Industville offer a huge range of stylish lighting solutions and their friendly team have a vast amount of experience working on commercial projects from small coffee shops to large hotels. Looking at lighting design as part of the bigger picture, they understand that interiors play a vital role in improving the customer experience and that lighting is an important consideration within this.

Invest in Quality & Environment-Friendly Lighting
Your lighting should reflect your brand story and hence you will want to use lighting made from the highest quality materials. Not only will this enhance the overall atmosphere, it can improve perceptions of your brand, giving it individual flair. At Industville all of our lights are handcrafted from quality materials such as pure brass or copper. Investing in quality also means the lights will last longer and with energy consumption levels likely to be high in hotels, bars and restaurants, this is something to bear in mind. Industville bulbs utilise eco-friendly, cost-effective LED technology making them both practical and stylish.
Choose a Style that tells your brand story
From the moment guests walk through your door to the reception or entrance, they begin to notice various aspects that contribute towards shaping their all-important first impression; therefore, your choice of lighting can significantly affect the way they view your establishment. The key here is to maintain the brand concept of your hotel, bar or restaurant.
Lighting should be used to create a luxurious and welcoming feel, resulting in a place your customers will want to spend time in and return to. To achieve this, lighting should be approached in a layered manner. This ensures all the architectural and design features of the room are highlighted, from ceiling to floor. Embrace the whole range of lighting sources available from pendant lights, recessed lights and chandeliers, to track lighting, lamps and spot lighting. I advise customers to vary the lighting in a room to create little pockets and pools of light. Accent lighting can then be used to highlight a piece of artwork, plants or architectural features in the room.
At Industville, our exclusive finishes are available in an array of lighting options, making it easy to mix and match different lights to create a layered yet coordinated scheme throughout your space.

Ensure Outdoor Areas are Well-Lit
Don’t forget lighting for outdoor areas, where safety is a key factor. Try to match the style and identity of the lighting indoors, keeping the theme flowing from inside to out. Industville offer a great range of complementary outdoor lighting styles all of which carry the necessary IP65 rating.
Choose Custom Lighting to really stand out from the crowd
With our own manufacturing facilities, we offer a range of bespoke services to make your project really unique. Whether you want to create a dramatic installation in a hotel lobby to really wow your guests as they come in, or require specialist sizes and finishes, we look forward to creating the exact vision you desire.
