Lighting plays an important role in setting up a successful home office and positioning is key. Working in a poorly lit space can lead to eye strain, stress and headaches which can impact your productivity and motivation. As well as task lighting for your notebook, laptop or desk, you might want to consider flattering lighting for your face if your role involves video conference calls. The best office lighting solutions include desk lamps, track lighting, and LED lights.

Having a comfortable office chair is critical when it comes to setting up a home office. Ergonomic furniture is designed to provide support and comfort while avoiding strain and injury, so be sure to select your pieces not only on style, but on suitability for your needs. If you’re searching for the right chair to do your work in, the Oxford Office Chair from Fantastic Furniture features a modern, high back that is fully upholstered and generously padded for superior comfort and lumbar support.
Home Coffee Break
If you’re serious about your coffee it may be time to invest in a coffee machine! Opt for a pod/capsule machine like the Nespresso DeLonghi Lattissima One if your barista skills aren’t up to scratch and you can have the perfect mug at the touch of a button. Its sleek profile takes up minimal space on your counter and there are over 25 sustainably sourced coffee blends to choose from and the Lattissima One comes with a tasting range of complimentary capsules to get you started.
Keep your workspace focussed and smelling fresh and clean with fragrance. A diffuser is a simple and effective way to gently introduce a long-lasting scent into the office without a flame or electricity. The Home Republic Stone Diffuser from Adairs features a solid marble top and a generous 200ml refillable reservoir; choose from Lemongrass & Ginger or Fresh Cut Gardenia.
