In recent times, the concept of remote work has become increasingly prevalent, necessitating the need for a well-equipped and organized home office. Recognizing the importance of continuity and efficiency in my work, I took the initiative to set up a home office that would enable me to seamlessly transition from the office environment to my personal workspace.

Gaming Desk

The 63-inch Vitesse Gaming Desk: A crucial aspect of any office setup is the desk, and after careful consideration, I chose the 63-inch Vitesse gaming desk. Its spacious surface area allows me to accommodate multiple monitors and other work essentials while providing ample space for paperwork. Additionally, the desk features thoughtful cable management solutions, ensuring a clutter-free workspace that enhances my productivity. I extend my gratitude to my colleagues who helped me research and select this desk, ensuring that it perfectly met my needs.

Gaming Chair

Green Soul Ultimate Monster (T) Gaming Chair: Recognizing the significance of a comfortable seating arrangement, I opted for the Green Soul Ultimate Monster (T) gaming chair. This ergonomic masterpiece provides excellent lumbar support, ensuring I can work for extended periods without discomfort or fatigue. The chair's adjustable features and superior build quality have undoubtedly boosted my productivity and overall well-being.

Ambient Lighting

Proper lighting plays a crucial role in creating an ideal work environment. To achieve the perfect blend of functionality and aesthetics, I incorporated a combination of desk lamps and ceiling lights in my home office. The warm glow emitted by the lamps creates a cozy and inviting atmosphere while reducing eye strain during long hours of work. I express my heartfelt thanks to my friend for gifting me the Ikea desk lamp.

Office Plants - Bringing Nature Indoors

Adding a touch of nature to my workspace was a priority for me. I carefully selected a few low-maintenance office plants, such as succulents and peace lilies, which not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of the room but also purify the air, creating a fresh and invigorating atmosphere.


To strike a balance between natural light and privacy, I chose curtains that could be easily adjusted to control the amount of sunlight entering the room. This allows me to create an optimal working environment throughout the day.

Daily Planner - Staying Organized and Focused

A wall glued daily planner is an invaluable tool for keeping track of tasks, deadlines, and goals. By utilizing a well-designed planner, I can effectively manage my time and stay organized amidst the demands of remote work. I reused one of the Exam Planners which were conceptualized by Atul Mathur and me for Exambazaar. He is the Head of Marketing for all Consumer Brands of 3M in India and had helped customized these for Exambazaar customers.
