Whether you work in a home office or a cubicle farm, the character and quality of lighting in your workspace can help increase your productivity. Use a desk lamp that doubles as décor and a dedicated task light. This is great for enhancing your workspace with strategic and decorative lighting while helping you avoid eye strain for certain tasks like reading and writing.
Most home offices will feature ambient lighting that is diffused throughout the space and task lighting that is focused on specific workstations. Beyond these two functional lighting types, you may want to add decorative and accent lighting to help improve the visual character of your home office. Accent lighting like mantel or picture lights draws attention to objects or other elements in the room, while decorative lights—such as wall lights — provide direct visual appeal.
