How to get Started
Get switched on and tackle your whole home’s individual lighting needs
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.
