Tips for Assembling an Ergonomic Home Office

1. Select a Supportive Chair Choose an ergonomic chair that supports your back and encourages good posture. Check dimensions carefully or make sure you can adjust the height so your feet rest flat on the floor and your knees are at a 90-degree angle. For added comfort, seek office chairs with breathable mesh backs and tilt support.

2. Pair it with the Perfect Desk If you have a large home office space or if you work with a lot of physical materials, consider a large home office desk that allows you to spread out. If you have space constraints, shop desks with built-in storage features to cut down on clutter. Make sure to choose a desk at a height that allows your forearms to rest parallel to the floor when typing – or consider a standing desk for a more dynamic working surface.

3. Consider Monitor Placement To reduce strain, place your monitor at eye level, about an arm's length away from you while you’re seated. If you’d like a more fine-tunable working position, use an adjustable monitor arm.

4. Invest in Good Lighting Natural lighting is wonderful, but it isn’t always welcome in a home office space, as it can introduce glare, create harsh shadows, or obscure your face in virtual meetings. Ensure your workspace is well lit with a combination of natural and artificial lighting. For utmost functionality, opt for desk lamps with additional features like adjustable arms and pivoting lampshades.

5. Don’t Forget Organization Keep your workspace clutter-free with adequate storage solutions. Use filing cabinets for paper documents and cabinets or other shelving units for heftier supplies, like books and printers and other office appliances. If your desk doesn’t have built-in storage components – or if you feel you need more than what is provided – shop desk organizers.
