So many factors determine the type of experience customers will have in your restaurant. The type of lighting you choose plays a vital role. Well-planned lighting not only brightens up a space, it creates an atmosphere that draws in repeat business.

The best examples of great restaurant lighting all focus on achieving balanced design. This includes layering overhead LED light sources with ambient, task and accent lighting. And installing dimmable LEDs to control the amount of light, so your space is never too bright or too dark.

TCP can help you create a lighting plan for your restaurant or bar. Before you start shopping for fixtures, here are some other priorities to consider when planning the initial design.

What to Prioritize When Lighting a Restaurant?

Your lighting plan should put form and function as top priorities. You want the lighting to look great and elevate your space’s style, but it also needs to function properly. Guests may love your restaurant’s cozy ambiance, but they might not come back if it’s too dark and they can’t read the menu.

Here are functional requirements to consider for your custom lighting plan:

Light Temperatures

Different temperatures of light set the mood differently within a space. Cooler light makes a space look big and bright. This is perfect for kitchens and fast-casual dining. Warmer light makes a space feel intimate and cozy. This is the standard for fine dining.


Your restaurant’s ideal brightness depends on the mood you create. Quiet, romantic bistros are usually dim, while lively family restaurants are typically bright. The best way to control brightness throughout the day is with dimmable LEDs.

Fixture Style

Modern, vintage, elegant, abstract – the fixture styles you choose influence your space’s design in a big way. Recessed lights maintain simplicity, while a chandelier seeks attention. Using a mix of subtle and bold lighting fixtures within a space maintains a balanced look and feel.

Ambient Lighting

This lighting is important because it’s the baseline that determines how much additional light your space needs. During the day most restaurants receive ambient light via sunlight through windows. Installing LED ceiling fixtures replaces lost daylight with extra illumination at night
