Small bedroom...I made the closet my desk with 2 file cabinets and a butcher block top. I actually purposely do not have a comfortable chair and sit on an inflatable wobble cushion on a modern wood chair. (An actual exercise ball was a bit much). When not working, can close the doors and desk and chair are out of sight. The room also includes Peloton bike and room for yoga.

I feel like furniture manufacturers don’t understand the necessity of a wide-enough desk.

Invest in a nice chair, the rest is whatever. There's a reason even cheap companies buy their office workers $500+ chairs

I bought a Husky adjustable workbench from Home Depot for $230. Pulled off the plastic logo and boom, instant sit/stand desk on a budget. Also supports 500+lbs, fwiw. Dual 27” LG low-profile bezel monitors, cords that serve as a dock (for both personal and work laptops), and a nice desk chair. Personal preference plays a big role, but lots of good suggestions here

Did the same thing - husky + 2 27’s. Bar stool for sitting and perfect height for standing

I had a dedicated bedroom for many years, but when my wife went back to work she took that over for her WFH job.

I’ve been relegated to the basement, and I have a standing desk with a pad to stand in and a standing desk compatible chair. Large screens, full size ergonomic keyboard and mouse. Much better setup than when I travel.

We renovated our house and made a new master suite, so the old master suite (simple bedroom and bathroom) became my office. Was really nice to be able to go to the bathroom without running into the kids who would want to play.

But now I travel less and don't need a home office.

Same as at client or hotel. Any table/chair. Travel laptop, cell, Bluetooth speakerphone. Wireless printer/scanner. Yes live in NYC.

A bit untraditional, but I use a large Ikea dining room table because I like to spread everything out. Have a monitor on the left hand side and sit facing my TV so that I can watch something mindless on the right.
