What are the important considerations when installing task lighting for different purposes?

Task lighting can be used effectively throughout any property, be it commercial or residential. In fact, this can be very beneficial in some settings, especially offices and student accommodation. But before installing task lighting it is important to consider the specific purpose this will serve. So what are the most effective uses for task lighting? Well, there are several, including;

  • Kitchen lighting- in any residential property, or commercial property with a kitchen, task lighting can be very beneficial. Usually in the form of under cabinet lighting, this casts a strong light down directly onto the worktop underneath. As a result, for any food prep, cleaning or cooking, the environment will be much safer for anyone using it, and this will also help to prevent accidental damage to the property too.
  • Desk lighting- for any office, at home or work, the right lighting can be the key to motivation and productivity. It can also prevent eye strain, migraines and injury, which in the workplace is very beneficial for reducing the amount of absenteeism. This can be in the form or adjustable wall lighting, or built in desk lighting, or a plug in lamp. However, when using any plug in electrical items, you will need to be sure these are PAT tested, and ensure that multiple extension cables are not causing an electrical safety risk.
  • Adjustable wall lighting- for any residential setting, adjustable wall lighting in the bedroom can be very useful. This can be moved and positioned to where the user needs the lighting, and then repositioned as and when necessary.
