Trends may come and go but one “trend” that’s here to stay is work-from-home life. With people continuing to work remotely (or transition to the lifestyle) there’s been a craze in home office shopping. While there’s been an obvious mad dash to find major essentials like desks and chairs, they’re not the only items you need for your home office. The humble computer keyboard is also important, especially since you probably haven’t given it much thought before. Working eight hours a day, you need something practical and comfortable — and there’s no reason why it can’t be cute, too. We rounded up eight stylish keyboards that check all the boxes to really elevate your WFH space. Who says you have to choose between style and function?

Do you have a stylish keyboard you swear by? We want to hear all about it. Tell us about your favorite finds in the comments below!

What’s not to love about this Logitech keyboard? It has a fun typewriter-inspired design, can be used with computers, tablets, and phones, and adds a fun "pop" to any setup. It's also wireless and equipped with fun customizable emoji keys for a truly unique find. You're in luck if pink is your favorite color, but don't worry if it's not, because it's also available in four other color combos.

Add some glamour to your WFH setup without breaking the bank. This inexpensive compact keyboard provides an elegant gold backdrop for the white keys, but you can also choose a silver version with white keys or a black-on-black option. You don’t have to fuss with cords since it’s wireless, and the compact style won’t take up much space. Plus, if you like to drink coffee, tea, or other beverages while you work, there’s no need to worry about spills, since it's also waterproof.

Gamers will enjoy this keyboard that can be used for work and play — and even if you're looking for something strictly for work, this one fits the bill. It features fully programmable keys and rainbow backlighting, plus low-sound keycaps that allow you to type undisturbed.

Is there really any other choice for Apple devotees than the Apple Magic Keyboard? It's pricey, but honestly worth the price — the sleek, low-profile design looks good on your desk without taking up a lot of space, and it's wireless for ultimate functionality. It can also be used for Windows computers, but take note that not all of the keys are the same.

Color-code your devices with this matching keyboard and mouse set from Amazon. Although the design is compact, the keyboard has a full-size layout, and since it’s wireless there are no messy cords coming from the keyboard or the mouse. And if you hate the sound of loud keys, this keyboard is for you since it’s whisper quiet. In addition to this pretty purple color, it's also available in four other fun colors.

If you love the sleek look of the Apple Magic Keyboard but not the price (we don't blame you!), consider this more budget-friendly option with a similar look. The full-size keyboard is wireless and has a convenient off/on switch to preserve the battery. It can also sync with up to three devices, which means you can use the keyboard with PCs and various Mac devices.

If you’re editing videos or music from home, or you just like to be large and in charge of your audio, the Das Keyboard has dedicated media controls and quick access to play or pause songs and adjust volume. It’s a wired, mechanical keyboard with laser-etched keycaps, designed to make typing quick and easy. And if that’s not enough, there are 2 USB ports in the back, making it convenient to transfer files and connect devices.

Create a vintage vibe in your home office with the Azio Retro Keyboard. The round keycaps look, feel, and actually sound like a classic typewriter, but they’re backlit so you can actually see what you’re typing in dim light. The keyboard is a combination of a genuine walnut wood and a chrome satin finish (hence the higher price). Another cool feature is the ability to adjust the height by simply twisting the feet on the back side.
