    The fireplace looks similar to this polished steel fire grate, which can simply be inserted into an existing fireplace hole.

          Illuminate a displayFor careful curators, it’s important to have the best backdrop for collections. Shelving painted the same colour as your walls is a good way to go, since there will be nothing to distract the eye from the objects you want to show off. Here, two trios of box shelving either side of the chimney breast make for an elegant and unusual twist on the low, built-in cabinet topped with alcove shelves so many of us will be familiar with. But what really turns this into a standout feature is the simple addition of LED strips at the top back of each box. It’s a tip that will really lift all sorts of shelves and cabinets, and is a simple job for an electrician.

          Light personal features in your homeAccent lighting is all about picking out those features that matter to you. Great accent lighting can be almost hidden in full view, making your eye focus on the feature brought to life by the light. LED offers great opportunities for accent lighting with remarkably small in-wall, uplight, downlight and linear fittings available for the tightest of spaces.

          Highlight furnitureA feature of many period properties is original, built-in furniture, such as cupboards in alcoves. In this room, lights mounted on the period bookshelves enhance and transform them into a beautiful feature, where they might otherwise have looked rather imposing. Large pieces of furniture can be a useful fixing point for lights, particularly in old houses where it may be difficult to attach fittings to the ceiling or walls. The earlier you plan what furniture is going in to a room the more you can integrate it into your lighting design.

          Incorporate lightingAny shelving will be instantly elevated with some inset LED spotlights or strip lighting. Floating box shelves like these are particularly well suited, as the boxes appear to glow, creating a wonderful atmosphere at night. Although the primary function may be to highlight ornaments and pictures, it also adds an extra layer of lighting to the whole room, so a dimmer could be a good idea, too. You could even use shelves with built-in lighting designed for kitchens.
