The importance of lighting in show homes

Show homes bring your plots to life, they provide prospective buyers with a glimpse of what their future homes could look like and help builders showcase their unique designs.

One essential element of any show home is lighting. Good lighting can make or break the look and feel of a property. Working closely with one specific lighting supplier will give you added specialist support enabling you to focus on your overall project.

Why working with a lighting specialist will help your Show Home project run more smoothly:

Cost Effective: Whilst show home lighting must be visually appealing it can still be cost effective helping developers to keep their build costs down. As a lighting manufacturer GL source quality, unique fittings at lower prices, helping you keep your project within budget.

Time Saving: Sourcing lighting fixtures from multiple suppliers can be a time-consuming process. Especially as lighting can be complex dependent on location, you may need a surface mounted fixture or something IP rated. With a specialist lighting supplier like GL on hand you can give a quick brief of what you are looking for and then let them do the sourcing, select the best options and present these back for you to choose.

Traceability: Working with a lighting supplier enables the marketing suite to quickly replace any faulty light fittings or lamps. It also means there is opportunity for the developer to include decorative lighting in their sales extras brochure or provide prospective homeowners with incentive vouchers to buy the fittings for their new homes – a nice additional touch!
