Lighting is undoubtably one of the most crucial elements in successful interior and exterior design. Even the simplest of rooms can look incredible with the right lighting. In fact, many designers refer to lighting as the fourth dimension of architecture.
Lighting is so powerful it can completely change the entire mood and atmosphere of a space with the simple ‘click’ of a button. Spaces which are meticulously planned by an architect and, beautifully finished by a skilled interior designer, will require the technical design and staging abilities offered by a lighting designer.
The role of the lighting designer differs from the work of an architect, interior designer or from that of a design service offered through a lighting supplier. In our experience, architects and interior designers are able to offer only limited knowledge of lighting design and, the design services offered by lighting suppliers, will mean commitment to using only the products that they supply.
A professional lighting designer will bring depth of knowledge to the project, along with a strong technical background and a wealth of experience. Moreover, they have the freedom to advise on an extensive range of products, solutions and brands, enhancing their ability to complement, accentuate and enhance your project.
They will also be able to create the environment and ambience desired and add tiny tweaks that provide huge impact and make any space feel ‘just right’. They will also be able to install a system that is completely up to date and energy efficient.
To ensure lighting design meets all its potential, it’s important that it is included at the very beginning of a project, before the first electrical fix.
