Adjustability - Most office chairs will offer height and arm adjustment, some lower-end ones may even accommodate recline adjustment. But the best ones will provide 14 different adjustments for maximum customization for the user. Wheel Base - Pretty much all office chairs comes with a wheelbase. This is essential for maneuvering the chair and not overstretching. As most offices are carpeted, you might want to consider one with wheels best-suited for this flooring. Swivel Base - All good office chairs should swivel freely to allow easy access around a desk or just making yourself dizzy if you get bored.
If it doesn't swivel, don't buy it. Fabric - A good office chair's fabric should breathe to prevent the chair from becoming too hot during the day. It should also have enough cushioning so as to not feel the chair's base. Here are some great examples of office furniture you might want to consider:.
Instead of fretting which chair is best, just forget the whole affair and stand while you work. It'll be better for you. Combine working and exercise in one piece of furniture. Stand, walk, or run, and work. That's multitasking done right. If you can't be parted with a chair, you can still grab some exercise with an under desk trainer. How could you refuse such a proposal? Instead of that plain old fashioned office desk , why not consider upgrading your working life to the 21st century?
What's more, they can often double as a standing desk. Why not consider a balance board for your office? They have been shown to improve happiness whilst providing a decent workout at the same time. You can make your desk even smarter with the addition of activity sensors. These little gizmos dutifully watch you all day and let you know when its time for a break, or to change posture. These, albeit ugly, desk converters allow you to stand up from your existing standing desk.
They tend to be much cheaper too than your average standing desk. Yes, they do exist. If standing isn't doing it for you and your regular sitting is 'so last season,' why not consider a Mogo Seat? Does sitting at your carefully selected office chair still make you suffer from back pain? If you really are stubborn about sitting at work, consider getting an ergonomic office chair , such as the one above with kneeling options.
Office accessories like Atmorph's Window is basically a digital picture frame. It cycles through various scenes around the world and even displays video and has sound output. Devices like Logitech's multi-device keyboard not only looks awesome but it provides a handy regular wireless keyboard to your smart devices. Simply dock them and type away with ease. If you have a larger budget, you might want to splash out on a smartboard like the Jamboard.
Yes, we know projectors are portable by design, but the ViewSonic M1 is something else. Why not consider a phone charging station for maximum phone-charging convenience. Since you upgrading the office, don't forget the most important room there - the kitchen.
There is a massive range of smart appliances that you can choose from including a Microwave with a built-in Alexa. Office furniture is, obviously, an essential part of the working environment. Especially if you have employees, for obvious reasons. Apart from computers, lighting, and other office essentials, if your staff has nowhere to sit or put stuff on, your business will likely come to grinding halt.
When deciding to choose office furniture there are a few basic considerations that should be made. But most home offices should be a bit more task-oriented, so you should consider the more invigorating daylight 5, K temperature of our pick.
Depending on the size and color of your workspace, you could go with a brighter bulb, namely a watt or watt equivalent, or install a dimmer switch to balance out your lights. The sleek, stylish Fully Jarvis is easy to move into a wide range of positions, has a five year warranty, and comes in three colors. An adjustable monitor arm is the best option to keep your monitor at an ergonomic height—with your eye level 2 to 3 inches below the top of your monitor—so that you can maintain proper posture and avoid slouching or craning your neck.
We found that the Fully Jarvis Monitor Arm is the best for most people who want to save space on their desks. Fully covers it with a five-year warranty. Its inch vertical range allows for a total height of It can extend 24 inches side to side, tilt 90 degrees, rotate degrees, and pan degrees.
It comes in white, black, and silver. People over 6 feet tall need added vertical range to position a monitor at the right height, especially with a desk that lets you switch positions from sitting to standing. Expensive, but sturdy and adjustable to fit different heights and postures. We looked at 34 models and tested 17 of them, and we found that the Rain Design iLevel 2 works best for the widest range of people and laptops. A quick push of the left-to-right knob underneath the laptop tray adjusts its height.
Compare that with the tricky adjustment of six knobs into uncertain load-bearing shapes on the Furinno stand we tried, or the ratcheting, not quite confidence-inspiring notches of the Aidata , Goldtouch , or Amazon Basics stands we tested. The iLevel 2 firmly held modern laptops with screens as large as 15 inches in our tests, though a heavier laptop may bounce a bit if you place it on a less sturdy desk.
The aluminum helps conduct heat out of your laptop, and the iLevel 2 hides cables behind its bottom support, unlike the Griffin Elevator and most other open-design stands. The biggest drawback of the iLevel 2 is the sticker shock from its certainly justified price. If you plan to use only one kind of laptop on your desk, the slightly less expensive Rain Design mStand is worth considering. It raises a laptop about 5.
