In addition to the necessary technical equipment, the right furnishings are essential for an optimal home office. In order to be able to work sensibly within one′s own four walls, it is advisable to adapt the workplace to the activity and the living space. The choice of the right desk and office chair is very important here. Those who work permanently at home should think above all about ergonomic solutions. These promote not only productivity but also health.
Ergonomic standing and sitting desk
If you invest in an ergonomic desk, you can prevent not only back and neck pain, but also concentration problems and circulatory disorders. Alternating between sitting and standing work in particular has a positive effect on circulation and ensures even blood flow throughout the body. Everything you need for an ergonomic computer workstation is provided, for example, by the ELX-121BW desk model from ESMART. This [url="https://amzn.to/36wg3yW",name="ergonomic standing and sitting desk",title=""] is electrically height-adjustable and has a choice of a work surface of 120 or 180 centimeters in length and 60 centimeters in width.At the touch of a button, the desk height can be continuously adjusted between 73 and 123 centimeters, making it suitable for both sitting and standing activities.

The right office chair for prolonged VDU work
Prolonged work on computer screens is mostly done sitting down. Anyone who frequently works from home should therefore also attach great importance to a chair with high seating comfort. After all, the wrong chair not only leads to back pain, but also to posture problems. To prevent this and to work comfortably, ergonomic chairs are particularly suitable. These can be adjusted in height and can be individually adapted to your needs. Our recommendation: To ensure healthy screen work even on long working days, [url="https://amzn.to/2KQn8C7",name="the ergonomic desk chair from ECLIFE",title=""] is a good choice.

Suitable desk lamp for relaxed eyes
Working at the computer for a long time is very tiring for the eyes, so it is advisable to use every opportunity to relieve the strain. Natural daylight and breaks from screen work are best suited for this. In addition, you should pay attention to suitable lighting, which ensures relaxed eyes and a sense of well-being. A well-equipped computer workstation therefore has not only the right ceiling lighting, but also a suitable desk lamp.
For this purpose, the manufacturer TaoTronics offers a [url="https://amzn.to/36wUMp3",name="LED desk lamp",title=""], which provides soft and even light with 5 brightness levels.

Always choose lighting that offers you different color temperatures. These include the light colors: Warm, neutral and daylight white. While warm white light relaxes, colder light tones promote concentration.
Requirements and wishes for a home office are completely individual. Our recommendations and tips therefore only represent a minimum level of equipment that can be expanded and optimized indefinitely. However, anyone who wants to work productively and efficiently in their own four walls in the long term should think about ergonomic, functional solutions.
Regardless of whether the workplace is designed to be minimal or flexible, the decisive factor is that it is optimally equipped for your work requirements and the available space. In the home office it is advisable to furnish the workplace not only under practical and functional aspects. The equipment should allow concentrated work, correspond well with your furnishings and at the same time bring a certain feel-good factor.
