Our Approach to Design


Ideally we are involved in the project well before first electrical fix so as we can optimise the approach to the lighting and importantly the positioning of lighting.
Working from drawings we will consider for each room 2 or 3 different lighting designs. We will identify the ‘special’ opportunities to make the lighting unique to the room and the property.
We will always look for the features which are going to make the project special and will seek to incorporate these into the design solution.
We will consult with the client to get to know their preferences, their likes and dislikes, to understand what they want from the lighting and to understand how they will use each room.
This will lead to a draft design which we present both in spreadsheet and as an annotated pdf.
Once we are all satisfied with the overall design we will propose the fittings to be incorporated into the project. We prefer for the client to visit our showroom at this stage to fully appreciate the fittings we are discussing and to consider the wealth of options available.

New Builds

Its never too early to start thinking about home lighting design for your new build or extension. Provided you have architect drawings we are able to work off- plan and this gives us both plenty of time to consider the wealth of lighting options that will be available to your property. Working in advance of construction will also help you to consider in more detail the many aspects you will need to specify when the time comes. Aspect like light switching, power points, lighting control and many more matters will be considered.

Renovations

With an existing property the site visit is of course all important as we need to understand what you have, what you would like to achieve and what constraints there may be. During the visit we will develop one or more lighting plans which are tailored to your needs and the practicalities of your property before or after the renovation has commenced. We will consider style, materials, fixed locations and flexibility to come up with the best lighting system to meet your needs in terms of price, style and brightness.

Commercial

Whether you are considering lighting for a care home, a hair salon, a nail bar, a jewelers, a restaurant, a hotel or an office then we can help. From simple lighting of corridors, to presentation of a reception area, to creating high impact features for a ball room, we have the experience to guide you through this important aspect of your business. LED lighting is becoming the next big thing in lighting; LED is cost effective and brighter than current bulbs on the market. We currently offer a designer LED lighting overhaul.

Typical Problems


We have seen the results of not having lighting specialists to assist with design:
The electrician or builder who has a mindset resulting in overuse of the down lighter. Used in every room the down lighter fails to respond to the individuality of the room and its use as well as failing aesthetically. The ‘designer’ who fails to appreciate the alternative approaches to lighting and fails to respond to the individuality of the room.
The ‘designer’ who just gets it totally wrong with fittings in the wrong location, inadequate lighting levels etc... The ‘electrician designer’ who has been blinded by technology and over engineers the property into a control nightmare. There are so many aspects to getting a lighting design right and consequently so many ways in which it can go wrong. So don’t take the risk and engage the professionals from the start.
