In order for you to be successful in your workspace, you need a workspace that was designed with success in mind. Elements like the colors that you paint your walls, the design pieces throughout the space, and the lighting that you choose will all play a part in how well you’re able to focus and work.

If you’re currently looking for the right lighting for your office, keep reading. We’re going to cover a few things that you should consider when deciding on the lighting for your office.

Computer Placement

If you have a computer in your office, one of the first things that you’ll want to do is make a note of where you’ve placed it. Is there a window directly next to you? Behind you? All of this is important for not only your vision while working in your office, but it could affect the efficiency of your computer. If there’s a window directly behind you, there’s a high chance of you dealing with a glare at some point of the day, which could make work pretty challenging.

If you’re not able to place your computer in a way that it can avoid the glare of windows, try to do your best and keep your computer parallel to the windows, this should help minimize the glare and the light that your eyes are taking in.

Avoid Direct Light

Though your workspace or desk may be the highlight of your office, it doesn’t need a literal highlight. Too many people think that they should have a spotlight or direct light that focuses on their workspace, but the reality is that this can also create a glare and make for a harsh light. Creating an ambient light that keeps the space well lit, but isn’t harsh on your eyes will ensure that you’re able to get work done without straining your vision or your mind.

Accent & Decorative Lighting is a Plus

Some of the best-designed offices offer a combination of ambient, accent and decorative lighting in a space. This combination ensures that the room is well lit, but that there is enough light surrounding the workspaces for there to be a good balance of focus without it being too harsh. Aside from this combination being great for a workspace, it can do wonders for a home.

Adding various types of lighting into your office is great for adding character and improving the design element of a space. Finding the ideal combination can be challenging, but not when you have the help of professionals.
