Improve Office Lighting and Mood

By September 27, 2022 Tenants

The character and quality of lighting in your workspace can help increase your productivity. Good lighting can improve your mood, raise energy and prevent eye strain

Natural light is key to improving mood. Getting as much natural light during the day as possible can ward off seasonal depression. 

Increase natural lighting to your office by adding mirrors and shiny objects made of glass, chrome or mirrored accents. Rooms painted in light colors of white, tan, or light gray bounce light off each other. Select a light color for upholstered furniture, adding color through accent pieces like pillows or throws. You may want to maximize the light from your windows by eliminating draperies and heavy curtains. 

For areas lacking natural light, consider adding light in the following ways:

  1. Avoid working under the direct glare of overhead lights. 
  2. Create task lighting. An adjustable desk lamp can put light exactly where you need it and support a variety of tasks. 
  3. Eliminate glare and shadows on your computer. Try to position light sources in front of you to avoid shadows. 
  4. Consider decorative office lighting. Accent lighting draws attention to elements in the room and provides visual appeal. 

Maximizing natural light and improving workspace lighting will provide your employees with a calm, welcoming environment that will make them healthier and more productive.
