3 Reasons Why You Should Add Lighting Design Early in Your Project


Include Lighting Design Early in the Process for the Best Results for Your Clients

Even though lights are the first thing we notice when walking into a room, many underestimate the power of lighting design. It’s not only a crucial part of any building project, but timing is also of the essence because it needs to be considered and planned for from the very beginning.

Neglecting lighting design during your Reno, NV project or not addressing it during its early stages is a guaranteed and unnecessary headache. Your best bet is always to partner with a lighting designer and have them work closely with architects, electricians, and builders from the start. This collaboration will inevitably lead to a hiccup-free project with amazing results.

1. Comfort at Every Level

Imagine it’s the first time you make dinner in your brand-new house, and you need to cut up some onions. You set up everything you need only to discover that you can’t see the cutting board very well because your shadow blocks the light. Later, you’re bringing food to the table, and your dining room lights are way too bright and cool, giving the feel of a hospital cafeteria.

By now, you probably realize that lighting can really make or break a room and home’s comfort level. On top of that, comfort isn’t only important in downtime; the ability to do anything comfortably impacts both work and play. So making sure the right lights are in the right places before you move into a home is key.

2. Covering Your Bases from the Start

It’s easy to get lost in stylish keypads and beautiful fixtures when you think about lights, but don’t forget about the lifeblood of any lighting design project: wiring. A professional electrical installation with top-of-the-line materials, like those offered through Sierra Integrated Systems, is crucial to your project at a fundamental level because it guarantees everyone’s safety.

Working with an experienced low-voltage contractor like Sierra Integrated Systems will bring you the peace of mind of knowing your home is properly wired and maintained—we can also help you with any electrical work you may need. When you partner with them early in the project, you don’t have to open up the walls to put the wiring in, saving both time and money.

3. You Stay Flexible

Every home is a reflection of its owner, and it can change alongside them. So, staying flexible and accounting for any future revamps or modifications ensures your project’s success beyond the end date. Whether it’s human-centric lighting or a custom home theater, any great project should account for the homeowner’s current needs and leave some room for future ones. The best and most efficient way of striking that balance is bringing all the elements of your build together early, including lighting design.
