5 special ideas for contract lighting
LED lighting is making great strides every day, both in terms of the aesthetics of the products and their functionality.
In fact, it is very important that homes, rooms and stores are illuminated to their full potential.
How many times have we been unable to enjoy an experience because the light was too low or too strong?
What is contract lighting?
When we refer to contract lighting, we are focusing on particular types of light, such as lighting for restaurants or clubs.
This aspect has its importance not only with regard to the intensity and type of brightness that will be given to the store, but also to all those aesthetic choices that can really make a difference.
We can mention, for example, the arrangement of electrical outlets, or the placement of tables and chairs in the most illuminated points of the whole room.
So here are a few ideas to encourage contract lighting for hotels and various stores.
Putting the imagination first
If you have a venue and you’re looking for the right lighting for stores, an amazing idea is to imagine the different perspectives that the various pieces of furniture could have.
You can then study the different lights placed in the space and think about how they could enhance the quality of the rooms.
For example, if you have a low and narrow room, placing small but high intensity ceiling lights could help make the spaces and ceilings optically higher and larger.
Taking care of every little detail in the room
If, on the other hand, you want to enhance the focal points within your hotel, the best choice is to place light points where you think the room will gain.
Place small LED lights in the reception area and main entrances. Dim lights along all the hallways to create a super cozy family atmosphere.
Choose the lighting that best suits your decor
LED lighting is certainly very versatile because it is able to enhance classic furnishings or marked on a more modern style.
Obviously, some choices are more harmonious than others, and therefore, if your room has retro furniture, it is advisable to enhance them with lamps with a refined design or chandeliers of a certain importance.
If, on the other hand, the furnishings are all modern, spotlights and LED strips are definitely the most appropriate choice.
Give a little ‘liveliness with colored lights
If you want to change the look of your store and make it flashy without giving too much attention, placing colored LED strips will certainly bring some advantage.
Even in this case, do not overdo it, but limit yourself to place the LED strips only in strategic points.
Also try to respect a theme and do not juxtapose several colors without any logic, as the result could look like an eyesore.
Give everything the right color
Speaking of color, remember not to interfere too much with the reality of things.
If you have a restaurant, in fact, it is good to reserve the choice of colored LED lights only in areas where you do not come into close contact with customers, such as the entrance or the bar counter.
In the hall it is better to adopt neutral or white lights, as other types of LEDs could alter the color of the food and thus ruin the impact of the restaurant itself.
