Whats the best lighting to have installed for a home-based design studio?
We are moving to a new home and I am intending to run a graphic design studio from one of the bedrooms. Lighting is very important to my business. I need to find an electrician who will install some sort of strip lighting - it needs to be natural, bright, yet in can't have an adverse effect on the colours I am using on my monitor when designing brochures etc. I hope this makes sense and I hope someone can help? Many thanks! :)
Most of the big electrical suppliers offer a free lighting design service. So if you tell you electrician what you need he'll be able to supply you with the plan.

Hi , something with a cat 2 louvre would probably suit your needs best. Sort of lights used in commercial / office properties.

There are a lot of differnt lights available, 240v, low voltage, led etc. all have pro's and cons.
For a design studio, I would suggest something modern and stylish
