5 reasons to hire a lighting designer

Last Updated Oct 7, 2016 · Written by Kat Tate


If you’ve ever struggled when shopping for the perfect floor lamp, or find the task of lighting an entire home overwhelming, hiring a lighting designer can be your best bet.

Here are 5 ways a lighting designer can make your life easier:

1 Lighting designers are enlightened

A lighting designer doesn’t just pick a light that looks good. They are experts at understanding how light works, how it plays with different surfaces and materials and spaces and shadows. They know what type and colour of light will warm or cool a room, change a colour, set a mood. Quite simply, they know things we mere mortals simply don’t – and that means you won’t make any mistakes with lighting your home.

2 Bigger picture, smaller details

A lighting designer isn’t just a lighting retailer. They’ll take the time to understand the entire design and layout of your home, taking in your lifestyle and budget, as well as the overall flow of the property and your energy usage. Then, the designer will delve deeper into the details, considering glare, awkward spaces, light and dark spaces, colour, décor, and how light can enhance what’s already in place.

3 Tech-savvy

Lighting designers are across the latest trends, tools, and technologies in the residential lighting world. They are trained to know how to best create a lighting look with energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness in mind – without sacrificing style.

4 Cost-aware

Best of all, a lighting designer is used to working with clients across all price points. They’ll be able to advise on where you can save money and get a luxury look for less, and well as lights to splurge on to really make a statement or add a high-design feel to the space. That means they will save you money overall, compared to if you go light shopping blindly.

5 Quality controllers

Finally, lighting designers don’t just live lights. A reputable one will also understand wiring and installation – so you get the peace of mind of a quality install and not a dodgy one that sacrifices safety. They’ll ensure the work is done correctly the first time, saving headaches down the line.
