What are the important considerations for installing lighting in hotel outbuildings?

If your hotel has any buildings in the grounds, that are detached from the main property, these are often called outbuildings. These can include summer houses and yurts that are often highly desirable for clients and guests. Installing lighting in these garden buildings, or even updating the existing lighting, can be a very effective option when updating your facilities and providing additional value for your guests. However, there are several important factors to bear in mind. These include:

  • Regulations and safety
  • The lighting style
  • Lighting positioning
