Five ways to create the perfect lighting in a spa location

Lighting and colour are vital parts of setting the scene in your spa environment. They can change the mood from romantic to relaxing and make a spa easy to enjoy after dark.

Lighting used within a spa not only has to be aesthetically pleasing, but it also needs to be fully functional, waterproof and meet safety requirements. Here we’ve put together our top five ways to create the perfect lighting in a spa location whilst fulfilling all of these necessities.

1.It’s the lighting levels and design which create the mood within a spa. Getting these right are crucial; the wrong lighting levels in a spa are noticeable and they can change the vibe in an instant. Spas are for relaxation, but they are also a place to socialise with friends or family, therefore, the lighting needs to represent both of these ideas.

2.Try some quirky designs that complement the theme of your spa; think cocoon like shaped light fittings or contemporary modern fixtures that are low lit to set the scene.

3.Using coloured lights in the swimming pool is very effective, you can choose the colours you would like and have them on a transitional basis, going either quite quickly or really slow depending on the atmosphere you’re trying to set.

4.Lighting can help when it comes to a lack of space. In previous spa projects we’ve worked on, we’ve helped to exaggerate space by incorporating mirrors to give the sense of higher ceilings or to expand the walls alongside our lighting suggestions. This is the beauty of lighting, the possibilities are endless, and, as a bespoke manufacturer, we can produce anything a client would like.

5. Have a conversation about your vision for the spa and the scene you’re trying to set with a lighting designer guarantees you’re going to make your ideas become a reality. Gaining ideas and seeing example pieces can give you a better idea of the products you’re actually looking for.
