What Is a Lighting Plan Designer?


Lighting designers often have a knowledge of physics, optics, ergonomics and environmental issues along with an eye for construction and design, allowing them to devise lighting plans that not only improve visibility but create hierarchies, dynamics and a mood within a space. Often working in conjunction with an architect or interior designer, lighting designers will work to incorporate reflective surfaces and integrate daylight. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of lighting: Interior Designers & Decorators, Design-Build Firms, Electrical Contractors.

Think about how you plan to use each area of your Kakabeka Falls, ON home. It's important to communicate to your Ontario lighting designer which space will be used as an office and which will be a media room, for example, as these will require very different lighting methods. In addition, consider how you'd prefer to control the lights. Lighting technology today includes dimmers, sensors, photocells (that let lights react to the amount of daylight in a space), programmable scene controls (that let you program different settings for varied lighting) and whole-house lighting controls (that let you control all or a portion of your home's lights from one source), allowing you to tailor your lighting controls however you wish.

Be wary of electricians or sales reps posing as lighting designers. Identify professional lighting designers by finding out whether they're involved in lighting programs or associations such as the International Association of Lighting Designers, and confirming that they have LC (Lighting Certification) or CLC (Certified Lighting Consultant) credentials. You can find more lighting in Thunder Bay, Kaministiquia, Shabaqua, Mabella and Neebing.
