Featured Reviews for Lighting Designers and Suppliers in DC Metro
Olson Weaver Lighting Design and Install
Lighting Designers and Suppliers in DC Metro
"I have loved working with Karen and really appreciate her expertise and creativity. Her lighting design has transformed our yard into a very special place at night by highlighting the evergreens, dogwoods, plants, and the canopy we have above our property because of the large trees that surround it. Our guests definitely notice the atmosphere that she has created and the quality of her work. In addition to creating beautifully lit surroundings, Karen is very conscientious about fixing any problems you might have. She went out of her way to accommodate us after our landscapers mistakenly cut through a wire and we had out of town guests coming. She wanted the lighting to be working perfectly for their arrival and came over right away to fix it. We are very happy with the job her company has done and have continued to add to our lighting under Karen's expert guidance."

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of D.C. Metro
Lighting Designers and Suppliers in DC Metro
"Hired this company to service my outdoor up-lighting system. The technician was timely and identified the work to be done. Given the bad weather, he informed me he needed to come back on a given day to finish the work. He did have the office reschedule and he returned as schedule to complete the work. He walked me through the work he had done when he was finished. Very thorough and professional. i would definitely use them again."

Beautiful Nights
Lighting Designers and Suppliers in DC Metro
"I highly recommend Chris Meyer and Beautiful Nights for your outdoor lighting needs. His extensive experience with landscaping and the transformative effects of good lighting allows him to bring a wonderful aesthetic to each new challenge. Chris is professional in all aspects of communication and meeting deadlines while being flexible and creative in meeting budgets. He collaborates and works tirelessly on a job, reviewing the work until both he and the client are completely satisfied with the final effect. In my case, he additionally worked seamlessly around the challenges introduced by a driveway repaving job. All in all, Chris is a complete pleasure to work with and I am unfortunately not so easy to please! I look forward to enhancing our home with more of his work in the future."

Dulles Electric Supply
Lighting Designers and Suppliers in DC Metro
"I built my house a few years ago and worked with Sherry at Dulles Electric. With many years in the field, she is able to visualize the fixtures that compliment each area of the house. She understands about budget and would find similar fixtures that cost less. Talk about good services...she would stop by the jobsite to measure and mark each area so the fixtures location were perfect. I am happy with my light fixtures and will work with Sherry again, I had a good time working with her!"

Outdoor Illumination Inc.
Lighting Designers and Suppliers in DC Metro
"OI is a great company. They did my outdoor lighting on a complete landscape renovation. They were fabulous to work with. Quality and timeliness of the work were excellent and their customer service is incomparable. They've come out to do maintenance since and their prices are reasonable and they respond very quickly. They recently expended to do irrigation work as well, so I can get maintenance for both lighting and irrigation from one company. My highest recommendation."

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 showrooms & sales: Interior Designers & Decorators, Design-Build Firms, Electricians.

Think about how you plan to use each area of your DC Metro home. It's important to communicate to your 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 showrooms & sales in Washington, DC (Washington), Washington Navy Yard and Naval Anacost Annex.

Questions to ask a prospective lighting designer:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • Are you a participant of any professional programs or associations?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can the job get done?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about when there are changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
