Design & Installation
Call – 01268 351560
Welcome to TM Hughes & Son Electrical Services Ltd. We design, install and repair lighting in Rayleigh and the surrounding areas.
We have a team of NICEIC Registered Electricians and take on all lighting installations, big and small, from changing a single light to installing a complete lighting system in both homes and commercial premises.
Planning A Lighting Installation
When undertaking a significant refurbishment or extension in the home, the lighting design should be integrated into the overall plan from the beginning.
By doing so, lighting can be tailored to perfectly complement the overall look and functionality of the refurbished spaces.
We have many years of experience planning, designing and installing lighting systems. Installing lighting requires planning that accounts for numerous aspects.
Understanding Building Regulations
As NICEIC Domestic Installers, we are fully abreast of the current building regulations, ensuring that all our lighting installations are legally compliant and safe.
Lighting Design and Existing Plans
We can seamlessly execute if you already have an architect or builder-provided lighting plan. Otherwise, we can design the lighting layout for your space, considering the specifics of each room.
Room Dimensions and Usage
We measure each room to determine the number and strength of lights needed.
Spaces such as kitchens, bathrooms, and offices may require additional task lighting. Living rooms and bedrooms usually benefit from softer and decorative lighting to enhance features.
Furniture Placement and Architectural Features
Lighting design can be integrated with your furniture placement. For instance, dining tables can benefit from direct illumination above, while reading chairs can be complemented with dedicated reading light.
If you have unique architectural features such as a feature wall, an arch, or a fireplace, we design the lighting to enhance these features.
Natural Light And Light Switches Location
The amount and direction of natural light rooms receive are factored into our lighting designs. The positioning of light switches can also influence the overall design, and if necessary, we can relocate switches for optimal convenience.
Light Styles And Types
Once the lighting positions are determined, you can choose your lights from various styles and designs. We install all types of lights and bulbs; each has a unique purpose or effect; our Eelctrican will go through all the options with you during the survey.
Types Of Lights
Types of lighting include ambient, task, accent, and decorative.
- Ambient lighting: Lights up your home and ensures safety
- Task lighting: Aids in daily tasks like cooking and reading
- Accent lighting: Adds dimension and enhances features
- Decorative lighting: Used primarily for aesthetics
Choosing Light Bulbs
Choosing the right light bulb ensures you achieve the desired ambience in your space.
We’ll help you choose the ideal bulb based on type, size, colour, and wattage. Our installations include LED bulbs for the best energy efficiency and longevity.
Outdoor lighting illuminates entrances, driveways, paths, and garages, enhancing the look of your garden and home, providing safe navigation in the dark and adding a layer of security.
We install all types of outdoor lighting, complete with energy-efficient light bulbs.
