How Can a Specialist Lighting Design Company in Worcestershire Help You? 


Are you embarking on a home or property project? Are you contemplating the idea of investing in luxury lighting, specialist lighting, or bespoke lighting for your property? If so, you’re in the right place! 

In today’s article, we are going to delve into the world of luxury lighting design, exploring the benefits and considerations of incorporating luxury, specialist, or bespoke lighting into your home, office, or renovation project. 

Whether you’re renovating your current space or building a new property, the right lighting will elevate your living environment to new heights, creating a truly captivating and personalised experience that creates the gorgeous wow factor you are looking for – for both you and your guests. 

When it comes to luxury lighting, it’s not just about functionality; it’s about crafting an atmosphere that reflects your unique style and enhances the ambiance of each space. This is where luxury lighting, specialist lighting, and bespoke lighting come into play. 

These distinct approaches offer a range of possibilities, each with its own set of advantages and considerations. By understanding the differences and discerning which option aligns best with your vision and requirements, you can make an informed decision that will bring your lighting design to life. 

Luxury Lighting… 

Luxury lighting introduces an element of opulence and grandeur to your home. It focuses on high-quality materials, exquisite craftsmanship, and attention to detail. From stunning chandeliers to elegant sconces and statement pendant lights, luxury lighting fixtures become works of art in themselves, adding a touch of sophistication and prestige to your living spaces. The allure of luxury lighting lies in its ability to create a sense of grandeur, elevating the aesthetics and creating a visual focal point that draws your eye to it. 

Specialist Lighting… 

Specialist lighting, on the other hand, delves into the realm of expertise and customisation. It involves working with lighting professionals, like Astra Lumos, who specialise in designing lighting schemes that meet specific needs and requirements. 

Whether you desire optimal task lighting in your kitchen, accent lighting to highlight artwork, or ambient lighting to create a cosy atmosphere in your living room, specialist lighting designers possess the knowledge and skill to create tailored solutions. They understand the principles of lighting design, the latest technologies, and how to achieve the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics. 

Bespoke Lighting… 

Bespoke lighting takes customisation to the next level. It offers a truly unique lighting experience that is tailored to your space, style, and preferences. Bespoke lighting is all about creating one-of-a-kind fixtures that are handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail. From custom-designed chandeliers and personalised pendant lights to bespoke wall sconces, these lighting solutions become a reflection of your individuality. 

With bespoke lighting, you have the freedom to collaborate with artisans and designers to bring your vision to life, resulting in lighting fixtures that are as exceptional and extraordinary as you are. Astra Lumos love working with creative clients to design truly unique and unusual bespoke lighting fittings, turning a beautiful room into a wow experience! 

If you’re considering investing in luxury lighting, specialist lighting, or bespoke lighting for your home project, Astra Lumos would love to go on this illuminating journey with you. Our team are dedicated to collaborating with you to create a stunning interior and/or exterior space with exquisite lighting solutions that go beyond functionality. 

Here are some of our latest projects in the Worcestershire area: 

Garden Lighting Design & Installation: 

We recently completed a garden lighting design project to transform the way our client uses their outdoor space, turning it into a beautiful additional living area at night. This client had invested a lot of money into renovating their outdoor space into a brand-new garden, but their existing lighting control system had lots of faults in it that were making it clunky, out of date and challenging to use. So, we installed an app-controlled lighting system for them to give them complete control over their outdoor lights right at their fingertips. 

Through the dedicated mobile application, we taught them how to easily turn the lights on and off even when they are away from home, adjust brightness levels, and even schedule lighting scenes or programs. This level of control has given them unparalleled convenience, allowing them to manage their garden lighting with ease, whether they are at home or away. 

We also set up their customisable lighting scenes, programming in different lighting styles to suit the different moods and occasions they wanted to create. Now they can host lively gatherings or seek tranquil ambiance for a quiet evening outdoors, effortlessly switching between pre-set lighting scenes or create their own new scenes; Adjusting the colour, intensity, and distribution of light to create their desired atmosphere. It has made their garden a versatile space that they can now adapt to the way they live, work, and play in the garden all day and even into the night now too. 

Another client looking for lighting design in Worcester invested in us to design and install the custom lighting they wanted with multiple electrical circuits, which now enables them to create various moods at their entertaining space by their private lake. 

With so much Garden Lighting Design & Installation experience of working with clients in such a variety of personalised ways, we really can support you with whatever you need. Whether you desire gentle pathway lighting, accentuated focal points, or a magical ambiance throughout your outdoor space, Astra Lumos can bring your garden and all outdoor areas to life after dusk, enabling you to enjoy the beauty of your outdoor space even when the sun sets.

Full House Smart Home Projects: 

The Astra Lumos team excels in designing and implementing full house smart home projects that integrate various technical systems seamlessly, so the team were in their element while working on this smart home project in Worcester. On this project we designed and installed the full electrical specification, choosing the RAKO control system to give our client fully automated control of the whole house lighting. This means that our client can now adjust brightness, create custom lighting scenes, and integrate their lighting with other smart home devices for seamless control of their whole environment. We also installed their Wi-Fi so they would have strong coverage whether they are indoors or outdoors, plus their CCTV, an app-controlled alarm, multi-room audio and smart sound in their cinema room, internal lighting, and external lighting for the whole property.

