Lighting design is becoming a popular demand in today’s commercial environments. Architects and employers are working their best to meet perfection at business premises. Even if other aspects are designed perfectly, they cannot be impressed with bad lighting. The following are factors to consider when choosing commercial lighting.


Commercial sectors need to pick the lighting system, which is easy to afford from installation to maintenance. You should therefore consider buying wholesale light fixtures that meet your commercial lighting needs that come at a reduced price.

Consumption cost and bulb maintenance should also be feasible to the business’s financial capabilities. It is good to choose energy-efficient long-life bulbs to avoid frequent bulb replacements and huge electricity bills. If the commercial premise allows, try maximizing natural light as much as possible.


Consider lighting systems that create the right mood you want to set on the premises. Is the mood welcoming, exciting or relaxing? Furthermore, the lighting should be appropriate to the space, enhance existing features, and highlights points of interest.

Proper lighting creates a welcoming atmosphere that has a psychological impact on business customers. Enhanced looks of business premises have a positive impact on the competitiveness of your business.


Every business expects to reduce maintenance costs to a possible minimum. To achieve this, select lighting equipment made from quality materials.

It is better to pay more expenses for the purchase and installation of quality lighting systems that look good and last longer.

Heat load

Depending on the type of business, consider lighting equipment that should not overheat the premise. Too much heat load may cause comfort issues for your clients, thus harming business competitiveness. Businesses in cold regions may need lighting systems that also generate heat for the rooms.

Light output

Where possible, choose lighting that has increased light output and is more cost-efficient. You can also consider installing an integrated building control management system, which can monitor your energy consumption and automate controls. Some environments need bright lighting while others require to deem lighting.

Choose a reputable company

When buying wholesale light fixtures, choose a vendor with the best reputation and who has been in the market for quite a long time. Choose quality labels whose products have passed the quality and safety tests. This light equipment will last long, thus avoiding frequent replacements.

You can research the vendors’ previous clients. Find out the scope of lighting projects, what they have done, and if they have experience installing in a business industry like yours.

For instance, if you are a food and beverage facility, do not go for a vendor experienced in lighting up gas and fuel stations. The company you choose should be able to guide and support you through lighting design, analysis of energy savings up to installations, and maintenance.
