Need some inspiration for your home office? We’ve put together three different WFH set-ups, whether you’re after something basic or need a little bit more.
A Basic Setup – For a minimalist approach
Keep things simple with the basics – perfect for those just starting or transitioning into a work from home role.
Prevent headaches and eyestrain that result from smaller screens with a monitor, plus have more space for your endless excel sheets and multiple windows. We’d recommend a hi-res ultrawide monitor like the Acer 34” WHD UltraWide Monitor for ultimate productivity. The 3440×1440 alleviates stress on your eyes, while the ergo stand lets you easily adjust the monitor as needed.
Keyboard & Mouse
Prevent carpal tunnel syndrome and work in complete comfort with a good keyboard and mouse combination. We’d recommend considering the below features:
- Typing preference: this varies for everyone – some people like a padded keyboard, others a silent – we have a great range of silent, mechanical and padded keyboards for you to try.
- Ergonomics: opt for an ergonomic keyboard like the Logitech K860 Split Ergonomic Wireless Keyboard or mouse for added comfort and support – keyboards with built-in wrist rests take the pressure off your wrists. When choosing a mouse, you want an option that fits the contour of your palm, like the Logitech MX Vertical Advanced Ergonomic Mouse.
- Bluetooth: if your device is light on connections, a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse is the solution to keep your USB ports free for other uses with a wireless keyboard and mouse.
- Multi-Device: have more than one work device? A multi-device keyboard or mouse provides a seamless experience with just the press of a button – some mice options even let you copy and paste from one device to another.
A Step Up – For those wanting something more
Got the basics sorted but need a little more? Round out your wfh office with a webcam, laptop stand, riser and headset with mic.
A must if your day revolves around video meetings! Options like the Logitech C922 Pro Stream Webcam can film in up to 1080p quality and will put your built-in webcam to shame.
Want to utilise your laptop as an additional screen? A laptop stand lets you raise or angle your work laptop to the best position for an effortless experience.
Headset with mic
If your home office has a few distractions – flatmates, kids, someone mowing the lawn – a headset will help you stay focused and present in meetings, as well as prevent anyone around the home from listening in on meetings or presentations.
Simple but effective, a riser raises your monitor and can help you improve posture and alleviate strain on your neck. Pout has a great range of risers that also double as wireless chargers and docks/hubs.
The Complete Set-Up – For everything
Want it all? Complete your office with a standing desk, mic, dual arm monitor, twin docking station and ring light.
Spending eight hours sitting at your desk can take its toll on the body. Break up long periods of sitting with a stand-up desk and easily adjust the height of your desk to stay productive while either sitting or standing.
Twin Docking Stations
An easy connection for your dual monitors, a twin docking station provides extra ports for your device and makes dual screens a breeze.
Get perfect lighting every time with a desktop ring light. Pair it with a blue mic and webcam to have the best audio and picture combo on the conference call.
