Are you struggling to upgrade your small office with some cool office lighting? Well, this article will give you some really cool office lighting ideas that you could incorporate into your own workspace.
Cool Office Lighting can Transform Your Office
The proper lighting in a workspace can make a huge difference!. A number of years ago I walked into a co-worker’s office cubicle and it was spectacular! It was almost like I walked into his private study in his home.
Needless to say, he inspired me to not only make my work space the best it can be, but I think he also played a big part inspiring me to create this site. In his office, which was basically a cubicle with a door, he had everything in just the right place with absolutely no clutter.
But, to be completely honest, even though his office was organized spectacularly, it was his office lighting which made the biggest difference compared to all of the other offices in the company.
He had a corner floor lamp which spanned the height of his office which gave off a wondrous glow inside his work space. It was really my first introduction to the concept of cubicle décor and that if you make some small changes to your work space it really can have a big difference in how you perceive that work space.
So, it took me this long to actually go out and buy a lamp to enhance my office lighting. My cubicle has built-in fluorescent lighting that I use every day but adding this small lamp from Ikea has truly made a difference in the ambiance of my work space. The lamp in the link doesn’t look exactly like mine, as that one isn’t available any longer, but it is very similar.
To be honest, I think it’s this unique shade material that gives the lamp its exotic look and style.

It’s hard to describe but for short money you can supplement your cubicle lighting or your home office lighting by purchasing a small lamp or, if you have room, spring for a slightly more expensive floor lamp.
Walmart has them for a reasonable price since we recently bought one for our bedroom. To be honest, over the years I had noticed a number of office lamps just within the cubicles in the general vicinity of my work space.
So, the other day after I placed the new Ikea lamp in my office, I went around to a number of cubicles right near mine and took some pictures of what others use for office lighting solutions. They can be seen in the images below.
