What are the important considerations for hotel room lighting design?

when designing the lighting for any hotel room, there are a number of considerations to take into account. These include both practical considerations and those that enhance the interior design and the visual design of the space. Some of the most important considerations include:

  • The lighting level
  • Light switch location
  • Types of lighting

Achieving the right lighting level for hotel rooms

In a hotel bedroom, choosing the right lighting level is important. The lighting cant be too bright as this will be overwhelming in the space. At the same time, in a smaller space not enough lighting will result in the room looking dark and dingy and smaller than it really is. Achieving the right lighting level will involve combining different lighting types and positioning the lighting around the room.

Choosing the right light switch location for hotel rooms

One of the practical considerations to consider in terms of your hotel room lighting is the location of the light switches. These need to be positioned in practical places around the room to ensure a positive client experience. Light switches by the hotel door are a must as these will allow the room to be illuminated immediately on entry. Light switches next to the bed can also be a very practical consideration, for ease of turning the lights off before bed.

Choosing the right right types of lighting for hotel rooms

In a hotel room different types of lighting will need to be combined to ensure that the lighting level is correct, and to make sure that there is appropriate lighting for different purposes. Task lighting can be important for reading or completing paperwork and will need to be installed near the bed or the desk. Accent lighting can also be used to add visual style and interest to the hotel room too.
