Every kitchen needs cabinets, but not every cabinet opens as effectively as we would like; perhaps there’s a cupboard which opens the wrong way, a door which swings shut when you want it to stay open, or that one corner unit that houses all the junk that no-one needs because it’s impossible to get into to...
  There are few things more aggravating than the constant slamming of cabinets and doors, but your home shouldn’t be a stressful atmosphere...
For a room that screams peaceful atmosphere, almost everyone will look towards perfecting their bedroom, whilst some will think of their study and a lucky few will think of a personal library...


How to Advise Clients on Using Lighting Effectively in the Home


As a professional lighting fitter, you probably get asked all the time about the best ways to maximise the potential of lighting products. How best to light a corner? Which bulbs work best for each room function? How much lighting is necessary for a certain room? 

If you can answer these questions well, your client will realise that it is not only your installation that is on top form, it is your industry knowledge too.

Choosing Lighting for Certain Effects

Some clients will ask you about lighting because they want to know what type of lighting set up works best for certain effects, like how best to create low lighting to help relaxation, or how to replicate natural light for home office set ups. But if your client isn’t as direct as this, you might need to tease out this information so that you can inform them well.

Ask about how the client uses the space; ask where they spend most of their time in the home; and ask how many people have a say in the function of the room. Details like this can help you figure out what’s best.

Choosing Lighting for Energy Efficiency

Another major concern for clients nowadays is the energy efficiency of the lighting that you’re installing. Part of using lighting effectively in the home is knowing exactly how much power they will need to perform their function.

Make sure you’re up to speed on the latest innovations in eco-technology so that you can advise your clients accordingly.

Choosing Lighting for Aesthetics

At the end of the day, your client won’t go for anything if it doesn’t look nice when it is installed. Aesthetics - how the lighting actually looks when it’s on - are a big deal. Consider existing as well as proposed design features in the home, and do your best to ensure that what you are offering to your clients fits in with their overall design profile.
