Workspace Lighting

1024 683 Noon Lighting

With more and more people working from home, thinking about lighting these workspaces can not only create the ideal working environment, it can also help eliminate headaches and eyestrain which result from poor lighting. Whether lighting a workspace within a corner of a room, or lighting a home office, the most important source of light will remain the same, task lighting.

The key lighting source within any workspace will be task lighting and its vital that there is a correct balance between the room’s general lighting and the task lighting in order to prevent eyestrain.

Task lighting can be provided by a table lamp, or lighting strips fixed to overhead shelves, or by directional lighting which is focused over the work area. If possible, have this task light on separate switches to the other lighting sources within the room, as this will create focus that is solely on the work area when required.

Also, think about overhead lighting sources, too much general lighting can cause a glare on computer screens, for example in rooms with recessed spots directly the workspace, consider turning these off when working and perhaps using a floor lamp for general lighting, combined with task lighting.

Accent lighting is not essential within a home workspace, however, can create atmosphere within a workspace and could be used to highlight certain features, for example bookshelves.
