To find the right height for your desk, measure the height of your PC or laptop monitor and use it to be the approximate height of your lamp. Don’t forget about the lampshade. It may not take up space on the surface, but it can become a hindrance if it bumps into your monitor or blocks your view.

In general, the length of the screen should be approximately 65 to 90 percent of the length of the base or approximately one-third of the total height of the fixture. If you have a small desk but want a large lamp, consider using a paper clip.

Intended Use

All desk lamps provide task lighting, but before selecting a specific type, determine its primary use. If you need to illuminate a large space, select a taller lamp: the taller the lamp, the greater the area over which it can shine. If you share a desk or work on a variety of tasks, a lamp that offers different light intensities and the ability to tilt and manipulate is probably best for you.

Power Source

If you have a power outlet or power strip available at your workstation, you can opt for a corded lamp. Otherwise, there are plenty of wireless options – some run on batteries and some have USB charging ports. Battery-powered lamps are the most portable and tend to cost more due to the lamp’s rechargeable batteries. However, they can also be less powerful, depending on the quality of the battery.

Portable lamps with lithium-ion batteries are more powerful and last longer per charge. If you opt for a battery-powered light, choose one with energy-efficient LED bulbs; They will last longer between charges.

Adjustability

Adjustable desk lamps allow you to move the light without physically lifting the lamp. The adjustment functions are useful if space is limited or if you need to vary the type of light you need on a daily basis.

Some adjustable lamps simply swing or twist, some feature a flexible neck so you can bend the light to where you need illumination, and some have a telescopic feature to adjust the height up and down. Lamps with more than one adjustable function are available, so the degree of adjustment varies.

Additional Features

Some desk lamps have convenient features to help you with your daily routine:

  • Organizer compartments contain paper clips, pens, pins, and pencils to contain clutter.
  • Digital displays show the time and are useful if you don’t have room for a clock.
  • Charging stations allow you to charge your smartphone, tablet, or other device while you work.
  • The presence sensors automatically turn on the lamp when someone enters the workspace.
  • Smart lamps support smart technology to control color and brightness with your voice or electronic device.

FAQS: 7 Best Desk Lamps To Buy in 2022

How Many Types Of Desk Lamps Are There?

The best desk lamp comfortably illuminates the tasks and projects you’re working on while inhibiting eyestrain and glare. Ideally, the lamp will also suit your overall decor and style. Here are some basic styles that you are likely to encounter while shopping.

Swing Arm

Ideal for tasks that need specific light, such as drawing or sketching, a swing arm lamp has an adjustable arm that rotates and swings in different positions so you can control its height, brightness level, and light directions. This style allows you to move the light across your desk without having to lift and move the entire lamp.

The best swing arm lamps have durable gaskets and are made from robust metal materials such as brushed nickel, aluminum, brass, and bronze. They also have several adjustment options to control the intensity of the light.

Adjustable

While swing arm lamps have a swing arm, there are desk lamp models that are adjusted in other ways. Some have telescopic poles to alter the height up or down or to allow the lamp head to be tilted up or down or both. The greatest flexibility can be found in a gooseneck lamp, named for its flexible metal body reminiscent of a waterfowl’s neck, which can twist and bend in various configurations.

Organizer

If desk space is limited or tends to accumulate clutter, a lamp with a built-in organizer is a great bonus. These lamps contain storage openings for pens, notepads, and other small work essentials that can take up space on your desk.

The organizer is built into the base of the lamp, so there are no extra trays or containers to compete with your desk space. Choose an organizer base that is the right size for your desk and the number of office supplies you need at your fingertips.

Clip-on

A clip-on lamp won’t take up space on your desk surface; rather, it is clamped or clipped to the side of your desk, a shelf, or any area near your desk sturdy enough to hold it. A clip-on lamp is an adjustable lamp without a base and is especially useful if you don’t have a permanent workstation; You can take it with you and attach it to a kitchen table, shelf, or wherever. The clips are also quite compact, so they are easy to store when not in use.

Why are adjustable brightness and color settings so important?

When you work at your desk all day, your needs may change based on your tasks and also based on the amount of daylight entering the room. Sometimes you will need a brighter light than others, which is why this option is so important.

Also, sometimes you may want a warm light when working on your computer, a cool light when trying to observe details, or natural light when trying to see colors accurately. That is why you will benefit from having a desk lamp with adjustable color temperatures.

What’s the importance of desk lamps being able to swivel and/or tilt?

Desk lamps that can swivel or tilt provide more functionality. They allow you to focus on a particular area or illuminate your entire workspace. You can zoom in when you want to brighten specific details or out of the way. Also, if you have a large desk, you will want an arm that is long enough to provide light to the entire area. Another advantage of the adjustable heads and arms is that they can be positioned to help reduce glare.

Conclusion

Having the best desk lamp for your eyes is a thing between having headaches and itchy eyes or working as productively as ever. However, choosing the best desk lamp is not as easy as it sounds. Aside from the long list of desk lamp options available on the market, there are also notable differences and advantages from one desk lamp model to another.

With this in mind, it is best if you consider several things before purchasing, including the purpose of the lamp, location, power supply, type, material, bulb type, size, design as well. as well as other features like lighting settings and brightness options. . By doing so, you will be able to choose which is the best desk lamp for your eyes.
