Due to recent times and COVID-19, working from home has become more of the norm. Thanks to Spacemaker, however, we can install a home office into any space you’d like.

We’ve curated this list of 8 essential items that should be in your home office, which include the likes of laptops, stationary and more.

Microsoft Surface Pro

The Microsoft Surface Pro is an incredibly beefy machine for something of its size. Made in direct competition with the Apple MacBook Pro in mind, the Surface Pro manages to be as powerful as Apples mainline computers, as well as being more portable and easy to carry.

With a fold out keyboard and tablet-like screen, you can use the Surface Pro for a multitude of tasks, whether its graphic design, video editing or even just daily errands. No matter what you throw at it, the Surface Pro can do it.

With a 10th generation Intel Core i5 with 4 cores, 8 gigabytes of RAM and an SSD for storage, the laptop is guaranteed to be quick off the mark.

The Microsoft Surface Pro is currently on sale on Amazon for £696.31 here.

The “Aeron” is Herman Miller’s most famous line of chairs, boasting three different sizes to fit many different sorts of body types.

Google Nest Mesh WiFi System

If you live in a bigger house, you may come into problems connecting to the WiFi from your router. One way of getting around this, would be to connecting to your device via a wired ethernet cable, but this is a hassle for most people.

Thankfully, Mesh WiFi is the future.

The Google Mesh WiFi system three-pack is available on Amazon for £189.99


Blue Snowball Microphone

Most laptops will have a built-in microphone installed into them, but sometimes they don’t sound the greatest. If you have a desktop computer, even, you’ll still need a microphone for conference calling on Zoom or Microsoft Teams.

The Blue Snowball microphone is a cheap and effective microphone that can sit on your desk via its nifty tripod, picking up your voice loud and clear.

It’s as simple as plugging the microphone in via USB into your computer and being instantly ready to call anyone or record any audio you need recorded.

The Blue Snowball microphone is currently on sale for £50.49 on Amazon.


Sony Noise-cancelling Bluetooth Headphones

The Sony WH-CH710N’s are wireless Bluetooth headphones that keep out any unnecessary noise and have great sound-quality.

The headphones themselves also have a built-in microphone and are iOS and Android compatible, so you can connect from your computer to your mobile phone with ease.

Nespresso Coffee Machine

Needing a pick-me-up? If you’re stuck in your home office, you might not be able to nip to your local coffee shop, so instead, why not invest in a coffee machine of your own?

Nespresso coffee machines are regarded as some of the best in their category and the Vertuo is definitely nothing to scoff at.

With 4 different coffee sizes the machine caters to, whether you’re looking for a shot of espresso or a big mug full of your favourite coffee, the Vertuo has got you covered.

Best of all, they look pretty stylish and don’t break the bank.

Some might think its overkill, but it’s definitely a gamechanger.
