Choosing the Right Lighting Can Improve Your Productivity and Health.

Lighting is an important part of an efficient and effective office. It can also turn a healthy and happy staff into a team that is struggling to make it through the day.

Poor lighting can lead to:

  • Headaches
  • Bad Posture
  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Lack of Concentration
  • Lowered Productivity
  • Eyestrain

Depending on your workspace and personal preferences, you might want different types of lighting than those originally installed in the space. A professional electrician will be able to help you choose the right type of lighting for the work you want to do.

Here are a few options:

1) Small Study or Office

If you are short on space, under cabinet lighting. recessed lighting or track lighting can help you get the focused lighting you need.
You can easily place cabinet lighting into cabinets to help easily find books, papers, and other important information or under cabinets to combine storage and work spaces.
Track lighting takes up little to no room when installed inside the ceiling and it can be moved to focus on different areas of the space.
Recessed lighting offers, even more, space since it is installed into walls or ceilings.
Add a dimmer and you can create different levels of lighting to help you adjust the space to the needs.

2) Corporate Offices

2 bulbs onWhile a little larger than your average home office or study, corporate offices come with their own set of lighting challenges. You don’t want to make the lighting so bright that it distracts from the work or makes guests feel uncomfortable. You also don’t want to have lighting that is too dim. Creating levels of lighting is often the best option for a medium sized or corporate office.

Make sure your workspaces are properly lit with both brighter lighting and warm lighting. The layering of these lights will help you avoid the headaches often brought on by overpowering lights or dim lights.

Create layers of lighting at different levels within ceiling lighting or pendant lights, lamps, and under-cabinet lighting.

Conference Rooms – Conference rooms are often the most difficult to comfortably light due to their size and open space.

You can easily use track lighting or pendant lighting for overall lighting. Including some accent lighting to help soften the feel of the room or bring a  little style to an otherwise boring room.
Be sure to add dimmers so you can utilize the space for presentations too.

Work Benches/Drafting Tables

Some work requires extra attention to lighting choices. In spaces where you need to have extra attention to detail, like workbenches or drafting tables, create focused lighting close to the work area.

Make sure the lighting can be dimmed or complemented with other lighting options. Pendant lighting with bendable posts or adjustable lamps are great options to add in these spaces.
