So, how important is commercial entrance lighting?

Choosing the right lighting style and design for the entrance to any commercial space can be very valuable. Whether it’s an office block, a retail store, or even a warehouse, the entrance lighting can make a big impact on the space. This is essential for a number of different reasons, including:

  • Creating a welcoming space- the right entrance lighting will be designed to welcome staff, customers, partners, suppliers, or whoever may be entering your commercial property. The right lighting can help to establish your commercial property as a trustworthy and reliable space, and by extension your company will also be thought of in the same way. This helps create a positive impression of your company instantly, and helps to create a positive mindset for anyone entering.
  • Creating a safe space- entrance lighting also serves a practical purpose for any commercial property in that the entrance, and exit, will be very well lit. This can make it safer for staff and customers leaving late at night, preventing slips and trips as well as helping to reduce crime rates.
  • Showing your company persona and branding- designing the right entrance lighting doesn’t just have to be practical, it can also be a visual design statement too. This can be used to emphasise company branding and establish the type of persona that you want to present. From the light colour to patterns and lighting style, you can say a lot about your company with well designed entrance lighting.
