Light and shade
Making one small change to your lighting in can help create a comfortable, inviting space that everyone can enjoy. Adding a table or floor lamp to your room is the perfect way to alter the mood.
With so many styles and designs floor lamps don’t have to just serve a purpose in a dark corner. They can become great features and focal points. A comfy armchair that is dedicated to reading can soon become a warm nook in your home using an apartment lamp. Your floor lamp can become a real statement piece in your home, and it doesn’t need to cost the earth.
A lamp that sits on your side board or bedside table can have equally dramatic effects. From sleek desk lamps to tiffany style shades, it all depends on taste and preference.
Off the wall
A wall light is a neat and subtle way of providing light in your room.
They shine onto the wall they are fixed to, making for a simple yet effective feature. The light pattern can vary greatly due to the large range of designs and styles. From period style wall lights with etched patterns which provide a diffused soft ambient light, to the more sleek and contemporary chrome up or down wall light which will light the wall more directionally. A great space saver to invest in wall lights is your bedroom. Adding one which shines downwards at the side of your bed will provide a handy reading light.
In the spotlight
Spotlights and down lights create a strong, focused light that illuminates one particular spot. The ideal place to use spotlights is in the kitchen - they're subtle enough not to interfere with the rest of your scheme, whilst brightening up the whole look and making it clearer for chopping and cooking.
Don't forget... Bathroom and kitchen lighting can be slightly tricky as both areas contain water and electricity. You must choose a bathroom and kitchen safe light when purchasing.
