Lighting is often overlooked in the process.
Just as you require the help & expertise of a builder, an architect or an interior designer, you also need a lighting designer to plan and integrate the more appropriate taylor-made lighting solutions.
Light is a crucial component of any project.
The earlier it is included in the process the better.
Every project is different. The timeline of the lighting design is determined by several variables like the size, the complexity, the technicality or the specification of the project.

Lighting falls into 3 categories
A good lighting design will incorporate these aspects to best suit your project.
The first goal of every lighting designer is to understand your vision, your taste, the usage of the space (ie. creating a comfortable space, using a combination of direct/indirect lighting...).
To help the lighting designer to get a full understanding of the space & to provide the right type of lighting for your needs: provide as much details, pictures or drawings (floor plans, elevations, cross-sections).
A professional lighting design will
Make a room appear larger / warmer
Make spaces feel more comfortable / with minimal glare
Provides flexibility to a space
Highlight features and textures within your home
Enhances the feel and mood within spaces
Reduce operating costs (power consumption and bulb replacement)
