The Perfect WFH Office Setup

An ideal working from home office setup is actually not hard to achieve, it just takes some time to setup. Think about it, everything has to be ideal for you. That way, you can maximize working efficiency. The laptop, mouse, chair, desk, etc. it all has to mesh and work together in unison, like the olympic synchronized swimming competition. Okay, it’s not that serious (for some). And, remember, your ideal setup is different from others. Don’t think that your setup has to match another’s. Focus on what makes you productive, efficient, yet, comfortable at the same time. Check out our top picks for inspiration and ideas, as well as some sources to help guide your purchases during your ideal wfh office setup journey.

Office Chair – This one’s important. You’re sitting on your ass all day at work – the least you can do is give it some comfort. Long gone are the days of ugly, hard, standard looking chairs. We’re living in the 21st century, don’t be surprised if you see a hover chair advertised in the near future. But, let’s stick to the current reality…here’s some of our top picks hand-selected from Amazon:

The laymen: SMUGDESK Office Chair, Mid-Back Breathable Mesh Office Desk Computer Desk Chair with Lumbar Support

The gamer: Polar Aurora Gaming Chair Racing Style High-Back PU Leather Office Chair Computer Desk Chair Executive Ergonomic Swivel Chair Headrest Lumbar Support

More office chairs can be found at Wayfair, Office Depot, Target, and Walmart. We just beg you, for the sake of your tushy, get something comfy.

Laptop – You can find them just about anywhere. Questions arise when you start asking yourself, “Do I go with PC or a Mac?”. Forget that. Find what fits your budget and purpose. Are you looking for something that can handle spreadsheets, video editing, gaming, all at the same time? Maybe just something to watch some videos and check your email? Head over to BestBuy, Amazon, Newegg, Dell, or HP to start. We are using the new M1 Macbook Pros here at Heads up – THEY’RE AMAZING.

🎓 Pro Tip: Purchase an Apple product through Amazon and you get a 30 day return policy vs. the 14 day return policy through Apple directly.

Computer Desk – Many options to choose from! Overstock, Amazon, Wayfair, eBay, all loaded with computer desks in all shapes and sizes. If you can afford it, invest in an adjustable desk. They (whoever that is) say sitting is like the smoking of the new age. Try switching between sitting and standing. If you’re on a tight budget, try to find a desk long enough for your laptop, mouse, monitor, and more. Remember, your desk probably doesn’t just include office items. Nowadays, we’re eating at our desks, playing games, reading, etc. So, be sure to account for added activities space.

Ergonomic Mouse – Our recommendation is any sort of ergonomic vertical mouse. Whether you suffer from carpel tunnel, wrist fatigue, or are an above and beyond achiever who proactively thinks centuries in advance to prevent health issues, this is for you. Computer enthusiasts everywhere say it’s one of those “Why didn’t I do this before?” moments. Head over to Amazon to check out their variety. Prices vary and can range anywhere from $15-$100, but we would recommend investing in whatever is most comfortable for you.

Seat Cushions – Oh my are these comfortable to sit on! Whether you have the best office chair or are using a brick to sit on, pop one of these on and you’ll be sitting on clouds. Amazon has a whole section on seat cushions that we highly recommend you invest into. Your tushy will thank you, and so will friends and family if gifted.

Alright, now you’re equipped with some basics in getting started with your ideal working from home office setup. Remember to choose whats best for your productivity, efficiency, comfort, and wallet. And, if you’re patient, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for within your designated budget range. Good luck!
