What does an initial consultation involve?A first meeting is likely to take an hour or so and involves the lighting designer explaining how he or she works and you outlining what you have in mind for your budget.“Unlike interior design, lighting design is generally more advisory than consultative,” Sian says. “This is because the interior layout and structural details of the property will drive the lighting design to a large degree.” Don’t worry if you have difficulty expressing exactly what you want in terms of lighting – that’s what a lighting designer’s there for. “Clients will often say things such as ‘I need my pottery collection to be lit’ or ‘I want the gym to become a party room at night’,” Sian says. A good lighting designer will be able to suggest different ways these can be achieved.Larger projects that involve working with professional clients will work differently, though. “Where the lighting is integral to the very design of the project, the interior design will be developed in line with the lighting,” Sian says.

Undercabinet lights. Probably the second-most popular place for LED lights is under a cabinet in the kitchen. This is another room where having bright, even light is essential because it helps with tasks such as chopping, recipe reading and testing the doneness of foods. Using an LED strip under a cabinet provides more even lighting than widely spaced bulbs. And the ethereal glow will subtly help make the space feel bigger and airier. Sous les armoires du bas ?
