How to get Started

Get switched on and tackle your whole home’s in­di­vid­ual light­ing needs

Style at Home (UK) - - Style Made Easy -

Take time to treat each room sep­a­rately and ask your­self whether the light­ing in each space serves its pur­pose. If it doesn’t, it’s time to make a plan. Note down what each room is used for and what ac­tiv­i­ties take place in which ar­eas.

Your kitchen-diner will likely be used for cook­ing, prep­ping by the cen­tral is­land or so­cial drinks around the break­fast bar – all re­quir­ing dif­fer­ent types of light. in­stalling dim­mer switches, or adding ta­ble and floor lamps or di­rec­tional light­ing can dras­ti­cally en­hance cer­tain ar­eas of your home.

Get­ting stuck in

whether you’re mov­ing to a new house or just un­der­tak­ing ren­o­va­tions, it’s worth plan­ning your light­ing even more care­fully. Consider new wall fit­tings and in­stalling plug points to add more op­tions for lamps. Fit down­lighters into low ceil­ing ar­eas or in­cor­po­rate them into your new kitchen.
