Parents should pay attention not only to the choice of school supplies, but also to the organization of a desk at which the student will do his homework. The quality of the tasks performed and the child's eyesight depend on the competent organization of the workplace.
Lighting is also of great importance when decorating a desk for a student, therefore it is very important to choose the right desk lamp for a child. If the lighting is installed according to all the rules, the child will not overwork when completing assignments, and his eyes will not get tired. If the lighting fixture is chosen incorrectly, it can lead to headaches and deterioration of vision. When choosing, it should also be borne in mind that not every table lamp meets the relevant hygiene standards.
The shape and color of the table lamp shade
The shape and color of the plafond play a huge role, since this element of the lighting fixture scatters light in a certain direction, and can also enhance or dim the light bulb. Experts recommend purchasing table lamps for schoolchildren with cone-shaped shades with wider edges and a narrow base.
As for the color of the plafond, it should not be too bright, since the challenging color will constantly distract the child's attention from the learning process. It is better to choose a lighting fixture with a shade of pastel shades that will not allow your eyes to strain. Of course, table lamps with completely transparent plastic or glass shades look very nice. However, such lighting devices are only suitable for creating a certain atmosphere in the room, and it is not recommended to put them on the student's desk.
It is necessary to pay attention to the material from which this part of the table lamp was made. The best are those lighting fixtures that have metal shades that have excellent fire safety characteristics. If the choice fell on lamps with plastic shades, then it is necessary to choose a harder and thicker material of the highest quality.
Table lamp design
The fastening of the lighting fixture for the student's desk should be quite rigid, and the leg should be very flexible. A rigid mount will prevent a sudden fall of the lamp, and with the help of a flexible leg, it will be possible to easily correct or redirect the flow of light in the desired direction.
When choosing a place for a table lamp, one should take into account which hand the student is writing with. For a "right-handed person" it is better to install the lighting device on the left side, and for a "left-handed person" on the right.
