If you, like so many others, suddenly found yourself working from home without a pre-set-up home office you might feel a bit at sea. We’re here to tell you that you can make a functional and efficient workspace for yourself in the comfort of your own home. The Benjamin team has compiled a comprehensive list of affordable work from home essentials to help.

Check out these products that will make your home workspace feel like you’re back in the office.


1. Ergonomic Chair Mesh Backrest

Alera Mesh Backrest 18.13w x 15.38d x 5.88h, Black

If you’re working from home, you’ll be sitting just as much as you did in the office. An ergonomic chair is perhaps the most essential item you can have, but they may seem like a costly expense for a temporary situation. An ergonomic backrest is your work from home solution! Get the back support you need to work comfortably and healthy from home at a fraction of the cost!

2. Footrest

Relaxing Adjustable Footrest, 13.75w x 17.75d x 4.5 to 6.75h, Black
No matter how tall you are a footrest is a great ergonomic feature to pair with your task chair. It’s not just comfortable and will help with your posture and circulation in the legs. That’s a win all around! (Don’t worry, these are designed to be non-slip and scratch-free, so your hard floors stay in top condition.)

3. Monitor Riser

Adjustable Tempered Glass Monitor Riser, 22 3/4 x 8 1/4 x 3 1/2, Clear/Silver
You know what’s a pain in the neck? Looking down at your screen for eight hours a day. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution: put your monitor on a riser to bring it to eye-level. A sleek, tempered glass monitor riser not only reduces your neck strain, but its elegant and will match any décor you have in your new home workspace.

Pro tip: Place your monitor arms length away from you. Too close or too far can cause eyestrain.

4. Wireless Mouse

Wireless Optical Mouse with Micro USB, 2.4 GHz Frequency/32 ft Wireless Range, Left/Right Hand Use, Gray/Black

If you’re using a monitor on a riser or even just a regular laptop, you’ll want a wireless mouse. These are designed for maximum ergonomic hand and wrist comfort. Even if your laptop computer or tablet has built in mouse or touch screen features, a wireless mouse will help to keep your device clean and make you much more comfortable while you work. Best of all, they’re compatible with almost any computer device.

5. Desk Organizer With Dispenser Capabilities
