Contract lighting - what questions should you be asking

October 29, 2015 By Edel McCarron

When considering a contract lighting provider what questions should you be asking and what are the benefits of working with a lighting manufacturer?

When working on a new build, contract lighting design for the structure should be high on your list of priorities. You need to decide:

  1. What type of light fixtures are required and how many?
  2. Where should the lights be placed?
  3. How should the lights be fitted?
  4. How much of your budget can you commit to lighting installation?

But perhaps an even more important question you need to ask before considering all of these logistics is: What ambience do you want your lighting design to achieve? Are you designing a bold and dynamic structure and need a sleek, modern lighting theme to accentuate the contemporary design? Or do you want your lighting display to evoke feelings of romance and intimacy or quiet peacefulness?

Bespoke contract lighting manufacturers

One of the main benefits of working with a lighting manufacturer - instead of selecting pre-made lighting units for your building - is that your light fittings can be made to your own exact specifications. This is known as bespoke design. A bespoke lighting designer can create a range of high quality lights, light fixtures and decorative light elements to suit your building’s own personality.
