One concern for those designing the lighting in an office space is how to make sure that lighting is switched off in a timely manner to ensure that energy is economised as much as possible. Using sensors is one way to ensure that certain less-used parts of work premises are lit only when they are being used. This is not really ideal for office spaces, however, as a CFL lamp or LED bulkhead light fitting that flickers on and off whenever it senses a movement is distracting and very impractical in this type of work environment. Instead consider implementing a timer system so that all lights are switched off at the end of the work day. Lastly, consider implementing spot lighting for each of your employees, so that they can tailor their lighting to their task as they are working at their desks. This can be as simple and effective as a desk lamp fitted with a durable, energy efficient bulb.
Balcony, just because you do not have a traditional garden space, does not mean that you cannot have a gorgeous outdoor area. If you live in a flat or small town house and you have a balcony or courtyard, then you can use lighting to make the area bigger, brighter and more inviting. Take a look at the area and think about what you can do with it. Plants, flowers, hanging baskets and herb gardens can all be used in small areas. Take some measurements of the areas, corners and any railings on the balcony, then find some plants or furniture to fit. You might have colours in mind or styles, look for lighting that can be compact and cost effective. If you have the right walls and space, then outdoor wall lighting can help put a spark into the area.
