Steps to take into account in the lighting of a hotel.
At the end of the article we show you how to do it
First the design, style and atmosphere that we want to offer the guest and the image of the hotel that we want to project for this the lighting must be in accordance with the values and philosophy of the hotel, architectural structure of the spaces and natural light playing with the optimal color combinations on the walls, structures and furniture that will give us an approximate idea of the amount of luminaires that each space will need.
Lightweight materials and matte finishes will maximize the benefits of natural light in areas illuminated by the sun’s rays, while light walls and highly reflective finishes will maximize the effectiveness of your lighting system.
