Good lighting can make or break a restaurant. Your food might be fantastic, but if it’s offset by harsh fluorescent lights or an overly dark atmosphere, no one will enjoy the ambiance. To keep customers coming back and appreciating your fine cuisine and your surroundings, consider these tips from our pro crew here at RU Electrical Service, Inc.
Get a professional assessment. Your first step in getting the ideal lighting for your restaurant is to have a lighting pro assess your needs. One of our technicians can come to your restaurant, evaluate your needs, and help you develop a plan for maximizing your restaurant lighting and for maintaining it. We can also help you work within your budget.
Consider the mood when you have customers come to your restaurant, what kind of experience do you want them to have? Are you looking to create a romantic, intimate setting, or are you more interested in a fun, upbeat atmosphere geared toward families? Lighting can affect the mood, so start by determining just what type of experience you want your customers to have. Look at your lights, both inside and out. Many restaurant owners do an excellent job picking out beautiful lighting inside to make each customer’s dining experience enjoyable. However, don’t forget to consider the exterior lights and parking lot lights!
If your building isn’t well lit or the parking lot doesn’t look safe, then that may detract customers from coming inside and enjoying your atmosphere and fine food. Don’t let exterior lighting take away from a fantastic dining experience. To find out more or to get a restaurant lighting assessment, contact RU Electrical Service today at (317) 348-5047.
