Homeowners and businesses in Merseyside and the North West have become “switched on” to one of the best ways to change the décor and atmosphere of any room – let there be light!
Modern lighting options are more varied and creative than ever before. By simply changing light fixtures, you can cost-effectively transform living or working spaces.
Placement by Design
In some cases, lighting is being altered and refocused to fool the eye of the beholder. Carefully positioned spot lights can make rooms look bigger, or make statement walls and features more noticeable.
Using dimmed lighting in certain places can soften harsh features and manage more open and featureless spaces.
The quirky upcycling trend has also reached domestic and commercial lighting options. A quick search on the internet and you can find camera tripod lights, bulbs arrayed around a hanging bicycle frame or fittings that incorporate everything from colanders and kettles, to bottles and even buckets.
Matching Lighting to Interior Design
A lot depends on your interior design, of course. The Industrial style of décor is in fashion, putting factory and warehouse fixtures into homes and restaurants.
This often means large pendant lights hanging from ceilings, which needs to be the subject of careful surveying and installation.
In other homes and workplaces, the emphasis is on a more natural and “authentic” look to match a strong commitment to the environment. This can mean creating unobtrusive lighting using the ultimate in energy saving systems.
If you are more swayed by the fashion for bling, pastel shades and unicorns, then putting up small streams of lights can be a great style statement.
Lighting in the Right Hands
Whatever type of lighting you choose, electrical fittings are never something that should be left to the office handyman or resident DIY fan, no matter how confident they feel they are. You would be far safer to find electrical contractors in Liverpool who are experienced with all modern lighting materials and aims.
Also, with so many choices of styles and types of lighting, it can be hard to know what will work best in your space, to suit your lifestyle or business requirements.
Get in touch with B & D Electrical Liverpool and we would be happy to “shed some light” on this illuminating topic.
