People who mainly work at a computer often complain about daylight reflecting off of their screen. That's why, even when it is sunny outside, IT departments often draw the curtains and work in semi-darkness. Can you imagine working in these conditions every day, without the possibility of looking out the window and with no access to natural light? This situation is probably easier in the summer – the sun still shines when you leave your office, and there is plenty of time left before sunset. But what about in the winter?
Sunlight has an influence on our biological clock, so the lack of it can cause the daytime rhythm disorders and, as a result, cause insomnia or constant tiredness. This, in turn, significantly decreases employees' efficiency.
When designing an office, it is worth trusting the knowledge of experts – architects and designers, for whom natural and artificial light is key in interior arrangement. This will help you avoid situations when the light at employees' workstations will be insufficient.
