WEHBA Spotlight: Prime Lighting Design

Good lighting truly is everything. Lighting affects the ambiance and mood of a space — get it right and the whole look of your interiors will improve...

From their humble beginnings as the vision of the artistic Master Electrician Michael Primeau, ME ~ CEO of Prime Electrical Services Incorporated, they have grown into a full service lighting showroom with an ALA Certified Team of Lighting Specialists.

Prime Lighting Design, a truly authentic group of individuals that not only care about you making the right lighting decisions, their knowledge is incredible.

I went to speak with Jennifer, the Manager at Prime Light Designing, to learn more about their industry. Between the trends, their signature Lighting Lab, and the different types of usage lighting, I left there feeling educated and inspired.

The Three Types of Lighting:

Ambient Lighting, also known as general lighting

  • Provides an area with overall illumination

  • Radiates a comfortable level of brightness without glare

  • Allows you to see and walk about safely

It can be accomplished with: chandeliers, ceiling or wall-mounted fixtures, recessed or track lighting, or with lanterns mounted on the outside of a home

Task Lighting

  • Helps you preform specific tasks (reading, cooking, cleaning, etc...)

It can be accomplished with: recessed and track lighting, pendant lighting, under-cabinet lighting as well as floor and desk lamps

Accent Lighting

  • Adds drama to a room by creating visual interest

  • As part of an interior design scheme, it is used to draw the eye to specific components

  • Used to highlight the texture of brick or stone wall, window treatments or outdoor landscaping

It can be accomplished with: recessed and track lighting or wall-mounted picture lights

The Lighting Lab was one of my favourite features. All tiles placed in the squares (pictured), are the exact same tile. This is showing the importance of how different lighting affects the look, ambiance and feel of a space.
