Good lighting is vital to avoid the risk of eye strain. Lighting can be both natural and artificial. The amount of natural light can be adjusted by using shutters, curtains or screens. A centre light or wall lights can create a bright yet inviting feel. A desk lamp should not shine into your eyes or onto a screen.
Colour affects us all in different ways, so choose your colours carefully. Creative people often prefer a vibrant working environment to stimulate the imagination, while others may prefer a more peaceful colour scheme to aid concentration.
The desk is the focal point of any workspace. It may have to hold your computer equipment, desk lighting or whatever else you need, so make sure it is a suitable size and is the right height to avoid any strain on your back, hands or eyes.
Your chair should be chosen with the utmost care, especially if you will be sitting in it for hours. Make sure it is ergonomically suitable and is comfortable for you. Look for good lumbar support, height and tilt adjustments and a comfortable seat.
Plan before you start, and if you follow the above suggestions, then you will not only have a work space designed just for you, but also one in which it will be a pleasure to work.
