Good lighting has the power to bring warmth to a space, highlight special architectural details, make your space feel bigger and brighter, and even control the mood. When updating or adding new lighting to your home, having someone who knows the ins and outs of the lighting industry can be an indispensable asset. Lighting designers are able to provide expert advice and practical solutions for beautiful and functional lighting to help you create a home that works for you.

Here are three reasons why you should consider hiring a lighting designer to help enhance your home!

1. Lighting Designers Know How to Balance Function and Beauty

The work of a lighting designer goes well beyond simple overhead lighting and involves building out an entire layered lighting package that accentuates your home’s best architectural assets, achieves the style you are going for, and helps ensure your home is functional for everyday life. Working with an interior designer? Perfect! A lighting specialist can highlight an interior designer’s vision, suggest and implement the latest lighting technologies and ensure every area of your home is properly illuminated. Concerns on sizing and placement? Not a problem, lighting designers are well versed on lighting best practices to ensure every selection fits the size and scale of your home perfectly.

2. Lighting Designers Can Tailor your Homes Lighting Plan to Fit Your Needs

The lighting needs of a home can change drastically from day to night, as well as how you utilize your spaces during the week and weekend. Do you like to host dinner parties? Do you watch TV in bed? Do you have a vision for a special quiet reading corner? A lighting designer will take into account the different factors on how you utilize your home, your personal style preferences, as well as the size and scale of a space when crafting a lighting plan for your home. A good lighting designer will be able to tailor the lighting package to fit your functional needs and enhance your space, while also ensuring the entire home feels cohesive and not pieced together.

3. Lighting Designers Understand Lighting Trends and Technology

Buying and installing light fixtures has never been easier than it is today, yet, it’s also never been easier for homeowners, interior designers, and contractors to unknowingly fill homes with glare and discomfort. Although lighting technology has made great advancements in the last decade or so, we still find many homes with out-dated lighting solutions or a one-size-fits-all lighting package that does nothing for a home’s design and architecture. A lighting designer is responsible for keeping up with the latest advancements and trends in the lighting industry, this enables them to make the best possible suggestions for any given space. As they help craft a floor to ceiling lighting plan, they will select products within your budget and timeframe, ensure the right color temperature bulbs are chosen for your space, and be available to answer any questions that may arise.
