businesspeople in boardroom: Texadia Commercial AV blog

Boardrooms can be one of the most difficult places to figure out in the area of lighting. These spaces are used for a wide variety of meetings and events, so the lighting has to be able to accommodate each of them should the need arise.

Whether you’re doing a high-tech presentation or brainstorming your next big project, the lighting needs to be right. If it’s not, it can be distracting and cut down on productivity. It can also leave a bad impression on a potential client or partner.

This article from TDK Consulting explains: “First impressions are indeed lasting, and the aesthetic quality of a room can have an impact on both the productivity of boardroom meetings and how your company is perceived by others.”

In order to create the best atmosphere for your business’s boardroom or conference room, here are some aspects to take into careful consideration when deciding on the right lighting for your space:

  • Brightness and Intensity: One of the most important things is to make sure your lighting is easily adjusted by adding an architectural dimming system. If you’re in the middle of a meeting and need to share a presentation, you’ll want to be able to dim the lights so that everyone can see the presentation clearly. Making sure this is a smooth and quick transition makes your business look more professional.
  • Focus and Productivity: Lighting also has a big impact on how much focus and productivity people have during a meeting. For example, if you put florescent lights in a boardroom, your team will most likely have trouble focusing and may even get headaches from the harshness of the lighting.
