I’ve been working from home since 2010, way before it was cool! I figured it’s my time to shine and help all you WFH newbies create the best workspace for you.
I currently use my home office for my multiple six figure online businesses, however, whatever you may use your home office for, this list will help you:
- Find the most functional furniture for your specific needs
- Save money
- Get inspired
- Find your personal style (my favorite part!)
Here are the Top 17 Work From Home Must Haves
The Best Home Office Desks of 2022
Arguably the most important piece of furniture you’ll need for your home office, is a desk!
With a wonderful abundance of work from home desk choices available, it makes it harder to make a decision.
I’ve made it simple below.
- Standing Desks
Work from home people are RAVING over standing desks right now. I guess people realized sitting for 8+ hours is not a blessing!
You should consider a standing desk if:
- You would like to stretch it out every now and then.
- Would like to treadmill walk while you work
- Don’t have the space for a chair
2. Other Work From Home Desks
Not leaning heavily towards a standing desk? Here are some other options to consider!
Desks with Storage:
If you are running a home business you will most likely need storage for various equipment.
An L shaped desk is great for:
- Providing extra workspace
- If you have more than one desktop
- If you require more space
Just for Looks (Cutest Desks 2022):
If you’re like, “forget functionality, I want CUTE and instagrammable,” this section is for you.
These options usually have less to almost no storage, and aren’t very big. However, they sure are cute and will help keep the theme of your home style in tact.
PLUS, they’re usually cheaper in cost. Perfect for the hybrid work from home worker.

The Best Home Office Desk Setup
Most of this you may already have, but it’s always nice to look at what’s hot and new, and has everyone talking.
1. Best Printers for Home Office
A printer may or may not be needed for your home office.
Recently, I have found that most work from home offices don’t have one at all. Oh how the times have changed!
- Print, copy, scan (You can do all this from your phone)
- High quality images
- Doesn’t take up too much space (18.11 x 15.08 x 9.21 inches)
- Under desk on a platform
- On a sturdy shelf
2. The Best Monitors/PCs For Home Office
Second to a desk, a PC is going to play a very important role in your work from home office must haves. So, it is important to be sure that you have selected the right one for your specific needs.
The HP M24f 24 inch is a great monitor that will cover all the bases.
- Medium Sized
- 1920×1080 Display Resolution
- Low blue light
- A monitor is best in the middle of your desk, not too close to the wall (if you’re by the wall)
- I like the monitor in the corner look (great if you need space to write!)
- Your computer can be placed under your desk to the side.

3. Laptops for WFH
When you need to step away from your desk for a bit and kick it on the sofa, in the backyard, or wherever you go, a laptop is a home office must have! Much like your PC, different laptops cater to different needs. This is the one I have and I absolutely love it!
- 4GB RAM
- Comes in Blue, Blush Pink, White, Black, & Rose Gold
- Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
- HP Webcam with Integrated Digital Microphone
- Easy to lug around (4.47 pounds and 14 inch screen)
PRO-TIP #1: Renewed laptops area great way to save some money, especially if you are only going to use this laptop for work purposes.
PRO-TIP #2: I recommend a Windows Laptop for work. I know the Macbooks are so cute and aesthetic for your work from home office, but I find the Windows laptops are just so much better for working!

4. Wireless Keyboards for Home Office
Here is where all the fun starts!
There are so many different style and color options, but here are some of my favorite and highly recommended:
- Comes in different color themes
- Circle buttons
- Clicking sound is a little louder (great ASMR moment)
- Bluetooth/wireless connection (laptop/computer/other devices)
This is a great option if you travel a lot. I’m always working on my I-Pad and having a bluetooth mini keyboard makes life so much easier!
- Small size for easy travel
- Various colors
- Tablet or cell phone connection
If you’re not the fancy type, this particular keyboard is a great option.
- Small enough for travel – but bigger than a mini
- Basic keyboard setup
- Easy bluetooth connection
- Comes with mouse!