The cable-router hole in the back and the C-shape design under which you can stash a keyboard and mouse are better than on the iLevel 2. In the end, however, no laptop stand, not even the pretty Elago L4 , did any better than the mStand or iLevel 2 at raising a laptop than the ultimate budget option: using whatever large books you have handy.
You can even custom-design the colors with that option. Looking for a phone dock? In testing, this surge protector was one of the best at preventing voltage from reaching its outlets, plus it safely stops all power once the protection wears out.
It has 12 AC outlets plus coax and phone ports. After more than hours of research and testing with an electrical engineer, we think the best option is the Tripp Lite Outlet Surge Protector. It will actually stop working when its protection circuits wear out, as opposed to relying on an easily ignored indicator light. A cheap and easy option for bundling shorter cables. The best tool for wrangling desktop cables that move around a bit is a pack of Velcro-Brand Thin Ties.
After looking at more than a hundred products and testing a select few during months of desk work, we found that this simple, cheap option is the smartest. Of all the alternatives we tested, the Velcro-brand ties offer the best way to bundle up thin or medium-thickness cables, or to run cables along desk legs. The best-looking and most adaptable way to manage infrequently moved cables. You can set it up without unplugging much: Cut the self-rolling sleeves to the lengths you need, and add stops and Y-junctions where necessary.
The design lets you easily bundle up the spread-out wires of a desktop PC or monitor and then bring in or let out cables on the way to the surge protector. If you have fewer than 10 cables that travel less than 9 feet, the Soba looks nicer and is easier to set up than simple zippered sleeves. We tested and liked channels from both Electriduct and Master.
A good-looking, simple box for hiding the mess around your surge protector. We found the Bluelounge CableBox to be the easiest cleanup option in our testing. You can pop the lid off if something new needs power. And clutter has its own psychological cost. The no-fuss design is appealingly simple, but if you want the option to build your own, we like the Like-it Large Desktop Station.
Four pen experts recommended this pen unanimously. When we interviewed pen experts with more than 17 years of combined experience writing about writing tools, they all agreed on one thing: The Uni-ball Jetstream is the best pen for almost anyone. It will dry indelibly—and so quickly that left-handed people can use it without worrying about smudging. The Jetstream also requires little pressure to write with, so once you get a feel for how to use it, you can write incredibly fast since it pretty much glides over the page, especially if you write in cursive.
For most people, though, the 0. Its rotating lead keeps the tip sharp as you write, making for the cleanest and most consistent writing. This newest version also has a pocket-safe retractable tip. The Uni Kuru Toga Pipe Slide mechanical pencil set itself apart from the more than other models we evaluated through research, interviews, surveys, and testing—including a testing panel of 70 Wirecutter staffers.
Unlike any other widely available pencil, the Kuru Toga has a unique ratcheting internal mechanism, so each time you lift the pencil from the page, the lead rotates a tiny amount. What does that mean? Because the point never gets blunt, your to-do list, diagrams, and mind map will look exactly as sharp when you finish the page as when you started it. And your lines will always have the same width. Highland Notes stick effectively on a useful range of papers and surfaces, from printed books to loose-leaf paper to computer monitors, and they provide a pleasing surface for writing with pencil or pen.
The drawback: Highland Notes are available in a pretty limited range of colors and sizes compared with the dizzying array of Post-it Notes. If you need many options, we advise picking up the Super Sticky variety of Post-its, available in a recycled version which never hurts. Our testers and researchers concluded that the accordion fold got in the way of using the pad on its own, and such pads tended to unfurl when carried around in a book bag or briefcase.
Solid construction, a smooth-writing magnetic surface, and a low price make this porcelain model our choice for a quality whiteboard. After testing seven popular whiteboards over several weeks in the Wirecutter office in New York, repeatedly writing and erasing with a variety of dry-erase inks including letting ink dry and sit untouched for days at a time , we think the best whiteboard for most people is the OptiMA RitePlus porcelain magnetic board. The RitePlus comes with a year warranty, among the best we encountered, and this solidly constructed board comes with usable mounting hardware, all packaged securely for delivery—not a given with lower-cost melamine dry-erase boards.
For the extra money, however, you get that year warranty versus three years of coverage for the melamine board, along with easier erasing and better construction, hardware, packaging, and magnetism. The popular chisel-tip marker puts down plenty of pigment, remains easy to erase, and lasts a long time even when abused. We put 10 dry-erase markers to work around the Wirecutter offices and found that the best pen for the money is the classic Expo Low-Odor dry-erase marker.
And it lasted the longest of all the markers we tested when left uncapped, putting down a usable amount of ink even after we neglected it for a week. The Staedtler pens offer solid coverage but require a wet cloth or their own built-in eraser for cleanup. In our latest round of testing we interviewed experts, researched over 80 notebooks, tested 24 and found the Apica Premium CD Notebook A5 to be the best notebook.
