If you're on the lookout for cool ergonomic products, gadgets, or cute, creative trinkets to help you get some work done, today's list is all for you.

Supportive Ergonomic Chair


A healthy office life begins with a supportive work chair. Without this critical ingredient, if you're sitting down at work, you're probably doing horrible damage to your back, arms, and even your legs. Rather than settling for that same rock-hard chair the cubicle came with, see if you can upgrade to something much more comfortable. Most ergonomic chairs relieve pain and are equipped with specific features to tend to most common office ailments. Prices range in as much diversity as ergonomic products do themselves. Anything with the "ergo" label is designed to cater to the individual. We recommend that every consider their unique situation and health needs before buying. Don't be afraid to call up the dealer and ask for need-specific recommendations!

Dual Screen Monitor


Most folks think of dual screen monitor arms as being only for gamers, computer gurus, and animators, but in reality, they're really for everyone! Two screens are much more user friendly than a single one for folks that spend most of their workday copying, pasting, cutting, editing, or dealing with huge swaths of data. Rather than opening tab after tab, the two screens allow much more room for users to see and do what they need to all in one place. Be sure to browse adjustable ergonomic computer arms to save desk space and prevent health risks from straining to see the screens. In addition, don't forget to dress up your desktop with a snazzy, scenic screensaver for a desk that's like a home away from home!

USB Hubs


We've all been there - stuck at work with a purse full of gizmos and no place to charge them. But this is the 21st century, and thankfully, smarty-pants rule the world. For anyone that relies on modern technology to get the job done, no desk is complete without a personal USB hub. These handy office devices are crazy affordable, and they're available in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and colors to appeal to everyone. They're right up there with affordable CPU holders and keyboard platforms as some of the best tech accessories for desk use in an office dependent on tech.

Desktop Organizer


Unfortunately, it doesn't always matter how neat the rest of your life is - office life can get messy. With papers, sticky notes, cords, clips, and gadgets all part of the mix, it's no wonder desktop organizers have made our must-have supply list. But just because you need one, don't settle for a boring boxy organizer straight out of the 90s. This is the age of high tech tech! If you know you rely on pencils and pens as well as your tablet and smartphone, a powered organizer to maximize workplace efficiency is always a better choice. Look for one that incorporates elements of both the old and the new. Something that's equipped with pencil trays for office convenience, as well as a docking station for your gadgetry, will help you get the job done in a cleaner fashion.

Dry Erase Boards


With all the popularity surrounding open plan office configurations it's no surprise that dry-erase boards have seen a huge spike in popularity. The fact that they're erasable, neat, paperless, creative, and convenient makes these the perfect products to promote workplace efficiency. For those that spend most of the day at a small desk space or cubicle, a tiny portable whiteboard will make an excellent companion. However, for those in bigger offices, dry-erase boards attached to other presentation accessories for office use are great too!

*Bonus tip: If you're really into the power of whiteboards don't be afraid to check out the 2014 NeoCon winner, go! by Clarus Glassboards. They're like portable whiteboards on wheels that are available in all sorts of sizes and colors for a well designed workspace.

Kneeling Office Chairs 101

For those of you that know the plague that is office-related pain, know that you're not alone. Every year, thousands of Americans just like you begin the search for relief. Whether you choose ergonomic chairs, yoga, specialized office accessories, or exercises to relieve your pain, the important thing is that we find it. But, if none of these have worked for you, we're proud to introduce a new possibility! Kneeling office chairs are the product of years of scientific study, and they have been proven to relieve all kinds of pain. Today's article your guide to the many benefits of kneeling office chairs. Enjoy!

Staying Healthy



Perhaps the most popular reason for choosing kneeling office chairs is health. Because so much of the public is now aware that a sedentary, inefficient office environment is the catalyst for pain, scientists and reputable office furniture manufacturers have been searching for ways to fix it. Thankfully, healthy kneeling office chairs are proven to do just that. Kneeling chairs work by tricking the upper body into thinking that the user is standing, which forces proper posture. By bending the knees downward and the pelvis forward, such as when standing, the spine is encouraged to adopt proper alignment. For many, improper alignment is the cause of office-related back pain, so these specialized chairs are adept at pain relief.


*Note: Some side affects of improved posture by using a kneeling office chair are:

Improved spinal alignment
Back pain relief
Strengthened abdominal muscles and core
Improved internal organ activity
Released tension on muscles, joints, and tendons
Improved concentration
Less pressure on the womb for women in later stages of pregnancy

Comfort



The never-ending search for comfort in the workplace is the driving choice behind so many buyers' decisions when they shop affordable office chairs and furniture. No one wants to spend eight hours a day in a chair they can't stand, and that is part of why kneeling office chairs have seen a recent spike in popularity. Despite how they may look at first glance, the knees do not bear all the weight while sitting in a kneeling office chair. Rather, these seats are designed to distribute weight through the whole body, specifically to the thighs, spine, and shins, like when standing. Over time, the body is encouraged into correct posture and comforting pain relief. As an added plus for pregnant women, these ergonomic office seating options have also been known to reduce pressure on the womb, so it is not constantly pressed by the thighs as when sitting in a conventional chair. Talk about healthful comfort!

