What are the considerations for effective hotel lobby lighting?

So, how can you illuminate your hotel lobby, in a way that will keep all your guests happy? Well, there are a number of things to consider, including:

  • The level of ambient light
  • Reception lighting
  • Intelligent lighting

Ambient lighting level for the hotel lobby

In the hotel lobby your guests may be waiting to check in, or check out, looking for important documents, waiting to leave for the day, or returning for the evening. So while there does need to be a good level of ambient light, light that is too bright can be uncomfortable. Uplighting can be the perfect way to achieve this, as the light is directed upwards, instead of down. This means you can illuminate the space to provide a comfortable amount of light, while also allowing eyes to adjust as they enter from outside. Wall lights can be a good option for this.

Reception lighting in the hotel lobby

As part of the hotel lobby, the reception desk is usually the main feature. You should consider using some brighter lighting around this area, to make it easier to see documents and find items. Spotlights or accent lighting around the desk can also be beneficial for making the desk a key feature.

Intelligent lighting for the hotel lobby

Intelligent lighting systems can dim or grow brighter depending on the level of light in the room. So in the morning you may not need the lights on at all, and in the evening you may need to turn the uplights up to provide a comfortable lighting level.
