5 Lighting Tips for Digital Writers’ Home Offices

Being all day in the computer creating new content has become a trend. Nowadays most digital writers work from their computer at home which comes with a wide range of advantages, and with the connectivity offered by modern technology. The issue is that not everyone understands how important the lighting to create the perfect work atmosphere at home is. Besides, lighting is very important for your vision. You should look to create an ambiance that not only inspires you, makes you feel at home, but that also glows enough to let you see what you are doing. Here are some tips which will illuminate your way.

1- You should have a mix of light sources at different levels to create a suitable environment. You need appropriate trendy task lighting for whatever you do in that room (reading, writing, updating social media,)” Try and usher in natural light in a controlled fashion and ensure that it blends in beautifully with the artificial illumination.
2- Office spaces are busy areas, and recessed lighting can provide general, task, and accent lighting without getting in the way of the action. Close-to-ceiling fixtures are another alternative for these areas.
3- If you are not blessed with sufficient natural light, then artificial lights become twice as significant, as you will be using them during the day and night time. Overhead lighting forms the most fundamental part of ambient lighting. Often, you already have recessed lights in the house that take care of part of the job, but here is where many homeowners make a mistake. They keep what they have for not spending money, but the existing ambient lighting was not designed for a home office. Here are additional sources of specialty lighting and bulbs to add to the ambient light.

Hint: Make sure that you choose the correct bulb wattage. When you buy any lighting fixture, check the maximum wattage it will take. A bulb with too high a wattage can produce excess heat that can create a fire hazard or damage the fixture at your home.
