The Process

Simple. Cost-effective. Any location.

If you would like to get an idea of how much the project will cost then please send a copy of your architectural drawings in PDF form and we’ll get back to you with a quote.

If you are still keen then it would be good to have a chat on the phone or Zoom.

Here are some answers to questions you may have.

What do you supply?

You will 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 our workload. Please let us know if you are needing the design urgently and we will do our best to slot the job in.

What else do you need?

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 we will ask for a 50% payment prior to commencing. The balance is payable on supply of the scheme and any alterations within two weeks are included free of charge.

How much does a lighting design scheme cost?

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

Prices start at £250. This is roughly for an open plan living area (kitchen/dining/farmily room). The average price for a standard 3/4 bedroom house would be around £475 but this is only an approximate guideline to give an idea of what to expect. Please bear in mind that many houses nowadays are not ‘standard’ and will have such features as wine cellars, gyms, swimming pools etc. Also, this would include the exterior lighting fixed to the house but not any further landscape lighting. If a garden lighting scheme is required this would be quoted when we’ve seen the garden plans.

 

What if I only want some general lighting advice?

We are now offering a one hour consultation by phone or Zoom to give some general lighting advice for your project. This will be with designer Claire Pendarves and may be recorded or notes may be taken.

Please send your plans through at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled meeting so that Claire can assess the design beforehand.

Design fee £85 for one hour consultation

This amount would then be deducted if you decide to go for the full lighting design service within two weeks.
