Who says your office must be bland? When it comes to office design, whether in your commercial premises or in the creation of a home office, design can contribute towards productivity as well as the aesthetic presentation of the space. A well-lit room with good air circulation and a harmonious collection of colours can elevate the productivity of the user and can make the space more presentable.
And the best way to do this, in our opinion, is with pendant lights.
Why we love office pendant lights
When you install pendant lighting in an office environment, you immediately soften the space and instil a more relaxing environment to work in. Adding pendant lighting is also a great way of finetuning the vibe that you are going for in terms of décor, with more traditional fittings creating a timeless and elegant aesthetic while the more modern clear glass pendants contribute towards a bright and airy space.
Another benefit of pendant lighting is the versatility in terms of which fitting you opt for – whether it’s a single-drop pendant or a cluster of multi-drop fittings designed to really fill a space. Pendant lights are as decorative as they are functional, and so finding the right balance between the light and your surrounding space is key to achieving a well-designed office.
What do you need to consider when selecting an office pendant light?
Dressing an office is different to dressing any other room in the home, as it requires emphasis on the productivity of the space as well as its design, and how amenable it is to concentration and focus. Ideally, any light that you install in an office needs to create the illusion of a bright and airy environment at all hours – meaning that those using the space can feel awake and alert day or night.
In addition, with office furnishings often relegated to a desk, an office chair, and storage spaces, it can be easy to overwhelm the space with a large pendant light fitting – with designers and customers needing to again focus on the balance of the room and how best to select a pendant light which works within the surrounding environment.
Finally, it’s important to consider the colour palette of your office and which metallic fitting and glass tone finish will suit the space. Whether you opt for the monochromatic colour scheme of a modern office or keep it more traditional with copper-based colours and lightly tinted glass, the colour of the glass and fitting can alter the way the light shines around the room. This impacts the practical use of the space as well as its look, and so is an important consideration in selecting the perfect light for you.
