Why should I get a bespoke light designed? / by Madeleine Roff

A lot of people don’t understand the true benefits and advantages of having a light designed, so we’re here to give some understanding!

Lighting designers will make you a bespoke piece that nobody else will have. Who wouldn’t want that?! The designer will be able to choose the best size, material, and style depending on the room and space making it perfect for you.

Designers have a lot of knowledge and a creative eye, meaning they’ll be able to achieve whatever your aim, whether it be an eco-friendly or energy saving light, to illuminating certain aspects of a room, or to have the latest technology. Although high street shops may have staff instore to advise, lighting designers will have very in-depth and rich knowledge around the design aspect which is key.

In terms of investment, it may cost more than a light from a high street store, however the quality of materials and longevity will likely be greater in a bespoke piece. Also, if you choose to sell your house at any point, lighting is a key influence when potential buyers view a property, so you want the lighting to be maximised… even if you’re planning on taking the light with you!

There’s often something missing or not quite right when you buy a light from a high street store and fit it in your home, but that can be avoided when you are a part of the design process. Also, with the knowledge of the designer they will be able to hear exactly what you want and can then achieve it.

Within BPL, Ben has gained a diploma in Interior Design from the National Design Academy, which led him to specialise in lighting design. Jackie also studied Interior Design at the NDA as well as Point of Sale Design and Graphics at College. Ben is a fully qualified electrician as is Luke so if you chose BPL we could not only design the light, but also fit it – we’re a one stop shop!
