Lighting can help to set the mood and it is also critical to have the right amount of lighting for customer and employee setting. While there are a wide variety of lighting options out there, LED lighting is an incredible option because it offers clear and consistent lighting, it is energy efficient, saves you money on maintenance costs, and is extremely safe for the environment. The use of LED lights in restaurants and hotels is growing in popularity. While more expensive to purchase, they are 300 per cent more energy-efficient than fluorescent lighting, and 1,000 per cent more energy-efficient than incandescent bulbs. They also use up to 90 per cent less energy and last significantly longer than other lighting solutions. Track lights with LED bulbs can be used to create various moods and colours. For example, they can highlight the bar area in red, and the dining room in a more relaxing blue. LED lighting will never flicker and there is no "warming up period like traditional CFL bulbs. Most modern LED lighting is also completely dimmable. This is great for restaurants because it makes it extremely easy to set the mood for a night at the restaurant and the lighting can then be turned up for employee meetings, which makes it extremely easy to give your restaurant multiple purposes. Dimmable lighting is also perfect for hotels because it allows the customers to set the mood in the room to whatever they want. They can turn up the lighting to read together or turn the lights down for a romantic night together.
