There are two ways you can approach home lighting design. The first

How to find the right person for your home lighting and design
- At trade shows
- Through your home architect
- Through lighting retailers, do they have lighting personnel
working for the light store?
A good lighting consultant/designer should be able to work with
you and get your home lighting needs met. But, remember to ask questions
before you hire. Find out about the lighting consultant/designer's
projects. Can he/she work within your budget? If the scope of the
project is large, ask if the he/she will be able to work with your
interior decorator, electrician and such. Will he/she be available
to assist the electrician should it be necessary?
How much money does it cost to hire someone for home lighting
and design services?
If you choose to work with retail light designers, you will probably
only be paying for the lighting fixtures with no design fee. However,
should you work with an independent lighting consultant/designer
be aware that rates will vary depending on the time spent, services
provided, light project size, and level of the lighting project's
detail. Ask costs before the project begins.
