Outdoor restaurant and hotel outdoor lighting systems are often bland, and frequently fail to adequately illuminate parking areas, pathways, gates, entrances and exits. There is also the safety aspect to consider. Badly lit external public areas can conceal tripping hazards that could conceivably lead to injury claims. There is an easy solution to this.
Why Outdoor Lighting Systems?
Commercial premises such as hotels and restaurants cannot take chances with hazards in the area around their premises – even ‘Beware’ signs are unacceptable in many countries, states or regions. Even if this does not apply to you, you can save a lot of bother by providing adequate lighting in your car parks, pathways and entrances. This is what we at NightVision offer.
We can light up all of these areas where it appropriate to do so. You can find many companies online that will offer to do this, but few of these have our expertise in landscape lighting. We are also well known for our accent lighting. We can meet even the most exacting requirements of our clients in and around Georgia.
Here are some of the services with which we excel and that you will never regret using.
Illuminate Your Premises
First your premises – the building itself – the structure of your hotel, motel or restaurant. You don’t want people hunting for you in the dark. You should have it lit up so it’s visible for literally miles – without upsetting the neighbors! If your business is being run in an old traditional building, with stone walls and traditional windows, then we can illuminate these walls and highlight the windows with light.
You can go for normal white light or use light of many different colors. Maybe red, green or blue light highlighting the windows and main entrance door, and normal white light illuminating the walls of the building. They need not be over-bright, and often a softer level of light works best with such types of business. Discuss it with us and together we are sure to come up with an ideal lighting solution for you.
You want illumination, but you also want to persuade people driving by that this would be a place worth stopping at for dinner or even a bed for the night. Make your hotel or restaurant easy to find by using landscape and accent lighting.
Accent Lighting: Highlight Your Entrances and Pathways
You can use a combination of landscape lighting and accent lighting to highlight the entrance to your premises and also to display the driveways and footpaths leading to it. Accent lighting can be used to indicate entrances and exits. Perhaps green for entrances and red for exits. When most see red light playing on a gate, they will know they cannot enter there. The same with green. You can use red accent lighting at the hotel exit side of a gate or barrier and green light road side. Vice versa for exits: green hotel side and red road side.
It is easy to make sure nobody should stray off the designated pathways and driveways. You can use small lights set into the side of the roads or paths. Green to driver’s side and red the other side to avoid collisions with oncoming vehicles. For pathways, white lights to each side and occasional landscaping spotlights will make sure that a) nobody strays off the path, and b) they can see any fallen branches or other trip hazards.
Imaginative Hotel Outdoor Lighting
Imaginative hotel outdoor lighting does more than just makes your motel restaurant or hotel look good. You can use it any way you want. You can illuminate the general grounds or spotlight specific features using accent lighting. If you have a statue or fountain, then we can set up a lighting system to show these features in the best possible way. The same with fish ponds: soft blue or green lighting can convert an ordinary fish pond into a thing of beauty. Landscape lighting on children’s play areas can make these safe even after dark. Parents like talking time or to relax with a coffee after a meal. The kids can be playing outside in an area lit up like daylight. It is even possible to set up CCTV cameras so parents can keep an eye on their offspring. Some country restaurants already use such a system.
Imaginative Use of Outdoor Lighting
Use your imagination. If you are stuck for ideas on how to create imaginative hotel outdoor lighting then we can give you a few ideas. The benefit there is that what we suggest is what we are able to provide. It is likely already working successfully elsewhere.
A country restaurant, hotel or motel should make a statement. It should say “Here We Are!” and once visitors get to it they should not be disappointed. A well-lit building, with beautifully lit entrances, clearly delineated drives and pathways, will raise expectations of excellence. It is up to you not to disappoint them!
