What are the important staircase lighting considerations for hotels?
When designing the right staircase lighting for your hotel stairways, there are a number of things to consider. These include:
- The lighting level
- The height of the lighting
- The colour of the lighting
Choosing the right lighting level for hotel staircases
Hotel staircases need to be fairly well lit to ensure the safety of all your guests. However bright lights for hotel staircases can be overwhelming and off-putting, and they can detract from the overall decor of the interior design. Finding the right balance and the right level for your hotel can be a bit of an experiment. It is important that the lighting is bright and warm without being too harsh or uncomfortable. The lighting level can also be made adjustable to change brightness level depending on the time of day and background lighting.
Choosing the right lighting height for hotel staircases
In any hotel the main focus is on interior design. Creating a hotel with a unique decor can really promote the hotel brand, and create a more professional and stylish finish. As a result, any lighting you choose also needs to fit within the bounds of your decor choices and support these. This means you should choose light fixtures and lighting installation types that are most effective for your space. For staircase lighting in hotels, you can choose wall lighting to create an ambient level of background lighting that can be stylish and contemporary. You can also choose LED lights for the stairs themselves for an ultra modern and well lit result. Alternatively you can stick to more traditional ceiling downlights with well chosen light fixtures to create the perfect finish.
Choosing the lighting colour for hotel staircases
Hotel staircase lighting does not need to be restricted to simple white or yellow lighting colours. depending on your hotel branding and interior decor you can choose staircase lighting and a range of colours including reds greens and blues.
