*Work + Home Office Essentials

I've been working from a home office since my time in university and since then it has changed considerably from a dull, utilitarian space to a more clean, fresh and comfortable room which is much more conducive to work, for me at least. There are a few work and home office essentials I've discovered, from the very basics to others that are a little more obvious yet important and understated. 

Desk 
One of the most important aspects of any office, whether at home or at work, is a desk. Mine is from Ikea, it's white, clean and is the perfect size for the room and for what I need. I love desks with added storage or something a little more unique about them such as glass topped desks (which I love and will probably buy next) to more modern, modular office furniture - the latter is perfect for a work place as it's sleek, professional and easy to switch up, move around and change. Additionally, a tidy space means a tidy mind which is something I always stick by as if my desk is cluttered then I tend not to be as productive. 

Office Chairs
Next up, a comfy ergonomic chair is another must for a work or home office. I think the most common are mesh office chairs which I do like the look of but for my home office I definitely prefer something a little more homely and larger. I tend to spend most of the day in my home office so it needs to be comfortable but again, as with my desk, I think I do need an upgrade soon and I might opt for a cosy, homely chair instead.

Stationery
Stationery is something I can't get enough of, I'm constantly buying more but I do use it everyday for to-do list, notes and ideas. I always have a fulled stocked stationery drawer in my desk that is filled with notebooks, sticky notes, pens, page makers and my bookmarks so it's all together. I adore Kikki K stationery as well as notebooks from Old English Co and my personalised Ryman notebook

Light
Last but not least is light! I have my desk right next to a window so I can get as much light as possible as there's nothing more productivity draining than a dull, dim and dingy office with little light. I also have a gorgeous and unique light from Filampthropy which I adore and it looks perfect in my office at add a little colour and light into the small space. Daylight bulbs would also be fantastic for work or home office lights to get rid of that headache inducing florescent office lighting. 

What are your work or home office essentials?
