Work From Home Tips: Creating an Ergonomic Workspace

Ergonomic Work from Home Setup

If you’re someone who typically works from an office environment, working from home can bring about unforeseen challenges that require time for adjustment. From managing distractions that come with your new office to creating a comfortable workspace, there’s more to working from home than just ensuring you have a laptop and Wi-Fi.

While we can’t keep all the distractions at bay, we do have some tips to help you create an ergonomic work environment at home.


It’s important to choose a chair for more than just its good looks. When selecting a chair for your at-home office space, look for one that suits your seating preferences.

Ergonomically designed chairs are created to help support your posture, weight, and lumbar. They typically allow for adjustment of the back angle and height, armrests, and seat depth. Be sure to explore each of these capabilities upon receiving the chair. Improper usage of these adjustments can lead to more discomfort.

Similar to the incorrect use of a chair, a poorly designed chair can lead to backaches, neck strain, and overall discomfort if you’re sitting for long periods of time, so it’s important to invest in a chair that’s tailored to you.
