I'm not kidding guys, I was awake until 1am (!) last night looking for the specific dining room light as the electrics are all going in next week. I started my internet search at 8pm! That's 5 hours wasted trying to find a bloody light shade that if you looked at, is so generic. What's actually wrong with me?? Do you get this too? I think I've found something to help...Read More
As we live in a flat built in the late 1800s, our wiring behind the ceiling rose had just 2 wires not the standard 3, so we had to get a sparky in to rewire and fit it for us. She did an excellent job at a really low cost (£25). It's one thing to bear in mind if you're thinking of doing a DIY job. In a new build, or in houses post 1920s I'd imagine it would be fairly simple. But for the sake of £25, we felt a lot safer having an expert come in to take over. And a huge high five was in order at the fact our electrician was a woman. What a legend.
The solution? A dimmer switch. Easy to fit and solves all of my problems. If you're decorating a child's bedroom and want a more even spread of light throughout the room, I'd consider spotlights and adding a dimmer switch to alter the brightness. For us, spot lights are a little too modern for the traditional look I want to achieve so a dimmer switch instead of the conventional on/off light is perfect for our needs.
