Click tip: Hotel room lighting
How to make guests feel at home
The right lighting helps ensure that hotel guests feel comfortable in their rooms and can work there efficiently. Because a hotel room is used largely at night, the lighting concept is an important factor. In addition to general lighting, which facilitates orientation, individual luminaires should be provided to set accents in the room and create an agreeable atmosphere.
The luminaires need to be well matched. They also need to be designed to avoid deep shadows, lack of shadows and glare. A professional lighting management system with programmed lighting scenes is ideal for meeting even the highest standards of comfort and convenience.
