The workplace is an area where you will spend a lot of your time during the week, so it is an environment that you must be sure to design in a way which is suitable for the task and comfortable to spend extended periods within. Bringing the right style of light into your office is an important step in producing an area that will maximise productivity whilst also ensuring that you feel comfortable and unrestricted in the process. There are many different light fittings to consider for the workplace, so this article looks to give you a few helpful pointers to guide you towards a truly wonderful working environment!
Which styles of lighting are best suited to the workplace
Now, the area that you work in tends to be very interchangeable, so it is unlikely that you’ll be able to make any major changes such as tearing out the ceiling lights and having your own choice of fitting installed. This means you’ll need to look towards a more portable, plug in style of light as opposed to a hard wired fitting, but this won’t limit your options at all, with a huge range available. Desk lamps are an excellent way to give a focused and direct style of light to a localised area, giving you a clearer view that will help you to concentrate on the task at hand. You can also utilise floor lamps for a wider spread, but less focused style of light, creating a more comforting and pleasant atmosphere within your office or workspace.

Extra lighting tips
One of the main things to keep in mind is that you need to create a lighting theme that makes you feel comfortable which will also provide a useful and practical form of illumination to help you to complete tasks and activities in a more efficient and productive manner. To bring a little bit of a natural theme to your office, try facing your desk towards a window as this will help to make the room feel much bigger and less confined. This allows for more creativity and imagination, leading to a more inspired period of work. The colour temperature of the lights is also an important factor to consider, as you will need a cool glow for brighter and clearer shine in your task lighting, however a softer and more soothing glow is better suited to your ambient accent lighting.
