It is well known that office lighting can have a big impact on our health. Good office lighting boosts our mood and enhances our energy levels and productivity. But, get it wrong and the lighting can sap our energy and cause headaches and eye strain. With many of us now working from home, it is just as important to ensure we have good lighting in any work spaces at home too. Whether you have a dedicated home office or study or a workstation in the corner of your living room you will want to create a comfortable, personal space that is in keeping with the rest of the home.
Overhead lighting is a good place to start but it should not be the only source of light in a home office or work space. As with other rooms layering the light by using a combination of different light fittings is the best option. Desk lamps, wall lights, spotlights, ceiling lights, downlights and floor lamps can all be incorporated into a well planned lighting scheme for a home office or study. Spotlights that can be angled and recessed downlights with a tilt function are good examples of ceiling lights for work spaces as they can be adjusted and angled depending on the time of day. Add a dimmer switch and you will have even more control.
Nothing beats a classic desk lamp in a traditional home study or office. Bankers lamps and desk lights that have flexible or adjustable arms are ideal as the angle and height can be adjusted. There are any number of desk lights to choose from so pick one in a colour and style that suits your situation. If you are short of space a smart angled wall light or a clip on shelf light will give you the task lighting you need whilst freeing up valuable desk space.
It can take some time to figure out what lighting will work best in your home office or study as not everyone's preferences are the same. Don't get too worried as you can easily adapt your lighting plan by removing the odd lamp or changing the bulbs to give a different light level or colour temperature. And don't forget that our friendly and knowledgeable staff are only a phone call or email away if you need any help.
