Layered Lighting for Flexibility

For a functional Home Office during the day and night we recommend Layered lighting. The approach entails using various light sources to construct an environment both balanced and flexible. 
Begin with Ambient Lighting that will uniformly light up the entire room. You could then use a combination of Task Lighting for your work space. Also you want to ensure that when your sitting at your desk that you have bright lights without causing glare on your screen. Lastly, add Accent Lighting that will highlight the detail in your decor and will create a cosy and relaxing atmosphere during breaks.

 Avoid Screen Glare

If there is light hitting your screen, it can reflect and cause a Glare. Position the desk in order to avoid having your back to a window. You can also use an adjustable Laptop or Computer stand to adjust your screen away from the glare.

Dark Shadows 

Avoid sitting in an area with Dark Shadows which can cause eye strain. You can use Desk Lamps to avoid Shadows by selecting the correct angle to direct the light or illuminate your space with Natural Light.


Energy Efficiency Lighting

With the advent of the ‘Green’ World, Energy-Saving Lighting becomes crucial. Especially as energy bills are sky rocketing, we recommend opting in for LED Lighting for Home Offices.
 Firstly, LED Bulbs have a longer lifespan which means that they don’t need to be replaced frequently. Also, they consume very little Energy. 
Sustainability is not only a trend; it is a commitment towards a greener future.
