15 Stylish Lighting Ideas for your Chalet

Lighting can have a significant impact on the overall ambience of your rental property. It can help to create a cosy, warm feel or a bright, modern atmosphere. In this blog, we’ll discuss both indoor and outdoor lighting ideas. We’ll also provide inspiration for creative ways to utilise lighting in your rental property, courtesy of OVO Network properties.

Indoor lighting ideas

The clever use of lighting in the American-style kitchen at Chalet Panoramic Lodge creates a fun centrepiece for guests to gather around. The use of brassy tones creates a bit of warmth, which compliments the use of cooler grey colours within the stone countertops and floors.

Wall lighting

A few bonus lighting ideas!

  • Install automatic safety lighting on exterior stairs, garages and parking areas.
  • Have a master switch per zone to close down all lights at once.
  • Improve sustainability by having timers on corridor lighting.
  • LED bulbs are energy efficient. Make sure to buy the specific bulbs if you want to control them with a dimmer switch.
  • Vary the types of bulbs you use depending on area. E.g., bright lights for workspaces and low light options for living areas.
  • Keep plenty of spare bulbs at the property and make sure cleaning teams or the manager check that all bulbs are working each transfer day.
