The correct position of a table lamp
Where is the best place to use a table lamp?
Using your table lamp, you can either illuminate the background or it can serve as an ambient light.
In which direction does the light shine?
Different lighting designs emit light in different directions. This should be considered when purchasing. The lamp should therefore then be set up in a way whereby the light lands where it should.
How bright is the light?
The intensity of your table lamp will determine where it should be placed. If the light can be dimmed, the light intensity can be adjusted according to your needs. If you change the light source, you have more flexibility to simply use the right lightbulb for the appropriate location.
Will there be glare?
You should be careful that your lamp does not dazzle you when you are working.
Where will the shadows be?
If objects are in front of your table lamp, it is more likely that shadows will emerge. In the worst case scenario, this can be on your work surface. Therefore, it is important to try and place your table lamp so there are no shadows.
