Here are a couple of tips on how to set up your remote work from home in Malta. We discussed the internet solutions in Malta, and now it's time for the actual setup. You need to start with two main components: a good combination of desk and chair and access to electronics.

We haven’t come across renting services for either. We’re on the constant lookout, so let us know if you’ve got one!

How to set up a WFH office for a long time in Malta?

Desk and chair πŸͺ‘πŸ—„οΈ

There is no Ikea in Malta, but we marked some local stores. We recommend going for a height-adjustable desk.

Sit/standing desks are much more comfortable as you can regulate them according to your own needs. Better posture leads to fewer chronic problems. Comfort = greater results!

The two stores we list below have both electric height-adjustable desks. We tested both and the height-adjustable desks with levers tend to break more easily.

Electronics πŸ’»πŸ–¨οΈ

Scan, Birkirkara

Scan has a decent selection of electronics where you can get pretty much anything for your setup. We recommend going for known brands when it comes to electronics.

Cheaper options and less-known brands will do the job until they don’t anymore. As a digital nomad, don't ever cheap out on electronics and shoes! πŸ˜‰

iCentre, Sliema

It’s an authorized, official retailer and distributor of Apple products in Malta. As an official reseller gives you certain kinds of guarantees regarding the quality of service and product. It’s not an official Apple Store but in Malta, this is as close as it gets.

You don’t always want to fight for a space at Starbucks, or Costa which often gets crammed with less considerate tourists. Over 80% of people in Malta are unhappy with commuting to work or working from an office1 - coworkable coffee places are becoming real hotspots.

Setting up a home office in Malta is not only a nice-to-have, but it also becomes crucial.
