Lighting is a personal affair - whatever you choose should suit the look of your space, but the level of illumination needs to be practical for the way you intend to use it. There’s no doubting that a good light setup can enhance, even transform a space. Habitat’s collection of contemporary lighting features designs to suit any room, style or look.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF LIGHTING AVAILABLE?
When it comes to illuminating your home, lights come in various forms and guises. Commonly, a room will have a ceiling light, often in the shape of a pendant fixture with a ceiling shade. These can either be purchased as one item, or you can take a simple pendant and customise with a shade of your choice.
Other permanent forms of lighting include wall lights and spotlights. Wall lights can be used in areas where you want to add ambience or softer lighting, while spotlights are often good for use on the ceilings of rooms where you need more focused light.
Added to these options are lamps. Another source of softer lighting that’ll set the mood a treat, floor lamps are versatile workers that are at home in living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and more. For smaller rooms where floor space is limited, a table lamp might be a better bet. Whether on a side table, bedside cabinet, or desk, table lamps can provide further ambient lighting, or illuminate your workspace as you study.
Like with ceiling lights, some of our table lamps and floor lamps can be customised to suit your style. Choose your base, and then finish it off with a lamp shade. For a lower energy and modern take on lighting, try our LED range which features lamps, decorative bulbs and more. Ideal for adding a personal touch to your bedroom or living quarters, our fairy lights and decorative lights are attractive finishing touches.

WHAT TYPE OF LIGHTING IS BEST FOR YOUR ROOM?
Depending on the room you’re renovating, refurbishing or rejuvenating, there are some practical considerations to be made.
In bigger living rooms, a medley of floor lamps, spotlights and table lamps work wonders because you’ll need ambient light for atmosphere, and focused light for reading and work. For making a statement, which, let’s face it, is key in areas like the dining room or living room where guests are entertained, round off the look with the arresting impact of one our Habitat pendants.
For smaller, intimate spaces like a bedroom or study, pair glass table lamps with fairy lights for a gorgeous, glowy effect. In bathrooms or kitchens, spotlights are often the go to choice, providing ample lighting for completing manual tasks like chopping and cooking, shaving and make-up applying.
Many of our lighting collections come with designs across the full spectrum, so you can usually find an ideal partner for a table lamp or ceiling shade. Grab the full collection to make a statement with your lighting.
