The home office is more than a secret weapon in times of crisis, but has become an alternative to the classic workplace in the office. Thanks to technological change and digitalisation, the working world around us has changed. However, in order to be productive within one's own four walls, one rule of thumb applies: the workplace at home must be practical and subordinate to the surroundings.

The home office has come to stay

A desk that is large enough and a place where you can work undisturbed are further prerequisites for a good workplace. Storage space for documents helps with a certain basic order. And green plants help to boost productivity in the home office.

A smart light control system adjusts the lighting individually and creates a pleasant ambience of well-being.

In small rooms, the air is quickly used up, so regular intermittent ventilation helps. This keeps you awake and concentrated even after intensive working hours.

Smart helpers for everyday working life

Throughout the working day, there are different requirements that a home office has to meet. It's good to have little helpers on board to make everyday work easier.

Sockets near the desk are indispensable, so you should pay attention to this when positioning your workstation. To supply several devices with power at the same time, there are sockets that also have two USB connections for type A and type C. This is practical and saves space.

If you sit at your desk a lot, a good office chair is a must. A healthy posture should also be considered in the home office. At best, the desk should be height-adjustable or, in small rooms, have a pull-out top that simply disappears after work.
