How has your home office experience treated you during the past year? If the TechRadar team has learned anything from the home working experience, it's that having the right combination of desk, chair, and laptop makes all the difference in the world. Being comfortable with your surroundings helps to emulate the office experience – and it sure beats trying to work from your kitchen counter on a stool.
With the Prime Day deals (opens in new tab) for 2021 wrapping up in just a few hours, below we've collected a few of the best office-related sales for our US readers, covering areas like office furniture, and throwing in a selection of our favorite laptop deals to boot.
Note that anything covered specifically by the Prime Day sale will require a Prime membership – so keep that in mind before you buy.

LG 34WK650-W 34-inch monitor:
$399 $284.99 at Amazon
(opens in new tab)Save $115 - LG's range of ultrawide monitors typically fetch a hefty sum, as that $399 MSRP attests to. However, Amazon has returned to a fantastic $284.99 price tag today, saving you $115 overall. We've only seen this price a few times so far this year, and the fact that you'd usually find a 27-inch display with these specs at that cost makes this an excellent offer.
Keurig K-Slim Coffee Maker:
$109.99 $49.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $60 - Making coffee at home these days? This is a brilliant Amazon Prime Day deal, cutting the price of the highly-rated single-serve Keurig K-Slim coffee maker by a best-ever 55%. It brews four cups before it needs refilling, and at less than five inches wide, it's great for smaller kitchens. You can buy it on its own, or with 40 pods for $64.99 (opens in new tab).
As we're sure you know by now, Prime Day ends at midnight PDT – that means you only really have a few hours left to take advantage of any deals you might like, including many of those above.
As you scope out how your next few months of working from home will play out, making an adjustment to your office setup could be meaningful.
Hopefully, your employer is giving you the option for a more flexible future. Working from home isn't for everyone – not all of us have the space for a bespoke office, and miss the human company – but for many people, the time retrieved from avoiding the commute is vital.
That's why the occasional office upgrade can make a world of difference to the same space you have to sit in every single day, even if it's just having access to slightly nicer coffee. It's like replacing a mattress or a sofa, in a lot of ways – not necessarily the most exciting upgrade, but one that makes an incremental difference to your everyday life.
