Working from home has become a new reality for most of us out there. It may be out of choice due to a flexible work environment, or it may be mandatory too. Either way, a home office has become an extremely important part of a living space over recent years. Gone are the days when we could simply turn a corner of our home into a temporary workspace, and it is simply not advisable to do that now since you would be spending a lot of time working. Also, you definitely wouldn’t want to fall victim to potential health hazards like eye strain, fatigue, back pain and more. We’re not trying to terrify you of the new norm but only trying to convince you that a makeshift office is not a long-term solution. You need a separate office space in your home that is comfortable and boosts your productivity at the same time.
When you think about designing your home office, you’ll definitely have a big checklist to get through with. Anybody would start by investing heavily in a

We’re almost halfway through 2023, and the people have spoken. The lighting industry is bustling with fresh new trends that seem to have taken the spotlight in the first half of the year. Last year, we saw the revival of the Art Deco design style, which struck a chord with design enthusiasts across the globe. Matte black lighting designs were sharing the spotlight along with stone veneer fixtures. Looking at the pattern, it definitely seems like the focus was on form rather than function. However, the trends this year are suggestive of a much more balanced approach towards designing your lighting layout.
The White Teak Company had gotten in touch with a few lighting designers and lighting experts just before 2023 began to understand the demand and the requirements in the industry and then figure out what would really trend this year. We saw nature-inspired lighting designs, geometric lights, Mid-Century lighting fixtures and maximalist lights trend for a while, b

If you aren’t really familiar with ambient, task and accent lighting, you might find these terms slightly perplexing. But it is highly likely that you’ve incorporated all three layers of lighting into your homes. Simply put, ambient, task and accent lighting are three basic kinds of lighting that together form the design concept of layered lighting. Lighting affects the atmosphere around you, and ambient, task and accent lighting similarly dictate how your decor appears and the kind of energy your space projects. These three layers of lighting lend harmony to your living space, and the uniform lighting, in turn, creates a surreal atmosphere.
Understanding ambient, task and accent lighting isn’t as complicated as it sounds. The three layers of lighting work in synergy to create a visually rich space with optimal illumination in every nook and cranny. You may question the importance of layered lighting when your home already looks good with those conventional light

Since you’re here reading this, you might wonder why we’re taking you back to the basics in 2023 instead of familiarising you with the lighting trends doing rounds across the globe. The answer is pretty simple. For long, lighting has been treated as an afterthought despite being one of the most important elements of interior design. Many of us fail to understand that no matter how much we splurge on our interiors, all that will go in vain without the right illumination. The ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach in interior design never works. Every room in your living space serves a different purpose, and it is important to install a bespoke lighting layout in each area after careful consideration.
Forget the ambience and the appearance of your home, lighting can have a profound effect on us too. Lighting affects our mental and physical well-being, and it is an essential ingredient of our beautiful abodes. Optimum illumination will lift your spirits, while a dimly lit roo

Lighting is unarguably one of the most important elements of interior design. And it is one of the most misunderstood elements too. Lighting can have a profound effect on your decor, and it is essential to pay attention to the tiniest details in this particular domain. A perfectly illuminated space doesn’t come to life in an instant. Countless small decisions come into play when designing the lighting layout of your home. And even the smallest mistakes or misjudgements can take a toll on the aesthetics of your home.
Most of us make very common mistakes when it comes to lighting and end up hampering the aesthetics of our seemingly gorgeous abodes. Lighting isn’t just about installing a couple of fixtures in the space and getting done with it. It takes immense planning and patience to put together a well-lit decor keeping in mind the minute intricacies in
