Work-from-home practices have significantly increased across the country between June 2020 and now (October 2020). In fact, there have been several statistics reported on the positive impact WFH mandates have had on the larger American workforce.

It has been reported that 4.3 million Americans reported working from home half-time or full-time, in 2020. Another study found that 66 percent of remote workers say they are now more productive than when they worked on-site at a company.

While the latter statistic may be true, it goes without saying that one’s at-home work environment plays a major part in one’s productivity. Setting up a thorough workstation — no matter how big or small — to fit one’s individual needs is key.

For those who aren’t morning people, bed desks or risers may be the way to go, while for others who prefer sitting at a designated area that’s still comfortable and productivity-inducing, 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 16 products that you can use to make your workspace a place you look forward to utilizing on a daily basis.
