Affordable Local Gold Coast Expert Electrician, EJ Electrical Works, Highlights Trend Towards Commercial Installations and Gives Lighting Tips For Interior Design Near Tweed Heads



Recent Projects Highlight Trend Towards Light, Airy Spaces Says Electrician

EJ Barnes, proprietor of EJ Electrical Works, says that his latest projects highlight interior design trends that depend heavily on good lighting design.

According to Barnes, commercial spaces and domestic ones have a lot in common these days. There is a lot of emphasis on open space, bright whites, and lighting effects. Many of his recent projects have involved the installation of downlights that create a uniformly-lit space and there’s a trend towards hidden lights that illuminate work surfaces.

Domestic Renovations Provide Inspiration

“I was very pleased with the results of a kitchen renovation project we recently participated in,” says Barnes. “The design involved the use of some really beautiful white marble along the wall behind the food preparation area. The team literally made it shine out with hidden lighting, at the same time providing ample light for those using the countertops.”

In before an after images, the entire kitchen looks more spacious, partly because overhead cupboards above the serving area were removed, but also because of the illuminated feature wall. The overall effect is both beautiful and practical.

Natural light is the big buzzword too, says Barnes, and installing larger windows is the home renovation order of the day, but his clients want the same kind of light at night too. Emulating natural light as much as possible poses its own technical challenges, but Barnes says his clients are satisfied with the effects he is able to create.

Commercial Installations Follow the Theme

In a commercial setting, a similar principle to the home renovation theme prevails. An elegant nail bar sports predominantly white décor and carefully-spaced downlighting offset by sleek, black-shaded lights that focus illumination on work areas. “The client liked the contrast and height variation we got from the pendant lights,” says EJ, “and from a practical perspective, it works well, too.”

EJ Electrical Works did something similar at the Robina Home Centre last November, only this time, the shades were white, and the ceiling was black. It was a good variation on the all-white theme, and it worked very well.”

Black, White, Light

A look through the EJ Electrical Works portfolio shows many commercial and domestic spaces with a focus on black and white - and the light to make the contrast all the more striking. But there are exceptions too.

A beautiful country residence matches its setting with an emphasis on warm wood tones and vintage-look ceiling fans while a coffee shop opts for artsy murals and pendant lighting. Nonetheless, the theme of brightness, airiness, and space forms a common thread.

Bright ideas in domestic and commercial lighting design are among EJ Electrical Works’ specialties, so whether entrepreneurs plan a shop fitout or homeowners hope to add a touch of added elegance to indoor spaces, EJ is ready to give them the benefit of his experience.
