What are the most common reception area lighting mistakes?

Guests/customers/clients will head to the reception area of your property first.

Unfortunately, many companies miss out this step, and this leads to lighting mistakes, including:

  • Lighting that is too bright
  • Lighting that doesn’t suit the decor
  • Lighting that doesn’t highlight the reception desk area

Lighting that is too bright

Lighting in any reception area needs to bright enough to allow good vision, but lighting that is too bright can be off-putting and even disorienting. As most of your customers will be arriving at the reception area straight from outside, low level light can help give the eyes chance to adjust.

Lighting that doesn’t suit the decor

If your space is contemporary or traditional and rustic, you need lighting to suit this. Choosing light fixtures and fittings that match the decor is a good way to make sure that your reception area has a strong theme, and choosing feature light fixtures to accentuate this can be a good idea.
