Lighting for Homes & Gardens

Lighting a home is a very individual process for the home owner guided by their own tastes styles and requirements.

A lighting designer can offer advice on the many different options available and on techniques that may well be unfamiliar. As well as guiding clients through the challenges presented by the energy efficiency requirements of the building regulations, and best practice for sustainable design.

We have access to a wider range of products than most contractors or shops and will be able to source samples to show to a client  demonstrating techniques and options where possible using the actual luminaires proposed.

A lighting designer will be familiar with contractual issues and experienced working with electrical contractors. They will be able to project manage a job to avoid many of the pitfalls that can otherwise occur and ensure that the best value for money can be achieved, whilst introducing a client to many new and exciting methods.

We will work closely with an architect, interior designer or custom installer to ensure that the lighting is well integrated with design concepts and choice of finishes and fittings.

These principles  equally apply to house exteriors and gardens, where discreet and sympathetic lighting can bring to life a landscape all too often lost during the hours of darkness.
