The Basics of Home Lighting

Lighting a home is not as easy as you think. Everybody knows that the way lighting is arranged can change the whole mood and ambience of your property.

With a little tweaking with the help of dimmer switches you can either make a room light and sunny, or you could make it romantic and dark.

If you are not sure how to make the best of lighting you could ask for advice from Lighting Supplies South West London. Obviously lighting shops have a great deal of experience and depending on your personal tastes, they can point you in the right direction.


After all, you will have to live with your ultimate choice for some time. If you get it completely wrong you will have to go through some expense again to rectify the problem.

If you are thinking about bedrooms and hallways and perhaps kitchen preparation areas, you need to have good lighting to perform your task. In this case you could install ceiling lighting, either recessed or pendant.  

In hallways pendants are a good choice as it will light the space well in which to receive your guests and family coming home on dark evenings.

I’m personally not fond of chandeliers because they are fiddly to clean. But if you like them they are an ideal choice for dining and entertaining areas. They are available to be used with different light sources such as energy saving bulbs or fluorescent lighting.  Make sure that you add a dimmer switch to change the atmosphere.

Pendant lights are ideal for kitchen preparation areas as they cast their light down and not in your face.  If you have a seating area in your kitchen, standing or table lamps will give an extra intimacy in those surroundings.

As you can see, each room in the home has specific requirements. Whereas working areas need good overhead lighting, the areas for relaxing need more subtle lighting to create a more intimate setting.
