Choosing the right style and type of lighting for your home can be a challenge. A good place to start is by assessing the amount of natural light coming into the room and by considering what you intend to use the space for. Do you need a general level of lighting for the whole room. Direct light to work under, perhaps at a desk, dressing table or above kitchen worktops. Or maybe ambient lighting for downtime and relaxing?
A mix of all three different types is ideal and will prove flexible, giving layers of light and allowing you to change the mood at the flick of a switch. All rooms should have a focal point attracting the eye and creating a pleasing impression. Sometimes a ‘wow’ designer light fitting can be this star attraction whether it is a central pendant cluster or chandelier in a hallway or maybe a line of stylish pendant lamps above a kitchen island or dining table.
Whatever type and function you are looking for, there is now a fantastic choice, all from British makers on Buy Britain to help you light up your life…
