4 Steps to create a Lighting Design – this formula is quoted across the World on hundreds of sites (step 5 is ours!)

4 Steps to create a Lighting Design – this formula is quoted across the World on hundreds of sites (step 5 is ours!)

Step 1:Multiply the room’s width by its depth to ascertain the square footage.

Step 2:Multiply the square footage by 1.5 (or 2.5 for task areas like Kitchens) to give the total wattage needed in the room. For example in the kitchen below 4.2mtrs (thus 190SqFt x 2.5 = 475 watts

Step 3:Divide the total wattage previously calculated by your chosen bulb wattage to work out how many fittings you need. If using LED use their equivalent wattage in these sums.

Step 4: Spacing,Recessed downlights are generally positioned 1.5 to 2 ft. away from walls with a space of 3 to 4 feet between each light.

Using a best selling 7 watt downlight this tells me to use 19 No. (I actually can’t see how to fit them all in so I used only 16 ! )”

Step 5 : Throw it in the Bin and call us to create something you will be proud of.

The High Street is changing to be an Experience

The High Street is changing to be an Experience

…So experts say,

The big retailers on the high street are all seeking the “next” way to keep retail alive and words like “experience” and “destination” are key buzz words. The clever directors at AL Nasser Group (biggest independent retailer of Lighting across Saudi Arabia) asked us to help design stores with interactive displays and demo rooms, and staff who could add real value to their customers. We don’t quite have the same luxury of space as we did in Saudi Arabian flagship stores but our new Shrewsbury design offices, is about being a welcome host and giving the time and space to showing clients possibilities with light.
