Sometimes, mess gets into your mind. The key to a tidy desk is to introduce plenty of storage options to keep your belongings organised and safely contained. The less you keep on your desk, the more space you have to achieve a comfortable position for your mouse and keyboard.

Here are some cool desk accessories to help keep your surface reassuringly clear and spacious.

1. Addit Bento® Ergonomic Toolbox

This storage-box-slash-laptop-stand keeps your work supplies organised and doubles as an adjustable stand for your favourite devices and books. The neatly compartmentalised silicon interior is inspired by traditional Japanese lunchboxes, so you'll find space for everything from the smallest staple, to your spare charging wires.

2. Box Office Pro

While you work, Box Office Pro functions as a height-adjustable phone, tablet and laptop stand that helps you find a comfortable ergonomic position. When you’re done for the day, pack all of your work things neatly inside the lightweight container so you can enjoy your well-deserved free time without being reminded of work.

3. BESTEK Clamp

The BESTEK Clamp Mount iPad Stand clamps to your desk to elevate your device. This immediately frees up space on your desk and holds your device for you, so you're less at risk of poor posture and resulting musculoskeletal issues.

A beautifully thought-out workspace made up of well-designed office desk accessories can completely transform your workflow. The products we've chosen for this category not only look slick; they've been designed with real people in mind. What do office workers really need to make their daily lives that little bit easier?

4. Opløft Sit-Stand Platform

Opløft is half the weight of most other sit-stand converters, and just an inch thick when flat, making it easier to move around and put away. The gas lift technology means it's effortless to adjust between sitting and standing heights, even with your computer equipment on top. Opløft is a holder of the prestigious Good Design Award, making it a must-have desk accessory for anyone who loves good style and wishes they could be more active while they work.

5. Oripura Laptop Stand

Simple but brilliant, Oripura is a seamless, one-piece design that goes from flat to 3D in one movement, making it easy to transport if you move from place to place. The minimal design encourages airflow to stop your laptop from overheating, and even manages to include built-in cable management. The attractive curved edges and premium build quality make this a win for your workstation.

6. Penclic KB3 Mini Keyboard

Level-up your ergonomics game with a Penclic keyboard. Unlike most keyboards, which are made from plastic, this model is crafted from strong, sleek, lightweight aluminium, making it one of the sturdiest, most durable mini keyboards on the market. Pretty design details like curved-edge keys and the pop of colour catch the eye and make the Penclic KB3 not only functional, but beautiful too.

Office work can, over time, affect your health and wellbeing. It's vital to build healthy habits - such as taking regular breaks, knowing when and how to switch off, and adjusting your environment to suit you. Here are some top ergonomic office accessories to help you restore balance in your life.

10. Targus Commuter Backpack

Keep yourself and your equipment safe on your active commute to work. Designed specifically for outdoor conditions, you'll be able to boost your step count and arrive at work feeling energised and ready to tackle the day. Back padding encourages air circulation so you won’t need to worry about sweat patches when you arrive at the office. Commuting in the dark? The reflective panels will help you stay visible to drivers and cyclists.

11. Oculamp Reading Lamp

Is too much exposure from your blue-light-emitting devices affecting your sleep and wellbeing? Oculamp is designed to keep blue light levels low to preserve your eye health and help you sleep. It lasts for 20 hours on one charge, so you can move it to where it needs to be, without being restricted by cables. Choose from three intensity settings, controlled by a touch-panel display and adjust the angle to find the most comfortable position for you.

12. Aeramax® DX55 Air Purifier

Feeling tired and groggy because your air quality is poor? Transform how you feel while you work with the personal-sized Aeramax® DX55 Air Purifier. The 4-stage purification system has a true HEPA filter with AeraSafe™ antimicrobial treatment, which safely removes 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns, including pollen, ragweed and other allergens, viruses, germs, dust mites, mould spores and cigarette smoke.

Office accessories for better posture

The equipment you use can really help improve your posture so you feel less achy and more energised while you work. Check out these top desk accessory picks for improving your posture.

13. Penguin Ambidextrous Vertical Mouse

The ground-breaking design of the Penguin mouse encourages a neutral arm position to eliminate twisting and put the work into the larger shoulder muscles, to save fatigue and tension. Good arm alignment will prevent you from hunching forwards, helping you to maintain a good upright posture while you work and hopefully reducing the risk of RSI, carpal tunnel and other work-related musculoskeletal disorders.

14. Posturite Lumbar Roll

When sitting for long periods, it’s important that your lower back is adequately supported to reduce the risk of strain and back pain. If you experience lower back pain, the Posturite Lumbar Roll can provide comfortable, padded support. Slot it into the S-shaped inward curve of your lower back for instant relief.

15. BodyPartner Posture Enhancing T-Shirt

Finding it hard to maintain a good posture? This T-shirt is designed to enhance your posture by holding and carefully restricting the body, reminding it of its optimum position and re-educating it accordingly. It aids long-term muscle memory to coach you into better habits - and it also looks great!
