Here are our hot tips for successful staircase lighting

 

LOW LEVEL

Use low level lights to illuminate stairs. Consider using one fitting to highlight every, or every other, step for a stunning result.

UPLIGHTS

Recess uplights into your staircase to create a dramatic effect with a functional use.

PENDANTS

Suspending multiple pendants down stairwells at different heights is a great way of creating a real statement that goes beyond simply providing a means of lighting.

LED TAPE & EXTRUSIONS

Create a contemporary look to your stairs using LED tape and extrusions.  Under light, up light or side light stairs and turn them into a real feature.

Monaco Projects creates successful lighting – first time

Monaco Projects can help ensure that the lighting design element of your project, often the most difficult to perfect, is successfully implemented at the first attempt.

Our design team uses specialist software to create a 3D model of your apartment, villa or office. This model calculates the correct positioning of the lighting required and can incorporate floor lights, table lamps, wall lights, spot lights in the ceiling or LED panels.

Office 3D Modelling by Monaco Projects

The 3D modelling takes account of the amount of natural light entering the room, the height of the ceiling and even the colour of the walls and flooring – dark carpet for example absorbs a considerable amount of light requiring brighter bulbs.

This modelling makes sure that an accurate number of lights, with the appropriate levels of brightness, are used in the correct places, thereby avoiding underlit areas.

Lighting design Monaco

Monaco Projects Lighting design floor plan

As you can see from the photos different levels of light are represented by different colours. Brightly lit areas are off-white/green and the darkest areas are shown in red.

All these factors are combined to ensure that the guesswork is removed and that the brighter task lights and the dimmer ambiance lights fulfil your expectations.

LED lights that change from warm white to cool white

Lighting changes how we see our surroundings. It can affect our mood, from feeling awake and alert to feeling relaxed and calm.

Lighting temperature chart

The chart shows how the “temperature” of light is measured. It goes from 2,700k, the warm light associated with old-fashioned bulbs in the home, through to 6,500k a blue/white light that is considerably more vibrant.

Lighting design, as part of the interior design of your new home or business, has just become more flexible and much more exciting with the new dynamic white range of LED lights.

The range of dynamic lights includes LED striplights to illuminate under cupboards, coves, or cabinets, downlighter bulbs that are often found in spotlights and LED light panels that are frequently seen in offices.

Dynamic lights change from warm white to cool white at the touch of a button to suite a task or mood.

Instead of having to make one, permanent choice in your new bathroom of a cool white to apply your makeup or of a warm white to have a relaxing bath, you can choose warm white or cool white, and even dim your lights, depending on the time or day or your mood.

You can light your kitchen with a bright, cool light for food preparation and change it instantly to a dimmed, warm light when your guests arrive. Easy!

Clever plug solution to avoid carrying all those adaptors

If you travel regularly between Britain and your property in France, Monaco or Italy, you will know the frustration of never having the right socket for your phone charger, razor or other portable electrical devices.

We can provide a simple, yet ingenious, design solution to remove this problem: a bespoke fitting incorporating both British and European sockets that can be incorporated into your renovation or construction project, or even retrofitted, to ensure that you always have the correct socket for your gadgets without having to use adaptors.

Lighting Design – the key to success for your renovation

Lighting is one of the biggest make-or-break factors for the success of your construction or renovation project, whether at home or in the office. It is something that should be considered at the beginning of the build, when cables are being laid, rather than at the end. Sadly, lighting is often an afterthought leading to compromises and poor quality lighting. We use our lighting design team, specialising in energy-efficient LEDs, to ensure that lighting becomes an integral and exciting part of your new apartment, villa or office.

When producing a lighting design in the home in particular, it is important to resist the temptation to deliver an even coverage of light across the whole space to be lit: if everything is lit evenly, you will end up highlighting nothing and the effect will be bland. LEDs provide enormous potential for creativity, producing dramatic yet flexible and functional lighting.

Good lighting design should be able to give you bright, shadow-free task lighting on your work surfaces, good levels of ambient lighting, and interesting accent lighting to pick out focal points and areas of interest.

It is estimated that by 2020 80% of all bulbs sold will be LEDs and they are fast becoming the dominant method for lighting. With recent significant improvements in the manufacturing methods of LEDs, the quality of the light from LEDs is now as good as, if not better than, old-fashioned incandescent or halogen bulbs. They are no longer a second-best option and are now the solution of choice.

Whilst they are certainly more expensive to purchase than other lighting solutions, their consumption is only around 10% of that of a halogen bulb and they are expected to last about 10 times as long, so they provide very good value for money in the long run.

We continue to be very excited by the ever-increasing potential of LEDs to produce high quality lighting solutions and have recently recruited Alice Sasso to enhance our lighting supply and design service. Please contact us to discuss your lighting needs.
