The simplest Things are important in Lighting and Electrical Design

Posted on November 30, 2017 at 11:30 AM

 A customer who is remodeling a historic building in the French Quarter asked for Design services for lighting.   The switching plan for this space was very important so as to NOT destroy the look of the spaces with switches and dimmers all over the place.   After completing the layout the designer added cabinets in the bathroom which would best be lit and worked with the electrician to create 5 gang switch look in the master water closet.       This wasn't necessary.  A simple email to the designer and owner adjusted this.  While this seems simple support,  the reason you use a lighting supplier that handles layouts is because switching/dimming becomes an afterthought for many, but not for the experienced lighting and controls designer.   The learning here is to NOT make switching/dimming an afterthough.  Put as much effort into this part of the plan as the lighting and furniture layout.

At PEMBA the simpliest things are important.  Here is the email feedback from the customer.  " Patricia, As recommended I am moving the WC under cabinet switches to mirror wall near the outlet. I am also having another outlet placed to the right of the door and into the WC (more convenient for my hairdryer). Sid and I are working thru things..... thanks for all your expertise, your products and your amazing skill and patience!"
