5 Affordable Ideas To Improve Your WFH Set Up

  • July 15, 2020

Lounging in the comfort of your own private sanctuary while hustling your 9-5 gives us the best of both worlds. For some, working remotely has been a way of life. For most of us, shifting from an office desk to a home set up is something new. As we continue to get used to the new norm, it’s no surprise that our home office is now the area we spend most of our day at. To avoid any hiccups, we’ve put together 5 pocket-friendly ways to keep you on your streamlined workflow track!

Designate a space

It all starts with a dedicated desk. Having your own home office desk doesn’t always have to mean a proper desk set-up. Whether you have a proper workstation or you’re working on the dining table, it is worthwhile setting aside an area for working from home. Surviving on the kitchen table or bed can hinder productivity when you have too much clutter lying around. Loose bills, journals and stacks of office documents can ruffle your feathers when you’re trying to focus on work. A well-organized workspace encourages better work-life from home. By having your own designated desk, you can set aside a specific area of your residence as a makeshift home office. A smartly organized space gives anyone office envy. It also allows you to store and have everything you need at your fingertips. This way, not only does it put you into the zone of working, it helps you get work done better!

Elevate your laptop

Of course, if you’re working with limited desk space or space is simply a constraint, our desktop monitor mounts are game-changers. When it comes to making your workstation a tad more breathable to work in, they are just what you need. Not only are they lightweight, but they’re also a nifty way to reclaim some space you just might like to have for your cuppa. Not to mention, they hide pesky cords! Ideally, your monitor should be just below eye level, so you don’t have to worry about a strenuous neck by the end of the day. If you prefer a little more flexibility, our premium selection of gas struct monitor mounts allows a wide range of swivel positions. For a minor upgrade, you can rest assured that your viewing pleasure doesn’t get affected whichever angle you place your monitor at.

Combat the cable clutter

Tangled cords, dust bunnies, dust and grime. We’ve all experienced this before. The best way to avoid spillovers is to have proper storage. Here’s where cable management comes in. As most of us accustomed to the new norm, it’s even more critical to ensure that we keep annoying wires away from sight. If you’re plugging in a laptop to a monitor, chances are you’ll probably be plug-in several other items, like a keyboard, charging cable, and your headphones. That’s where adapters and USB hubs come in. Save the hassle of plugging everything into your laptop every time you sit down at your desk. Simply plug in your USB cord to your computer and plug everything else into it. It’s so much simpler. And the best part? You can easily find them at a price to suit your pocket.

Don’t forget your lumbar support

Whether it’s a long workday full of multiple project deadlines or simply spending copious hours to catch up on your favourite Netflix show, it’s easy to find yourself sitting down for most of the day. Sitting in front of a computer screen for long hours may take a toll on your physical body, especially with leg muscles. When you’re sitting down for long hours, constant straining of your back can also lead to other health conditions, like headaches and blurred vision. If all this seems familiar to you, you just might want to consider having lumbar support. Prevention is key. They provide you with the right spinal support you need without compromising on comfort so you can get through the day with a peace of mind. Of course, you don’t need to buy a fancy pillow. All you need is a rolling towel. Place it between your chair and lower back and you’re good to go!

Consider dual monitor mounts

Switching screens with a flat-screen desktop when you’re trying to meet a critical deadline project can make us feel under the weather sometimes. While this tedious task can get toilsome at times, you just might find that having a second screen on standby can make working from home much more feasible. So whether you’re using multiple programmes or simply flipping back and forth excel sheets, having a dual double monitor mount provides flexibility to working while meeting your economical needs. Not only can you use various software simultaneously, but also multitask and look at two screens while you’re tackling multiple assignments all at once. So the next time you’re having video conferencing which requires document revisions, fret not. This way, you’ll find it easier to compare things side-by-side with dual screens than to flip back and forth between windows. Not to mention, they’re ergonomically sound. Trust us on this, you’ll thank us by the end of the day!
