The pandemic has made us all stuck at home. To make the best out of this, we can make ourselves feel more comfortable at home by making some home décor changes. Lighting is one of the essential parts of a home. The proper lighting helps us complete everyday tasks like working or studying effectively. For this purpose, it is vital to have the correct lighting for different tasks. The appropriate lighting can guide you and make tasks like reading, sewing, cooking, grooming, and doing work more accessible. These tasks are often done in a specific corner rather than the whole room. Hence the lighting can be localized.
This is where task lighting comes in. Sometimes due to bad lighting, we have trouble focusing on visual tasks. This problem can be more distressing for older people as they have weaker eyesight.
When task lighting is implemented correctly in your home, it lowers eye strain and fatigue. Our Ankur 3996 Track Light is perfect for illuminating dim spaces and reducing fatigue and stress in hallways and kitchens.
To identify problem areas, go to a room in your house and try to read finely printed words under your current lighting. Ask yourself if you can read it correctly. Now, shine your phone’s flashlight on it and try again. A change in existing lighting is recommended if you see more clearly now. On our website, you can find various task lighting fixtures and products designed to illuminate these task areas and make it easier for you to perform visual tasks at home.
The task fixture design makes it very fluid and flexible. The designs make it usable practically anywhere. They are most commonly used for tables and floors, but lights are also available with a set of wheels for portability. These lighting fixtures are highly accessible. Some are made with magnifying lenses and built-in lighting to make reading painless for people with eyesight difficulties. Table and floor lamps and directional sconces are customizable as one can install a bulb with higher light output in the fixture, change the shade, or position an existing institution to allow more illumination.
Task lighting makes your everyday life easier. Some task lighting fixtures allow you to control the amount of light and the color output. There are a few types of LED bulbs, and lighting fixtures are “smart.” You can connect them to other innovative products in the home and automate them to follow a schedule and be controlled wirelessly through your smartphone or different types of remote controls. Our Ankur Clair Bedside Wall Light is perfect for light reading before bed.
While choosing a task lighting fixture, here are some of the things you should keep in mind:
First and foremost, consider the purpose of installing task light fixtures. What problem are you trying to solve? For whom? This way, you know what you need for your home.
2. Light source
While installing Task fixtures, LED light sources are recommended as they are incredibly efficient and long-lasting. LEDs also emit a lesser amount of heat than older incandescent light bulbs.
3. Amount of light
Remember that different tasks require different amounts of light for the best visibility.
This feature allows the light to be directed wherever needed and ensures that the whole task area is covered.
5. Light color
LEDs come in a range of tints and colors indicated by Kelvin (K), which is often described as “warm” (reds and yellows) or “cool” (blues). LED light bulbs and fixtures have a color rating printed on the bulb or carton that lists the chromaticity value.
