Lighting is one of the most important factors that determine whether our work will be carried out efficiently enough. In too dark a room, not only do we not see well, but we also get tired faster. Wrongly directed light can cause your eyes to lose their focus, even if it is bright enough.
Why is lighting important at work?
Proper lighting of space is a very important and often overlooked aspect of any everyday room or working environment. Task lighting provides the right amount of light exactly where it's needed. It is an undispersive beam of light directed at the surface and therefore focuses on the area where we need to see more for precision. We should have them in place where we read, write, work, use a computer, do handicrafts, cook, apply make-up, shave, etc. We should also have them in place where we read, write, work, use a computer, do handicrafts, cook, apply make-up, shave, etc. Using the same amount of light throughout the room or working environment is not efficient because the light is diffused in all directions. A good desk lamp is particularly important in a modern work environment or home office, because watching a computer monitor requires much less light than reading and writing - that's why we need light directed in the right direction. During work such as transcribing from cards to a computer, the general lighting can be reduced to a level that is suitable for viewing the monitor. The work surfaces can then be supplemented with task lighting to make reading a document comfortable.
How do I choose a work light?
Desk lamps often come in a variety of styles and finishes, the appearance is a matter of personal preference and matching the decor of the room. If you have a house with a modern design, you will need a desk lamp in a minimalist or industrial climate. If you have cabinets and drawers in a classic style, it is worth taking care of the lamps underneath them - the decorative brass frame, etc. If you use the lamp in space for other activities, such as watching TV, you may need lighting with reduced intensity and possibly more focus. A lamp with a shade of about 30 degrees will direct the light to the surface you want to illuminate, but will not emit any diffuse light in order not to affect other activities in the room. LED desk lights are directional and are usually best suited to suit your preferences.
