From the tiniest tealight to the most ostentatious chandelier, lighting can make a huge difference to your home.

Statement lighting is a great way to add impact to your interior decor scheme and you can have great fun hunting down the perfect style to create the right vibe for each room. Looking for overblown elegance? Go for an extravagant chandelier in crystal, and soft metallic hues such as gold, copper and bronze. After a more industrial vibe? Exposed vintage-style Edison bulbs, brushed steel and black work perfectly. Pendants with striking shades make for a quick style change, while horizontal fittings which cover more ceiling space create impact without dominating the space.

See your main light feature as a work of art – a real focal point for the room – and add ambient lighting from alternative sources such as lamps and candles to create a cosy feel as the nights draw in.
