Having essential office supplies, like a computer, are not sufficient enough to make your office a functional one.
They might be the major requirements for an office but without other small additional things, they cannot give you a smooth workflow.
There are some other minor things and accessories that you will need to help you in your everyday work. Some of these will include;
To complete a desk setup, you will need a reading lamp.
The type of lighting shall depend on your preferences. You should look for something that looks good and comfortable for the eye.

Sticky notes are also a must-have for any office.
If you want to quickly write something that you might otherwise forget, you will need a sticky note.
Sticky notes have also been the traditional way of setting reminders not to run off schedule or forget someones’ important day.
