If you work from home, or spend a good amount of time in your home office, it’s important that the space is adequately lit. Depending on the size of the room, you’ll want to be sure that you have both general and task lighting that is appropriate. Hacienda Lighting in Scottsdale can help you find the ideal fixtures for your home office, and ensure that you’re not straining your eyes while writing, reading, or working on your computer.
For general lighting, you’ll want a fixture that illuminates the room, but doesn’t create harsh glare or contrast over your workspace. A pendant or ceiling fan with a light in the middle of the room can make a statement, as well as provide adequate light. High color rendering fixtures are the best choice, and you’ll want to be sure the light comes over your shoulder onto the desk, instead of being right above it. If you have a television mounted in the room for those occasional work breaks, it can be a good idea to find a fixture that can be on while you watch, but won’t create a bright reflection in the screen.
When you want to update your task lighting, directional table lamps are the best choice, since you can point them where you need them most, such as at your keyboard while typing. If you have a favorite chair in your office where you love to sit and read, a hanging or floor lamp will keep your eyes from getting tired.
