The answer depends on the function of the room and the level of lighting you need. For example, a good office lighting level is around 400-450 lux, but for workshops, you should aim for a light level of around 600 lux.
We’ve worked through a couple of examples below, based on recent custom lighting projects we’ve completed. These are basic designs for a 10m x 10m room.
The example to the right has 16 x 26w LED Panels, the ceiling is 3m high and the work plane is 0.75m (standard desk height).
This will provide you with a nice even lux level between 250-440 lux across the room, making it a perfect office lighting level.
This design has 24 x 26w LED Panels. Again, the ceiling is 3m high and the work plane is 0.75m (standard desk height).
This will provide you with a nice even lux level around 600 lux across the room, ideal for workshops or similar working environments.

You can browse our LED Panels in our Office Lighting. Over time LED panels have become for efficient, now producing much more light per watt than pervious versions, see our latest 600 x 600 26W Ultra Efficient LED Panel.
We also supply the LED Panel Surface Mounting Kit, allowing them to be used in spaces that do not have a recessed ceiling.
