I'm ashamed to admit I have only bought 1 light cover for the house so far - a small black chandelier for the master bedroom which you can see a snippet of here. Every single other light in the house is a sad looking naked bulb protruding from the ceiling, and nothing makes a room look unfinished like an ugly bulb I can tell ya!
If I liked simple light shades that would be fine as we can install them ourselves, but I keep going for pendants which need to be fitted by an electrician. And on further inspection of our lighting we realised that there is no earth on our light fittings so not only do we need the electrician to fit the lights for us, we also need him to rewire an earth into each light fitting. This is going to cost us a lot of money so the plan is to keep costs down as much as we can by buying all the light covers we need so the electrician can install them all in one go.
We have already bought lights for the living room and guest bedroom and they are wrapped up in their boxes waiting patiently to be installed. I'm going to move the small black chandelier from the master bedroom into the craft room as I think it will look better in a smaller room.
So all that's left on the wish list for the rooms that we've completed are:
Master Bedroom - A larger light shade something bigger, blingy and dramatic
Man Cave - Something bright and modern and fun
Hallway - A funky glass pendant like these bubble glass chandeliers
Do you find picking lights difficult?
I just can't seem to make a decision and buy something!
