Modern lighting has so much to offer, including low energy options which not only look fabulous but help the environment. Light-Emitting Diode or (LED) lighting runs at a low temperature and the best quality bulbs can last up to 50,000 hours.

Contemporary sunken low energy decking lights in multi-colours apply that special touch to any outside area and adding an LED remote control will enable you to change the lighting colours and patterns at your leisure.

Low Voltage lights will give any chandelier, wall light, table lamp or spot a sharp brilliance that will illuminate an area. The bulbs may be tiny but they give out a very bright light as they heat to a higher temperature than the conventional incandescent bulbs.

Table lamps and standards give an opulence to a room adding that special detail to larger areas as well as essential light to areas where overhead lighting is restricted.

High ceilings or lighting over breakfast bars and dining tables are the domain of the pendant or lantern light giving emphasis to specific areas. Many of our fittings can be made to measure and supplied with additional cable and chain to furnish an extra long drop.

If recessed lighting is needed the choice is vast with many variations on design, finishes and features such as directional fittings, special fire rated fittings and modern crystal/glass fittings. These can also be IP rated so you can have something special and modern in the bathroom or that outdoor area.

Modern outdoor lighting can enhance the look of any exterior space whether it's a beautiful hand made nickel fitting or an Italian low energy fitting or a modern Scandinavian outside light, pendants or wall lights can be used to illuminate the exterior of a building or home giving it that warm inviting feeling.

Getting the lighting right in a home will really add to your enjoyment of it. If you walk into a room that has that special feeling you will want to spend time there. This is why it is so important to get the lighting right for the function of the room.

In the main living areas you may want a central fixture which can make a statement like a chandelier this can be as large as you wish but you must consider the height available and the overall size of the room. It can be just as big a mistake to put up a centre piece that is too small as it is too big!

Take into consideration the styles you have in the room already and if you want the fitting to be a feature than more functional, think about the actual amount of light that you want in the room and then build your lighting requirements around this.

You can have a central masterpiece which can be supplemented with warm ambient table lamps and standard lamps. Two or three table lamps positioned around the room on tables, shelves or furniture to give a room a spacious feeling as the light radiates inward.

Adjustable reading lights beside a sofa or chair can also add the functional requirements needed for reading and handwork etc. Or wall lights and pendants on a dimmer switch can raise the level of illumination in a room without needing to adjust any of the other light sources.

Ensure to avoid glare if they are mounted too high. Indirect light from wall washers will create dramatic effects. Remember that the light given from wall washers will be coloured by the surfaces on which they are mounted.

Special design features in a room can be illuminated with picture lights or spots to highlight them.
