Step into the light – lighting ideas for all budgets

Lighting ideas for all budgets
Caravaggio Lights – Matt Collage

I’ve talked a lot about lighting in previous blog posts, but have been wanting to do one on lighting ideas for all budgets for quite a while! Lighting is at the top of my list when transforming the look and feel of a space – but it’s often one of the elements that is so easy to get wrong. There’s so much to take into account too, such as the height of the ceilings, size of the room, function of the space and of course budget. I’m not going to go into how to choose the right lighting for your home in this post – I’ll save that one for another time! But if you know what type and style of lighting you’re looking for – then here are some lighting ideas for all budgets for you to get started.
