Workplace lighting over desk

The best way to light up your home office

Do you have the right lighting when you work from home, or do you let the kitchen lamp act as workplace lighting? To have the wrong lighting when we work does not only make your eyes tired, it also makes you more tired during the day and you will have a harder time falling asleep at night. When working from home we spend even more time looking at the screen since meetings also take place online. So how should you do?

When you plan and chose your lamps for your workplace at home there are a few things to consider. It is important to have the right light in the right place in order to be able to work well. The right lighting is important to us people, and research shows that the right lighting makes us healthier, happier and more efficient.

A good workplace lighting should have both up and down facing light. The best thing is if you can adjust it yourself, depending on what work you perform. Besides, you often need more light than you realise.

We want to give you some tips on how to best lighten your workplace at home, in order to get the optimal light, regardless if you sit at a desk, kitchen table or in the sofa.

Here are our top five tips!

  • The lamps should be placed correctly. A ceiling armature should be placed directly above the edge of the desk, closest to you, parallel with the desk.
  • A table lamp should light up the workplace evenly. The light should come from the left if you are right handed.
  • Light from windows should not dazzle you or reflect the light.
  • The daylight should come from the side, in order not to dazzle you.
  • The light from the armature should not dazzle or distrurb you.

We also want to give you some tips on great lamps that work well at your workplace. The table lamps Vincent, Cato, Deluxe and Frank 2.0 are perfect on your desk. When it comes to ceiling lamps we have stylish Fold Office and Fold Linear both with unique details and modern technology.

Good luck!
