Home offices these days are used for computer gaming nearly as much as they are used for work. In both of these situations there is little ambient light required, but you still want to optimize your lighting to reduce glare and eye strain. If you’re working or playing on the computer, you’re looking directly at a light source (the monitor) which can cause eye strain if there is not adequate ambient light.
The best light bulbs for home offices include compact fluorescent light bulbs and LED light bulbs. These energy efficient options replace old inefficient incandescent light bulbs in nearly all aspects; way better energy efficiency, higher quality light, and more color temperature options. It’s great being able to customize your home office with your preferred color temperature lighting; synergy between that and the light from monitors can make for a very pleasant experience.
Achieving the best lighting for your home office requires the right light fixture choices. There’s no need for static ceiling fixtures; moveable floor lamps and adjustable desk lamps are optimal solutions for home office lighting. A compact fluorescent in the floor lamp for ambient light is a good idea, while you can try LED light bulbs for direct lighting with the adjustable desk lamp. LED light bulbs are significantly more expensive than compact fluorescents, so you’ll want a smaller wattage which would replace a 40 watt incandescent.
With these options you can’t go wrong with home office lighting. Compact fluorescent light bulbs and LED light bulbs are perfect solutions for lighting your office. Customize the color tone of the light to your tastes and enjoy freedom from eye strain. It’s not always enjoyable to work, so it’s nice to be able to have a pleasant environment in which to work.
