Upgrading your commercial lighting system offers financial, aesthetic, and quality-of-life benefits for you, your employees, and your customers. New commercial lighting systems are designed to provide lasting performance while balancing aesthetics, ensuring your new lights integrate into your business’s interior design. You’ll find that upgrading your interior or exterior lights gives your space a new look and feel and is an investment that will last a long time.

Some of the primary benefits of commercial lighting include the following:

  • Reduced energy consumption and expenses, particularly with LED bulbs.
  • Increased lifespan, meaning you won’t have to worry about lights going out during service hours.
  • Increased light distribution and brightness, enhancing visibility and safety.
  • Increased ambiance and worker morale.
  • Reduced environmental impact and potential tax rebates for energy-efficiency upgrades.


Although lighting fixtures and control systems vary widely between different commercial environments, LED lighting is typically the most popular type of system. LEDs offer several advantages over traditional lighting technologies, from reduced energy consumption to enhanced lifespan and comfort.

With proper installation, LED lights can last from 50,000 to 100,000 hours, meaning you’ll have fewer maintenance costs and interruptions to your daily operations. LEDs are versatile and available in various forms, making them perfect for diverse commercial lighting needs. Lastly, they produce minimal heat and contain no hazardous chemicals, meaning you’ll reduce emissions and energy costs.


Commercial lighting upgrades are an excellent way to modify the appearance and curb appeal of your business without the hefty price tag of a renovation. However, there are several important considerations to ensure you maximize your return on investment and are thrilled with the appearance of your space. Consulting with lighting designers and contractors ensures a well-planned upgrade, but you can get started on your space before your consultation.

Here are some recommendations before upgrading your commercial lighting:

  • Assess your needs: Taking time to understand the pros and cons of your current lighting, identifying areas for improvement, and brainstorming potential solutions can help streamline your installation.
  • Consider efficiency upgrades: If you don’t have LED or smart lighting systems, consider how they might impact your business and determine if they’re right for you.
  • Understand your goals: It’s important to ask yourself why you’re upgrading your lighting. Is it to replace damaged systems? Do you want to improve the ambiance? Do you need additional security lighting? Having a clear picture can improve your experience with your lighting contractor.
  • Think about aesthetics and functionality: When considering lighting upgrades, don’t just pick a light fixture without considering the impacts it will have on your staff. If you need well-lit areas and want other spaces to have warmer lighting, make a note of that and discuss it with our design team.
  • Create a budget: Lighting replacements, particularly large-scale commercial projects, can quickly become expensive without a clear idea. Establish a budget for your project, communicate it to your contractor, and stick to it when selecting fixtures and systems.


Professional lighting installations are essential for updating your space, but that shouldn’t come at the cost of customer comfort or operational disruptions. The best way to avoid business disruptions is to consult with your lighting contractor and plan service to occur during off-hours or periods of low activity, including weekends, before work, or during scheduled closures.

It’s also a good idea to phase the installation process and address one section of your space at a time rather than completely replacing all parts of your business’s lighting simultaneously. Our team is well-versed in this approach and allows for continued functionality without downtime while we upgrade your lighting system. Proper coordination and communication are also essential, and providing notice to your employees and customers in advance of the installation can help manage expectations.

These days, smart lighting and automation seem to be all the rage. They boast unparalleled energy efficiency and allow for customized lighting schedules and intensity for different activities and times of the day. However, if you’re new to smart lighting, it may not be immediately clear how these systems work.

Here’s a simple breakdown of the way smart lighting systems operate:

  • Smart bulbs/luminaires: Smart light bulbs have a chip that allows for wireless communication between individual fixtures and a central control system.
  • Control system: This is usually a general hub that can be accessed and programmed through a dedicated mobile app or web browser. It uses wireless technology like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or Zigbee and allows you to control your system and individual lights remotely.
  • Sensors: Many smart lighting systems rely on motion sensors to detect movement and automatically turn lights on or off. Others use daylight sensors to adjust interior brightness levels, reduce energy waste, and create comfortable spaces.
  • Automation features: Your control system will allow you to create customized lighting routines and control lighting through your app or even using voice commands. You can choose colors, intensities, and patterns to align with your circadian rhythm or specific activities like watching movies.

Smart lighting systems use data analytics and machine learning to provide advanced customization features, but at their core, they’re meant to give you more control over your property’s ambiance and energy efficiency.


Many commercial lighting upgrades also address the integration of natural lighting. Natural light has several benefits for your finances and occupant well-being and is becoming more popular in restaurants and retail spaces. We can discuss approaches for bolstering your space’s natural light and can recommend specific products, fixtures, and systems to upgrade your interior.

Installing larger windows and skylights are two solutions that upgrade natural light. However, these can be expensive and disruptive to install. Incorporating light-colored shelving and glass partitions and investing in smart lighting to monitor ambient levels and adjust artificial lighting output are more cost-effective alternatives and can help integrate natural light into your business environment.
