In this desk tour. Being a sit stand set up cable management is a must. To remedy this. A nice hub and whole heap of adhesive cable ties organizers are definitely necessary.

Keychron K2

Keychron K2 is one of the best mac specific mechanical keyboards at a reasonable price in my opinion and the brown gateron switches make for a beautifully tactile typing experience.

Natural light is the must in home office set up

Good light can bring positive emotional energy. During the day, sunlight pouring through windows and curtains can create a comfortable atmosphere. Natural light is of course the first priority in the lighting design of the workspace where you will be staying for a long time. It is recommended to set it in a place with bright lighting. Provide a focused and comfortable working environment.

lighting your workspace above 500lx (1 lux = 1 lm/m2 )

Because of functional requirements, the illuminance of accent lighting is very important. The illuminance is the luminous flux received per unit area, the unit is Lux. (1Lux=1 lumen/square meter) Generally speaking, the full lighting illuminance of the workspace is about 100Lux, and key lighting such as using computers, writing, reading, etc. must be at least If there is more than 500Lux, we recommends that the average illuminance of the general office desktop should be 750Lux.

Color temperature 4500K~5500K is most suitable

The main function of color temperature is to create a space atmosphere. The higher the color temperature value (over 6500K), the more blue the light will be, which will create a calmer atmosphere. The workspace generally needs a bright and clear vibe, which can boost the spirit. But it is recommended not to be too white, and neutral light with a color temperature of about 4500K~5500K is most suitable.

Use indirect lighting to protect eyes and create a personality vibe

First of all, indirect lighting can be used in the workspace to avoid glare caused by direct light. In addition, attention should be paid to avoid direct lighting of the light source on the computer screen. Because the screen itself will emit light. If the light in the space is too strong. It will easily cause visual fatigue. It is best to balance the light from the screen with the surrounding light source to avoid visual impairment.
