Top 10 Home Office Setups on Twitter: June 2022
We are back with a new edition of the Top 10 home office setups on Twitter for June 2022. But first, we will discuss some recent trends in remote work.
Good news for distributed workforces. According to new research from the University of Chicago, the rise of remote work can save companies more than $200 billion. At the same time, it makes it easier for the Federal Reserve to handle inflation since remote workers accept smaller pay increases which ease the wage-price spiral.
In our newsletter, The Remote Times, we cover the latest tidbits and news on remote work trends. This will be fresh and crisp in your inbox every Friday, so do check it out to find interviews with remote work experts, curated content, and podcasts on everything remotely work-related.
As remote working has become more popular, more and more people are sharing their WFH setups. Some do this to show off how much time and effort went into creating their ideal setup, while some want to inspire others with their journey.
Whatever the intent, we are happy to rank the top WFH setups for all workspace lovers and nerds. As always, we included the fan favorite, the "Funny" category! Check it out below, and don't forget to share it with your family and friends!
This month our number 10 spot goes to @ClarkDeHart for this minimal setup. Although it is simple in arrangement, it looks like the best cozy spot to spend the day working. We like this setup because it maximizes the corner space in the house. Also kudos for keeping the desk clear and using the underneath storage to keep things tidy.
You can tell @ClarkDeHart is a wildlife enthusiast just by looking at the wildlife frames on the walls that scream nature lover. And it seems he is serious about getting proper sunlight and staying in a happy mood with that sun lamp on the corner of the desk.
Meanwhile, the iMac with the magic keyboard and mouse, as well as the SD Memory Card Reader Adapter make for a powerful workstation. We also hint at an office chair peeking out from the bottom corner of the picture, just perfect for getting almost any kind of work done.
We wonder what that award was granted for. Maybe an amazing natural history film?
This setup by @IikeClockwork is not joking when it comes to displays. The four screens are provided by an AOC monitor on an adjustable arm and external webcam, a self-standing ASUS monitor, another black monitor, and an HP laptop that are ideal for any gamer.
And we can tell @likeClockwork is a gamer through and through with those two wireless Playstation controllers and the Logitech G710+ keyboard with pink and blue keycaps. We can’t help but wonder how many quests has she finished on RuneScape up to this day.
Although there’s little desk space, @likeClockwork has managed to fit all her gamer needs as well as some personal ones like a handy notebook and even her prescription medicine. We hope you are taking care of yourself!
We like this setup because of its many screens and the flexibility it gives the user to do all at once, be it playing games, tweeting, or just getting some regular work done. Our only suggestion is a little bit of cable management to take it to the next level of efficiency.
Coming in at number 8 is @inkedtater’s WFH desk setup. There are many things going on in this home office, but one thing is sure: a Dev/Ops Engineer works here. The setup itself is simple with a 36” monitor and 13” MacBook Pro on a stand, what looks like a Keychron keyboard, and an ergonomic mouse. The tri-corner desk has enough space to accommodate all his gear, such as an additional laptop stand, another MacBook, and a third laptop.
The ergonomic chair, desk lamp, and drawer unit tie together this workstation, where we guess @inkedtater spends countless hours coding
What we like about this setup is its randomness. There is a Rubik's cube next to a couple of travel mugs, a chocolate bar ready to be eaten, and a bonsai on its stand. We can see that bonsai has @inkedtater’s full attention because it looks lush, probably thanks to that watering can beside it. We are curious about what kind of plants were on the pots and if they were high maintenance.
This WFH setup by @LoveneeshDhir sits on spot number 7 thanks to the cool lighting from the backlit keyboard and the two displays. Although we really can’t see much of the specs for each device, we can make out a 13” MacBook Pro with a touch bar.
We agree, @LoveneeshDhir, your setup has a hard-to-beat night vibe. We are sure you get to code for endless hours when you get in the groove. We just hope you are sitting on a comfortable chair while doing all that work.
Number 6 of this ranking goes to @DwayneNcloud’s impressive monitor arrangement. There are two sets of monitors supported by some sturdy monitor arms hanging from the ceiling, and above them, there is another monitor also with a ceiling mount.
This setup has all the right elements for podcasting or hosting online events. Equipped with a ring light, a studio microphone, a webcam, speakers, and a water bottle, @DwayneNcloud must spend a great deal of time speaking online.
The room would not be complete without an impressive background. Here, @DwayneNcloud is using all available wall space to showcase his many Microsoft certifications and his love for Pearl Jam, stick man sculpture included. The bookcase encloses books, awards, and probably one of his most prized possessions, a Star Wars-inspired Father’s Day gift with the names of his three kids.
