Home Office Lighting for Better Health, Mood, and Productivity

Home Office Lighting for Better Health, Mood, and Productivity

Aside from standing desks, having adequate lighting for your workspace is among the most important factors in maintaining health and safety. Reading and working on your computer for prolonged periods in the dark may lead to eye strain, drowsiness, and lower work motivation. Choosing the best home office light fixtures to suit your workspace needs will introduce proper lighting to help keep you awake, reduce eye strain, and improve your mood! In this article, we will cover the importance of having quality lighting in an office and take a look at the different features of our home office lighting solutions.


Why is it important to have good lighting in your workspace?

Workspace lighting


Enhance your workspace lighting with our range of home office lighting solutions! 

Eye strain and headaches tend to happen when squinting our eyes to adjust between significantly different lighting levels, such as when we alternate between viewing a room and our screen. This eventually leads to discomfort, fatigue, and a lower motivation to continue working. In cases where your workspace lighting is too dim, you may trigger your body’s internal clock to experience drowsiness earlier in the day. Proper workspace lighting helps to avoid these issues and is important for improving our concentration span, keeping us awake, and boosting our mood to promote productivity. By introducing a properly balanced level of lighting in our workspace, desk lamps help reduce eye fatigue and assist our body’s internal clock to be alert during the day.


What is the best lighting for a workspace?

Office lighting


The quality and intensity of your office lighting may work for you; however, it may not be the ideal setting for everyone else. Since everybody has different eyes, preferences, and health conditions, the best workspace lighting will depend on the individual, their age, mood, and the time of day. Usually, it is best to have a combination of direct and indirect lighting with the option to adjust brightness and color for individual office lighting.

Having a light source from a lamp pointed downwards or at an angle that allows light to fall onto your work surface is considered direct lighting. This lighting is best for areas of a workspace that you will spend the most time focused on such as with your monitors, phones, keyboard, and books. The illumination from sources such as large ceiling lights for lighting the general area of a spacious room is considered indirect lighting. This lighting is best for areas you will not spend as much time focused on but will still need to be able to see clearly. Combining both direct and indirect lighting helps reduce eye strain, maximize productivity, and excels at being energy efficient.
