7 Benefits of Professional Lighting Design

"Professional lighting design offers as much drama to a space as professional interior design."

Professional lighting design offers as much drama to a space as professional interior design. Lighting fixtures, placement, and layout choices all contribute to how well a room flows and the overall feeling that it has. When you opt for professional lighting design, you know you have years of experience backing you and your vision for your space. PSE has been providing professional lighting design in NYC for years, and we want to share our knowledge with you. So today, we're talking about the benefits of having your lighting professionally designed and installed.

7 Benefits of Professional Lighting Design

Lighting design might seem very simple at first glance. After all, you're simply choosing fixtures and wiring them in, right? It's basic stuff. That's not really the case. While installation and wiring are definitely part of having your lighting professionally designed, that's only one small part of a greater lighting landscape. A lighting design professional knows how to analyze the shape of a room, its window placement, how it flows into other rooms, and more to achieve the most efficient and beautiful lighting possible. They also understand how to integrate your lighting into your existing smart home setup, as well. 

Even that's just the tip of the iceberg, so let's take a  look at how you can benefit from having your lighting professionally designed and installed. 

Ambiance and Atmosphere

Lighting is about more than simply removing the darkness from a room. Lighting provides an entire vibe to a space - a vibe that can be adjusted based on the type of lighting used, its placement, and the layering of how the light falls in the room with the combination of overhead fixtures and miscellaneous lighting such as lamps. 

By combining overhead fixtures, accent lighting, and even the natural light from your windows, professional lighting designers create layers of light. These layers create an inviting space that can relax you, energize you, or help drift off to sleep. It's all about how you control your lighting. 

Form and Function

When it comes to lighting, form and function go hand in hand. This ties in closely with creating the right atmosphere for a room and the home, in general. Lighting designers do more than simply bring light into your home. They carefully plan a lighting scheme with various layers and designs that work together to create a flow of light that offers both functional lighting and a lovely ambiance, as well. They even take your furniture into account to ensure the proper lighting and design elements. 


At PSE, one of the cornerstones of our professional lighting design in NYC is listening to our clients. Rather than sweep in and tell you what you have to have, we sit down with you and collaborate. You tell us your fixture design preferences, how you'll be using your rooms, and other key information, and we design beautiful lighting around that. If you work from home, we can provide ample lighting without eye strain in your office. If you have art pieces or particularly important family portraits, we can even offer lighting options that showcase those hangings. 


Lighting technology is constantly evolving, and we stay at the forefront of it to ensure that you receive the most advanced, cost-effective, and sustainable options possible when we design your home lighting scheme. We don't sell lighting products, so our recommendations are based purely on what will work for you and your home and what will save you money on your utility bills. 

Color Temperature

Professional lighting design also takes color temperature into account.If you don't know what color temperature is, it's just a fancy way of saying how yellow or blue the light will be. Using various color temperatures, professional lighting designers can create different atmospheres in different rooms of the home. They can also use the color temperature that you prefer, as well. 

Installation and Integration

Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of professional lighting design is installation and integration. PSE is a full-service audio-visual company, so we understand lighting design, audio-visual setups, and all aspects of smart home controls. Professional installation and integration ensure that every room of the home offers full adjustability that's integrated into your home's existing smart technology. This allows for ease of use as well as total control of how you want the room to feel at any given moment.
