Different lighting styles and tones have a significant impact on the atmosphere and ambience of your office. Lights that are too bright for example can impact on employee wellbeing and choosing the wrong colour can affect the first impression that visitors have of your business.
There are several articles which highlight a possible link between the right lighting in a business and employee productivity. Lighting that’s either too harsh or too dim has been shown to have the most impact.
Harsh or overly bright lighting can trigger headaches or migraines, whereas dim lighting means your employees are having to strain their eyes more than they probably should or need to.
Maximising natural light and combining this with the right tone of electrical light is one way you can address these issues, and our team of design experts can help you find the one that works best for your company.
Commercial LED lighting is of a high standard and offers a viable alternative to traditional fluorescent tubes and light bulbs. Panels are available for suspended ceilings and can also be retro-fitted into your existing ceiling – you could even save up to 65% on your energy bills.
If you’d like a more individual approach, then lighting can be used creatively to produce a range of effects, whether as a feature in itself, or used more subtly to highlight parts of a room or furniture.
It might seem obvious but having a warm office is one of the key ways to create a comfortable environment. Heating is especially important during the colder months but it’s also important that your office doesn’t get too hot in summer as well.
Ensuring that the office is free from draughts and is well-insulated not only makes for a pleasant working environment when the weather turns colder, but can also help cut down on the costs of turning up the radiators.
