Must Buy Items for a Functional Home Office You Actually Want to Be in

When COVID arrived, it brought with it the concept of working from the comfort of one’s own home. Commonly known today as WFH, it abolished the daily commute and uncomfortable office attire and replaced them with lounge-wear and zoom meetings. While COVID might be dwindling into the past, we have warmed to the idea of WFH and we’re not quite ready to go back to the 8-5 (9-5 if you’re lucky) office life we were once accustomed to. In fact, according to Microsoft News, “more than half of UK workers would consider quitting their job if hybrid working was axed”. So, considering hybrid and flexible working is going nowhere anytime soon, it’s time to invest in your home workspace.

Height Adjustable Desks

When working from home was first introduced, we may have adopted some unhealthy habits, working from bed being one. However, once the initial novelty wore away, along came the back aches, poor posture, and neck strain. To help these habits be a thing of the past and counteract the damage they’ve caused, we’ve chosen some of our favourite adjustable desks from Smart Living.

Firstly we have the Lana Smart Electric Height Adjustable Desk. Going above and beyond an average desk, this innovative creation fuses modern day tech with office furniture, featuring a wireless charger, a USB charging point, and built-in Bluetooth speakers for an immersive experience. What’s more, it also allows you to easily switch between sitting and standing to find the perfect position for your work and keep your posture in check.

Another adjustable desk we love is the The Ola Height Adjustable Desk from Koble Designs. With its stylish and modern design that combines maple wood and classic white, this desk makes for an elegant piece of furniture that fits in perfectly with your home’s aesthetic.

Finally, we have the The ökoform Miniöko-up Desk, which may look familiar to any Dragon’s Den fans! This heated, height-adjustable desk will keep you warm throughout your working day with its integrated electric heater. With its oak desktop and black metal legs, it’s not only functional, but a chic addition to the home.

Office Chairs

You may be proud of your routine that consists of actually getting dressed and up out of bed to work. However, whether you’re crouched over the laptop throughout the day or hunched over on an uncomfortable stool, these positions will soon compromise your ability to stand up straight without a shooting pain. So, how can you avoid this? With ergonomically designed home office chairs from Smart Living, of course!

We simply have to begin with the Koble Laila Soft Velvet Home Office Swivel Chair. This soft velvet vintage style office chair gives an effortless touch of luxury to your home and office space. We just love the stylish, forest green colour combined with the high-quality upholstery and pulled detailing. It’s the perfect addition to support your back and enhance your working environment.

Next up, we have the Buro 2-in-1 Fitness Bike Desk Chair. This practical design is the perfect way to stay active during those days when back-to-back meetings have you glued to your seat. Not only can you choose your challenge with customizable resistance levels, but you can establish the perfect height to personalise your working space and keep comfy all day.

Finally, the Maja Chair is the answer to all your aches and pains.

This ergonomic home office chair has a premium Italian mesh back and ultra-soft back support for 24-hour usage.

Air Control

Last but not least, Smart Living have all the essentials to create a healthy, balanced environment around you. One that you can comfortably work in, no matter how humid or baltic it may be outside.

While we wouldn’t dare complain about the summer months, there’s no denying that these days the temperatures can verge on the uncomfortably warm side. Instead of resorting to desperately fanning yourself with your paperwork, treat yourself to a Duux Globe Table Fan to keep you cool, calm, and collected.

And when the temperatures start to drop? Smart Living have those toasty heaters to bring the blood back into your hands, such as the Duux Threesixty Smart Heater. Controlled by the smartphone app, the built-in fan fills the room with luxurious heat in an instant.

To conclude, the ultimate working space is one that supports your focus, posture, and comfort. With extendable tables that get the blood circulating, specially designed office chairs to support your posture, and adaptable air control to help you through the seasons, Smart Living has all angles covered. Put your slippers on, get your laptop out, and take working from home to the next level.
