A lighting design & installation company based in Rochdale, Gt Manchester.
We offer a diverse range of services to both residential and commercial customers to help transform their aspirations and dreams into reality.
This website has been created because we have a passion for enhancing and transforming wonderful spaces with light, and hopefully give you the confidence and inspiration to get in touch.
Light is often the single most important factor in a room yet it is frequently overlooked. Great lighting design alters perceptions of light and space, creating focal points and enhancing features, and creating moods or enabling tasks.
We pride ourselves in taking the time to listen and understand each clients requirements, combine this with lighting design flair, deep technical expertise and a wealth of construction and project management experience. Connected Homes ™ is uniquely placed to design and install lighting schemes for any project.
Always visually spectacular, particularly when using a multi-coloured LED light engine. Our fibre optic lighting products can be designed for use both indoors and outdoors, and are used in diverse situations... from pool lighting, cinema rooms, star effect ceilings to full sensory room installation which can help create a calming places for neurodiverse people.
LED strips are one of the most versatile and effective ways of lighting your projects and installation. With the ability of being able to be cut to size and flexible enough to cover concave and convex surfaces, LED strip can be installed in virtually any environment. LED strip is regularly used in all areas of the home due to it's flexibility and affordability. Easily create halo effects in ceilings, under cabinet lighting or stunning lighting effects.
Aluminum LED extrusions gives our installations a more professional and clean finish, but it also enables you to be more creative with your lighting projects. By using different extrusion you are able to control the beam angle of light as well as direction of light to illuminate targeted areas. Extrusions will also protect your LED from the environment and overheating, by acting as a heat-sink reducing the risk of your LEDs prematurely burning out.
Coving comes in all shapes and sizes. Generally it refers to decorative mouldings located at the junction between walls and ceilings. Our range of coving is specifically design to incorporate LED strips and have many different variants depending on your requirements.
Drop-down ceilings are a kind of decorative ceiling feature, suspended so they sit lower than the main (structural) ceiling around the centre of the room, and leaving a gap around the edge of the wall. Also known as false ceilings, drop ceilings and suspended ceilings, they’re an excellent location for LED feature lighting. The design of drop-down ceilings can vary, but they’re typically suspended with a drop of around 10cm-15cm, and the same distance from the surrounding walls.
There is a plethora of devices to control your lights, from IR & 2.4Ghz remotes, dedicated multizone wall controls running DMX protocols to wall mounted iPads running relevent applications to control your devices. The choice of which product to use is sometimes dictated by the scope of the project.
If you already have an Amazon Echo or Google Home, then your half way to controlling a vast array of smart home products. Its an alternative to the Remotes and App's that wont suit all, but perhaps presents the future of truly smart home control, the potential of Alexa in devices such as the Echo represents quite possibly the biggest development in controlling your connected home devices using just your voice.
In an ideal world every project would be started from scratch, but we understand this is not going to happen. If you would love to install LED lighting in your property but feel the installation would spoil your decor then dont worry. We will fabricate a modular solution off site to minimise stress and distruption to your home or work place, which makes the installation fast and to a preprimed finish.
