Lighting is such an important feature in any home. Here are some of our top tips to help you make the most of your lighting plan.

DON'T

  • DON’T limit your pendants to just the dining room. Think about suspending a pendant in a corner to create a cosy reading nook, or eliminate bedside clutter and hang pendants either side of the bed.
  • DON’T be afraid to mix your trends. Mix ‘n match industrial, coastal or mid-century style lights in modern spaces for designer look home.
  • DON’T forget to add dimmers wherever you can.

DO

  • DO use a mix of task, ambient and accent lighting in every room. In the kitchen, combine downlights with pendants over a workbench, and accent cupboards or an island bench with strip lighting.
