How to welcome guests with quality hotel lighting

October 29, 2015 By Edel McCarron

Hotel lighting can be used to offer guests a warm welcome and comfortable stay. Here are some considerations when choosing hotel lighting.Hotel lighting plays a variety of functions. Not only does it aid visibility, it also offers your guests a warm welcome and comfortable stay. Some of the ways lighting can be used to add value to your guests’ experience include:
  • Providing ambience throughout the hotel
  • Giving guests a clear and safe path around the hotel
  • Highlighting points of interest in your hotel
When choosing hotel lighting the main areas you need to consider include:

Hotel room lighting

Your hotel guests need a range of lighting options in their room to be comfortable. Recessed ceiling lights with a dimmer option can provide functional lighting for the room while standard lamps and table lamps can provide more ambient lighting. When choosing lighting styles, we suggest limiting your lighting type so you can benefit from greater economies of scale.

Hall lighting

Recessed spotlights are standard within hotel corridors. Increasingly however, we are installing sign lighting to highlight room numbers. This installation technique not only provides more functionality, it can also create a more luxurious feel throughout your hotel. Example of hotel hall lighting at Hotel Titanic Liverpool

Reception lighting

Focal light fittings are recommended above the hotel reception to create an initial warmth and wow factor as guests enter your hotel. Back-lights behind a reception desk will automatically draw your guests’ eyes towards the reception area, giving them a clear and welcoming direction when they enter your hotel lobby.

Dining room / bar lighting

By installing ambient light fixtures in these areas you will encourage your guests to use your dining and bar facilities and feel more welcome in your hotel. Recessed ceiling and wall lights which can be controlled by a dimmer switch can provide sufficient lighting for both day and night, while additional decorative lighting features will add a touch of class.
