Calgary Commercial Lighting: Design and Style Options

Last month we blogged about the importance of effective lighting in commercial spaces. If that information inspired you to start considering renovating your lighting setup, the next step should involve research on the best options, which can include taking a look at popular trends in the way experts design lighting for commercial spaces.

Innovative developments in Calgary commercial lighting this year include:

  • Smart lighting
  • An increase in eco-friendly options
  • Lighting designed for mood and productivity
  • The use of natural light
  • Minimalist and industrial style fixtures 

These commercial lighting trends aren’t just passing fads: they can have a significant impact on the atmosphere of a space, which can increase productivity, energy efficiency, or even sales.

Smart Lighting: Greater Interactivity and Connectivity

Smart lighting is a lighting technology designed for energy efficiency and has built in Wi-Fi connectivity which allows the lights to be:

  • Operated remotely
  • Programmed to turn on and off at certain times of the day
  • Customized for a more productive environment

This innovative commercial lighting technology allows you to check and access your lights no matter where you are in the world, keeping you in control and your energy costs down.


Calgary Commercial Lighting Goes Green: LED is an Eco-Friendly Option

With the costs of commercial LED lighting in Calgary and other cities dropping, many businesses and commercial spaces are taking the opportunity to switch to commercial LED lights.

Thanks to their durability, long lifespan and energy efficiency, commercial LED lighting can be used in many settings including offices, retail shops, hospitals and schools.

LED Benefits Include:

  • Lower energy consumption
  • Extended life
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Adaptability
  • Versatility

The Use of Natural Light

Harnessing natural light can make a space more cheerful, while also bringing significant energy savings. To maintain a constant level of lighting as the day goes on, lighting can be combined with a sunlight-sensing lighting control system that gradually increases the amount of lighting as daylight fades.

Improve Commercial Lighting Through:

  • Skylights
  • Removing cubicles and other dividers
  • Using artificial light as a supplement
  • Keeping ‘productivity centres’ near windows

Don’t Forget Style: Trends in Lighting Fixtures

While lighting design is important, certain commercial spaces such as stores, restaurants, and offices may also seek out lighting design that is both functional and stylish. Choosing lighting fixtures that match well with the decor can help contribute to a cohesive and stylish look for a space.

This year, popular trends for lamps and lighting fixtures include:

  • Warm-toned metallic finishes like gold and brass
  • Clean lines
  • Minimalist or industrial shapes
  • Retro-inspired designs
  • Many interior decor experts are also embellishing wall plates using unexpected finishes or details
