Moved my home office a few months ago to a slightly larger room in a 100+ year old house. Painful process after 20 years accumulation of stuff™.
Furniture and layout largely the same, traded some bookshelves for cupboards.
Main work space is a 180x80cm desk, with a 22cm shelf across the back, 25cm up.
The one big change I made was power distribution. I (and probably most of us) have lots of things that don't draw much, but still require an outlet.
One "master" distribution board ("tradie" type) running 2 x 4 outlet and 2 x 6 outlet boards. Surge suppressors all over, a couple of kJ rated capacity.
No extra extension leads.
So, off one 240V 10A wall outlet, I have a total of 20 downstream outlets, more than half of them committed:

Server
Monitor for server
2 printers (inkjet, laser)
Weather station
Cordless phone
Internet/phone modem-router
Laptop
External monitor for laptop
Speakers
Desk lamp
4 assorted chargers (in switched outlets)
