The room may already have a mainbut, when you don’t fancy full beam, there are other options for ‘lightening’ the mood. Kitchen wall lights and spotlights help create a relaxing ambience; they add a softer touch, without compromising any of the space.
If you are looking to highlight pictures or textured wallpaper, the soft glow of wall lights will do exactly that. Spotlights, on the other hand, help on a practical level. Ever wished you could turn the lights down low while preparing the evening meal, particularly when guests are present? Now you can - while still maintaining an elegant aesthetic. As well as the visual benefits, subdued lighting enhances a relaxed environment - the ideal accompaniment to your evening meal following a typically busy day.
Speaking of relaxation, nothing beats a soak in the tub. Harsh, bright lighting isn’t the illuminator of choice for most of us looking to drift away on a wave of essential oils, and candles aren’t always practical. Luckily, our bathroom lighting presents multiple options, with bathroom wall lights or spotlights able to provide the softer light you’re looking for, the ideal backdrop to any rejuvenating experience. Read a magazine or sip some wine, toning down the brightness as you work on bringing your energy levels back up.
But lighting isn’t just about highlighting the indoors, withsuch as outdoor spotlights and wall lights perfect for the warmer months - ideal when you want to keep a BBQ going well into the summer nights. And let’s be honest, they look beautiful alongside the stars. Illuminate your prize roses, throw a little light across the pond. Who needs moonlight?
WHAT MATERIALS AND COLOURS ARE SPOTLIGHTS AND WALL LIGHTS AVAILABLE IN?
Forever at the forefront of what’s hot and what’s not, Habitat has a selection of wall lights and spotlights in a multitude of colours. Classics come in the form of black, white and silver, while copper and grey represent the more trend-led tones. White on white can seem as if the light comes out of nowhere, while grey is perfect for those colours schemes that also incorporate many shades of blue.
Material-wise we have many sleek and contemporary metal options, while glass designs also break away from the norm - we suggest buying a decorative light bulb to really bring the latter to life. Finally, let’s not forget plaster, which often can be painted to suit your chosen colour scheme. (That’s certainly an idea we won’t throw any shade at.)
