A room with a door!

Depending on your level of myopia and/or need to spread stuff out, one or more monitor that is also not the laptop screen.

Wireless headphones with a really good microphone. I use a pair of Corsair Void headphones. This way I have control of when or whether my dog gets to join conference calls or not.

Nice to have but not required: standing desk with anti-fatigue mat. You won’t use it as often as you think you will unless you literally cannot sit and never get hurt forcing you to sit.

Having an extra SSD on hand in the event of emergency is a good idea but not something you ever really think about til you need one.

I have bookshelves because I’m old. I don’t have plants because I have cats and dogs.
