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
Dining table lighting
Check out the dramatic statement pendant lighting placed at variable heights above the dining table in Rocalillie Lodge.
Creating an appetizing ambience, it also serves to effectively define the dining area within the sociable open plan living space.
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.
The attractive yet understated wall lights in Helios View Lodge add to the tranquil feel of the bedroom. They also serve a dual purpose, featuring individual directional reading lights.
The carefully placed feature table lamps on the console table at Arpitan Lodge make for an excellent room divider.
This contemporary overreaching arc floor lamp in Lodge Alta Clusa adds both architectural style and a gentle evening glow.
The matching pair of tripod lamps at Victorina add a subtle touch of Nordic style. They also cleverly incorporate a bedside table within the legs!
The hidden lighting strips above the beds in Peille throw subtle lighting upwards to highlight the handsome wooden beams. The result? A delicate yet warm, ambient effect.
The illuminated lighting built into the large, sleek bathroom mirror in Hartza is both practical and stylish.
Each of the beds in this charming family suite in Meringue has a control for their own individual adjustable reading light.
This clustered pendant fixture in Victorina comprises chic filament bulbs, producing a warming glow. It also draws the eye to the tall vaulted ceilings, whilst candles arranged above the fireplace create an intimate feel.
The chandelier above the bed in Vivaldaim adds a touch of luxury and works perfectly with the classic French styling.
Outdoor lighting ideas
Outdoor facilities lighting
Chalet Colombine’s enviable alfresco space is seamlessly illuminated throughout the dining, fire pit and hot tub areas, creating an idyllic evening atmosphere.
Outdoor terrace lighting
Terrace lighting at Chalet Argali efficiently brightens the deck, tiered planting and of course, the pétanque court!
Outdoor pool lighting
The pool at Chalet Beauvoir 12 has both integrated lighting and a practical spotlight deck.
Chalet Alti boasts a variety of well-placed downlighting fixtures in its desirable sheltered outdoor hot tub area – including a gorgeous night sky star effect.
Scattered lanterns with candles inside at Chalet Alpachic create a cosy natural radiance to the open-air seating area and jacuzzi.
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.
