A Guide To: Office Lighting

Posted on October 25 2017

When it comes to finding the right design to suit your luxury lighting needs, the options can seem somewhat endless. Here at iLte Lighting, our friendly and knowledgable staff are on hand to make the process as simple and seamless as possible for you.

When it comes to office lighting, it's important to understand that your choices can have a major impact - either positive or negative - on your health. For example, overly harsh flourescent lighting is draining for your eyes and can be a trigger for migraines. Dim lighting can cause eye strain and headaches. As for a dark office? Well, that's just downbeat.

If you are lucky enough to work from home, that gives you the full flexibility of designing your own lighting set up. In settings such as this, it is a good idea to take into account the ergonomics of the environment. If you work in an office space, you might have less flexibility, but there are still some helpful tips you can take.

Natural Light: regardless of what the setting is, a crucial aspect when it comes to selecting the optimum lighting design is knowing your space. Look at and understand the natural light that is already provided. For optimum use of natural light, if there's a window that gives plenty of light, position the desk near it.

Fluorescent Light: this lighting isn't ideal, but there are a number of different ways to break up exposure to them. For example, they can be turned off during daylight, or they can be contrasted with task lights, ambient lights, or corrective lights.
