What does a home office need?

Home Office Essentials

Storage, lighting and an enhanced Wi-Fi connection are critical to a comfortable, functional home office that will inspire, not frustrate.



Plan ahead to manage equipment, supplies and clutter. What will be the quantity of:

  • Laptops
  • Towers
  • Keyboards
  • Monitors
  • Printers/Scanners
  • Shredders
  • Video Cameras 
  • Undercounter Refrigerator
  • Coffee maker

What will be wired, what will be wireless? Do you need to store books, files, printer paper, supplies or salesman samples? Do you want open or closed storage?



In addition to natural light that your space receives, layer in three more types of light: Ambient, Task and Accent.

Better Connections


If your home office is on the other end of the house or on a different floor, use a Wi-Fi extender or an additional router.

Get adequate bandwidth if, while you are working, other family members will be working from home, streaming movies or playing video games.
