4 Interior Lighting Design Tips For Your Home Office 

Today, more than ever, especially during this difficult time, more and more Calgarians are working from home. If you have set up a home office, it’s important to get your home office lighting right. This will not only boost your productivity, but it will also help you avoid problems such as eye strain and headaches. 

1. Make the Most of Natural Light

The best commercial office designs tend to include large windows or skylights that will bring as much daylight to the desks and occupants - and your home office should be no different. 

Windows provide views of the outdoors and they allow in a lot of natural light which can: 

  • Reduce eyestrain
  • Make your work environment more enjoyable
  • Boost your productivity
  • Lower your home lighting costs

Pro Tip: While natural light can reduce eye strain, it can also cause issues with glare. Consider adding window shades to filter the light and add an anti-glare film to your computer screen to reduce any glare from the sun. 

2. Add Task Lighting 

When we are working, we need directed light to help us see what we are doing more clearly, and this is known as task lighting. Some of the things you may want to consider doing include: 

  • Use adjustable table lamps to bring the light where you need it most
  • Consider under-cabinet or recessed lighting to brighten desk alcoves

Pro Tip: If you have a desk with floating shelves, consider adding LED strip lights to the bottom as they can illuminate the desktop and your work.

3. Be Versatile 

Spending many hours in a static lighting environment can be harmful to your health and it can mess up your circadian rhythm. We require lighting environments that change - for example, you need more light in the mornings and less in the evenings, so why not add lighting that adapts to your needs and changes based on the time of day? 

Pro Tip: Having multiple layers of light, including indirect light and task lighting, as well as dimmers, can help you customize your lighting environment. 

4. Make Your Space Comfortable 

Just because you’re using your home office for work, that doesn’t mean it has to be cold and sterile. A home office needs to be comfortable, and proper lighting is key to setting the scene for a relaxing work environment. 

Pro Tip: Accent lights, lamps, pendants, and wall sconces can improve a room’s mood and comfort level and provide you with a warm glow.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
