Choosing the Best Lighting for Your Sydney Office

We all know what it’s like spending long days in the office with very little natural light – your eyes are tired, your body is exhausted, often you’ll have a headache, and the very last thing you feel like doing is going back to the office the next day to just repeat the whole process. 

Whether your office is at home, a small office in a commercial area or a large office in an industrial warehouse, lighting plays a huge role in productivity and alertness of you and your staff members. Having the right lighting can be a big difference between having staff who are getting through their tasks for the day and having staff who are struggling.

So, what are some of the best ways to light up your office to encourage productivity?

Pick the Right Colour Globes

You probably know from your home lighting that globes have varying shades of colour, from cool white to a warm colour, you will have your own preferences. However, in an office setting the best globes are fluro globes that provide the same colour temperature throughout. That means if you go for a cool colour globe in your conference room, you should have the same globes in your kitchen. 

Desktop Lighting

Despite having ceiling lighting, we know that if it is dark and stormy outside, the inside of your office feels just that bit darker. This is a great reason to utilise desk lighting or task lighting as well your normal lighting. Desktop lighting will provide staff members with some extra lighting on days they need it, as well as helping to cut down some of the glare on screens from fluro lights.  

Installing Lighting Correctly

You can choose the best colour globes and have your employees desks set up to get as much natural light as possible, but none of this is going to matter if your lighting isn’t installed correctly. We know that as business owners, you’re trying to save money where possible, but really it is more cost effective in the long run to have a qualified Sydney electrician install your office lighting.
