New House? Let's make it a home
Its never too early to start thinking about home lighting design for your new build. Working off plan gives us the opportunity to consider some very effective lighting solutions such as in-floor lighting, inset stairs lighting, concealed lighting etc. Working off plan we can guide you as to the options that are available whether that be wall lights, ceiling light, inset lights. How you plan to use a room forms an important part of the briefing helping us to interpret your needs as accurately as possible. Know what you like as well as what you don't like are equally important in helping us to home in on a solution that is going to work for you. Off plan means we can suggest where to locate your lighting and we will be able to provide sufficient detail for your electrician when he comes to preparing for first electrical fix. Once construction has reached 'ready for first fix' is the ideal time for us to make a site visit to fine tune the lighting design and start to identify actual fittings for consideration. It is at this point we can assist in budgeting and helping you to come to decisions about what is going to work for you. We are happy to work from your plans and will provide you with a lighting specification sufficient for your electrician to design his wiring layout.
If time allows, sorting out the lighting well before first fix is scheduled will give maximum flexibility to propose the options available.
If time is more limited then we will give you our best advice based on the positions you have already determined for your lighting.
There are always alternative ways of lighting a room and during the consultation we will do our best to understand your needs and preferences so we propose the best lighting match.
If there are special features such as exposed beams, fireplaces, pictures, vaulted celings then we will normally try to bring these features to the fore of the lighting solution.
