What are the important considerations when designing entrance lighting for hotels?

For any hotel, the entrance lighting can be an important factor for setting the right tone, and making a great first impression. But there are a number of factors to consider, to ensure the right results. These include:

  • Lighting tone- while bright lights can be sure to grab attention, these are often not practical for entrance areas. This is because when guests enter your hotel in the evening, the contrast between the dark outside to the brightness of the light can be uncomfortable and even hurt the eyes. As a result, you should opt for a lighting tone that isn’t too bright, but still provides the right amount of light for practical and style purposes.
  • Lighting colour- to make your hotel entrance stand out and be vibrant, you could consider the lighting colour itself. Lighting can be all manner of colours, and multiple colours can even be used together. This helps create visual interest and helps your hotel entrance really stand out. It can be effective to use colourful lights for wall lights and other uplights, instead of the traditional downlights.
  • Lighting features- the hotel entrance can really benefit from lighting features that are used as part of visual design. These could be created using patterned lights, colour washing and through the combination of lighting types.
