How to Transform Your Home Office with Premium Lighting

Now that working from home is more common than ever before, there’s no reason to put off styling your home office with premium furniture and interior design. Yet, it’s important not to overlook how proper lighting can completely transform your home office, elevating your workspace from every angle.

Whether you need somewhere to be alert and hyper-productive or you want to relax and let the creative juices flow, lighting in your home office can get you there.

Here, we’re exploring how you can transform your home office with premium lighting and where to start. 

Match Your WFH Style

If you work from home, chances are you’ve already cultivated your home office style. When choosing the perfect lighting to amplify your space, match your office’s current style to make the space truly come alive.

However, if your home office isn’t as put-together, perhaps tucked into the corner of your kids’ playroom like an afterthought, here are a few style ideas to make your at-home workspace more intentional.

Mid-Century Modern

Mid-century modern is a popular interior design style that focuses on functionality. Coming into fashion in 1950s America, mid-century modern is characterised by curved lines, dark wood, and natural materials like leather.

The practicality of many mid-century modern pieces makes it a common style choice for a home office.

Natural and Coastal

Another popular interior design style (especially in Australia) is a natural, coastal approach with light, neutral tones using materials like bamboo and wicker to create a comfortable aesthetic. 

For a home office, this style can help you feel relaxed and calm while you’re working and, for this reason, might make the perfect interior design style for your workspace.

When matching your light fittings to a natural and coastal style home office, go for simple designs made with organic materials.

Eccentric and Unique

Perhaps if you work in a creative field or you simply enjoy the eccentricities of life, styling your home office in a way that’s unique and fun can help to get your productivity juices flowing, making it a reasonable choice for home office lighting.

Install a fabulous chandelier pendant to give your home office the star treatment or choose light fittings with exposed globes for an industrial vibe. The options are truly endless when it comes to installing inspiring and unique lights in your home office.

Go for a Lighting Set

Lighting sets are another fantastic way to elevate your home office for a cohesive look that’s both functional and stylish. Lighting sets offer matching fittings that come in a variety of options from table lamps to floor lamps to pendants and more.

Even if you don’t have a defined style for your home office or you’ve set up a home office in a corner of your home instead of in its own room, lighting sets can tie the space together without much else.

All in all, going for a lighting collection is the best way to create a cohesive home office through lighting, regardless of where your workspace might be.

Light Globes Matter

Finally, it’s important to consider that the light globes you install in your light fittings matter. The colour emitted by your light globes offers a certain feel. This means that you can completely transform your home office based on the light globes you choose.

Light falls on the colour spectrum and without delving too deep into the science, light globes can either offer cooler blue tones, warmer yellow tones or somewhere in between. The three main types of colour temperatures when it comes to light globes are Warm White (between 2000K-3000K), Cool White (4000K), and Daylight (between 5000K and 6500K).

The cooler the light, the more bright and energising you’re likely to feel. However, in a home office you’ll most often want to emulate the natural light that emits from the sun. Most LED light globes offer a sort of natural light (Daylight) that is great for home offices as they keep you feeling awake and alert during your workday.

However, if you’re looking for a bit of ambience at your workstation, a warmer light globe might be just what you’re looking for. These lights have more of a calming effect and usually, filament light globes can offer these sensations.

Filament light globes are also best for exposed globe light fittings as they look interesting and add to the overall appeal of certain exposed lamps and pendants.

The point is, your light globes matter, so choose them wisely. Check out our full blog on how to choose the right light globes here.

Final Thoughts

Your home office should feel like a sanctuary, not like an afterthought. It should be a place where you feel productive and creative, comfortable and proud. 

Now that you’re used to working from home, it’s key to give yourself some separation between your work life and your home life. So, take some time to elevate your home workspace with interior design, styling and, of course, premium lighting.
