Lighting public spaces such as restaurants, hotels and offices is a science as well as an art. Your Forecast Lighting retailer can offer expert advice and planning for a wide range of public spaces. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
When designing decorative lighting solutions for restaurants, consider staggered height pendants to break up the plane and create an aesthetically pleasing environment in the entire room and add smaller or interesting compliments in the seating booth areas or reception or wall areas. This provides the continuity throughout the restaurant and a creative centerpiece in addition to general lighting.
Hotel reception lighting
Reception areas in hotels or businesses serve a multi-purpose function that should provide general illumination to compliment the staff behind the reception desk while also generating enough light to sign a registration book or confirm charges. In a hotel reception environment, the benefit of adjustable LED pendants are two-fold in that they provide directional beam spread to complete the tasks required as well as creating an eye level “marquee” calling attention to guests entering a large lobby area and are seeking directions to complete their registration or meet their scheduled appointment.
Hotel bathroom lighting
To attract repeat hotel customers in the current competitive marketplace, many hotel chains are renovating and updating their guest rooms to include up to date colors, trends, and finishes. They are also seeking opportunities to achieve cost savings through energy efficient lighting audits and retrofits versus complete renovations. Consider tying both together with energy efficient bath vanity strips that include complimentary trim and fabric swatch finishes that coordinate with updated interior fabrics and finishes.Back to top
