The Best Printers for Home Use

We spend more time in our homes now than we ever have, and many of us now work remotely. With the rise of remote working, your home office needs to function like a traditional one. That means a printer is essential. But which is the best printer for home use? There are so many printers available and a number of factors to consider when choosing one. We’re here to make the process easy for you. At Ryman, we have the best home printers to suit your needs. Let’s get started finding the right one for you!

Where to Put Your Printer in Your Home Office

Printers are a home office essential, but they can be quite bulky. You need to be smart with your storage and placement of your printer, or it will get in the way while you’re working. If you have the space, we recommend storing your printer in a filing cabinet. It’ll be completely out of the way and won’t stand out too much against your home office decor. Alternatively, slot it into a space on your bookshelf. Strategically placing your printer on a bookshelf will allow it to blend in with your decor more naturally. It will also be easily accessible when you need it. Storing it this way is ideal for those who will be printing regularly. Utilising desk storage is also an option. Many desks have storage built in, which is the perfect home for your printer. This method of storage is great if you have a small home office.

Which Home Printer is Right for Me?

Now you know where you’re going to store your printer, you need to choose one! There are so many different options, it can be difficult to choose. Don’t jump straight in and buy the first one you see though. It’s important to take into consideration how much you will use the printer, what you will be printing, how much space you have, and your budget. Luckily for you, we’ve handpicked our favourites and categorised them, so all the hard work has been done for you!

Designed to be more economical, this printer can help you save up to 90% on printing costs. Ideal for frequent and professional printing.

Laser printers are perfect for printing in high volumes, and doing it quickly. No need to panic over last-minute printing!

A great mid-range laser printer is the HP Laser 135w (£134.00). This is a basic mono laser printer that prints at speeds of 15-20 pages per minute. Wireless printing is also available to reduce the need for wires cluttering up your home office. The HP Laser 135w can print, scan and copy documents and provide high quality results.

A3 Printer for Home Use

A3 printing is especially useful for designers and photographers. Being able to showcase work on a larger scale can highlight details that may have been overlooked if it were shown on A4.

Our recommendation for an A3 printer is the Epson EcoTank ET15000 (£599.99). This A3 printer is compact, despite the size of the paper it can carry. So it won’t take up too much space in your home office. The Epson EcoTank prints in colour and can print A4 paper, there won’t be any need to have two separate printers for A3 and A4 paper. This is a great printer to invest in due to the low printing costs. Economical, and mess-free, refills are available so you can save yourself some money while doing your bit for the environment. The Epson EcoTank comes with a wide range of features, such as WiFi printing and mobile printing apps. This printer is perfect for those who need large, high-quality prints and want to invest in a printer that will last.

There are many factors to consider when choosing a printer for your home. If none of these printers caught your eye, we have many more for you to choose from on our website. Make sure you pick up paper too!
