Lighting Expertise to Compliment Your Project Interior Designers
As an interior design professional, you know what you want from lighting in your projects. You know the style of light, the requirements and the effect you want to achieve. However, there may be specific services that you cannot supply or that may not be cost effective to handle yourself such as:
- Detailed lighting specifications and costings
- Drawing up detailed lighting plans and supplying full sized copies for tradesmen
- Ensuring lighting meets technical and legislative requirements
- Specifying and setting up lighting control systems
- LED selection
- Sourcing light fittings
- Expertise when dealing with listed buildings, timber constructions and environmental issues such as bat colonies
You can choose the decorative lighting to compliment your schemes with your eyes closed. You know that it’s well-planned architectural lighting that discretely makes everything that you do look its most fabulous. But Interior Designers tell us that their big lighting headache these days is navigating the technical minefield of LED architectural lighting. In the “good old days” of low voltage halogens a mistake in the choice of beam width meant a couple of pounds and a few minutes later problems were sorted by swapping the bulb over. These days, with integrated LEDs in so many light fittings, especially at the high-end of the market, specification mistakes can be costly and take days or even weeks to fix. And, if that’s not enough, there seems to be an ever increasing amount of building and electrical regulations to contend with.
Sam Coles Lighting specialises in working with Interior Designers to create architectural lighting designs for middle to high end residential properties. Our architectural lighting is carefully chosen from the whole of the market to suit the style of each property and the needs, aspirations and budget of each client.
