Home Office Accessories Buying Guide

After you install a desk, chair, and storage, other accessories to your home office depend on how you plan to use the office. To run a household, an office needs management systems for paperwork and electronics. For professional use, you’ll want to tailor the finishing touches to your particular work, for example, architects need drafting supplies and interior designs need to store fabric swatches.

Types of Home Office Accessories

Types of Home Office Accessories

Every home office needs some common accessories, such as pencil holders. Some less common items might help you personally, such as a lap desk. Some of the office items you can anticipate thanks to lists like this one, and a few you’ll discover as you work in the space. Reserve a little of your budget for accessories that become apparent later.

Bookends

Whether you have a collection of books or just tend to accumulate computer manuals, tax files, magazines, or photo albums, weighty tomes collect in any home office. Use bookends to keep books and files in tidy order on your desk surface or bookshelf. Bookends can be simple metal brackets or elegant decorative statues. Look for utilitarian versions at office supply stores. Decorative ones can be found in home accessories and imports stores. Test the bookends with your pile of books to make sure the bookends hold the stack in place.

Business-Card Holders

A hallmark of any professional space is a business-card holder. Even when you work from home, if you host clients or coworkers, you’ll want a business-card holder displayed on your desk or worktable. There are many style choices, so pick what speaks to you.

Decorative Touches

After a home office is fitted with the basics, it needs decorative accessories. Not only will decor make the office suit the rest of your home, it also will make your office a more pleasant place to work. Add art to the walls, curtains to the windows, and perhaps a rug on the floor. Utility items can be attractive, too. Choose a bulletin board with a patterned fabric surface. Light fixtures that cast good illumination can be pretty, too.

Desktop Organizers

Plenty of office items fit into drawers and cabinets, but some may remain on your work surface. Choose a decorative organizer—one with a wood finish or in a cheerful color, perhaps—to sit on your desktop to hold pens, paper clips, or notepads.

Electronics Management

With our electronic gadgets come myriad cords, chargers, screen cleaners, and covers. You’ll need safe and smart ways to manage these items. Consider devoting a drawer, cabinet, or desktop organizer just for gadget accessories. Charging stations, which have multiple outlets plus cubbies for different devices, are ideal. For computers, tablets, modems, and phone chargers, you need a good-quality surge protector. Surge protectors come with various plug configurations and additional USB ports, and in fashionable colors and different cord lengths. Some also claim to conserve energy.

Lap Desks

Not all work gets done in a home office. For portable computer use or a writing surface you can use while watching television, look for a lap desk. These hard surfaces with pads underneath are intended to be portable and used while sitting or reclining. If you send e-mails at night from bed, a lap desk can be more comfortable than balancing your laptop or tablet on your knees. Lap desks feature fabric-covered pads and come with angled surfaces, straps for securing items, cup holders, cushioned edges, and/or nonslip surfaces. Some, like breakfast trays, even have fold-down legs and a small drawer.

Pencil Holders

Pencil holders come in as many styles as pencils. There are colorful, wood, metal, plastic, divided, decorative, or even artistic ones. Take your pick.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

When you accessorize your home office, it makes sense to purchase items over time instead of all at once. When you have a need, you can shop for that specific item. This method keeps you from buying more than you need initially and helps keep the budget in check. Here are other ways to shop for home office accessories:

Matching Components

You can buy many home office accessories in a matching set. A set won’t include all you need, but you can purchase many complementary desk accessories, including a pencil holder, drawer organizer, business-card holder, and file organizer. This helps maintain coordination of your desk items and office.

Singular Function

The other option is to buy each item as needed based on its particular qualities. This makes sense if you don’t need all the components of a matched set, or if you want to use a handmade pencil holder or bookends you inherited from your grandfather.
