How to Setup Your Office Desk for Maximum Productivity

Part of the: Office Fitout Collection

Setting up your office desk is an important process because it has a direct effect on the quality of your work and your mental state. Today, we will walk you through how to set up your office desk for maximum productivity. Every decision matters, so take your time weighing the options to choose what’s best for you. 

Desk Setup Ideas for Maximum Productivity

Position Your Desk Near a Window

If possible, you should position your office desk near a window. Natural light helps reduce stress while improving your mood, boosting productivity, and increasing alertness. Additionally, being able to look out the window gives your eyes and mind a break. 

If you don’t have access to a window, make sure your workspace is bright and clean. Try to mimic natural light and add plants to the space because they can also boost productivity, help with stress, and purify the air. 

Consider Getting a Standing Desk

Standing desks have become very popular and for good reason. They offer many great benefits because they are designed to fight the negative effects of sitting for hours on end. Such as high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and increased risk of heart disease. 

You also want to invest in an ergonomic chair, especially if you don’t plan on adopting a standing desk. Ergonomic chairs are incredibly comfortable, which contributes to your focus. More importantly, they help you prevent strain and aches.

Get a High-Quality Mouse and Keyboard

Whether you work on a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet, you should have an external mouse and keyboard. Both of these items will allow you to improve the ergonomics of your workspace. 

If your current setup doesn’t include a keyboard and a mouse, how do your arms and hands feel after working for a few hours? If you experience any discomfort, you will struggle to stay focused and your productivity will suffer. Invest in your comfort and you’ll notice a big difference. 

Get Dual Screens

Getting dual screens will level up the quality of your workspace by a lot. Having dual screens will allow you to open many different applications at once to increase your workflow. 

If having two screens seems like a lot, consider getting a bigger, higher-quality screen. This upgrade will make a big difference and help you enjoy nearly the same benefits as having dual screens. 

Be Strategic with Your Accessories

When it comes to accessorising your office desk, you should be as strategic as possible. You want to avoid clutter while also giving yourself everything you need to be productive. 

Additionally, you should personalise your desk for a mood boost whenever you need it. The most important thing is to make sure your accessories and organisation allow you to streamline your workflow. 

Your office desk setup will have a huge impact on your work, your motivation, and even your health. Consider your needs and prioritise your comfort so you can enjoy increased productivity.
