HOW SHOULD I SET UP A HOME WORKPLACE?

It is nice to set up the home workplace in a quiet room in the house. Ideally the best place to set up a separate room as a home office, but also the excellent places are a quiet corner in the bedroom, living room or in the hall. If you don’t have too much of space a wall of about 100 cm wide should be enough for setting up a small home office. Find an empty spot on the wall - preferably near a window - and you can get started!

WHAT DO I NEED TO SET UP A MODERN HOME OFFICE?

Basically you need a nice desk and a good desk chair. And especially when you work long days at home, it is advisable to use solid furniture that encourages a healthy sitting posture. Think of an adjustable office chair and an adjustable desk, with which you can even work standing up. In addition, there are office accessories that make working from home easier, such as practical and stylish organizers and pencil trays.

PRACTICAL ADVICE

While selecting a home office chair think also about your flooring. If your floor is made out of wood then you need to get a chair with soft wheels, otherwise your wooden floor will be damaged.

It is also good to think about the color of your chair. If you have kids or dogs I would not recommend to go for light colors, but select a darker tones.
THE BEST CHAIRS FOR YOUR HOME OFFICE
THE BEST CHAIRS FOR YOUR HOME OFFICE

1.Herman Miller Aeron: Iconic, comfortable, breathable

Price: € 955 new and € 762 refurbished

It is a number one selling office chair in the world.

Main characteristics

Aeron is a robust chair, it has an almost floating quality. You can sit at Aeron for 8+ hours a day with little or not body fatigue. This chair provides you exceptional back support. This chair is going to last for a very long time, so it worth the price.

Its elastomeric suspension seat and backrest has eight latitudinal zones of slightly varying tension that comfort and support you while you sit. It’s like your weight has been lifted off your joints and pressure points are relieved all over your body.

Practical features and benefits

The latest update to this 8Z Pellicle also allows body heat to pass through it so your skin maintains a comfortable temperature the whole day.

This ergonomic chair comes with a head cushion and high mesh back, allowing you to rest your head and maintain a straight body posture at the same time.

You get your choice of casters for your wheels for carpet, hardwood floors or both and all of them have quiet roll technology that, let me tell you, works like a charm. This chair makes almost no noise while you’re shifting, which is another huge pro especially when sharing a workspace with others.

Important to remember

The model comes in three different sizes — small, medium and large. It's important to find a right fit to enjoy all the benefits. Otherwise it will be uncomfortable to use the chair.

Drawbacks

To my personal opinion a drawback of this chair is that its weight is 18 kilo. So if I like to move it to my balcony to work outside for a while it might be not so easy.

2.Herman Miller Sayl: Unique, comfortable, good price

Price: from € 461 new and € 320 refurbished

Main characteristics

Ergonomically designed, lightweight and compact the SAYL office chair offers excellent lumbar support and has specially designed hinge points to flex and support the pelvis.

Lumbar support means that the ears, shoulders, and pelvis (hips) are kept in alignment, and the natural inward curvature of the lower spine is maintained.

It is easy to adjust to your liking while the elastolex foam and fabric seat provides cushioning that conforms to the contours of your body, leaving you able to sit in it for extended periods of time comfortably.

Practical features and benefits

The Herman Miller Sayl represents a good compromise between a cheap budget chair and a high-end chair. But it doesn’t have the advanced adjustments and ranges—such as in seat depth and arm movements.

If Aeron is too boring-looking for you, the Sayl has a distinctive design that draws you in the second you see it.

Drawbacks

For me personally a minus point is a difficult the cleaning of this chair. Due to sophisticated plastic net at the back of this chair the cleaning of dust and dirt out of this chair is quite difficult.

3.Vitra ID Concept: Mesh, Trim, Air, Soft
Price: from € 588 for new ID Air and € 300 refurbished

Main characteristics

The ID Chair Concept offers their customers numerous customization options to create their personalized ergonomic office chair.

However, as Vitra is constantly striving for optimization, the ID Chair Concept has been completely revised with comfort, design and environmental impact in mind.

Practical features and benefits

Thanks to the new PU foam-free preformed seat F, the ID Chair is now even more durable. With a cushion made from 100% recyclable polyester fibers — also used in mattresses — the highly breathable seat of this office chair is the first of its kind. This allows customers to create 100% recyclable configurations of the ID Chair.

The 3D armrests have been renewed. The new versions give the ID Chairs a fresh, contemporary look, and the 100% recyclable PU foam-free cushions guarantee extra comfort.

4.Vitra Physix chair

Price: from € 859 new and € 550 refurbished

Main characteristics

The Vitra Physix Office Chair is a design by Alberto Meda. When designing this chair great attention was paid to material and functionality. Despite this, Medo has not lost sight of the chair's appearance. The result is a lightweight design with a streamlined look. The design is based on the idea of ​​creating a seat shell in which a single piece of textile is stretched between two tubes. This technique makes the seat seem to float and, in addition to the beautiful look, the chair also has a high level of comfort. Thanks to the flexible frame construction and the adjustable base, the Physix Office Chair is ideal for any workplace!

Practical features and benefits

TrioKnit or FleeceNet is used for the seat. TrioKnit is a strong woven fabric with a slight sheen. Due to the sturdy quality, the fabric is very suitable for use in office furniture. FleeceNet is a technical mesh fabric made of polyester and polyamide with chenille yarn woven through it. By weaving different yarns together, different color combinations are created. The frame and armrests are made of polyamide plastic. The base of the chair is made of aluminum and, like the frame and armrests, has been given a black or soft gray powder coating. Both the seat and the base are adjustable. This allows you to adjust the chair to your wishes. Soft castors suitable for hard floors are fitted as standard under the star base.

The double wheels are available in carpet or hard floor versions. The backrest and seat are made of polyurethane foam. The Rookie office chair from Vitra is available in different colors and materials.

Practical features and benefits

I find this chair nice and sturdy. The backrest is not adjustable and it doesn’t have armrests. If it is important for you that your home office chair is discreet and not too bulky in a small home office then I definitely recommend to go for it.

7. IKEA JÄRVFJÄLLET: stylish, confortable and the best budget choice

JÄRVFJÄLLET is a very similar to the best seller from IKEA Markus as it has the same comfort but on my opinion is more stylish .
