Shop by Room
It completely makes sense to choose your lighting by room as different types of lighting suit different applications. This is one of the three main considerations to keep in mind when choosing your fittings. The other two are room size and style of décor. If you choose your lighting in terms of these three factors you won’t go far wrong.
You may also want to bear in mind that different types of lighting will work in different ways in a particular room, for example a standard pendent light with a large shade will have a much more relaxed feel than a bright chandelier and therefore completely change the look of the décor. The Kelvin colour temperature of the light bulb will also have a big impact on the tone and feel of the room.

For a loft conversion?
Investing some money into a loft conversion can make so much difference in terms of space in your home. It can also add to the value of your property.
