In the study, our primary intent is always to focus optimally and finish work faster. To this end, we usually show a preference for quiet rooms with plenty of natural light. But that is no reason for the room to be dull! Also, since lights form a quintessential part of this space, can you think of a better way to liven up this room than amping up the study room lighting?

We wouldn’t compromise on the best lighting for studying! So look through these ideas to ensure that your study is the brightest space in your home.

Study Room Lighting #1: Wall-mounted Lights

Wall-mounted lights are the easiest way to brighten up the study! Position them at a convenient spot on the wall, and watch the room lighten up! It always helps if the wall lights are close to the study table or workstation.

Add some cheer to your study

Pendant lights are a very convenient option for brightening up the study. Not only do these add a cheerful feel to your room, they are versatile too! You can install pendant lights literally anywhere in your study. But for best results, put up just above the study area; the focussed downward light is excellent for studying for working.

Study Room Lighting #4: Lights on the Ceiling
