Published Date: 08 Jun, 2022

"A successful project starts with light and ends with light". Hotel lighting should not only meet the use requirements of lighting space, but also create different atmospheres to affect people's emotions through the brightness and illumination of light. It is of great importance to integrate the lighting into the space, use the transformation of light and shadow to highlight the temperament and culture of the hotel, and create an elegant and comfortable environmental atmosphere for customers and employees.

Since lighting plays a very important role in hotel projects, what should we pay attention to when configuring hotel lighting?

AERO believes that the configuration of hotel lighting must be compatible with the indoor environment, and the integrity of the light environment in each area should be considered in the process of lighting installation. According to the division of areas, hotel lighting can be divided into entrance hall, lobby, reception desk, rest area, corridor, guest room and dining hall, and the lighting requirements of each area are also different.

1. Lighting in the entrance hall

A distinctive entrance hall can impress customers. Attention should be paid to the transition between the entrance hall and the external light environment, and highlight the hotel entrance with lights to create a warm environment. In order to better interpret the feeling of being at home, we should deliberately strengthen the psychological hint of "welcome".

2. Hotel lighting in the lobby

The illuminance of the lobby is not the brighter the better, but a hierarchical, continuous and fluctuating light and shade transition is formed through illuminance comparison, which adds an artistic sense to the welcoming atmosphere as a whole. The color temperature is mainly warm color (from 2700k to 3300K). The light and shadow with high saturation can not only give people a warm sense of belonging, but also highlight the magnificence and nobility of the hotel. The lighting should have high color rendering to perfectly show the artistic atmosphere of the lobby, restore the skin color and expression of guests, so as to leave a deep impression on guests.

3. Lighting in the reception desk

As an important communication and settlement center, the reception desk should pay attention to the following aspects in the overall hotel lighting: the guidance of lights can quickly attract guests’ attention to the reception desk; At the same time, it can strengthen the key projection of the reception desk, which can not only improve the work efficiency, but also highlight the decoration style, so that guests can understand the overall style of the hotel from a small perspective.

4. Lighting in the rest area

As a place for short rest and waiting, the rest area usually has decorative paintings, ornaments and works of art, so as to fill the space with a relaxed atmosphere and reduce the anxiety of guest. Here, spotlights are used to emphasize lighting to increase interest, and low light floor lamps and table lamps are used to create a comfortable rest environment.

5. Lighting in the corridor

The corridor is the link to different areas. Corridor lighting shall consider guidance and safety. Downlights or low-power spotlights are generally used, with lamp belts and wall lamps as decorative lighting to create a comfortable and warm atmosphere and a sense of hierarchy. Lighting attention should be paid to highlight important information, such as door number and important signal, so as to facilitate customers' check-in.

6. Lighting in the dining hall

Chinese restaurants are usually used for business or other formal banquets, so the overall hotel lighting atmosphere should be formal and friendly. The lighting of Chinese restaurant can be divided into two parts: public hall and balcony. The former emphasizes the uniformity and brightness of light, and the emotional fluctuation caused by brightness contrast is very small. As an independent lighting space, the latter emphasizes the relationship between light and shadow and desktop, and pays attention to creating a sense of hierarchy of space.

Western style restaurants are usually used for informal business dinners or acquainted friends. Therefore, the overall lighting atmosphere should be warm and romantic. The key lighting on the table top should make the dishes vivid and shining.

The multifunctional banquet hall is a high-level ceremonial place for entertaining distinguished guests or business partner. It not only reflects the courtesy to guests and friends, but also creates a luxurious, mysterious, romantic and pleasant atmosphere according to the requirements of guests.

7. Lighting in the guest room

Taking advantage of the warm and comfortable lighting effect can build the guest room into a warm “home”. For guests, the feeling of going back home will make them more cordial and relaxed. The indoor lighting shall be warm color, and the color temperature shall be 2400k-2700k. Bedside lamps are usually used for sleeping or reading. Glare and hand shadows should be avoided. Considering the differences in light comfort of different guests, it is best to set up a controlling panel and install it within the reach range after the guest lies down.
