Do Not Over-Light Your Building

While you want to have enough light in your building to be able to function properly, you also don’t want to light the room so much that it makes it difficult to work. Finding the balance between enough light and not enough light can be tricky. We suggest going around your building and decide how each area will be used. For example, if you own an office building, you will want the main work areas to be well lit, but if you have comfortable break areas where someone may want to read, you will want to choose lighting that is softer. Once you decide how each area of your building will be used, then you can move on to your different lighting options.

Consider Mixing The Types Of Lighting

Most office buildings use overhead lighting because it provides the employees with the light they need to work. However, different businesses call for different types of lighting, and you shouldn’t be afraid to mix and match to create the more efficient lighting solution. For example, consider adding a lot of windows to provide natural light. If you’re designing the lighting for a multi-tenant building, consider adding wall sconces to the rooms or some attractive pendant lights in the kitchen. There are many different lighting options available, therefore it’s okay to experiment with what will produce the best results.

Power Point Placement

As you design the lighting for your business, you also want to consider where you want to place your power points. It’s best to go back and think about the function of each area in your business. For example, if you’re designing the lighting for an office building, you will most likely need a lot of outlets by each cubicle or desk so that people have a place to plug in their computers. Think about all the things you need to plug in on a daily basis and where it will be most convenient to have a power point.
