Before you decide on any particular lamp, consider its overall structure. Choose one with a sturdy base that won’t be easily knocked over. If your desk space allows, find a task light with a long-arm fixture that delivers a wide lighting coverage. Traditional desk lamps only illuminate a corner of your desk area so be sure to find a new desk lamp that can offer a wider coverage, preferably illuminating every corner of your desk with even, flicker-free illumination.
Not all desk lamps are designed with the same colour of light, which is affected by colour temperature, measured in Kelvins. If you have a preference for working under cool white light (5700 K) to enhance productivity and like to relax or leisure read under warm white light (2700 K), then you’ll want an LED desk lamp that allows for manual adjustments across this spectrum (2700 K to 5700 K).
Other than a lamp’s style and light output, you may want to consider a lamp that is highly flexible. Many modern lamps offer an adjustable arm with a rotating shade that allows precise positioning of the lamp head. Find one that offers durability during adjustments so you can focus on getting the light to where you need it without worrying about lamp parts coming apart.
