Three ways to light up your home

27 May 2021

For many homeowners, creating a warm and cosy ambience is the ultimate goal. A home with warmth can give more than a welcoming, relaxing environment - it can increase house appeal to buyers and be friendlier to the environment. A light is never just a light. From pendants and spotlights to table and floor lamps, the options for lighting up your home are vast. Whether you’re designing your first home or need to freshen up your current one, Lighting Plus has everything you need to create the perfect ambience.


A wall in Resene Merino perfectly complements the wooden feature of the pendant lamp from Lighting Plus. Try pairing the lamp with a weaved rug and a floor stained in Resene Colorwood Natural for a Scandi-style look.

The value of having pendant fixtures in your home is that they bring light down from the ceiling and pull it closer to where you need it without using up surface space. Typically used for general and task lighting, pendants can also be used as a striking personal design statement. The right pendant can add a daring touch to a simple room, sparking conversation among guests. At Lighting Plus the pendant choices are many. Their consultants can help you make a choice that matches your vision for your home.


This Madera Lamp from Lighting Plus works well with a wall in Resene Black White and earthy, wooden décor.

No room is complete without the timeless charm, modern aesthetic and smart functionality of a table or floor lamp. Not to be underestimated when it comes to bringing warmth to your home, lamps are ideal for highlighting zones and adding extra light where needed.


The Black
Baril 7W LED Spotlight Bar from Lighting Plus makes a statement in this kitchen.  Team with Resene Alabaster and accents in Resene Nero.

Ceiling spotlights with LED bulbs draw less power and typically have longer lives than older style bulbs. Spotlights do what the box says, directing light to specific zones or objects. They can be a great solution when floor or surface space is limited.
