How to set up the ideal WFH space in your condo

After a sudden shift to digital processes, employees from big companies and even small corporations are most likely to stay working from home even after the pandemic. 

The COVID-19 has made WFH an unplanned requirement for businesses to stay afloat and continue their operations despite the circumstances. Even after this pandemic recedes, many employees will have already discovered that they don’t need to be in the office everyday to perform their duties optimally. 

In this case, setting up a home office for long-term use, which allows us to be productive at work and reduces repetitive strain injuries, is a crucial feat that we must accomplish.

Spruce up your work-from-home space by curating items that fit the size of your condo! Here are some tips on how to make your area more conducive to your productivity level while working from home:

Opt for ergonomic desk and chair

The ideal size of a work desk is 29 inches from the floor to the top of the table surface. This differs depending on your height; if you’re taller, you can opt for a higher table, while if you’re shorter, you can do better with a lower desk.

To solve a problem related to the height of your desk, you can buy an adjustable table that might be perfect if you want to stand up for a few minutes or hours while working. 

Ergonomists, professionals who ensure that the design and quality of systems, equipment, and facilities provide the best level of efficiency, comfort, health, and safety for anyone using them, are all about adjusting your table according to the proper alignment of your wrists, neck, and shoulders. This prevents discomfort and long-term injuries after repetitive lousy positioning.

Same thing with your work chair. It’s better to opt for an ergonomic chair designed to give you comfort while sitting hours in front of your computer.

Consider the height of your monitor

In relation to ergonomics, it might be crucial to get the ideal monitor that works best for you. The most important thing to note is that it has to be on your eye level. 

If you’re using a laptop, consider getting a laptop riser to help you achieve the perfect level. It’s also advisable to get a separate keyboard to help with your wrists and posture. On the other hand, if you’re using a regular monitor, you can adjust the height to keep it at eye level.

Get a waterproof desk mat and a coaster for drinks

This does not only give your space a makeover, but it prevents your table from getting scratches, dirt, and splashes of coffee or water. 

There are tons of options on the internet and online shops; all you have to do is select the ones with the best quality, waterproof, anti-slip, and big enough to cover your desk.

Go wireless

To avoid a clump of wires from accumulating on your desk, it’s best to use a wireless keyboard and mouse. This helps achieve a clutter and distraction-free workspace by removing unnecessary wires from taking up some space on your table. 

Aside from this, you also have to consider the size of your keyboard as it can affect your typing speed and efficiency if your job entails you to do this most of the time. There are plenty of affordable yet quality wireless keyboard & mouse combos on the market. You just have to make sure that the feels, size, and price point hit the right spot.

Add dividers

Separate your working area from the rest of your condo space by adding dividers. This helps create a separation between your personal and workspace, allowing you to enjoy the work-life balance even while working from home.

Cast up wall-mounted furniture and shelves

Instead of getting furniture that will only take up space in your condo, opt for wall-mounted ones like shelves where you can put your essentials on. 

Add potted plants

Give life to your working space by adding potted plants and greens. This creates a fresh and relaxing ambiance that allows you to relax while working.

While setting up your WFH space in a condo can be confusing and overwhelming for first-timers, you have an advantage if your unit is spacious enough to accommodate your workspace. Empire East does this best with its array of spacious suites, perfect for those working from home who want to set up their workstation in their unit.

Stormbreaker, The Aftermath: What Went Down at Empire East’s 25th Anniversary Concert

Empire East commemorates its 25th anniversary on July 15, 2019, at Xylo at the Palace through bottomless hurrahs (and drinks!), headbangs, chants and sing-alongs. Urbandub and KZ Tandingan made everyone swoon as they join the party and perform their hit singles. The management and employees, and everyone who were present at the event sang their hearts out and danced along to the beat as they indulge themselves in the party atmosphere.

There is no better way to end a hyped-up celebration than to recollect remarkable memories! Just when you thought that a party can’t get more stellar, Empire East jots down the most notable memoirs from the jubilee.

Curious on what went down at the Stormbreaker Anniversary concert?


Loud chants and glares

What do you expect from an EDM party? Loud music and blinding lights line up for the “musts.” Employees were welcomed by the sound of pop music as the facade of photos from the past two decades playing on the gigantic screen. Xylo echoed with waves of laughter as they watch and reminisce the tales that are unheard of behind every remarkable photo.


What A Feast!

Employees ramp from the bar’s entrance to their tables as they delight themselves with the static sound of EDM. What happened next was a full night of buffet at the bar counter. A vegetable salad with a mouthwatering dressing, soup for the appetizer, pork belly for the main dish, creamy pasta as a tweaker, and mini-cakes for dessert– what a tremendous pre-concert treat!


Bashed out with Urbandub and KZ Tandingan!

As authentic as their band name sounds, Urbandub never fails to make a lasting impression whenever they set their feet on stage. They owned the crowd as they sang their hit songs and made the employees feel the nostalgia from the alternative rock era; they warmed-up the celebration as they beguile the audience for almost 30 minutes of the classic Urbandub playlist.

KZ Tandingan rocked the house down with her unwavering charisma and talent. She performed some of her latest hits including her rendition of Two Less Lonely People in the World, Huling El Bimbo, Pare Ko, and her award-winning piece, Rolling in the Deep. 45 minutes have never felt more fun!


Departments’ Show-off

Blazing colors and sparkles emerge from the venue as employees flaunt their colorful attires. Representatives from each department showed off their best dance moves and grooved to different music that is related to the music era they represent. Lucky ones who were randomly selected also got the chance to perform and boast their hidden singing skills as they did a duet with the one and only Soul Supreme, KZ Tandingan.


Charlie’s Notable Speech

Every company event won’t be complete without the President’s heartfelt notes. Empire East President and CEO, Atty. Anthony Charlemagne C. Yu delivered his anniversary message celebrating all the employees’ contribution to the company. The party halted for a while; employees lent their ears and looked back to what happened over the past 25 years.


Fireworks and… more sparklers!

Company’s department heads lined up with Atty. Yu for a celebratory photo holding their own sparklers which were lit up to the beat of Katy Perry’s ‘Fireworks.’ The venue was pounded with applause and cheers– a celebratory sound of 25 tough but successful years.


The Stormbreaker was indeed a blast. This year’s bash was not just an ordinary party, but a celebration of 25 years of Empire East’s commitment to providing Filipinos with quality homes and building more sustainable and unparalleled communities. Truly, the storm that blew Empire East for 25 blustering years brewed the company to what it is today– conquerors, Stormbreakers.




“That is why we call ourselves Stormbreakers. We realize that there will always be good and bad seasons, but for as long as we tighten our grip and our faith from within; we will not easily be blown away.” -Atty. Charlemagne C. Yu, President & CEO, Empire East
