Lighting is very important in a home office, and often includes ceiling spots which need to be positioned carefully and in advance. Avoid shadows. Put dimmers on everything for greater control.

On the other hand, window glare needs to be controlled, especially for folks as they get a little older. Shades need transmission of less than 3% to avoid glare, even less may be needed in some cases. Automated is useful for quickly controlling glare without interrupting your train of thought.

Printers are often wireless now, allowing greater flexibility of arrangement.

When planning home office space, plan for extra numbers of electrical outlets and have a electrician confirm that they will not become overloaded.

When planning for a large desk in an upstairs or attic home office, make sure ahead of time you can move the large item up or down stairs, around corners, and through doors.
