For quite some years, thanks to the availability of high-speed networks and hardware, common people are able to create a home office environment. People feel empowered to create, design, and share these Home Desk setups with the world. As such, I have noticed the following patterns and tips among them.
Types of Desks
This type of desk is the traditional style. It is recommended to use it when there is enough space to accommodate. Users can decide the size, shape, and decoration surrounding the desk based on the amount of space available.
The floating type is meant to be permanent and embedded on the wall. Some designs can also be foldable as well, which helps when the space is very limited.
The foldable one is a temporal desk, which is recommended for small spaces and can be removed once it is finished to be used.
Corner-type desks are small enough to be settled on the corner. They usually have a discrete nature to be placed there.
These desks have motors and use electricity to change the position and maintain them. The motors may vary in power which impacts the speed the desk goes up or down, and the weight it can handle. These are expensive as of 2022.
It is highly recommended to place monitors at the same height as our sight, to avoid the decay of our necks and backs staring down.
Monitor supports may vary in price, use, and form.
Type of Monitor Configurations
Monitor configuration depends highly on the work needs or taste as well. Some people prefer a setup focused on one thing at a time, and others want the most amount of information displayed at once.
Dual Monitor Laptop
Gamer Chairs are not recommended. Gamer chairs tend to be affordable because they normally use cheap materials which can break over the curse of a year or less. They are not good to endure the heat in the summertime.
Ergonomic chairs are the best-recommended option, they may vary in price and size. The good thing about them is that they are specifically adapted to the common human body.
Additional Tips and Recommendations
Avoid placing the camera below your eyes, it is preferable to have the camera on an angle near your eyes or above. Also, it provides a better view of the people seeing you on camera.
When an external microphone is used, it can provide better audio quality. It is preferable to be away from the microphone, about a hand distance. This provides better audio since too close can saturate audio and words cannot be discerned. Too far, the voice attenuates and introduces exterior noise to the audio.
Decorate based on your taste
Since the home office space is yours, you can decide how things are organized and displayed to enjoy the experience.
