A year ago, our transition to working from home created a drastic lifestyle switch. My home was ill-prepared for it, to say the least. As we continue working from home, and kids begin schooling from home, we think it’s essential to try to optimize our new workspaces to stay productive, and comfortable. Because who knows how long this will go on for, it might be worth it to invest in that product you weren’t sure you needed at the beginning of this. To help create an ideal work environment, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite WFH products.
Sony WH-1000XM4 Noise Cancelling Headphones
Recently released, the best noise cancelling headphones just got better. These excel at drowning out your surroundings, but best of all, they have a new technology that allows you to seamlessly switch between multiple devices.
Purple Royal Seat Cushion
After just a few weeks of sitting on a kitchen chair, I decided to invest in this seat cushion. It completely transformed my work from home set up. Now, no matter where I’m sitting is the most comfortable spot in the house, thanks to this cushion.
Mount It Laptop Stand
Another ergonomic wonder I didn’t know I needed was a laptop stand. Mount-It’s is simple, it is easy to put in and remove your laptop, and for me, it slants the laptop at the exact right angle, so I’m no longer hunched over the computer.
Lepow Portable Monitor
If you don’t have a monitor already, Scouted Contributor Maria Cassano recommends you get this one. The screen is portable, lightweight and plugs directly into your laptop using a mini HDMI. You can prop it up anywhere and really, she means anywhere.
Canon Pixma TR150
This was the best decision I made in 2020. The Canon Pixma TR150 is the sleekest printer out there. When I’m not using it, it folds up into itself and can fit under my monitor. It is easy to load paper, charges via USB so you can take it on the go if needed, and has a built-in screen to help make printing a breeze.
The Aeron is simply the best desk chair out there. The PostureFit SL technology allows for sitting like you never knew was possible: your chest will open up, your shoulders will sling back, and your pelvis will tilt slightly forward. Once you have a seat in this, there’s no going back.
Jarvis Standing Desk
I wouldn’t call this an essential per se, but it certainly is nice to have. And if you haven’t taken the plunge into desk-world yet, this is a great one to invest in. It won’t impede on your home decor, has four memory slots for different levels, and with the tap of a button can raise and lower itself.
Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet
The Fire HD 10 is pretty low cost for a tablet. It allows for streaming, and has a pretty large display size too. It won’t replace your laptop entirely, but it is excellent for reading on.
Quartet Glass Dry Erase Desktop
A desk whiteboard is a must for staying organized and on top of your to-do list. Scouted Editor Jillian Lucas loves the Quartet because the glass doesn’t stain, and the markers wipe away easy. Ditch your post-it notes and invest in one of these.
The Shark WANDVAC Handheld Vacuum
While there are other great handheld vacuums out there, the Shark is the sleekest of the bunch. Plus it’s designed for high maneuverability so you can get those cookie crumbs that have fallen in that corner. No, that one...over there.
