Each room needs its own ambience, so consider chadeliers and pendants that provide excellent ambience.

For task lighting you can use a combination of desk lamps an ceiling spotlights.

For home lighting, always avoid harsh shadows.

Layering is absolutely delicious in any home - for example, a spotlights together with an opaque pendant.

Sometimes you can get an unbelievable effect by focusing on a feature object, like art or a table, using a floor lamp or ceiling spotlight.

In bedrooms use lamps that are adjustable, as you will definitely want to control where the light is pointed.

The most important thing I think to remember is to always use warm white lights in your home - never cool white or daylight white.

For ceiling downlights, make sure the spacing is uniform - electricians are NOT lighting designers!

When using chandeliers, don't make them too big for the room. That is a very common mistake.

If pendants are over a table, make sure they are not glaring into people's eyes.

I like table lamps. They are classic and very good for layering and ambience.

Make sure that pendant lights are chandeliers are narrower than the table they are on top of.

The foyer and entrance is absolutely critical as a first impression, so really put top quality designer lights there.

In bathrooms always use frosted globes.

In hallways and kitchen island, put lights in sets of threes ... works really well.

Make sure recessed lights have a wide beam angle otherwise they will vecome spot lights.

For mirrors, ensure you have lights all around the mirror otherwise you will get weird shadows.

A chandelier in the centre of your living room will spread light evenly through your hall, banishing shadows from the corners. Chandeliers not only act as a light fitting, but also as fabulous home décor. You could get a vintage metal chandelier to create a greater visual interest or a classic crystal one to add elegance to your space. You have the option of using dimmer switches in the chandeliers, too, to provide varying levels of light!
