How many lumens do I want for my bedroom slash office (I work from home now)? There's only one overhead socket.
>How many lumens do I want for my bedroom slash office
1000 or more, 100+ watt equivalent
2700k ambient light is closer to incandescent. 5000k is more like white light and is brighter IMO
If your light fixture is like pic you can re-install the fixture (if it is opposite) to shine more on your work, or get a fixture that has 2 light sockets and really brighten it up for work. A second hand store or Habitat for Humanity type of place would have these for cheap.
Like someone else said get a freestanding or desk lamp for the low light preference.
I have two 53 watt halogen incandescent lamps in a semi-indirect ceiling fixture lighting my ~120 square foot bedroom slash office. They are rated at 1050 lumens each, for 2100 lumens total. I'm quite content with it and find it bright enough for daytime computer use but not too bright before getting into bed at night.
