Successful Businesses--Choosing Commercial Lighting

Posted on: 21 July 2015

Choosing the right kind of commercial lighting plays a big part in running a successful business and keeping customers happy. Saving money should never be more important than installing the correct lighting for your situation from day one. The following are some ideas for three major industries and their commercial lighting.

Office Lighting 

Lighting plays a huge role in the office and how well employees can perform. A well lit office with softer light will keep office workers from straining their eyes while handling daily tasks. New advances in fluorescent lighting mean you can save on the office energy bill and provide pleasant lighting in a variety of hues for your employees. 

Store Lighting 

Lighting in a store can be the difference between someone coming in or not. There are two popular options for retail stores in regards to lighting:

  • Track Lighting
  • Florescent Pattern Lighting 

Track lighting is great to highlight certain items or sale areas. Light draws a customer's attention automatically. Fluorescent pattern lighting is designed to light retail spaces in a pleasing manner. Light does have great function and can add aesthetic value to any store space. 

Restaurant Lighting

Restaurants may be the commercial space in which lighting plays the biggest role of all. Lighting varies heavily depending on the design and intent of a particular restaurant. Have you ever walked into a romantic restaurant and seen stark white fluorescent lighting running along the ceiling? Probably not, and for good reason. Lighting sets moods and inspires emotions. 

Many restaurants will have three types of commercial lighting all at once. Dim overhead lights provide illumination to the entire space, keeping wait staff and servers moving quickly and efficiently. Accent lighting on the walls gives the entire space a modern and matching look. Accent lighting is great as it can be installed with controls to brighten or dim the lights depending on the time of day and desired feel.

Finally, romantic pendant lighting over each table adds a touch of elegance to any dining experience.

Saving on Energy Costs 

Cost of lighting should always be secondary to the fact that lighting must meet the appropriate needs of customers or employees. However, that doesn't mean you can't make smart choices to keep costs low. Advances in LED lighting with commercial application can save big on energy. Make sure to explore all your options with a qualified contractor to find the perfect lights for your commercial space.
