How to choose the best Desk Lamp for your workspace?
A desk lamp is an integral part of any workspace set up. A desk feels empty without one, so when it comes to buying the right light, it’s best to know the ins and outs of modern desk lamps so you can choose the right one for you. Placing a lamp on your desk is more than just for show, even if the space in your home office is mostly for the show itself. A desk lamp provides task lighting to illuminate the task at hand. Be it typing away on the keyboard or reading the fine print, you want to be able to see comfortably and clearly. That’s where a desk lamp comes in.
Nevertheless, modern desk lamps can be used for more than one purpose, like acting as another layer in a room’s overall lighting scheme. With the many beautifully designed desk lamps to choose from, the once boring lamp can make quite the bold statement all on its own. As modern desk lamps nowadays are multi-functional, you’ll need to consider what purpose your lamp will be providing.
Desk lamps provide task lighting that will help give you more control over the amount of light and its direction, which is ideal for reading and using a computer. If you’re going to use your desk lamp to serve as your main source of task lighting, here are few things to consider:
Size of Lamp: You need to consider your workspace, taking into account the size of your desk and type of work that takes place there. Oversize desks, like drafting tables where you have a larger area that needs to be illuminated, need taller desk lamps with a longer arm that can reach across the length of your desk. At some point, the best option will be rearranging your desk so your lamp can illuminate your work area fully.
Quantity of Light: Eye strain is not a joke, and the right type of lighting will help combat this. But try as you might, our eyesight ages with us and you’ll need more light as you get older. Older people are also more sensitive to glare, so find a lamp with a more directional beam. An LED light is great for task lighting. It not only consumes less energy and lasts longer, but also LEDs have a direct beam. Ensure to get a lamp that is at least 5-10 watts, which is great for a home office and adult usage.
Position of Light:The position of your desk lamp should above your head with the beam directed away from your eyes. A desk lamp that can be angled and manipulated will give you the flexibility you need to angle and position the light comfortably. You can also add supplementary lights, like wall or clip lights, to help brighten up your workspace too.
Style and Design of Lamp to Suit Your Space: Deciding on the style and design of the lamp will come down to personal preference. And now, you can get the best of both worlds, with stylish task lighting that can match your decor, while functioning as more than just a desk lamp. Check our range, regardless of your décor style, you can find a desk lamp that will suit your space.
