Good lighting is a key element of a successful garden office design. While most of the focus goes on the interior lighting, and this is certainly important. We’d like to encourage you to think about exterior lighting when you are planning your office building.
Factoring in exterior lighting isn’t expensive in the general scheme of things, but it is an element that many suppliers only offer as an optional extra. Because of this, some buyers overlook it as something they don’t really need, but exterior lighting brings a lot to the table.
Exterior lighting is obviously a practical design choice; it can illuminate your journey to and throw your garden office. It can also be a useful layer of additional security for your office, particularly if your lights are fitted with a movement sensor.
Exterior lighting also plays a key role in the appearance of a garden office, particularly in the evening and during the darker winter months. Garden office designers are clever at positioning lights which create a curtain of light along the front of the building or accentuate different design elements.
One garden office supplier who thinks that exterior lighting plays a key role in garden office design is Swift Garden Rooms. The photos on this page are just a sample of the way they are using external lighting as a design feature. As bespoke garden office designers, they will work with you to create a lighting system that works for you, and your building.
Swift Garden Rooms use lighting systems that can be operated remotely so that you can control the lights in and around your office from your house.
We’d really encourage you to talk to your garden office designer about exterior lighting. A few relatively cheap design choices will really enhance your building for years to come.
