Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected the whole world, many people have started working from home. Are you one of those who prefers to work from home voluntarily? Having previously worked desk-alone in an office environment, now you have to convert part of your home into an office environment? You chose your home lighting to relax and relax, but what changes do you need to make to work now? If you do not make lighting arrangements for the Home Office and work with poor lighting, your productivity decreases, your energy decreases, you experience eye fatigue and headaches, thus losing your ability to work and your desire.

• Quality of Light:

  • Color Temperature : Lighting used in homes is made with bulbs with a color temperature of 3000K with a higher relaxing effect.In office environments, 6500K color lighting is used to keep employees more vigorous with a higher energy level. If you have a special lighting that illuminates your desk instead of replacing the bulbs of your home, replace the light in this lighting tool with a 6500K light bulb.If you do not have such lighting, buying a desk lamp can be a great solution.

CRI (Coloral Return Index) :

If you are working on a job where object colors are very important (photography, fabric works, dyeing works, etc.). ) in this case, you need high CRI lighting to show the colors of objects in the most accurate way.
 • Prevent glazing.
It is called glazing that a bright light source or reflection negatively affects our vision. While low light negatively affects our eyesight, too much affects our eyesight negatively. The direct eye of the light source is one of the most dazzling problems we encounter. 
To prevent glazing, we must change the position, direction or your own sitting position and direction of the table that we will use in our house to prevent more light from coming to your desk or computer than desired.
A light source placed behind you while you work on your computer will create a annoying glow on your monitor.
Another easy way to avoid glazing may be to cover the bulbs of our chandeliers with a lampshade hat and give them a softer light.
 • Do not allow shadows to form.
The working table should not be overshadowed. If you are working with a light coming from behind, then you will have your own shadow on your table. To prevent this, an adjustable table lamp should be preferred for the level and angle of light. With adjustable table lamps, you can make lighting suitable for your business. If you are working in handwriting, you should be able to move your desk lamp to the right or left of your desk to prevent the shadow of your own arm, according to left hand or right hand use. Cable length get a table lamp that fits it.
    • There must be static lighting.
The light supplied by the light source must be constant, that is, it should not vibrate. Depending on the time, sudden changes in the light source are defined as vibration. Working in an illuminated area with a flickering light source causes the eyes to tire quickly. While we don't notice these vibrations, our eyes transmit them to our brains. Such vibrations can cause eye deterioration or cause headaches in some people. Opt for non-vibrating bulbs.


    • Take advantage of daylight.
Do not ignore the unique benefit of natural light from your window. Sunlight produces warm lighting that improves the working environment. To take advantage of the daylight, consider setting up your desk right in front of your window. On the other hand, you may need to take into account direct sunlight that may dazzle your desk at certain times of the day. Yes, glossy surfaces can be a problem from time to time, but try working in a controlled way in natural light and let it mix beautifully with artificial lighting. Aligning your desk in the north or south directions is a convenient solution so that daylight does not create shade at any time of the day.     

Do not stay at home all day if your table is not by the window. If you don't have a garden, take advantage of the sunshine by going out on the balcony. If all the lighting in your study consists of fluorescent bulbs, either replace them or add additional non-fluorescent lighting. Remember that working only under fluorescent lamps can trigger your migraine pains.
