Lighting made easy
We hear how to light up your life this autumn from the team at Dusk Lighting.
As the daylight hours start to reduce and autumn creeps in, the need for good lighting in our homes becomes increasingly apparent. We hear from Dusk Lighting’s Business Development Manager, Jamie Moxey who tells us: “Here at Dusk Lighting, we pride ourselves on being able to source a wide range of lighting products at competitive prices. Primarily an online retail company, we sell an eclectic array of affordable lighting across the UK and internationally.” Based at Exeter Airport Business Park, the showroom boasts a representative selection of what the company offers on it’s website and the friendly and experienced team are always available to assist you with technical and style advice.
“Concrete, clear glass and brushed nickel are the most popular and fashionable finishes appearing on the market…”
For some, choosing lighting can be a daunting prospect – the vast number of products on the market combined with all the electrical jargon can make the process of finding the right lighting a little intimidating. Another misconception is that lighting is costly, and although in some cases this can be true, sometimes just a small addition can completely transform your space, without breaking the bank.
So, what’s on trend? Jamie explains: “Concrete, clear glass and brushed nickel are the most popular and fashionable finishes appearing on the market and the combination of industrial and vintage finishes has remained popular alongside Scandi and modern minimalist designs. Comparably we’ve seen a sharp fall in demand for copper finishes, crystal chandeliers and art deco designs. However, it’s not about following a trend – it’s about being different and achieving what you want, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box.”
Jamie also strongly suggests that before visiting the showroom, you have a browse on the website to get a feel for the style and themes that will complement your interior design project. Additionally, it’s worth considering how to make the most of your space; is functionality the most important objective… or creating a cosy ambient mood, or both? Finally, it’s important to consider your budget and to try and stick to it – once you’ve considered these aspects it’s time to make full use of Dusk Lighting’s free advisory service to help find
the perfect lighting solution for you.
