What are the considerations for lighting design for comfortable waiting areas?

From hotel reception areas to client facing offices there are a number of different types of establishment that require waiting areas. These are often one of the first parts of your business that your potential customers or clients will see, before they enter the rest of your property. As a result, it is really important that these waiting areas create the perfect impression of your company. The lighting can play an important role in this. So what should you consider when lighting a waiting area and how can you ensure that this is comfortable? Well there are a number of things to bear in mind including:

  • The lighting level
  • Task lighting
  • Natural light

Choosing a lighting level

The level of lighting in any waiting area is an important consideration because this can make the space more comfortable for your potential customers or guests. You should consider choosing lighting that is not too bright, as this can lead to headaches and eye strain, but you also need to make sure that the space is well lit for safety and general activities. Combining lighting types can be the best option.

Using task lighting for waiting areas

Task lighting, such as adjustable lamps and wall lighting can be a great option for waiting areas. If your customers or guests will need to find paperwork and have this in order ready for an appointment time or to check in, it is important that they can see what they’re doing and read things through beforehand. Task lighting can allow them to do this while ensuring that the rest of the room is not too bright.
