In the hospitality industry, appearance is everything. And the right lighting can make or break that appearance. Direct lighting, from the ceiling pointing down at the floor is one of the most common types of lighting used. But this shouldn’t be your only form of lighting. Task lighting, uplighting and accent lighting all play an important role in drawing the eye, and creating a space with the right kind of atmosphere. As does wall lighting. So, how can wall lighting illuminate your hotel? And where should wall lighting be used? Well, here at Walker Electrical, we are Preston’s leading lighting and electrical professionals. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about wall lighting in your hotel.
How can wall lighting illuminate your hotel?
So, how can you use wall lighting to create the perfect effect in your hotel? Well, there are a number of things you can consider, including:
- Using wall lighting in halls- corridors in hotels tend to be fairly long, and they all look the same. Using wall lighting intermittently can be very stylish and attractive, adding visual interest to what can be a boring stretch. And if you’re concerned about your energy bill, you could consider installing motion sensitive wall lighting too.
- Using wall lighting in stairwells- wall lighting in stairwells creates a stunning effect, illuminating the walls and possibly the handrail. You can choose to lighting these in a range of colours too, so that they match your hotel branding.
- Using wall lighting in bedrooms- finally, you could opt for wall lighting in bedrooms, to add a lower level of light, or task lighting, for when your guests require it. This can help to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
