How Can Task Lighting Help You Study In Style?
It’s that time of year again; school is back! Here at Litecraft, we know that finding the right environment to study in can be difficult. That’s why we’re on a mission to help change that…
Main points to focus on:
- Type of fittings;
- Type of bulb;
- Atmosphere within the room.
Studying. We’ve all been there, so we all know how much of a pain it can be to try and soak up vital information when your environment isn’t right. When it’s not right it’s just too hard to concentrate, and this means your work could suffer as a result. Nobody wants that now, do they! So, here’s Litecraft’s fool proof plan to optimise the effectiveness of your study spaces with beautiful lighting, allowing you to truly study in style!
The kind of fitting that you’re going to want to focus on is task lighting, and lamps are a great way of doing this. This is because:
- They provide effective lighting which is very useful
- Versatility allows them to help in a variety of scenarios
- Stylish look can add a great image to the room
- Smaller size allows them to fit into small tables and desks
- Can be adjusted to suit your current needs
When it comes to finding the optimum level of lighting for a room, one of the most important factors to consider is the style of fitting that you use in the interior. If you are trying to create a setting which is ideal for completing tasks that require a great deal of concentration or attention to deal, such as studying and revising, you must ensure that the lighting is perfect. This means finding the right angle and a fitting that can be adjusted easily to adapt to the different tasks you may need to undertake. For this reason, we suggest that you use task lighting in your study areas, and more specifically, table lamps.
Table lamps such as the Sutai 1 Light Adjustable LED Task Lamp - Black make a brilliant addition to a study space, thanks the simple design, coupled with the immense practicality of the adjustable structure. This adjustable capability means that this piece can easily provide very useful light to your work space for a variety of tasks and activities. However, if you are looking for something with a little bit more style and elegance, this 45x LED Eternity Task Lamp - 4 Watt - Chrome could well be the perfect way to light up your desk. This lamp brings a true sense of class into your interior, and is also incredibly useful too. The swinging arm sits upon a pivot, allowing you to adjust the light to however you feel is best suited to your work at all times.
For a more alternative look, you could look for a feature which provides an intellectual and educational feature to the room, whilst also introducing a pool of light into the interior. A great example of one such fitting is this wonderful Globe Touch Sensitive Table Lamp - Chrome, as it provides a useful resource to the room which can really help to broaden horizons and inspire knowledge whilst also giving light that is useful and effective to the surrounding area.
To find great lighting for use in study spaces, the useful and versatile feel of table lamps really is the perfect route to follow.
The next thing that you’re going to have to think about if you’re genuinely serious about optimising your study spaces using lighting is the bulbs that you use in the fittings around you and whether they are going to aid you whilst trying to focus. The kind of bulb that you will probably be aiming for is one which is bright and has a fairly cool colour as this will help you stay alert and aware. One bulb that you should definitely consider for your studying spaces is the 4 Watt LED B22 Bayonet Cap Diamond Effect Candle Bulb - Clear, as it produces the ideal kind of light needed to focus on your studies whilst also harnessing the instant on and durability that LED technology has to offer. LED bulbs have been found to be up to 90% more energy efficient than your average incandescent bulbs, giving them the ability to make you huge savings on energy bills as they provide excellent lighting to your home.
The third, and final, point that you need to consider when optimising your revision space is the atmosphere within the room itself. The main thing to take into account here is the surrounding, and whether they support a stable learning environment. The best thing to do is ensure that the space is clear and un-clutter whilst also keeping major distractions such as phones and games out of the way. By having a well-lit room with no distractions, it makes the task of knuckling down and getting some work done far easier than you may have previously thought. Another handy tip is to face your desk towards a window or mirror to make the room feel bigger as this will allow you to feel like you have more space and freedom to let your mind flow with ideas in a calming and relaxing fashion. Simplicity is also a great theme to have in these kinds of rooms, and a lamp such as this Maya Desk Lamp - White is perfect for creating this kind of look, courtesy or the smooth and stylish structure which is rather stripped back and simple.
So, there you have it; a few hints and tips to steer you in the right direction with regards to lighting up your study areas. Of course, these rules aren’t set in stone. Everyone is different and there are bound to be little tricks that you have to help you get the best out of your revision time. With that being said however, these tips are a great foundation to build upon and will definitely give you a push down the right path.
Have fun creating your fantastic new study space, and good luck for the forthcoming academic year!
