The light customers or clients will see products in, the light under which new projects unfold, the light deals are made and sealed under in board rooms, the light under which the finest details are put into place. Not only is light a necessity for our functioning, but it creates the ambiance that will influence every person seeped in it. Therefore, commercial light construction should be paramount in the planning and designing of any commercial space.
What is the most appropriate choice of light fixture for the space?
Board rooms and meeting rooms will be fine with practical lighting fixtures, but dining areas in fine restaurants should set the scene for a more elegant story and the lights in a jewelry shop ought to dance off every angle of every gemstone in the place.
When will the lights be on and for how long?
This is an important consideration in choosing the type of bulbs to install. Fluorescent lights are energy-efficient and often work well if they will be on for an extended period of time, but they will need to warm up and turning them off and on a lot burns them out faster. LED lights are also energy-efficient and don’t need to warm up. Regardless of what kind of bulbs you choose, there are nearly endless fixture style choices to meet the need.
Where will the fixtures and switches be placed?
Where will the light fixture do the best service: up close to individuals, lighting an immediate space, or do they need to be farther away, lighting a larger more general area? Switches need to be easy to locate and accessible only to those who need to be controlling the lighting. Also, in cases of multiple light fixtures, it needs to be clear what switch controls which lights.
How will the light from a fixture in one area interact with other light sources and how will they (or will they not) work together?
Where is it okay or even desirable for a slight shadow to fall? Better check out how the light will interact with other light sources such as natural lighting through windows or light fixtures in other rooms or hallways.
