When Should Lighting Enter an Interior Design Plan?
Randall Whitehead, IALD, pinpoints the best stage in the process to consider lighting design.
When do you consider lighting design during the interior design process? Should it come at the beginning, middle or end?
I like to come in once a furniture layout is completed and the list of finishes has been selected. It is impossible to do a quality lighting design in an empty room. I have to see how the furniture is laid out, what colors and finishes are being used, and know the needs of the clients. I guess you would call that late beginning or early middle.
