There are more types of lighting available than ever today, from both stylistic and functional points of view. When considering which style, material or illumination source to use, remember that good lighting is an absolutely essential ingredient in the look, feel and function of a room.

A strategically placed table, floor, wall or pendant lamp can completely transform a room, and an unexpectedly modern piece of lighting in a traditional setting can transform the entire space. Here are some tips for how to make it work.