"You Seem Tense…"


Part of the reason kneeling chairs are known for increased comfort is due to their tension relieving design. The proper-posture approach alleviates pain in a way that is natural to the body, and habit forming. Because these chairs work by distributing the user's weight throughout the whole body, rather than by forcing it all to one point (such as the lower back, knees, or feet, most conventionally), overall stress on the body is reduced. This helps release any pent up tension in joints and muscles for a comfortable seating experience. With a fluid kneeling-like seated position, risk of common office injuries and deformities like "disc prolapse" are greatly reduced!

Take It Easy



There are many health benefits of kneeling office chairs, but in an office, where efficiency and productivity is everything, it's important that seating is utilitarian and easy to use. Thankfully, these chairs are! Adding healthy ergonomic kneeling chairs to the workplace not only reduces pain, it also adds a simple, maneuverable seating solution that the whole office can use. Most models set on casters are equipped with mobility for convenience. The small size and adjustable shape makes storing these chairs a breeze. Simply keep them in a closet or shove them under a desk when not in use. Just walk right out of them from a half-standing position when you're ready to head home!

Versatility



In any workplace, versatility is always key! Seating that can be moved from room to room without inconvenience is a big plus in an active office. Though ergonomic kneeling chairs may look a little confusing at first glance, once the whole office sees how they sit, kneeling chairs become convenient, healthful office seating solutions that must be taken advantage of. With easy mobility, comfort, and incredible health benefits, they make the ideal companions for those long, rough days at work. From the desk, to the cubicle, to the conference room, kneeling chairs are the newest high tech innovation for office pain relief. Enjoy them wherever you need to!

DIY Office: 5 Cool Desks Made from Doors!

Looking to create a one of a kind office space to conduct your business from? If so, today's post is a must read. In this DIY office article, we'll highlight 5 of the coolest office desks you'll ever see that are actually made from doors! These inspiring self-made desks showcase that with a little know how and design ingenuity you can create a unique workstation that sets your space apart from the competition.

Rustic Desk

First up. this rustic desk with mobile metal base. This workstation is made from reclaimed wood doors that were attached to a unique metal frame structure. Talk about a conversation piece! It's easy to see and appreciate the time that went into crafting a DIY desk of this quality. However, if one of a kind is what you're after, this inspiring station is sure to get the creative juices flowing. Simply add some cool accents like the retro chair and desk lamp and you'll be ready to roll. When it comes to office furniture and design, it's all about letting your individual personality shine. We think this space and desk do just that to perfection.


Next up, this simple yet sophisticated rectangular desk constructed from a folding style wood door. At first glance the folding top will catch your eye and wow with it's antique feel. The elegant straight leg design provides a table style look that's perfect for luxurious work environments. This popular look is trending for both modern and traditional office makeover projects. Beautiful DIY desks like this are not often for sale, but then again... wouldn't you rather make your own to showcase!

Next up, this cool door desk with books for legs! We love the design ingenuity booming throughout this conversation starter. A rectangular glass worksurface was used to cover the main desk while a separate door frame was used as a back drop for added appeal. The antique look is sure to impress, but the front legs steal the show. This one of kind station looks super cool, but we do question the stability. Can you imagine working on an important project and bumping one of the front legs? Talk about a bad situation. We image the weight of the main worksurface makes the legs difficult to move, or that the books are glued together for extra support. None the less, this is one neat DIY desk that's full of creativity. 
When we started writing this article on desks made from doors, we were fully expecting to stick with an
Desk Made from Airplane Partsantique vibe. However, we came across this awesome modern ergonomic workstation built from the side of an airplane. Talk about unique! While this station probably takes up too much space to fit properly in the average office, it was just too cool to leave off. If this looks like a project that interests you, try contacting old air fields. You might just be surprised at the salvageable materials you come across to make your desk. From airplane doors to to wings, there's no end to what you can create.


Last but certainly not least, we thought we'd end today's article with a luxurious hand made desk that's full of class and elegance. This 4 leg table desk features an antique wood door with metal trim that's guaranteed to earn any space an abundance of compliments. We love that the antique knob was left on for aesthetic appeal. The base used matches the surface perfectly to create one of the best DIY desks we've ever seen. The simplicity of the design is not to be mistaken for an easy project. This is one upscale desk that's absolutely stunning.

From using your office chair properly to adding the right ergonomic accessories, the days of discomfort in the workplace are about to be a thing of the past!

Use Your Office Chair Properly

All too often office employees are stuck dealing with an inherited office chair that just doesn't cut it. That being said, if a new chair is out of the question, simple steps can be taken to boost your comfort. Start by determining the type, model, or style of chair you have. Take a quick pic if possible as a reference. Next, contact a reputable seating manufacturer and provide them with the best info you can on your specific chair. Ask about the adjustable features and obtaining instructions on proper use if available.

In most cases, simply adjusting your chairs height, arms, and back angle will make life in the cube much easier!

