Working from home can be quite daunting, especially if you fail to set up a workstation β€” no matter how big or small β€” to fit your individual needs.

For those who aren’t morning people, bed desks may be the way to go, while for others who enjoy sitting at a designated area but would still like a bit more comfort, a compact laptop stand may get the job done.

Even with these two elements crossed off the checklist, there still remains tons of supplementary items that can make what may be considered your temporary “new normal” a much more comfortable and enjoyable experience.

To help you add to your current setup or inspire you to create one that’s more conducive to your needs, we’ve compiled a list of 12 products that you can use to make your workspace a place you look forward to utilizing on a daily basis.
