At first working from home seems like a real treat.

You don’t have to battle your usual lengthy commute, can make as many cuppas as you want and often get more work done thanks to the quieter environment.

But, give it a few days and you’ll quickly find yourself not only missing the chatter between colleagues, but also, the one thing you thought you’d never miss: your desk.

If you don’t have an at-home office, working from your humble abode can be less than ideal. From trying to find a socket that reaches the kitchen table, to combating back ache from the less-than-supportive dining chair.

So if you’re finding working from home a figurative and literal pain, these products may help.
