1. A ROOM IS NEVER USED FOR JUST ONE PURPOSE, so why light it in just one way? Consider an indirect light for those times you’re surfing online, and a more direct light for activities that require more concentration, like reading.
2. FOR THOSE OF US WHO FIND GREAT JOY IN READING, nothing beats the feeling of settling down in your favourite spot with a good book. But shadows can be distracting when you’re trying to concentrate, and also strain your eyes. Always make sure to light from your non-dominant side. So if you’re right-handed, light from the left to help avoid those pesky shadows.
We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
