lighting makes such a statement in a room, it should be incorporated into a
design scheme at the very beginning. Think about placing a feature pendant
light in a key position to create a dramatic focal point. Also consider wall
lights, picture lights and step lights when laying out your electrical plan.
Don't forget to put all key lighting on dimmers to create the right kind of
ambience when required. There is a huge range of contemporary fittings out
there so take your time to find great pieces to compliment your decor scheme.
Consider textured, organic, maritime and vintage fittings to create a point of
difference. Shop around for some great ambient lighting like table lamps and
floor lamps to create a lovely, relaxed mood in the evening. A
combination of decorative lamps creates a warm and reduces the need for
excessive use of down lights.
