What are the important commercial lighting considerations?

When choosing or designing new lighting for your commercial property there are a number of important considerations to take into account. These include:

  • The lighting placement- the placement and positioning of your lighting is a practical consideration that should not be overlooked. For overhead lighting, it’s essential that the lighting is positioned to shine as much light as possible into the centre of the space, while for task lighting, this will need to be positioned within the right area to be effective. 
  • The type of lighting- there are a number of different lighting types that can be very effective for commercial properties. LED lighting is an effective option as this is incredibly energy efficient, reducing your energy bill and lighting maintenance costs. Motion activated lighting can also help your commercial property be more energy efficient, as this only lights up when the space is in use, and the lighting is needed. When the space is empty, the lights will automatically switch off. This can be the perfect solution for commercial corridors and stairwells.
  • Lighting features- Lighting can also be a key design feature in any commercial property, especially for entrances, reception areas and conference rooms. From colour wash lighting to accent lights and uplights, there are a wide range of options available to suit any purpose and space.
