Lighting Design

At Smart House, we offer Lighting Design Services to homes and businesses across Chester, Oxford and Manchester. The first step of the lighting design project will begin with us providing an initial fee proposal for your project. Regardless of project size, this will help with your budgeting and to ensure we can work within your required timescale.

Once this has been agreed an initial meeting will be set up with one of our lighting designers in Oxford, Chester or Manchester or on site at your premise. To ensure your lighting design can reach its full potential, the design needs to be done at the very beginning of a project before electrical first fix.

When you are ready to book your lighting design appointment, please call our Design Team on 0845 862 2134 or contact us here for an appointment.

STAGE 1 - Formulation and Presentation of Design Concept

During the initial meeting, our lighting designer discuss your plans and the project in detail with you. The aim of this meeting is to ascertain as much information as possible about the property including furniture layouts, logistics and your specific requirements. The more information provided at this stage, the more it will benefit the installation process and end result.

STAGE 2 - Detailed Plans and Specification

After our initial meeting, we prepare a full set of lighting plans in CAD format, a specification and detailed quotation, based around our own collection of fittings. This would include all the light fittings, lamps, transformers, drivers and controls. The specification and plans include full technical information of what is required on a room-by-room, circuit-by-circuit basis and will also detail the exact location of all the fittings, the type of lamps, engines and lenses used as well as transformer/driver and control details. It is at this stage that we will also agree any requirements for energy efficiency and how we can meet specific requirements.

STAGE 3 & 4 - On-going Site Visits and Revisions

We will answer any queries they may have regarding the project. Our designer would be happy to visit site during the first/second fix stage and this would be charged at our normal hourly rate as detailed in any fee proposal. We will ensure that we co-ordinate with the rest of the lighting design team to incorporate changes. Revisions will be charged at the hourly rate for design time and for marking up of the plans.


Regardless of your location, whether your premises are in Oxford, Chester, Manchester, or anywhere in between, our qualified Smart House electricians, designers and lighting installers ensure an accurate and cleanly-fitted installation..
