Creating A Comfortable And Efficient Home Workspace

Working from home has become the new norm for many Australians, revolutionizing the way we think about our professional environments. Creating a comfortable and productive home office space can be instrumental in maintaining efficiency and ensuring the overall well-being that comes with remote working. At Ergomotion, we appreciate that every individual has unique needs and preferences, which is why we’re here to guide you through tailoring your home workspace.

First things first, selecting the perfect spot in your home is essential for creating your office sanctuary. Finding a quiet corner with minimal distractions is crucial. A room with a door is ideal, especially if you engage in frequent video conferencing and need to manage background noise. Proximity to a reliable Wi-Fi connection is also important for seamless connectivity.

Once you’ve selected your spot, the next step is to consider your furniture. Since supreme comfort and adaptability are key, investing in an electric height adjustable standing desk can transform your workdays. Shifting regularly between sitting and standing has been shown to improve posture, increase energy, and offer significant health benefits by reducing the risks associated with prolonged sedentary behavior.

Choosing a versatile and best sit stand desk isn’t solely about functionality; it’s about personalization. The best standing desks accommodate your height and reach, ensuring that when seated, your feet are flat on the ground, your forearms are parallel to the floor, and your wrists aligned for optimum comfort. Moreover, raising your monitor to eye level prevents neck strain, enhancing long-term health and productivity. Consistent application of these principles will underscore the health benefits of an electric stand up desk which can be a cornerstone of your home office ergonomics.

Paying attention to your office chair is equally paramount. A suitable chair not only offers adjustable height and armrests but also provides necessary lumbar support to prevent back pain. If your existing chair isn’t up to scratch, a supplementary cushion could provide that extra spinal support. Albeit if you’re already experiencing discomfort or pain, it might be time for an upgrade.

Beyond the basics, there are additional items to streamline your work processes and maintain a productive environment. Consider a dedicated keyboard if you’re using a laptop or a monitor stand with an integrated docking station. A quality headset ensures your privacy while handling calls, and a desk lamp with adjustable brightness helps maintain focus without causing screen glare. Essential peripherals such as surge protectors and Wi-Fi extenders can also safeguard and enhance your tech setup.

Bear in mind that regular physical activity benefits both mind and body; therefore, incorporating small breaks for stretching or walking during the day promotes a healthy work routine. Sometimes, a smartly placed TV lift may offer a change in scenery, allowing you to stand and stretch while you continue to engage with your work content via screenings or presentations.

Organization begets efficiency. Utilise stationary organisers and filing systems to keep your workspace tidy and documents within easy reach. Storage solutions such as bookcases or mobile cabinets can neatly house your resources and equipment, freeing up desk space for essential work.

Lastly, personal touches can forge a space that’s not just functional but also inspiring. Whether it’s an elegant vintage clock to keep track of time, a vibrant lumbar cushion, or aesthetically pleasing bookends that double as pen holders, these small additions can invigorate your office area and stimulate productivity.

By considering these aspects when setting up your home office, you’ll be crafting an environment conducive to concentration, efficiency, and most importantly, your health. At Ergomotion, we understand the intricacies of creating the perfect balance between work and wellness, and we’re here to support you every step of the way.

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
