It’s now quickly coming up to what most people consider to be the best part of the year as the 20th June is the official start to the Summer season and doesn’t seem that long ago since it was Christmas! So as the nights are now becoming warmer and clearer it may be time for you to think about getting your garden in shape for those lovely summer nights where you can sit outside and relax?
It’s the ideal time then to think about how you want to be able to illuminate your outdoor space and continue to enjoy the warm nights even after the Sun has gone away and there are a number of ways you can do this as our outdoor/garden lights are available in a variety of finishes and designs to allow you to choose the right ones to match in with your garden as with the right lighting you can add a special feeling to your outdoor space.
When people are choosing their new kitchen, lighting is often an afterthought. As with kitchen design, there are other factors that are thought about first such as appliances, flooring, and kitchen worktops etc. leaving lighting options until the last minute.
However, lighting design in your kitchen is very important to consider as the kitchen has become the central hub of the home. As families are busier, the kitchen tends to be used as a place for catching up with each other. With socialising at home now becoming more popular too, it makes it more important to have that area well-lit and well designed. We think your kitchen should be the brightest lit space in your home.
Additionally, kitchen areas are now not just a separate room in your home. They are more commonly open plan areas that flow into your living space, so it’s critical to try and blend in the lighting with other aspects of your home too. For example, if your living room has chrome lighting you could incorporate this into your kitchen carrying the theme throughout your home. You can also make use of lighting within your kitchen to highlight and define space.
