We Can Help


"You did a fantastic job. The place is perfect…but without your fantastic contribution to our electric illumination, we could not have created such wonderfully warm and beautiful spaces."


"As I see it, the advantage you have over the “big box” stores is your ability to provide one-on-one personal service.  People need to feel important and listened to, I think you understand that."


"Thank you for your expertise, lovely friendship and humour - and for your access to first-rate lighting!"

Shopping – The Showroom has closed

Choosing lighting for your home can be confusing as there is  much to consider.  Function, style, physical size, energy efficiency, quantity and quality of light are all factors that will affect the enjoyment of your environment and the tasks performed there.

So be prepared – we will ask you a lot of questions.  The more information you can give us, the better we're able to assist you.  By bringing room dimensions (including ceiling heights), paint colors, photographs of the space and adjacent spaces, other décor choices, and material samples, we'll be able to jump right into discussing styles, functions, bulbs and controls.

If you're working on something more involved – like renovating a room, building a new home, restoring an old one, retro-fitting or opening a business, we'll need more time together.  Please read about our Lighting Design Services.

Offering Lighting Consultations

Tracking down the perfect fixtures, exploring ideas and gathering great tips online from the comfort of your own home is so convenient, but if you need the assistance of a  Lighting Consultant please contact Chris MacQuarrie at AtlanticLightingDesign@gmail.com to arrange a consultation.

Lighting Design – Residential

We’ll be able to serve you best if you share your vision with us.  So bring us paint colors, décor choices, and material samples.  Magazine photos of your design goals will be extremely helpful.  Be prepared to tell us how you’ll use your spaces and we'll be able to guide you with regards to styles, quantities and placement of lighting fixtures, bulbs and controls.

Good communication is essential.  If we’re designing your lighting plan, we’ll want to be on site for the walk-thru with your build team.

If you're undertaking a smaller renovation or make-over, this is an ideal time to implement lighting solutions that will enhance your enjoyment of and the beauty of your new project.  With a visit to your home, we'll create a lighting design that will be in harmony with your existing spaces and will light up your life.   We'll communicate with your designer/electrician/contractor to ensure that your lighting design is compatible with your new project and existing structure.
