Amazingly Affordable Lighting Specialists

Once upon a time, not a lot of thought was put into where lights should be situated. A ‘she’ll be right mate’ attitude was common amongst home owners and house builders alike. Nowadays we know that sort of attitude can cost us more money than it should. That's why we hire Wellington lighting specialists to make the best decisions. They can save us money and do the all the hard work for us.

How Lighting Specialists Can Help Us

Every Wellington property has different lighting needs. A Porirua home may need more security lighting than one on the Kapiti Coast. An Upper Hutt flat will need different internal lighting than an apartment in the Wellington CBD. Local lighting experts will be able to identify the types of lighting fixtures and fittings that your property will suit best. They will even factor our windy weather into their decision making processes. In particular, they may suggest heating lamps for your bathroom or spotlights for above your kitchen bench.

Lighting Design

Positioning lighting correctly in a new build or renovation is crucial to achieving lighting success. A lighting designer will identify areas within a room which will need more light and which light type would work best. Want modern lighting such as LEDs or trendy retro fixtures? Your lighting designer can help identify where they should go for maximum benefit. They can even suggest where you could source affordable models from.

Experts in Lighting Installations

Only qualified electricians should install lighting within your property. Local Wellington and Hutt Valley lighting experts will either employ their own or recommend one for you. They will ensure your lights are correctly wired and fitted to prevent accidents or damage occurring.

Lighting Fixture Repairs

Many historical Wellington properties still have original light fixtures installed. Replacing them when they get damaged can be near impossible. A lighting repairer will be able to restore a broken light fitting close to its original appearance. More modern light fixtures can also be repaired, though it may be cheaper to replace them instead.

Upgrading Existing Lighting

Plenty of renovation projects need to go beyond just having a lick of paint. Upgrading your property with new internal or external lighting can make all the difference. With the wide variety of lighting choices available, hiring a lighting specialist can make the decision making process easier and cheaper. They can use their knowledge and experience to show you which types and sizes would suit best. With an eye on future trends, they can also save you money by suggesting timeless lighting pieces to avoid further upgrades in the near future.

Hiring a local lighting specialist will help you achieve a high quality lighting solution for your property. We have gathered all of the Capital’s most popular and affordable lighting experts’ right here. Our experts are ready and waiting for your job.
