How to build a home office set up on a £100 budget

Working from home if you haven’t done so before can be an exciting new venture and a new work environment can spark some great ideas. But if you don’t quite have the right set up, working from your dining room table or off your ironing board can make being comfortable while you work a challenge.

If you’re looking for how to set up a home office on a budget, we’re going to go through a few options that will suit your needs and have you set up and ready to work comfortably.


The main part of your new home office is the desk you choose to work from. The desk should be at a good height and be somewhere in your home that has good lighting.

First off we have this simple white folding desk from Argos for just £40. This desk is compact and foldable meaning you’ll save space whilst having a functional desk to work from. This particular desk is made from MDF which can easily break but also comes with a 1-year guarantee.

There are many desk options available but this is by far one of the cheapest and most practical options available today.


Your chair is arguably the most important element of your home office set up. You want to ensure that your back is supported and that you can achieve a proper seated position with your feet flat on the ground. The way you sit at your desk for 8+ hours a day can have a huge impact on your productivity as well as your physical wellbeing.

This chair for just £65 from Argos again, provides both support and comfort and is perfect for small spaces. It also has a tilt and swivel mechanism with gas lift adjustable seat height. Made from a metal frame will mean this chair lasts longer and also comes with a 1-year guarantee.


Once you have the main items for your home office, there may be some accessories that you’d like just to make your setup perfect for you. Such as wrist support, desk pad or even a foot hammock. All of these items can be found online and aren’t too expensive either.

If you’re looking to try and save a bit more money on your purchases you can use Chrome Extensions such as Honey or look at discount sites such as Hot Deals UK to monitor any deals to be had.
