What makes the perfect home? While everyone is likely to have their own definition, there are definitely features that most of us can agree on.

Most people would aim for a home that is bright during daylight hours and warm and cosy at night time.

One way to ensure your house gets plenty of natural light is to have a building with large windows that are south-facing, letting in as much sunlight as possible. But what if you aren’t lucky enough to have that with your house?

Make your house a home

Choosing the right lights for each room in your home is very important. The height of the ceiling, the size of the room, the design features, the colour scheme and the function of the room all play a part when deciding what lights are best for you.

For example, you can make your rooms feel warmer by using warm-coloured lighting. Reds, yellows, oranges and browns all add depth and warmth to your home.

If your home lacks natural light you can invest in bright lights that simulate daylight.

It might also help to buy dimmable lights so that you can change the brightness and intensity of the lights to suit the occasion, the season, the weather or the time of day.

You might even be able to find LEDs that change colour, meaning you can have a different ambience depending on your mood at the time.
