Lighting effects

Lighting should not just be a functional purchase, but also a chance to dramatically update your home. When purchasing a light you should think about the type of mood you want to create- think about the below:


Ambient lighting

Ambient lighting is functional, everyday lighting and is important in every room in your home. You could consider using a dimmer to create a softer mood in rooms such as living rooms and dining areas.

Task lighting

Task lighting offers a concentrated light which provides the best visibility for tasks that require concentration. Desk lamps offer a direct and intense light which is perfect for reading, while kitchens or cooking areas are best lit with spot or wall lights to provide a focused beam of light.

Accent lighting

Accent lighting can be used to highlight key features of a room, such as a painting or ornament. This type of lighting adds depth and drama to your space and is generally used in addition to ambient lighting.

Types of lighting

Ceiling lights

We offer a wide variety of ceiling lights, from ornate chandeliers to modern pendant lights, which will perfectly suit your interior style. If you want to install a ceiling light without an electrician, our EasyFit range means you can fit decorative ceiling lights by yoursef without the need to disturb the electricity supply. Remember to measure your ceiling height before you buy a ceiling light to gauge where the light will hang down to.

Floor lamps

Floor lamps provide a standalone source of light which will easily fit into any room in your home. Create a design feature with striking floor lamps or use an uplighter to brighten cosy reading corners.

Table lamps

Table lamps offer excellent versatility and can be placed strategically throughout your home to bring light to every area. From practical desk lights to bedside lamps, our range includes a variety of styles and sizes to suit your needs.

Wall & spotlights

Wall lights are perfect for adding ambience to your decor or can be used to make an area, such as a hallway or stairway, look much longer. Spotlights can be used to highlight a painting or ornament or can be installed to offer ideal task lighting for kitchens or bathrooms.
