Lighting & Flooring Can Affect the Mood and Value of Your Hotel
By Amy Locke Director, Interior Design, Hatchett Hospitality | May 06, 2010
What puts you in a good mood?
Hotel owners and designers are constantly looking for new answers to that question because they know today's travelers want their hotel to be as pleasing as their trip. Colors, music, and artwork are among the popular ways hoteliers try to create a special environment.
However, two especially effective techniques are within reach and under foot, literally - in the form of lighting and flooring.
Hotel lighting was once a "must have" basic function, but now lighting provides more than illumination - it complements furniture, architecture, and artwork; it saves energy; and it provides the finishing touch that brings a room to life.
With great lighting, even an ordinary room can look fabulous and can have a strong impact on making guests feel welcome.