Making its way to number 5 on our list is @craigbeingcraig’s Scandinavian-inspired setup. The light-colored wood paneling makes for a peaceful environment that along with that wide window must make an idyllic place to get work done.
The main setup is a simple sit/stand desk from IKEA, a Dell laptop on a stand, what seems to be a Blue Yeti microphone, a lamp, and an office chair. The plant on the corner of the desk gives the space a subtle touch of color and a necessary natural accent. The room is complete with a couple of framed posters, a Viking horn, and many awards.
We already love the way this setup is looking right now. Once you do some cable arrangement, we are certain this place will look breathtaking.
Fourth on this ranking is @a_ct_cool’s home office setup. The layout is simple and clean with this one. There is an HP 27” monitor, MacBook Pro, a pair of headphones, a notebook, and a smartwatch on its charging bed, everything on top of a white desk with a couple of drawers for storage. The desk lamp and small plant light up the room making it inviting to spend hours working.
We like this home office for its simple aesthetics and cozy ambiance. The art and the navy blue color on the wall give it a professional vibe. No wonder you spent two days straight sitting at this desk, we would too! Just curious about where you got those plants from.
The coveted third place in our ranking is for @kreuzercode. Another minimal setup filled with cool gadgets and some fun figurines. Starting off is an ultrawide LG monitor with the newest BenQ Screenbar clipped on top of the monitor which famously illuminates the screen without casting a reflective glare as a regular lamp would.
The light-colored wooden desk also holds a MacBook on a Ugreen vertical stand, a Blue Yeti x World of Warcraft special edition microphone, and a black and yellow Logitech Pop Keys keyboard. Beneath the monitor, there’s even a LaMetric smart clock, the one that connects with everything and even tells you when the sun is coming up or setting down.
What we love about this setup is that it lets @kreuzercode’s personality shine through. We can tell he is a Potterhead with those Dumbledore and Voldemort Funko Pops perked up on the window sill. We haven’t missed that Octocat figurine next to the LaMetric smart clock.
To make things even more interesting, this workstation keeps a healthy balance between tech gear and some trusted analog organization strategies, like sticky notes on the wall. We appreciate how you are still making paper notebooks a thing. Just one question, have you figured out where to mount your webcam yet?
This time around, the second place goes to @JamesSLock for giving us an enviable workspace with tons of natural light and some pretty impressive specs. What first caught our eye was the widescreen monitor prompted onto the desk with a sturdy monitor arm that is also holding a full-frame Sony camera that doubles as a webcam. That’s some crisp resolution for online meetings.
What sets this home office apart is the beautiful wooden table that’s functioning as a desk. On it are only a few elements like a mechanical keyboard with a wooden wrist rest, an Apple Magic Trackpad in black, speakers, a matching notepad and pen, and a small plant in a golden pot. Close to the wall is a Shure microphone on its mic arm and a MacBook on a wall mount. Everything looks organized and ready to start recording a podcast or hosting an online course.
Let’s not overlook the three other mechanical keyboards resting inadvertently on the side of the desk on their very own stand. Doesn’t this setup make you want to start writing your next piece of viral content?
The winner of June’s work-from-home setup ranking is undoubtedly @alistair_hey. This setup might seem like any other but wait until you see the shed that he built for his dream home office. According to @alistair_hey, two months prior, this space was just a patch of gravel at the end of the garden.
The setup itself comes down to an LG monitor and Logitech webcam suspended with an adjustable arm that looks like it is also holding a microphone and a key light. On the automatic stand desk, we have a keyboard, mouse, and wooden wrist rest over a Victsing galaxy desk pad. Further back are the speakers and a vertical laptop stand. From another picture, we know that the CPU is on the floor and there’s a gamer chair that ties everything together.
The mind-blowing part is the 3 x 4 m shed that @alistair_hey built on his own. His effort was definitely not ignored and instantly became a Twitter sensation. The second photo lets us peek at the decor inside the shed. It’s fully equipped with a cabinet for extra storage and a sofa, we can only imagine how many power naps are taking place there.
This setup by @pastramiboi reminded us of the early days of the pandemic when everyone was experimenting around their homes to find the perfect spot for a home office. According to @pastramiboi, there should be a coffee table supporting that laptop we barely see on the bottom corner. But hey he’s keeping himself hydrated and sharp, Of course, the Tom and Jerry reruns encourage neuroplasticity, that's a scientific fact, right?
Thank you @pastramiboi for taking us back memory lane and putting a smile on our faces.
