Whether you freelance, own a small business, or work from home (even if you still go to the office), there is a need to also have a great workspace in your home. A place set aside to partake in all your professional duties without any disturbance from the outside world.
But what is a great home workspace without the necessary gadgets? I’m not necessarily for the over-tweaked workspace which you may have come across at some point on the internet but let’s face the fact, in order to be productive at home, you definitely need all the essential tools that can help you achieve your daily tasks with ease.
I’m talking about a solid desk that can at least accommodate your computer setup and a couple f other hardware devices without any clutter issues. You also need a good chair that will support your back and your entire body posture because health is wealth of course.
Somebody like me, I spend most of my time sitting right in front of y computer at home, working all day. I do get up sometimes to exercise my legs and help my blood circulation by doing some routine early morning exercises.

The point I’m making is that if you’ll be spending most of your days at your home workspace, then there is a need for it to look amazing and be enticing to you in every way.
That is exactly the point of this article. I hand-picked a number of important devices and setups that can help revamp the overall look and feel of your home workspace in order to to keep it enticing to yourself.
Corsair ST100 headphone stand
You need a solid headphone stan because headphones are definitely better for productivity compared to earbuds. The reason for this is their battery efficiency, better microphone, and of course, powerful connectivity, and in some cases, lower latency.
These features are great for constant internet meetings via services such as Zoom or even during gameplay because you don’t want enemies sneaking up on you without you noticing right?
But when you’re done playing games or working, where do place your headphone in order to keep your workplace decluttered? You guessed right, you need a solid headphone stand which is why I’d be highly recommending the Corsair ST100 headphone stand which comes with a number of cool features.
It’s simple and solid and can help add a personality to your home-office workspace.
Though very basic, it costs about US$79 on Amazon, so if you can afford it. But it offers some aesthetic values as well such as integrated RGB lighting…if you’re into RGB and can in fact be controlled using an app, the Corsair iCue. There’s also support for two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports for super-fast data transfer.
Govee DreamView G1 Pro Gaming Light
Although this device is great for gamers who love RGB aesthetics, this can also enhance your workspace and make it look cool and attractive to your eyes.
It comes with two sets of stands, a camera, and a color light strip which can be affixed to your desktop monitor to create whatever atmosphere you’d like in your workspace. The light strip measures about 24 to 32 inches.
Most importantly, you can as well configure the light to your taste as it comes with an Android/iOS app. It even has a dedicated desktop app because why not!
There is certainly no importance for RGBs but they are meant to enhance your workspace’s look and feel. It’s often better to work in a cool and nice environment rather than working under a harsh bright white light which can in fact have a negative effect on your eyes.
Logitech G Powerplay inductive mouse pad
Logitech is one of the prominent figures in the computer accessories sector with numerous successful products including wired headphones. Their mous pad can be an interesting purchase as it will enhance your desk and make it clutter-free.
Costing about US$120, the Logitech G Powerplay comes with two mousing surfaces which are basically a flexible fabric mouse or hard plastic surface both of which will allow for a solid grip so your mouse doesn’t wobble around.
173-piece cable management kit
Remember I mentioned that your home office workspace needs to be decluttered in order to give it that personality it requires, wires are one of the biggest causes of mess in home office workstations and that is where this simple accessory comes in.
The 173-piece cable management kit will help you tuck cables away neatly across your desk and lay them all the back where you’d barely see them.
The entire kit costs about US$13 on Amazon and it comes with everything you need ranging from simple adhesive clip holds to classic cable ties, large wall cable ties, and roll cable ties. All of which make up the 173-piece.
BONTEC monitor holder
Monitor holders are definitely a go-to if you’re a software engineer for example and you work with multiple monitors all of which will erode your desk.
The great thing about desktop monitor holders is that you can switch their orientation or view angles to your own needs and you can keep your desk for more important items rather than eroding it with desktop monitors.
Anyway, the Bontec monitor mount does the trick and enables you to free up the supposed used space by your desktop while giving you the flexibility of quick adjustments and orientations for your monitors.
The Bontec monitor holder is very affordable at just US$32 and it’s designed to fit all flat screens and TV sets with VESA sizes of 75 mm × 75 mm and 100 mm × 100 mm, and can accommodate a total of two 13- to 27-inch displays.
BONTEC’s monitor mount can be tilted by +90°/-90° and swiveled by 180°, which provides even more flexibility and greater ergonomics. It’s definitely a must-have.
Seagate Expansion Desktop 10 TB
Even though I constantly advocate for cloud storage, nothing beats a physical hard drive that can be easily accessed without the internet and can be used to store files that can be used immediately.
The Seagate Expansion Desktop 10TB hard drive gets you a huge 10 terabytes of hard disk space for backups and quick data recovery.
Costing a whopping US$180, this is definitely the best you can get for such a humongous space. This device is definitely a must-have for content creators, filmmakers, and photographers.
Some of its specs include the newer USB 3.2 Gen 1 port for blazing-fast data transfer. File storage can be handled via simple drag-and-drop if you prefer, but Seagate also offers its own tools and compatibility with third-party software.
The integrated hard drive is a fast Seagate Barracuda, which uses the SATA3 standard and connects to the PC via USB.
Just these devices alone, you can surely have an enhanced WFH experience that is even far better than the ones at noisy offices which is why I’m definitely vouching for these as the best desktop accessories to enhance your office workspace and your busy life altogether.
