A low ceiling in your Sydney office can present a number of problems.
It’ll probably make your office feel smaller and it will certainly create issues with properly lighting your office space.
This in turn can mean a darker workplace, which affects the concentration of your staff, as well as their happiness at work.
Therefore, it’s absolutely essential that you do what you can to accentuate the light in your low-ceiling office.
Install Low Profile Lights
Low profile lights are ones that don’t stick out of your ceiling.
It’s important that when the ceiling in your office is already low, you install lighting fixtures that aren’t going to protrude too much.
By utilising low profile fixtures, you’ll avoid making your ceiling feel even lower, which can have a negative effect on your staff.
This is something you must consider when thinking about your Sydney office fit-out.
Paint Your Ceiling White
A low ceiling will make your office seem darker.
One solution, however, is to paint your ceiling white. This will maximise the illusion of having higher ceilings in the office.
Moreover, the colour white is far more effective at bouncing light throughout your office space, making it feel much brighter.
It’s best to consult with a Sydney office design company when thinking about painting your space, to make sure the job is done properly.
Consider Removing Your Suspended Ceiling
If your office has a suspended ceiling and it feels rather low, removing the suspended ceiling to expose the original ceiling is an option.
This is especially popular when it comes to industrial style office design.
At Niche Projects, we can easily remove your suspended ceiling to provide more space for light, airflow and aesthetics.
We’re sure you won’t regret it, especially when you consider the immense benefits that more light in the office come with.
Ensure Lights are Above Eye Level
There’s nothing worse for your employees than having glare from low hanging lights constantly distracting them.
This can happen in an office with an especially low ceiling.
Therefore, it’s imperative you avoid any chance of this happening by having your lights installed well above eye level.
At Niche Projects, we can install a variety of LED lighting solutions as part of your Sydney office fit-out.
Moreover, if you have a particularly low ceiling, we’ll make sure that the lighting fixtures are installed to entirely avoid glare.
