Choosing the proper lighting for a commercial office space can be a bit tricky, but it is a very important aspect to get right. By having the correct lighting for a space that people will be working and spending a lot of time in, you want it to be optimised for comfort and focus. You also want your choice of light fixtures to fit the space.
Tips for Choosing Lighting
1. If you can optimise the amount of natural light that enters the office, do so. For instance, if you are in an office building, on the top floor, skylights can be an excellent source of light and not to mention, cost effective.
2. Pick the right style of light fixtures for the design of the office space. When things stand out and do not look like they belong, it could be a distraction to employees or visitors.
3. Use indirect light that is evenly spaced as opposed to direct overhead lighting, which can cause strain.
4. Also consider low glare task lighting.
All of these tips can help you in choosing the proper lighting for your office space. Remember the more comfortable the lighting, the less chance of strain on employees.
