What Houzz contributors are saying:
Layer your lightingIf you’ve moved into a period property that hasn’t been recently renovated, it’s important to think about rewiring, despite the often eye-watering cost. The principles of ambient, task and accent lighting apply in period homes as much as in any other property, so when you’re upgrading your electrical plan, factor this into the layout. Consider installing 5-amp sockets so you can turn table lamps on at the wall. Arrange for light switches and technological controls to be stacked neatly, so you don’t end up with everything scattered across the wall.When you’re choosing individual fittings, be consistent and try to avoid mixing lots of different styles. Scour the high street, where it’s possible to pick up beautiful statement pendants for very good prices, and go to specialist suppliers for investment pieces. Also, feel free to make a statement with modern light fittings. In this simple, contemporary bedroom, the up-to-the-minute design looks stunning teamed with the traditional ceiling rose.Find 21st century lighting ideas for Georgian and Victorian homesHave you reinstated period features in your home?
