How to design a Pub lighting scheme
It is important to remember that many pubs have multiple purposes. For example, a dining area may be used to serve meals in the evening, breakfast in the morning and act as a space for guests to drink. Incorporate lighting that has dimmable functionality that can be controlled throughout the day and adjusted to how much light is needed.
The purpose of your pub lights may be for practical use, such as to illuminate the bar area, and a row of pendant lights could be the perfect way to do this. They are decorative, while still providing enough light to make drinks and serve customers.
Consider the layout of your pub when making lighting choices. Many pubs may include architectural elements, such as beams, which can be highlighted using lighting to create a feature element.
Some older buildings have low ceilings, so hanging lights may not be an option. In this case, an alternative may be to include flush ceiling fittings, which will provide light without taking up much needed space.
Take into account where natural light is available. Creating a balance between natural light and artificial light will ensure the interior adapts to varying times of the day.
Work alongside the overall style of the pub. If it has a rustic, traditional feel, don’t be afraid to find lighting that leans into this, with beautiful antique pieces or vintage-inspired modern lighting. Alternatively, a modern pub may look best with contemporary-style fittings, such as glass pendants or cluster chandeliers.
An interesting lighting experience could also be created through modern and antique pieces. The juxtaposition between the two lighting styles could create something quite unforgettable.
What are some popular Pub lighting ideas?
The interesting part of lighting a pub is that there are many different areas in need of lighting, from atmospheric dining areas to outdoor seating spaces.
Here are some popular pub lighting ideas for different areas.
The Garden Area
On a warm summer’s day, the pub garden is where everybody flocks. Lighting this area with decorative outdoor lights will help to make the space one which people will want to keep coming back to.
The Dining Areas
Traditional pubs may include quirky additions throughout the dining area, such as snugs or slightly dining spaces. A cluster light above the table in darker areas such as this will create an intimate and exciting dining experience.
Over the Bar
Above the bar is an important place to illuminate correctly. Every great pint should be lit by the right lights. Decorative pendant lights are both practical and eye-catching.
