Does Your Project Favor a Lighting Consultant?
Contractors Build…Designers Design
Most designers, interior and architectural, have a good understanding of lighting. They are capable of helping you decide how much light is needed, choosing tasteful products, and coordinating placement with the contractor. However, not ALL designers do. Ask your design professional if a lighting consultant would be appropriate so that you can get the most out of your lighting!
If you ask your contractor to provide the general lighting, then he/she will because you asked for it, and your builder is in service to you. The resources that a contractor has to design lighting are usually very limited, and most often originate from a sales representative who knows nothing about you or your home. Ask your contractor to suggest a lighting consultant and they assuredly will!