Upgrades To Existing Spaces: 

For our client’s walk-in dressing room project on the outskirts of Worcester, we took charge of the entire process by designing, supplying, and expertly installing tailor-made lighting solutions to ensure this room was EXACTLY how she wanted it. Our team incorporated LED tape seamlessly into the units, implemented sensor-controlled lighting for enhanced convenience, and even integrated electric underfloor heating to create a truly luxurious and functional space. Having a full team of qualified electricians at Astra Lumos who are also skilled designers and craftsman means that our clients don’t have to work with lots of different companies to get what they want. We can organise it all! 

Collaborating closely with another of our Worcestershire lighting design clients, we embarked on an extraordinary journey to deliver a comprehensive luxury lighting experience for the stunning extension they added to their home. Our meticulous approach encompassed every aspect of the project, from fine-tuning the lighting design, to crafting a bespoke RAKO control system that seamlessly integrated design, supply, and expert programming. The result was an enchanting space that effortlessly balanced aesthetics, functionality, and technological innovation, truly elevating their home to new heights. 

Technical System Design and Installation: 

As well as all things lighting design, Astra Lumos also offers a range of technical system design and installation services. In a recent exciting collaboration with a renowned Worcestershire Global Interior Furnishing Store, we undertook a transformative project with them encompassing a comprehensive interior lighting upgrade. Our expertise extended to designing and implementing a full LED upgrade, conducting meticulous electrical maintenance, and delivering precise lighting specification. The highlight of this endeavour was the installation of a custom-designed track light with multiple circuits, seamlessly blending functionality and aesthetics. Even as a retrofit project, we skilfully concealed all control wiring, ensuring a flawless finish that exceeded expectations and brought a new level of brilliance to the store’s interior ambiance. 

Tailormade tech is one of our great specialities, so whether you need a robust CCTV system to enhance the security of your property or a reliable Wi-Fi network to support your smart home devices, our team will meticulously design and install the necessary systems to meet your specific requirements, ensuring that all technical systems seamlessly integrate with your lighting design, resulting in a cohesive and efficient home automation experience. 

If you are still unsure about whether to work with a specialist lighting and electrical company or not, here are the top three myths that we hear all the time from other people who are considering working with a lighting design and installation company. Perhaps one or two will resonate with you… 

Myth 1: Lighting Designers Are Only for Luxury Homes 

One common misconception is that lighting designers are only necessary for high-end or luxury homes. However, this is far from the truth. Lighting design professionals bring value to all types of residential projects, regardless of the budget. Whether you are renovating a small apartment or building a modest family home, a specialist lighting designer can work within your constraints to create a lighting plan that enhances your space, highlights architectural features, and improves functionality. They have the expertise to optimise your lighting design, making your home more comfortable, efficient, and visually appealing, regardless of its size or style. 

Myth 2: Specialist Lighting Designers Are Expensive and Not Worth the Investment 

Another common misconception is that hiring a specialist lighting designer is an unnecessary expense. While it’s true that there is a cost associated with their services, the value that a good lighting designer with a background in electrics brings to your project far outweighs the investment. A specialist lighting designer has the knowledge and experience to create a lighting design that not only enhances the aesthetics of your space but also improves energy efficiency, maximises natural light, and optimises functionality. They can help you choose the right fixtures, placement, and control systems, ultimately saving you money in the long run by reducing energy consumption and minimising the need for costly lighting revisions or replacements. Additionally, their expertise adds a level of sophistication and attention to detail that can greatly enhance the overall value of your home. 

Myth 3: I Can Handle Lighting Design Myself or Rely on the Electrician 

While it may be tempting to take on the task of lighting design yourself or rely solely on your electrician, it is important to recognise the unique skill set that a specialist lighting designer brings to the table. Lighting design goes beyond simply selecting and installing fixtures. It involves a deep understanding of lighting principles, colour temperatures, layering techniques, and control systems. 

A specialist lighting design team with over 45 years of combined experience as electricians, like Astra Lumos, has extensive knowledge in these areas that you can draw upon to ensure your project is right first time. Plus, because we are qualified electricians, it means that we can create a cohesive and well-balanced lighting plan that meets your specific needs and desires – knowing that it’s going to work. The worst thing for us is when we get called into a project last minute after their electrician has designed a plan that just won’t work. It’s time consuming when we are brought into someone else’s plans, not to mention expensive for the client when we must undo it all and start again. That’s why we prefer to work with you from the very beginning of your project. 

Our team considers factors that regular electricians just don’t have the experience to think about, such as the purpose of each space, the desired ambiance, and the architectural features to design a lighting scheme that not only looks great but also functions effectively. Collaborating with a lighting designer with electrician experience ensures that your home’s lighting is expertly tailored to your lifestyle, providing you with a well-lit, visually appealing, and functional living environment.
