The impact of lighting in different spaces

When we walk into a public space, we first notice the visual appeal of our surroundings. In fact, we also absorb how our environments make us feel upon entering.

This visual appeal and “aura” are created by a combination of architecture, decoration and furniture, as well as the natural and artificial lighting in the area.

Hotel lobby with warm lighting

Consider the atmosphere in hotels, spas and restaurants versus the cooler tones found in a home or office.

Hospitality settings persuade a welcoming and calm mood while commercial offices and stores activate awareness and draw your attention to key areas.

The way we perceive light affects how we associate different settings with various feelings. With effective LED lighting solutions, we can maximize the visual experience in any environment.

Lighting in different settings

Firstly, ambient lighting is used in commercial offices to brighten spaces and boost energy. Cool tones and blue light (4000K) lifts mood and reduces fatigue. Thus, productivity and performance are improved.

Bright and cool light are also found in many retail stores. Retail lighting illuminates specific areas and merchandise. This tactic heightens customer moods and encourages the desire to make a purchase.

Commercial lighting in car dealership

Consider the last time you visited a car dealership. The vehicles and service desks are illuminated as focal points. The space is bright with big windows and plenty of natural light. These settings enforce awareness and alertness.

Natural light activates a response from our “internal clock” which makes us feel awake and present. For this reason, natural light is leveraged in a range of commercial, residential and retail spaces.

In all, lighting can be used to generate a unique environment and deliver a memorable customer experience.

Restaurants, Hotels and Spas

In contrast, accent lighting is found in spaces like restaurants, bars, hotels and spas.

Typically, warm color temperatures (2700K, 3000K, 3500K) are used in leisure settings. This creates a comfortable atmosphere to enrich the earthy, red tones.

Accent lighting draws attention by illuminating decorations and displays that contribute to the environments aesthetic.

However, brighter light is still valuable in these settings, depending on the purpose of the space. Cooler tones are favorable for casual and breezy atmospheres.

For instance, coffee shop customers will settle in a seat to work, study or socialize during the day. Thus, these settings are brighter and naturally lit compared to dinner restaurants or bars.
