Even the nicest overhead light fixtures can feel more than a little bit institutional if they’re all that you have. Instead, I recommend lighting your space, especially in the evenings, with lamps that are at or below your eye level.

That way, the light will be a lot softer on your eyes, and thus helps your space feel much more like a home and less like an office. This is vital, especially, if you’re one of the many folks who have a hard time relaxing after working from home all day.
