We are slightly over two weeks into the circuit breaker period, and if you haven’t found the time to spruce up the home office with some simple accessories, now might be the time. Not only have the measures been extended until the start of June, we’ve compiled some tips and tricks to make your days at home a little better amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Establishing a routine, and following it, can help you to feel a greater sense of normality. That ranges from changing out of your sleepwear, getting in a morning run or making a cup of your favourite beverage every morning. Your work-from-home environment therefore shouldn’t be your bed: a proper desk and chair will make for a conducive working environment. It’ll also ensure you don’t leave the circuit breaker period with niggling aches in your back and neck.

A few simple adjustments can transform the standard home office into a cosy workspace that you won’t be loath to step into. Draw the curtains and let in natural light as they’ll reduce the strain on your eyes – and make sure the temperature is to your liking, particularly in Singapore’s tropical climate.

Here are our tips and pick of the best accessories to make the home office just a little cosier so that you won’t be in a rush to leave right after the coronavirus period.
