Home Office Furniture: Desks, Chairs, Filing Cabinets and More
Whether you’re running your own business from home or you just need a space to get stuff done, the home office is the perfect place to maximize your productivity from the comfort of your own house. However, you can’t have the perfect home office without great furniture, so check out Future Shop’s wide selection of desks, chairs, filing cabinets, bookcases, storage units, and more.
Desks, Desk Hutches, and Computer Armoires
There’s a huge variety of desks
out there, so the best way to approach desk shopping is to consider what you’ll mainly be using it for. Do you just need a simple space to place your laptop, or a larger, specially designed work area for drawing and graphic design? After that, consider the material: solid wood and metal are attractive and very durable, but they also tend to have higher price tags, while plastic and press board might fit in better with a smaller budget.
If you need more space than a standard desk will provide, consider adding a desk hutch
, which helps organize your stuff while keeping it conveniently within arm’s reach. For those homes that are pretty tight in space, like a small apartment, a computer armoire is perfect for placing a workspace into a compact area. Once you’re finished working you can tuck everything away out of sight, which is especially useful if you’re entertaining guests in the evening.
It’s tempting to just grab a chair from the kitchen table to use as your office chair, but there are a few factors to consider first. You’ll be sitting in your chair for most, if not all, of the work day, and maybe in the evenings and on weekends as well. Considering how much time you’ll be spending in your chair, it might be worth it to spend a bit more on a properly-fitting, ergonomic office chair
with adjustable height, back, and armrests. This can help avoid future discomforts like backaches, headaches, and sore shoulders from poor positioning. Also, it might be worth investing in a durable, well-designed chair, rather than getting something cheaper that breaks easily and needs to be frequently replaced. You can choose from a variety of different fabrics and designs, like a sophisticated and professional-looking mesh chair or a leather chair that adds a touch of elegance to your décor.
Filing Cabinets, Bookcases, and Storage Units
Having plenty of well-organized storage can help reduce clutter on your desk and make it easier to find stuff you need. Filing cabinets
are a tried and true solution for keeping lots of paperwork organized and easy to access, and if space is tight you can place things on top of them like a printer or fax machine. Bookshelves
and storage units
are handy for books, magazines, journals, CDs and DVDs for backup data storage, and any other small objects that you’d like to have within easy reach or put on display.
