We perceive surroundings and object with light. Without it, we wouldn't see anything but darkness. Light features intensity, brightness, hue and temperature and considering these should be part of any good lighting plan. Light effectively sets the mood for a space and with light different parts can be accented or faded out.
Use of the space and people who live or reside their define what kind of lighting choices are needed. Aging resident needs considerably more light to perceive the same things as a younger person moving to his or her first own apartment.
Well functioning lighting is also a safety issue. Staircase and its steps need to have enough lighting. Hallways and corridors can also have dimmed night lights or motion sensors to secure safe movement in the dark.
Beautiful and fancy design lights are true eye catchers. They strongly define the aestethics and design style of the space. A design light, however, is not enough to illuminate the space by itself. Well thought out lighting is based on lighting solutions that mix both spotlights and general lighting. Lighting can be modified to follow the rhythm of the day by dimming or changing the hue or color temperature of the lights.
Lighting planning should be done only after the functionality of the space is set and fixtures/furniture plans are made. On the other hand, lighting is one of the first part to be installed in a building project due to power lines.
Great! Next step is to contact us so we can set up a meeting for a needs assessment. This first meeting is always free of charge. You will get a detailed cost estimate/quote after the meeting. If the quote will lead to a contract, we will start the design project. You will get a plan that includes the lighting placement and detailed instructios where to inquire.
