So you are moving to new premises. You've signed the lease. Tick. New carpet. Tick. Acoustic furniture. Tick. Ergonomic chairs. Tick. Coffee machine. Big tick.

Have you thought of Lighting?

 

 


Office lighting often comes at the bottom of the list. Undervalued and somehow taken for granted, it is one of the most overlooked elements of modern workplace. In most cases the professional advice on how to light the space is seen as an unnecessary luxury.  Cutting corners often works, but might come back years later to haunt you and cost you in employee productivity and product replacement.


  

Here are 3 mistakes you might be making when moving to your new office…

You saw that nice photo in a design magazine, how difficult could it be to copy what you see? It’s just few pendants you scatter around the place and few downlights, right? Well, if you search long enough, you will find something that might just work. It might. Now stop and think - is what you are intending to buy (or have already bought) actually going to work? Is someone providing you with technical advice when buying the product? An experienced lighting design and supply company can save you money in the long run by sourcing a product that will actually work.

 

 

You Are Trying to Copy Something that Works Somewhere Else

 

There is plenty of inspiration on the internet. You can get your daily dose of 'oh so cool' office space on Instagram, but your workspace is unique and often looks like nothing in the picture. The layout, exposure to daylight and use of the space influence what lighting should be used. A lighting designer would take notice of the look and feel you are after. They will make sure to follow your mood boards, with added functionality as a bonus.
