Design and lighting

Sightloss_Design and Lighting

The resources in these pages draw on extensive research to set out the principles of good design and effective lighting in and around the homes of people with sight loss. In many cases, a relatively simple solution can make a great difference to someone’s ability to carry out daily activities e.g. under-cupboard kitchen lighting to facilitate food preparation on the counter below.

The guidance also aims to support good design in new developments, planned maintenance and refurbishment programmes.
