The Right Lights for the Home

The Right Lights for the Home

Your home should be your haven, your sanctuary, your respite from the rest of the world. It should be cosy, comfortable, and functional but above all, it should reflect your personality. Your home should be a beacon of light at the end of the tunnel that is the working week. And, because you don't want your light at the end of the tunnel to be swathed in darkness, you need to choose the right lights for your home, too.

When it comes to your home, SND is the ultimate supplier for lighting in Birmingham and the West Midlands.  Our extensive range is suitable for all areas of your home, from the bedroom to the bathroom; the dining room to the patio!

The most important part about lighting your home is choosing the right light for the right room - it really can make or break the room, the ambience and even your mood! Can you imagine cooking dinner and trying to read the recipe book with soft lighting from a lamp, or trying to read at the end of the night with a harsh overhead light disrupting the peace?

By pairing the right light to the right room, your home lighting could soon be the envy of all your friends, throughout Birmingham and beyond.

If you're in need of a helping hand, a little guidance or are simply looking for a little inspiration for lighting around the home, then read on, as we have SND has put together some ideas to ensure your home is as perfect for you as it can be.


Bedrooms are one of the most used rooms in the house. We all need sleep, and your bedroom lighting should reflect this. Soft, romantic and twinkly lights that mimic the stars are perfect to help you sit back and relax before drifting off into a peaceful sleep.

Dressing Room

In keeping with looking your best, it is important to have as much natural light as possible in your dressing room. That being said, during winter, natural light is sparsely meaning we need to invest in an alternative. Bright, spotlights work well here, especially placed behind a mirror to show the very best version of you possible.


If there are any places in your home that need bright lighting, it is the bathroom and the kitchen. Cooking in the dark is no fun, and although candles at bath time can often be an adult essential, they aren't so practical when bathing the kids or tending to a scraped knee.

Living Room

The living room serves many purposes. It can be playgroup, it can be a library, it can be cosy and comfortable or it can be a place for work. A dimmer light and plenty of lamps work perfectly in the living room, allowing you to adjust your lighting needs accordingly.


It won't do to forget about the outside lighting of your home, now will it? Lanterns to guide you down the garden path or a porch light to help you dig the keys out from the bottom of your bag are after dark essentials - and they look good, too.

It just goes to show that with a little bit of planning and care, the lighting in your house can really make a home everything you need, and more.