Get Organized

Take a look around your office. You'll no doubt notice a variety of clean and cluttered cubicles. During your visual scan take a look at the workers of each associated cubicle. Upon inspection you should notice that those with clean work spaces are working far more productively than those covered in clutter. Take the time to create a plan of attack for your own space and get started. Start by clearing your worksurface of unnecessary items, removing trash, and doing some basic cleaning. Next organize your file cabinets and office storage components using a system that works for you. Remember, getting organized is helpful, but keeping it that way provides long term benefits that lead to office success and comfortable work days.

Feeling a bit cramped in your cubicle? Don't hesitate to stand up and stretch every now and then.

While simply stretching will do in most cases, taking a short walk might also be a good idea to help relieve some stress and anxiety generated from long days in your cubicle.

Eat Healthy

The power of a healthy lunch should not be under estimated. Eating fresh fruits, vegetables, and energy boosting foods will no doubt keep you working more efficiently than you would be after chomping down that double bacon burger. As fatigue is a common problem in the workplace that greatly relates to discomfort, foods packed with vitamins and nutritious benefits are a must. Try looking up some simple recipes and healthy eateries in close proximity to your office. Go healthy for one week and there will be no turning back!

Go Ergo

When all else fails, go ergo! The right combination of ergonomic office accessories will help you maximize your functionality and effectiveness in the workplace. Products like ergonomic monitor arms, foot rests, and adjustable workstations are all highly recommended my heath care professionals and provide excellent benefits that will no doubt be appreciated by any user.

The helpful ergonomic products available on the market today are simply to long. Try contacting an ergonomic products specialist or physician to help determine what products will work right for you.

Popular Summer Decor Themes for the Office

Summer is about halfway through, but it's not too late to start celebrating! Decorating the office in fun bright colors with crafty ideas is a wonderful way to change things up, and get everyone in the mood to appreciate this short season. For those of you that don't quite know where to start, here are some excellent summer office decor themes that are popular this year!

Hit the Beach



Even if you live too far inland, nothing quite says "summer" like images of sunshine and waves. This summer, deck the halls with relaxing images of surf and sand. There are all sorts of amazing photographers and painters from Australia, Hawaii, California, Florida, and so many other great beach sites. Order some prints (or print them out yourself) frame them, and hang them up next to your affordable office reception furniture for guests to enjoy. If the beach isn't really your thing, images of kayakers and whitewater rafters are just as summery. Everyone will appreciate the new change of scenery, and the view will never disappoint!

Cool Off the Cubicle




Most modern workplaces allow employees to deck out their cubicles with images of family, friends, pets, and places they want to visit. Why not turn your office space into one you'll never want to leave? Extreme cubicle decor is a trend that's been picking up lots of momentum in recent years, and we couldn't be happier. This summer, try going with a beach house or tiki theme for the modern office cubicles in your workplace.  Dress up the desk for summer with a small glass box filled with sand, coral, and seashells for you to landscape on break, (conch shells make great paperweights). Many contemporary workplaces even allow small bowl fish at the desks!
When you get back from spending some vacation days, update the family photos in your cubicle to reflect your summer trip. Photos of beaches, boats, lakes, and whitewater scream summer, so be sure to switch up your wall art and screensaver. Just don't stare at them too long or you may find yourself looking for the bathroom...

Get Crafty with Craft Paper


Craft paper may sound like a child's decorating material, but most parents won't hesitate to dress up professional desks and workstations with scribbled drawings and cutouts from the kids at camp. In fact, many adults are often surprised at how fun craft paper decorating is to do themselves! See if you can challenge your coworkers to a friendly decorating competition so you don't feel like a loner, and let the fun begin! Cutout clouds, suns, shades, and waves make excellent summer decor. Get crafty with glue and scissors to make a beach towel mousepad or sunhat for your computer to get the edge on your coworkers. The activity sounds silly, but it's a fun way to build memories that will last the colder seasons to come.

Summer Scents



Just like cinnamon spice is a requirement of fall decor, so are summer smells! Don't be afraid to pick out some fun scented candles for your cubicle and workplace the next time you're at the dollar store. Fruity smells like cucumber, coconut, summer apple, peach, citrus, and strawberry are fresh scents that just about everyone enjoys. For something that's less likely to make you hungry, go for ocean breeze, fresh linen, sunshine, or rain to get a good whiff of summer at the office. If your workplace doesn't allow scented candles around cool office computer desks, scented sprays, plants, and plugins work just as well. Summer's almost over. Don't forget to stop and smell the roses!

Be You


Decor is a funny thing that says a lot about who you are. This summer, don't be afraid to decorate with materials and creative things that you like. Sure, coral, sand, and seashells definitely speak of summer, but for those that hate the beach, bright colors, fun vases, plants, and creative trinkets can be just as festive. Head to the local decorating store and pick out some art that speaks to you. Because of the clear, fresh look, glass always makes a wonderful decorating material. Blue tinted glass computer desks look just as fresh in summer as they look frigid in wintertime, making them perfect for year round decorating.
