As a couple where one or both partners works from home most or all of the time, creating workspaces that cater to your individual needs, yet naturally align with the overall décor of your home can be a challenge. Keeping that in mind and ensuring that your dedicated workspace at home is set up and ready to use as soon as you move in, here are a few work from home essentials that you need to add to your wedding registry.
Comfort is key and if you are going to be sitting, standing, presenting, or generally hovering around your work desk for most of your day then Sauder’s North Avenue Desk is one to add to your registry. The sleek and minimalistic design comes in three colors, and it has just enough shelving under the desk to place your daily office essentials for a productive workday.
Look no further than Ashley Furniture Program Bucket Desk Chair to rest into as you power through emails and calls. The height-adjustable, swivel home office desk chair comes with an upholstered bucket seat in faux leather so that you can feel equally classy and comfy while checking items off your precious to-do list.
To help improve your posture at work and relieve any joint pain from long hours of standing, sitting or resting in weird positions to get that video call angle just right, a comfort mat alongside your work desk is a must. NuLoom Rugs’ anti-fatigue version provides ample support with its durable PVC and polyester makeup and is easy to clean in case of any spills or stains.
An elegant desk lamp can elevate your work from home experience both functionally and esthetically. The Jonathan Y Fisher Desk Lamp with marble plinth, brass neck, and white shade fits the bill nicely. Not only does it take up very little real estate on your desk surface but it’s also easy to maintain and offers a versatile piece that can be moved around to other spaces too.
For simple, yet effective storage on your desk to save everything from home office essentials such as pens, and sticky notes, and other office supplies, to also hold personal items such as scrunchies and reading glasses, as well as decorate your dedicated workspace green with potted plants, this Umbra Trigg Desk Two-piece Vase Set is a great addition to your registry. The clean lines, edgy shape, and color options make this a sure win.
Work-appropriate sippers are a must to truly zone into the work from home mode, so what better than a personal coffee mug that makes you own the day? Corkcicle has great color options (if you’re eyeing multiples to add to your registry), comes in stainless steel with a non-slip bottom, and can keep your hot beverage warm for close to three hours.
If you’re considering smart home appliances, then one of the essentials here is the Sonos One Voice Controlled Smart Speaker (Gen 2), which easily integrates with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Its compact size ensures easy placement on your desk, and the pristine sound helps focus on work mode with all those moody tracks you added to your playlist.
When it comes to smart accessories, Courant’s Catch: 3 wireless charger and accessory organizer serves up a wireless tech solution to ensuring fully charged devices and storing items that you frequently use during the day right on your work desk. The charger tray is compatible with several global brands and the Italian leather finish sure adds a dose of oomph.
No more running to the copy machine at the end of the hallway because your work from home printer is right by your side. Canon’s Maxify Wireless all-in-one office printer is the high-speed need you deserve at work. It easily adds up to nine users, has AirPrint capability, can be controlled from your mobile device via the brand’s app, and offers a touch-intuitive LCD screen.
To create a work from home setup space without taking up all the square footage that a floor desk does, Sauder’s Anda Norr Wall Mount Wooden Desk is one to consider. Easily assembled, and in a versatile size, the door opens out for a stable work surface, revealing a felt tack board for leaving notes to self and a reasonable top shelf space for your mug, pen holder, wireless headphones, external hard drive, and other essentials.
This is only a fundamental list of work from home essentials that you need to add to your registry during your wedding planning process. But, depending upon the nature of your work and how much you will be using your workspace, remember to check the dimensions and materials for your furniture and fixtures so that you benefit most from the workspace you’ve designed for yourself.
