Ever since we moved into our home 4 years ago and began doing it up, one of the things that we’ve actually put a fair bit of consideration to is the lighting. Often overlooked, having the right (or wrong for that matter!) lighting can make such a difference to the atmosphere and feel of your home.
In the past ceiling spotlights had a bit of a bad rep for being a big draw on power, but LED bulbs have totally changed that perception. An LED light can run for tens of thousands of hours without giving up the ghost (wowsers!), which works out at about 3 years constant use, or up to 15 years with much less, depending on how your room is used.
These days, you can choose different light colours as well as angles to garner different lighting effects and the right amount of lighting for a space. Some LEDs (like the ones in our loft room) can be used with a dimmer switch. If you’re feeling fancy, you could also have your lights installed in groups for different lighting feels, such as in kitchens and bathrooms where you might to ‘zone’ your lights.

Do you have spotlights in your home? If so, where?
