When should I get a Lighting Design?
Whether you are planning a full build or the renovation of a kitchen it is always best to plan as early as possible, here are the most common times we are contacted for a plan:
Pre-Planned Lighting Design
Before the Electrician has started work is the best time to start planning your lighting, this means we can go beyond the plan and have the full range of fittings and elements at our disposal to enhance the architecture in your new build or renovation to cater the lighting to your lifestyle. A copy of the plans is the main thing we need, with all the elevations, also any furniture layouts you have are essential, even if at this stage they're not fully formed the more information we have the better. We love to hear about your style as well, let us know what sort of styles and fittings that you like.
Lighting Layout, after pre-wire
If the Electrician has already provided an electrical plan and completed the pre-wire there is still room to bring in a lighting consultant to make the most of the fitting selection. A copy of the electrical plan is a great starting point, but let us know your style and we can work with you.
Lighting Layout, replace existing fittings
If you are upgrading the fittings in your home you probably will not have a plan. In this instance it is usually better to get us to come to you, we can have a consultancy at your home, measure up what we need and come back to you with a detailed action plan of lights to change. Travelling charges apply if you are outside of Auckland.
Once the Lighting plan is complete it is best to meet in our store where we can walk through the concepts and demonstrate some of the latest innovations in lighting designs and solutions. At this point you will have refinements, we can present these by email or in person at your discretion.
On larger scale homes we can present 3d drawings of your home so you can see the effect of our lighting.
The final plan is trade-ready and includes detailed fixture specifications suitable for your electrician to quickly and easily understand requirements to allow for the pre-wire.
Our design philosophy
The Lighting Centre utilises 4 guiding principles. These principles are employed during the entire design process with extensive customer consultation to produce a Lighting Design that is yours, for your home.
Layered lighting is an approach that involves defined layers used to address functionality. Understanding of room function and layout is vital to a successful result. Interaction between layers can be used to dramatically alter the atmosphere, allowing rooms to produce different ambience when desired.
Best results are obtained using a combination of products, including proven and emerging technologies. We access products from a wide range of local and international suppliers.
Tailor plans to your needs
One size certainly does not fit all when it comes to lighting. At The Lighting Centre our in-depth consultation process combined with ongoing communication, will ensure we deliver a plan that’s just right for you, your personality and your home.
When it comes to building or renovating, surprises are guaranteed. We understand that plans may change, and our lighting designs can easily be adjusted to suit.
By working with us you can relax in the knowledge that your project's lighting is well taken care of, fill in the form above and let us make the lighting in your home exceptional.
I'm building through a building company, can I still have an independent lighting plan and supply?
Most building companies will allow for the client to supply their own hardware to their own design - it is your house after all. Many of our clients have built through large building companies and appreciate the insights a specialist can bring to the job as many provided plans are simply designed to light spaces. If the the contract includes fixture supply we can provide the plan on a charge up basis, we will still provide competitive quote and if you do go ahead with a lighting purchase from us the planning costs will be refunded.
