The type of lighting will affect an employee's motivation and focus level. Harsh fluorescent lighting can cause headaches and may hurt your eyes after staring at your computer for a long period of time. Light affects your mood too.
Nothing beats natural lighting. Good lighting can bring out the design of your office and give it a vibrant look.
Position your desks to be exposed to as much natural sunlight as possible. Keep decorations away from your table to allow more light to shine through.
You will need a good mix of artificial lighting as well. Along with overhead lighting, you can use a few table lamps and floor lamps. They are functional and they make your office look more classy.
Pay more attention to the quality of light you purchase. Invest more money on lighting that helps to protect your employee's eyes and extend their focus.
Remember to change your old tungsten bulbs with quality, flicker-free ones that will not distract you when you are at work. Choose bulbs with a warm bright light that is not too white, which is more suitable for your eyes.
