More than us than ever before are regularly working from home. Whether you've carved out a nook in an open-plan space, a corner of a bedroom or have a dedicated room, home office lighting ideas are incredibly important.
Invest in a classic desk light
Task lighting is crucial in ensuring that the space functions efficiently day and night and from season to season. Home office desk ideas would also not be complete without a desk lamp, and this is a great opportunity to add a design classic or a pop of colour. Make sure you choose an adjustable design so you're receiving effective task lighting for whatever you're working on.
Include a statement floor light
Floor lamps are probably most often associated with bedroom and living room ideas, but they can be a useful addition to your home office lighting ideas, too.
Choose a version that's tall enough to provide overhead lighting, ideally with a movable head so you can adjust when needed. You may need to supplement with LED shelving lighting to ensure you're not working in your own shadow.
Double up with a stylish metal reading lamp
A metal reading lamp is a versatile and stylish choice for any home office. It provides focused light that helps you stay productive and comfortable, and with its modern finish, it adds a touch of style to your workspace. By combining a reading lamp with other lighting options, you can create a layered effect that adds depth and dimension to your space. With the right lighting setup, you can create a workspace that is both functional and inviting, helping you stay focused and productive all day long.
Choose a simple ceiling light
For a simple but on-trend look, opt for a bare bulb with a decorative flex – it will provide great illumination, but won't distract like a fancy shade. As well as working beautifully for more minimalist spaces, it's a great space saver.
Use lighting to add colour
We'd never recommend going too crazy with colour in a home office. You want to create a restful environment where you can focus, rather than give yourself a headache.
That said, a few little accents can go along way, putting you in a bright mood, ready to work. So choose an enlivening shade for your, well, shades, and enjoy the bright boost to your home office lighting ideas.
