Commercial lighting design for a new business
Commercial lighting should be done correctly. If you are setting up a new business in an old building somewhere in the Charlotte area, such as Rock Hill or Marvin, be sure to hire a commercial lighting design expert. If the interior of the building happens to be a masterwork of beauty and grace, you will want to leave it the way it is, but this is not usually the case with small businesses. In most cases, even the people who knew the old establishment will be expecting you to make this one your own.

Talk with them beforehand about what you want the business in general to look like, the lighting effect you want and what sort of design you are interested in.
