Lighting is hugely important, and ironically it is quite often overlooked, but it is one of the most powerful tools you have to create a welcoming, warm and functional atmosphere in your home. Lighting your house is something most people will only do once in a lifetime, and for this reason, you really need to give careful consideration to how you will use your space before committing to a plan.
Designing a lighting scheme and choosing fittings can be both a confusing and daunting task. Our design team brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to your project, simplifying the process for you.
The perfect house is both a functional space and a place to unwind. So during the day, you can perform tasks like cooking and cleaning and zoom meetings, then enjoy an intimate dinner in the evening, before putting your feet up at night. Good lighting design will make the unique demands of your home work seamlessly together.
It's a little-known secret that light is essential for health and well-being. It helps regulate bodily functions and plays an important role in the nervous and endocrine systems and the secretion of hormones such as melatonin. A good lighting plan will maximize your exposure to good quality light.
Most houses are over-lit due to a lack of knowledge about lighting and lighting products. Employing a lighting designer allows for a more considered design while also keeping your budget in check. Lighting will only be used where it is needed and your project will be future-proofed for the changing needs of your home.

When lighting what some might call was your ‘standard’ home, people tend to believe that there is no need to pay for the services of a lighting designer. However, and of course, we tend to differ! So what value do we bring to a standard home that warrants paying for the service of a lighting […]
Choosing the right table lamp for a space is never as easy as it seems. Lamps enable us to change a space, how it feels and how we use it quickly… At the flick of a switch (It had to be said).
