Home Office Lighting 101

With more and more companies moving to a permanent work-from-home situation, it’s no surprise that home offices are becoming a focus. Finding the perfect combination of lighting for your home office can be tricky, but let us help you with breaking down the most important tip for lighting your home office – layering your light sources!

Within your day you probably have many different types of tasks that need to be accomplished. Think of all the things you do in your home office – working on the computer, reading, talking on the phone, video calls, holding meetings, etc. Each of these tasks would benefit from a different style of lighting which all layer together to create the perfect home office! 

When layering your lighting it is important to consider three types of light:

1 – Natural Light 

Natural light (from a window) will serve to energize you throughout the day but it can also cause a lot of glare on computer screens. Natural light can be used in your home office through controlled use. Think of installing blinds or curtains to help manage brightness and glare throughout the day. 

2 – Overhead Lighting

Overhead lighting serves to illuminate a large portion of your room from one single light source. Overhead lighting can be a place to express your style and creativity in your office. It should provide enough light to keep the room bright for working, but not be so overwhelming to cause glare. If you are renovating you may have more ability to select where the overhead electrical box will be placed and can do so to avoid potential glare and shadows. Putting your overhead lighting on a dimmer switch is also a great way to create ambience in your home office.

3 – Task Lighting 

Task lighting is going to be your new best friend in your home office! Think of task lighting like your very own personal assistant helping you to focus and complete tasks with efficiency and less headaches. Task lighting allows you to highlight an area of your room, or desk, to help you stay focused and on task (pun intended). 

Think of all the different tasks you perform in your home office and how you like to perform those tasks. For example, if you like to read documents away from your desk and in that cozy armchair – then a floor lamp for reading is going to be a must! If you do a lot of handwritten note taking or writing at your desk – a table lamp would be a great addition to your work space.

When purchasing your task lighting be sure to include lamps with adjustable arms so that you accommodate a range of setups in your home. Ensuring that your task lighting has dimmable capabilities will also help to ensure that you have options to create a different feel in your office too!

Making a Grand Entrance

Like it or not, first impressions matter. When guests visit your home there are a few key spots to put a little extra love and attention on. Your foyer is one of those places! Lighting for a foyer can be tricky to get right. There are a lot of different perspectives to consider. So let us help you with a few of those considerations.

1 – Scale and Sizing

Depending on the build of your home, you may have a one storey or two storey foyer. The amount of space you have will ultimately determine what type of light you may be looking for. People with two-storey foyers are often able to use larger chandeliers or pendant fixtures to fill their space. While people with one-storey foyers will need to focus on a flush or semi flush mount fixture. In either case you want to make sure that you keep approximately a 7 foot clearance between the floor and the bottom of your light. This will certainly make your life easier when moving furniture in or out of the house, hockey sticks are flying about or super tall Uncle Dawn comes to visit! 

2- Position of The Light Box and The Door

Another measurement to keep in mind is the distance between the light box and any doors in the space. Be mindful of the width or diameter of your light and ensure that you will be able to open and close any nearby doors without any interference.

3 – Sight Lines

When looking for your foyer lighting be aware that this is a high traffic area and an intersection point in the house. Take a look from the front door, down the hallway, dining room, etc and check to see what you can see within those different sight lines. You may want to choose a light for your foyer that compliments or contrasts the other elements within the space. 

4 – Style

And finally, it all comes back to style! Your personal style as well as the character of your home should inform your design choice in this space. Take some time and think about the feeling you want to create when opening your home to guests. Do you want your front foyer to be welcoming, to dazzle, to relax, or maybe to excite! The options are endless!
