Lighting Design Consultation
Lighting is an important part of your home, not only is it needed to illuminate the space in a practical sense it also plays a large role to compliment the aesthetic elements.
Artificial lighting is just as important to your home as natural daylight. By delivering the right amount of light in the correct applications we have the ability to transform a space to create mood and ambiance with smooth transitions along with enhancing the design and aesthetic by creating, concentrating and directing light.

Types Of Consultations?
Initial Showroom Consultation
This consultation consists of a one hour appointment with our showroom consultants. They will discuss with you any ideas you already have and assist you to pick out fittings which will be suitable for your space.
This consultation type is best suited if you already have an idea of what it is that you are after but not exactly sure what to choose! Our consultants will show you selected fittings to gauge their size, form, finish, light output, IP ratings and technical information. This information will help you make an educated decision on what is not only going to best suit your space, but enhance it as well.
Once everything is selected you will receive a schedule of fittings including costs.
If you feel that you will need more time we can extend the consultation which would then be charged per the hour at a rate of $80 per hour or extra over.
Initial Onsite Consultation
This consultation consists of a one hour appointment with one of our innovative lighting designers who will meet you either at your home or on site to discuss a lighting plan for your proposed space or renovation.
This consultation type is best suited if you are either renovating or in the market to update your current fittings but not sure what will compliment your space and existing furniture.
Our consultant will walk through your home to assess the areas of interest. They will take the time to discuss with you one on one exactly what it is that you are after and give you the information to transform your ideas into reality!
Once the idea is in place, we will go through and select fittings for your approval.
This consultation type is best followed up with a showroom consultation to see the proposed fittings in person and confirm the selection.
If you are happy with what is specified on site, we will email you over the schedule of fittings including costs to be signed and processed.
This would be charged at $80 per hour location dependent. Additional travel costs may be quoted depending on location.
This consultation is generally followed on from the Initial showroom and onsite consultations, however is paid by the hour. If the job which you have was initially only proposed as a small task and has turned into a larger job than first thought (renovations I’m looking at you!) this is where the extended consultation will be needed. This is where we can arrange a second appointment or correspond via email and phone to change any of your selections, look at amended plans and re work the initial design or discuss with your alternative options.
The extended consultation is $80 per hour and every hour after of time spent on paperwork and other necessary tasks.
Complete Lighting Design
A complete lighting design is exactly that; a complete design! This consultation type is targeted at clients who are building new or tackling a full home renovation or extension. Initially this starts with some background information on your project by completing the enquiry form on our website. This will give you the opportunity to explain your project in depth as well as upload any plans, photos or relevant information for us to asses prior to your consultation. We will send you out a check list and a guide to help you best prepare for your appointment. Depending on the size and scale of your project, we will book you into a 1, 2 or 3 hour consultation in which we will sit down together and go through from start to finish all lighting both internal and external.
Creating a full design can take time, so I highly recommend looking through our provided information beforehand. This ensures you will be fully prepared for a smooth and productive consult as well as peak your excitement.
This option is also available as an onsite consultation location dependant.
A full lighting design will be scoped and quoted to your custom design based on the time required to complete the project.
Our trade consultations are focused at builders and trades alike. Whether you have just started to go out on your own or you’re already an established builder, we are here to make your lives easier!

What To Expect?
On the day of your consultation we will sit down together and discuss what it is that you would like to achieve with your lighting plan. If you are unsure of what it is you’re after, no sweat! That’s why you came to us! Our consultants will guide you through the selection process, reading through your building plans and taking into consideration any existing structures to formulate a lighting plan to create a perfectly illuminated home.
What You Need To Bring?
It is essential that you email and bring your building plans. This must include: floor plans, elevations, sections and site plans. Along with this, if you have any samples of the finishes which you are using please bring these along also i.e tiles, stone, cabinetry colour, paint colours ect. Any inspirational photos are also welcome, This will give us an Idea of what you would like the finished product to feel like which will help when specifying fittings.
Another important item to bring with you, or at least have an educated idea of is a furniture placement plan. It is extremely beneficial for all parties to know how you are going to use your space and what/where your furniture will be placed. If you are unsure and need advice, we are more than happy to help with suggestions however everyone uses their homes differently so a rough idea is imperative for a smooth selection.
