Ask an Electrician: How Do I Choose a Lighting Design?
There is more to lighting than an electrician hanging a bulb in a room. The positioning and output of the lighting is part of a room’s décor and needs careful consideration. Lighting can affect the colors, theme, impact and feel of a room. Lighting design is a creative opportunity.
How can an electrician help with lighting design?
A qualified electrician can help choose a lighting design to complement the room. Small lights distributed across the ceiling may set the room off to better effect than a single central bulb. Rather than a lampshade, consider recessed lights and a dimmer switch. Muted or adjustable lighting will help adjust the mood and feel of the room. An oddly shaped room may benefit from deliberately placed lighting.
Why is lighting design important?
Lighting is part of any room’s décor. With forethought and consideration, lighting design dramatically enhances the appearance of a room. A carefully planned and decorated room can only benefit from giving equal thought to the lighting design. A qualified electrician can advise on what lighting design will complement the décor. They can also undertake the work.
The intended use of the room matters too. An office or boardroom has different décor and a different intended vibe than a bedroom or lounge. Appropriate lighting can highlight the brand identity of a business if the clients are using their home as a base. Directional lights may enhance kitchens, studios and workspaces. Adjustable lights can complement natural light of any room throughout the day.
Lighting design can also benefit exterior spaces. From porch and patio lighting to waterproof lights for the lawn or pool, an electrician can help choose the right setup. At its most lavish, lighting design can include illuminated aquariums and in-home disco-balls. Dramatic spotlighting can enhance both the exterior and interior of any house.
What can a lighting design electrician do?
The electrician should be called in before any other decorators get to work. The lights and wiring will need to be installed first. The electrician may also make structural changes to the room. Discussing the final décor with the electrician will only improve the final result. Getting the electrician’s input early can help head off unforeseen difficulties. It will also save the clients money in the long run.
An electrician is an experienced and qualified tradesman. They are used to working alongside other trades. Electricians and decorators work in tandem to achieve the client’s intended vision for their home. A good electrician can collaborate with the client and the decorators to plan and execute the desired effect.
