Designing effective lighting for hotel bedrooms
So, when designing the lighting for your hotel bedrooms, there are some things to consider. These include:
- Task areas- In the hotel bedroom you should offer your customers more than just a simple direct lighting option. Instead, you should provide a range of lighting options, including task lighting for lighting in areas where tasks will be completed. This could include around the tea and coffee making facilities, or around the dressing table. It’s also a good idea to provide task lighting close to the headboard of the bed, for guests that might want to read.
- Lighting level- in a hotel bedroom, the lighting doesn’t need to be too bright, as this will be overpowering for your guests. However, without enough lighting your room might look dark and dingy. So providing the right balance of lighting is important for your guests, and for the reputation of your company.
- Lighting control- your guests will expect more than just an on/off option from your hotel. So why not provide dimming lights, with switches close to the bed for easy access in the morning?
