This way, it won’t matter whether you’re looking for the best printer for home use – be it primarily for a business or personal capacity – as you’ll be able to identify exactly the style of printer you need.

Inkjet printers

Whether it’s for home or office use, an inkjet printer can be a huge help, especially when it comes to printing images. Offering high-image-quality alongside extremely quick printing speeds, the best inkjet printers will have your documents with you in seconds rather than minutes, no matter what you need to print. You’ll also find these in business and home variants, which offer a mixture of A4 and A3 printing, and come in sleek and stylish designs that ensure they fit into any room with ease, including smaller office spaces.

Laser printers

When it comes to these models, you have the option of colour laser printers or mono-only laser printers. Colour is obviously a more universal option, but depending on what you’ll use it for, you might find that you don’t need any more than mono printing. Both come in print only and all-in-one designs, that latter of which is ideal if you work from home and need to hand documents back and forth often. Meanwhile, the colour option rivals the inkjet for quality when printing photographs, due to the sharpness of the end result, while mono printers only print in black, and could be helpful if you're only printing Word documents and other copy.

Wireless printers

Almost all printers will need to be plugged into the wall to ensure they have power, but we don’t always store or set up our printers in the same location we print from. Even though many of our printers are small and compact, they’re designed to fit even the snuggest home offices, it’s nice to have options. In this case a printer that has wireless capability is something worth looking out for. These are quick and convenient and mean you can print from anywhere in your home, so there’ll be no need to sit at your desk or next to a printer all day long. Ultimately, the best wireless printer will depend on your primary usage; as inkjet, mono and colour laser printers can all be bought with wireless capability.

Running on wireless, you’ll find mobile printers in various sizes with varying capabilities.

All-in-one printers

If you work from home often enough, you’ve probably been scouting for the best home office printer. But printing probably isn’t the only capability you’ll need. More often than not, you’ll find that you’ll need a scanner. And while a printer scanner would make sense here, you could get even more from your investment by looking at an all-in-one printer. Coming in both laser and mono printer models, these have a whole range of functions; printing from 18 – 50 pages per minute, paper storage drawers, scanning and fax capability. They pack the whole office experience into one small, compact device.
