Lighting is an important consideration when designing a hotel. The challenge most hotels face in creating a lighting plan is finding the right balance of color and intensity for each space from a single source. In addition to guest rooms and common areas, hotels may have dining and lounge areas, meeting rooms, pool and fitness facilities, and event space. The hotel’s exterior needs sufficient lighting for guest safety and security. Not to mention a hotel is a 24-hour operation, and you must consider the guests’ comfort and the hotel staff’s wellness and productivity. Each space in a hotel has specific lighting requirements, from cozy and warm to bright and clear, or requires the ability to transition the lighting for different circumstances easily.
LED lighting gives hotels flexible options to create the right ambiance. LED lighting fixtures and bulbs come in many shapes and styles, so you don’t have to sacrifice design for efficiency. Let’s explore the most versatile hotel LED lighting solutions.
LED Disk Light
The LED disk light is a straightforward, adaptable light used in hallways, meeting rooms, stairways, corridors, and closets. LED disk lights are low-profile ceiling-mounted lights that blend effortlessly with any room décor. Because it is UL wet location listed, it can be used in high-humidity areas, such as bathrooms and indoor pool areas. EarthTronics LED disk light features five color options for ultimate versatility throughout your hotel.
LED Slim Downlight
LED slim downlight fixtures are a recessed downlight option installed in ceilings. They have become the standard choice for residential and office spaces due to their warm, clear lighting. LED downlights are also dimmable to change a room’s brightness level easily. An LED slim downlight is an excellent option for hotel guest rooms, bathrooms, and common areas. They can even be used to highlight specific spaces, like a seating area or piece of artwork. EarthTronics LED slim downlights are available in multiple sizes and lumen options. They have five light color sections, so you’ll have the proper lighting for each installation, and a dimmer switch can control them. They are also wet location rated.
LED Standard A19 Bulb
LED standard A19 bulbs are classic pear-shaped bulbs that can be used in virtually any fixture. LED A-bulbs come in various sizes and wattages to fit a wide range of existing fixtures. There is also a ‘smart bulb’ option that can be controlled remotely via a smart or Wi-Fi connected device, allowing you to adjust light color and brightness easily. LED A bulbs have multiple applications in a hotel, from hallway and dining area wall light fixtures to guest room desks and floor lamps. They also work well for table lamps in lobby seating areas.
LED Wall Packs
LED wall packs provide dusk to dawn security lighting on the exterior of your hotel building. LED wall packs provide wide flood area illumination around your building. They can be used to illuminate pedestrian walkways, sidewalks, and parking spaces near your building, including the motor lobby. They can also provide security lighting for outdoor pool and patio areas. EarthTronics LED wall packs come in several lumens, wattage, and color options, have a built-in daylight sensor to turn on and off automatically, and are built to withstand varying weather conditions.
LED Adjustable Wall Packs
LED adjustable wall packs have the same features as a traditional wall pack, but the fixture can be adjusted from 0-90 degrees to illuminate a specific area. The adjustable wall pack allows you to customize the lighting range to focus on a particular area, add extra security to corners or dark spaces, and illuminate a wider area. Adjustable wall packs can be mounted up or down to create dynamic exterior lighting without sacrificing safety and security.
LED Area Lights
LED area lights are pole-mounted lights used to illuminate a large space. Hotels can use area lights in parking areas or large outdoor spaces, such as pools, patios, or yard spaces. Are lights can also be used around sidewalks and property borders for added safety and security. Area lights come in several wattages and lumen options, depending on the brightness level you need for your application, and feature a dusk-to-dawn sensor.
LED Lighting Efficiency
Most hotels remain open 24 hours a day, so lighting is used almost continuously in the lobby, common areas, hallways, and employee areas. Because of its efficiency, cost savings, and low maintenance requirements, LED lighting is an optimal choice for hotel retrofits or new builds. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, LEDs use at least 75% less power than incandescent bulbs and last up to 25 times longer. LED lighting also produces less heat, making it easier to control the temperature inside your hotel for a more comfortable guest experience.
Particularly in a hotel, where you need both ambiance and warmth in rooms, bars, or restaurants, and brighter lighting for conference rooms and lobbies, it’s essential to invest in lighting that can work for you. The balance of lighting color and intensity required for hotel space can be achieved with the broad selection of EarthTronics LED lighting products.
