Office Lighting
Posted by Unregistered-12vman on March 22nd, 2006 03:29 PM
I am looking for home office lighting suggestions. The room is 9x12, 8 foot ceilings, walls of Drywall with Flat or Semi-Gloss, flooring is hardwood. This room has one small double-hung window that throws a fair amount of natural light into the room.
Presently I have a standard flourescent fixture in the center of the ceiling. I am not opposed to recessed lighting if it makes sense.
Thanks in Advance, -a12vman

I would start by asking why you want to change the existing lighting.
You told us a lot about what you have, which is much better than most people do, but we need a better idea of your needs.
Do you want more light, less reflection on a computer screen, more pleasing light (in what way) better looking fixtures etc.
As a note, I find that fluorescent lighting is usually a good choice.
With computer users, you need to be careful that the light sources or bright reflections of the light source do not reflect off the computer screen. Sometimes those mirror grids that allow the light to pass down but not reflect out work well. You would normally want to illuminate the desk top well, but not the screen.
Of course if you work is not computer intensive, then it is different. What you do has a lot to do with the amount of light you have. For example if you read a lot, you would want a soft bright light. If you primary use would be meeting with people, then you might want a more comfortable friendly lighting, a doctor or dentist would need special task lighting.

Sorry I should have given that information as well.
I do spend quite a bit of time on my computer(19" LCD Monitor), this beinghte primary use of the room.
My biggest issue with the current fixture is that the Ballast is very noisy. It is a 4 Bulb Fluorescent Fixture.

Common problem with cheap fixtures. Most fixtures are cheap. If you are otherwise happy with the light you have, you can rebuild or better and likely only a little more expensive replace, it with a good fixture from a lighting store, not the local big box store. Make sure it is a good one from the lighting store as well as they do carry some cheap ones as well.

I find it is the worst choice.

Right. A ceiling mounted fluorescent is probably the highest available source of reflections.

Ditch the fluorescent. Experiment a bit. My favorite in my office is a floor lamp with a 150 watt bulb and a desk lamp turned away from the computer screen, with a 60W bulb. Halogen would be good also. A lamp with a shade produces a softer light with minimal reflection and is easy on the eyes.
At my last place of work, the outer offices along the wall had the typical four tube ceiling lights. I never turned mine on and used the floor and desk lamps. A few people chuckled at my "eccentricity" at first. Then the president of the company stated coming to my office to sit by the floor lamp to read reports. Soon others began to appreciate different types of lighting and the effect on the eyes and made changes too. .

I like having a drafting lamp attached to my computer desk, and plug it into a little Lutron slide dimmer. I aim the light at the ceiling for indirect light, and then adjust the brightness to my taste. I almost always leave the overhead light off because of glare.

A big issue is glare, which is produced by most types of direct overhead lighting. If the ceiling is white, you can build an enclosure for a fluorescent lamp that bounces the light from the ceiling. Mount it on the wall or suspend it from the ceiling.
