Lighting plays a critical part in the design and operation of any hotel or restaurant, and can be instrumental in creating that first impression that brings them back time and time again to your venue. For hotel operators looking to differentiate their property and set a specific mood and ambience, providing high quality lighting fit for the task is essential. Lobbies, guest rooms and bathrooms, corridors, restaurants and bars, and special event areas. Each require that correct choices are made in light fixtures to match the intent of the designer, with a purpose of maximizing customer experience and retention while also saving on energy costs. This, of course, has a positive impact on the bottom line performance of the facility.
In the restaurant business, similar to hotels, lighting is essential in creating a great first impression, setting the mood and can help to drive repeated business. Quality of light can have an impact on how the customer sees and perceives their food such as ‘is the meat too rare to eat?’ or ‘is it overcooked?’ Equally important is creating a good work environment in the kitchen and one that allows the chefs and workers the ability to evaluate what food is fresh and safe to prepare for customers. Lighting with a high CRI and a high R9 value, essential for red tones such as raw meat are critical to achieve maximum performance.
