Why is Light an Important Element of Interior Design?
When you are building a commercial space or remodeling your current business premises, you may not give much thought to the lighting. This is a grave mistake. You will not have the right balance that you’re looking for in the workplace if you don’t put a lot of thought into the lighting that you have throughout it. There are a few different types of lighting that you will want to utilize as you highly the architectural elements and create a space that is productive. You will also want to think about natural lighting and how you can utilize that as well to get the overall look and feel you’re looking for in your business.
Different Types of Commercial Lighting
There are three different types of lighting that can help you create a balanced feeling in your workplace. Following is a description of each of these types of lighting.
– Task Lighting: This lighting is the most important in a workplace. It can help to illuminate the commercial kitchen more fully in a restaurant. It can also be found right over a desk area where office work will be taking place. This type of lighting is helpful in giving you the light needed to do tedious tasks.
– Ambient Lighting: This is the main lighting found throughout the business premises. When you flip the switches on by the door, you will be turning on the ambient lighting that gives the space the overall light that allows you to see where you are going. It should be able to light the space on its own without the help of any other light sources.
– Accent Lighting: If you are trying to highlight the architecture or design elements that are found throughout the workplace, you would do it with the help of accent lighting. It can also be used to draw eyes to a particularly beautiful piece of art for example. Accent lighting can bring a dramatic flair to any space if it is properly utilized.
