The Process

How it all works


I’m lighting designer Claire Pendarves and I carry out all the design schemes for online and local projects. Basically, the process for the remote service follows the same principle as when designing locally.

Lighting is usually planned in the early stages of design so not visiting the site isn’t much of a drawback. As long as I have the architectural plans and we establish a good line of communication, the result will be as detailed and thorough as a local project,

Lighting Design Service - Questions & Answers

What do you supply?

You’ll receive marked up plans showing all the circuits and a legend showing you suggested lights. Also a moodboard showing you the proposed lighting, and a detailed specification listing all the lighting products proposed.

How long does it take?

Usual turn around is 7-10 working days. Sometimes the lead time will be longer depending on my workload. Please let me know if you are needing the design urgently and I’ll do my best to slot the job in.

Do you need more?

Ideally it’s good to have details of kitchen and bathroom layouts and an indication of how the rooms will be used. Also details of floor finishes and any pivotal design features. Links to Pinterest boards can be useful as well.

How do I proceed?

Once you decide to go ahead a time will be agreed and I’ll ask for a 50% payment prior to commencing the design. The balance is payable on supply of the scheme and any alterations within two weeks are included in the design fee.

How much does a lighting design scheme cost?

The cost of the lighting design will depend on the size and intricacy of the project. I’ll give you quote on sight of the plans.

Prices start at £250  – this would be for a large open plan living area and this may be all you need to be designed. I also design landscape garden lighting but would need full garden plans and this would be quoted separately.

Sometimes it’s just easier to talk through your requirements so please don’t hesitate to give me a ring to have a chat about your project.
