Lighting considerations for conference rooms

So, what are the important things to consider when it comes to conference room lighting? Well, there are several, including:

  • Effective background lighting- The lighting in your conference room needs to be suitable for the tasks carried out. Your audience will most likely need to be able to see a screen or projection, as well as read paperwork. This means that effective background lighting is necessary, and this will need to take into consideration any natural light available too. Ceiling lights, and specific down-lights can be a good option, as long as the room has effective lighting control too.
  • Uplighting- if you want your conference room to have some visual interest, and something that can create variation, why not consider uplighting? This is a good way to illuminate walls and even colour wash your conference room, and changes in this light can be used as social cues for your colleagues too.
  • Motion sensitive- motion activated lighting can be a good fit, as this means you wont be paying to the light the space, when the conference room is not in use.
