  • Office Chair Recommendations for Work From Home Setup 
  • The key to having a work-life balance lies not only on the management of your workload, but also in how orderly your workplace is. Given that many of us are forced to do work from home due to the pandemic, it’s important that we pay attention to how we put boundaries between life and work. Furniture, for example, is the best way to make physical attributes to put things in their respective spaces. At Philippine Primer, we understand the needs of this grey area that most people often forget. This month, we are sharing tips and tricks on home renovation that is both easy and practical.

    If you want a comfortable working station…

    The key to improving work efficiency is getting a comfortable work chair with proper height. 

     Invest in a chair that suits your height and weight

    The Philippines follows the American standard chair height of 45 cm. Depending on your height, this could be too tall, resulting in your heels not touching the floor. This may get you tired faster at work though so you should consider the height when purchasing a chair. Otherwise, you can buy an office chair with adjustable height.


    Choose a quiet place for work 

    Create a working space that will you help you focus and work efficiently

    Ambient sounds matter more than your background in a workstation. Many people feel anxious about their rooms being shown in the background when attending online meetings. However, if if you are not required to turn your webcam on, rather, focus on getting rid of unnecessary background noise. It will surely distract you if you hear them during meetings. If you don’t have a noise-canceling microphone, work in a quiet place or somewhere where there are few people around if possible.

    Primer staff workplace makeover!

    Like many others, Primer’s staff suddenly had to start working from home without any kind of preparation last March 2020, and had no choice but to work with a temporary set up in their bedroom. After working like this for a year, Primer staff finally decided to improve their work space. It seems working from home will continue for a while. The Primer staff has decided to organize the workstation in his house and buy a desk. Let’s see how things have changed.


    A temporary desk made by covering a square table with a table cloth. Random stuff can be found around the MacBook. Primer magazines, deodorants, ballpen, mugs, etc. are scattered all over the desk, which is placed by the window for better lighting during Zoom meetings.


    Primer staff purchased an assemblable desk for P1,400 on Lazada, an online shopping app. It has enough width, yet the depth is shallow so it fits perfectly in the space allocated for it in the room. The work station is quite large: with shelves and drawers for storage. The staff decorated it with a photo frame and plants to create a relaxing atmosphere.

    We asked Mr. Terada to rate it! Mr. Terada’s rating:

    Since there is a cabinet on the side, at first glance it felt like the desk itself was small. Cabinets with top and bottom shelves are highly recommended because they provide extra storage space.