The paper is thick, smooth but not plastic-y , and works well with a variety of pens including inky fountain pens with little feathering and minimal ghosting. Pencils write especially well on its cream colored paper but it stands up to ink with only a little more ghosting than our pick.
This design seems like a gimmick, but we found that the Clear View made drawing straight, accurate highlights easier than any of the other markers we tried. In our tests, the bright and visible ink worked well over print, pencil, and pen ink though it smeared a bit on wet rollerball and marker and exhibited minimal bleed-through save on the thinnest printed pages. If you need to highlight on superthin pages, we recommend the Sharpie Gel Highlighter instead. The Gel Highlighter also smeared handwritten ink and pencil notes more than the Clear View.
We researched planners and tested 38 more to find eight options we like. But if you want to have room to write notes, doodle, or bullet-journal, we have options for that too. After researching 13 kinds of packing tape and testing five, we found that the best tape for shipping packages is the Duck EZ Start Packaging Tape with One Handed Dispenser.
We taped more than 30 boxes to get a feel for the dispensers and taped weighted boxes to a wall for months to test the stickiness of each tape. The Duck EZ Start Packaging Tape was the second-stickiest, the second-sturdiest, and the least expensive tape we tested. In our stress tests for stickiness and sturdiness, the Duck EZ Start tape ranked just behind the Gorilla Shipping Tape, which is around 50 percent wider and costs three times as much.
Plus, small plastic stands on the dispenser elevate the tape roll and provide greater control as you tape. The Duck EZ Start tape dispenses silently, which is a nice perk. They were first and second respectively to fall off the wall in our tests, and they are both more expensive than our pick. Inexpensive, secure, and made with high-quality paper. We placed printed documents in each of the envelopes and held them up to a sunlit window.
The Office Depot envelope was the only one that prevented us from reading the text inside. We expected all the security envelopes to pass this test, and we were surprised to discover that envelopes from the most popular brands, Columbian and Mead, were the easiest to see through. Next we attempted to steam open the envelopes without damaging them and then reseal them without leaving any telltale signs.
We froze a second set of envelopes overnight to weaken the seals and then tried to break into those. After researching 13 kinds of newsprint, nine types of Kraft paper, and 13 different bubble wraps, and testing three of each, we learned that how you pack is more important than the materials you use.
We tested all these packing materials in various combinations by throwing boxes of properly packed wine glasses down flights of stairs. Not a single glass broke or chipped, because they all stayed well protected thanks to proper packing technique. For glass and other fragile objects, begin by wrapping the item in at least two layers of bubble wrap. Center the object on the edge of the bubble wrap, fold the edges inward over the object, and roll the object down the length of bubble wrap.
Secure with a bit of Scotch tape or the like. For a nonfragile object that you still want to protect—a book, for example—wrap it the same way using a layer or two of newsprint. Fill some of the empty box with crumpled Kraft paper to provide a cushion, place your object in the box, and then fill the rest of the space with more crumped Kraft paper. Now for the picks. We also asked members of a blind-testing panel to rank Kraft paper samples from thickest to thinnest, and they chose the Duck paper every time.
Most people can get by with leftover bubble wrap and air pillows from other packages, but if you ship fragile objects frequently, you may want to invest in some bubble wrap. All the other bubble wraps we researched were more than twice as expensive per foot, too large to keep on hand in a home office, or saddled with poor user reviews. Comes in a variety of sizes and stands up well to weather conditions and postal abuse.
We printed hundreds of labels using our pick for the best cheap printer , stress-tested each type of label with water and friction, and mailed a selection of labeled envelopes to see how they would hold up in practical use. If you have an inkjet printer, we recommend the Avery White Shipping Labels instead. The White Shipping Labels smudged when wet and pilled under friction in our tests, but they hold up in the mail and stay attached to packages and envelopes.
The best tool for designing and printing your labels is the free Avery Wizard software for Microsoft Word on Windows. The plug-in asks you for the label code—which you can find on the front of the label package—and the addresses, and then it automatically formats a Word document for you to print. User-friendly and uncomplicated, this software removes all the opportunities to accidentally mess up the formatting or margins.
We researched 11 postal scales and tested three using a scientific weight set and a variety of packages, and we found that the AWS scale has the best-placed buttons for weighing unruly packages, runs on easier-to-replace AA batteries, and usually costs a few dollars less than the competition. Other scales have their corresponding button on top, making it difficult sometimes impossible to see or reach with a large package on the scale. Like most mailing scales, our pick also has a stand that you can raise to keep envelopes steady during weighing.
Both tend to be more expensive than the AWS scale, and they each run on included 9-volt batteries instead of more-convenient AAs a set of which comes with our pick.
