Lighting Accessories

Your lighting won't be complete without some additional accessories. Whether you already have a lighting fixture that you need a bulb for or you have a lamp that could do with an update, lighting accessories are essential for maintaining, updating and controlling your lights.

What lighting accessories do I need?


Light bulbs are the main ingredient of lighting so get the first step right by choosing the right bulb. There are incandescent, fluorescent, compact fluorescent, halogen or LED light bulbs to choose from and all sorts of styles to go for if you're thinking of showing off your lighting with an exposed bulb. The type of bulb you choose will have an effect on the type of light that will be produced, so deciding on a bulb is not a quick decision, especially if you're choosing it for the main source of light in a room.

Next, you might want to think about lamp bases if you're going for some table or floor lamps, and then lampshades. These will also affect the quality and power of your light, but hopefully your choices will mostly be about the design and style of your lamps rather than anything else. Buying bases and lampshades separately is a good idea if you want the option to mix up the styles and colours of your lighting from time to time. If you have a ceiling light then you can also alter the look of your light by changing the shade. From paper globes to patterned drum shades and traditional conical shapes, there are a plethora of shade styles and designs to run wild with. For those that want to make a grand feature of their lighting, there are even ceiling roses available online for you to take a look at. These are plaster mouldings that sit in the centre of your ceiling and act as a frame for your ceiling light.

Lighting is not all about ceiling lights and lamps; there is under cabinet lighting, outdoor lighting, strip lighting, spotlights and uplighting for all the areas that are slightly harder to illuminate. For these light fixtures you might need to seek out some lighting hardware to make sure you have all the components and parts to make sure your lighting works efficiently. For the ultimate in home lighting, there is also the option to use lighting controls and timers so that your lights can be turned on, dimmed and turned off automatically via central controls. This will save your home energy in the long run if it avoids light being wasted in empty rooms.
