A pleasant workplace is an office where you not only have access to all the materials and equipment you need, but where you also have sufficient lighting to carry out different tasks. Reading or writing or typing over a long period of time in a place where the lighting is poor, very quickly leads to tired eyes that in turn leads to headaches and reduced concentration. Therefore proper lighting ensures that you work and continue working productively over a long period of time.
So don't just buy any old desk lamp, but take the following factors into account before you decide. The ideal lighting situation includes a combination of natural light, direct light (from a desk lamp) and indirect light (from a ceiling lamp). Of course you can’t control the amount of natural light available, but you can make the right choice where your desk lamp and the indirect source of light are concerned. Regarding desk lamps, you should always choose one that’s adjustable and has a flexible arm. This means you can have light exactly where you want it. LED lamps make the best choice because they are ecologically and economically sound options and are less tiring on the eyes than other types of lamps.
