Why should I hire an electrician to help with my lighting design?

Feb 16, 2021

Interior design is one of the most enjoyable parts of owning a home. You get to pick the wall colour, flooring, furniture, and one of the most important components, the lighting. So why should you hire an electrician to help with your lighting design? Proper lighting can make a big difference in your home and illuminate its features. When you’re looking for advice on lighting design you need someone who not only understands the best places to put the lights but understands light itself. Electrical components need to be considered as well as the design components, which is why it’s a good idea to hire an electrician to help with your lighting design. 

A good lighting designer can help you not only choose the right lighting fixture but will help you find the appropriate place for it in your home. The type of lighting you choose needs to fit the type of room it’s in. Considering the size of the space, the number of windows, and even the colour on the walls will all come into play when choosing the right lighting. Pot lighting is usually an excellent choice for most home applications, not only do they give a timeless look to a home, they also provide an elegant lighting solution without becoming obstructive. An electrician can help you determine the best lighting for a space based on the lumen requirements as well as the type of fixture and bulb that would work best for that space.

Lighting controls are also a vital part of lighting your home. We’ve all walked into a house where you need to flick all the light switches before finding the one you want. It’s important to consider the placement of light switches, how many are needed to control the lighting in the room, and the best lights to attach to each circuit. Electricians have installed lighting many times before and are familiar with how people use switches and how best to place them in your home. 

Finally, when your lighting design is complete and you have your lights ready to install, an electrician will be able to quickly and efficiently complete this for you. Electricians understand the electrical pathways in your home so they can easily install your lighting and ensure its placement lines up correctly with existing wiring for minimal extra cost to you. Having a professional electrician be involved in the lighting design process will pay off when it comes to actually installing the lights and maximizing the enjoyment you get from your lights.
