Why Proper Office Lighting is More Essential Than You Might Think
When most people think of office design––or interior design for that matter––they think of furniture, paint colors, and wall art. However, the unsung hero in a well-designed office is proper lighting. It doesn’t matter how nice your office’s furniture and color scheme are if the flickering fluorescent lights give you a headache. or if the glare on your computer screen makes you squint.
In case you aren’t very familiar with the ins and outs of office lighting, our team of professional Lenexa office designers is here to help you understand the basics.
Benefits of Proper Office Lighting
- Aesthetics. Improper lighting––too bright, too dim, too yellow, too white––can make an attractive workspace an unpleasant place to be. However, a professionally lit workspace can turn an already pleasant office space into something spectacular.
- Employee Health and Productivity. Employees who work all day in an improperly lit office may suffer from eyestrain and migraines. Meanwhile, employees who work near a significant source of natural light are more likely to sleep longer and more soundly than their coworkers who complete the same tasks under artificial lighting.
- Positive Workplace Atmosphere. Lighting can make the difference between an inviting office atmosphere and feeling like you work in a cave. For example, lots of windows and natural light in meeting rooms can help workers stay alert and think creatively. Warm floor lamps in interior rooms with less natural light create a feeling of comfort and help workers relax.
- Reduced Energy Consumption. If you are still using incandescent, halogen, or old fluorescent lighting, making the switch to LED lighting can reduce your electric bill and maintenance costs. Reducing energy consumption may also contribute to achieving Green Business certifications.
