Task lighting is focused illumination, providing a beam of light onto a work surface. The presence of focused lighting on the area that you are working on helps to effectively and comfortably perform a particular task at hand. Task lighting is a very important aspect of any room, particularly a study or home office. A few examples of specific task lighting applications include writing, reading, using a computer, and craftwork.

It is not enough to use the same amount of light across an entire room, particularly in a work space. This is why task lighting, such as a desk lamp, is necessary. A good desk lamp is important in any work environment or home office, especially when working with a computer or laptop as viewing the monitor will require less light than reading paper materials.

When choosing a desk lamp, you need to consider both design compatibility with your room’s interior décor and the lamp’s ability to provide the amount of lighting you need. Familiarize yourself with the different options available for you in terms of light source and features so you are able to select the best desk lamp for your work space.
