate your monitor so that you are not hunched over at your desk creating uncomfortable back issues throughout the day while working from home.

  • Wireless Keyboard: In addition to the dual monitor and arm to support, we also recommend investing in a wireless keyboard for your home office. The Logitech Wireless Keyboard K350 is a model we have had a lot of success with and highly recommend. This will allow you the freedom to move your arms while you type.

  • Traditional Office Supplies: Depending on your line of work, you may also benefit from having a printer or meta art organizer in your work-from-home office. But in addition to that and the items previously mentioned, don’t forget about stocking your home office with traditional supplies like pens, paper, notebooks and sticky notes.
