Desk Lamps – Guiding Lights

Do you spend a lot of time thinking about desk lamps? Probably not, but maybe you should. In this fast paced world we live in it’s the smaller things that get left by the wayside and sometimes leaving those smaller things aside can have a big impact.

Think about your work for instance. You probably spend a lot of time at your desk. Maybe you even spend too much time and that can take a real toll on your eyes if you don’t have the proper lighting. That is why you need to reassess your desk lighting situation.

Work environments can be harsh and if you aren’t using the correct desk lamps you could be doing some real damage to your eyes. For instance if you work in a space that uses a lot of fluorescent lights outside and around your desk you need to have a desk lamp that is appropriate for offsetting that kind of harsh lighting.


Otherwise, having both the fluorescent ambient light and the direct light of your desk lamps pounding your eyeballs could have some real negative effects. You want to be sure to talk to a lighting professional about the best possible set up for your desk lamps.

Are your eyes sore when you go home because you are staring at a computer screen all day whilst looking down at paperwork? If you are then you need to check out your desk lamps and see if they are the right kind for working under those conditions.

The double whammy of your computer screen mixed with the wrong kind of lighting can not only give you headaches but may negatively affect your vision long term. There are desk lamps designed for just about every setting and your lamp professional will know the exact correct lamp to recommend for your situation.

And, of course, there is always the design of your desk lamps. If you want to make sure you have the right mix of form and function take a hard look at your desk lamps as they are and strongly consider whether or not they reflect the image you are looking to portray.

These days you needn’t sacrifice good practical lighting with beautiful design. You can have it all. Whether it is for your desk at work or your desks at home there are a myriad of different desk lamps to choose from. The right one is there.
