It is about making your home your own and transforming it into a space you really want to spend time in.It can surprise our clients to know that sometimes very big changes can occur, with only the smallest of alterations.

Take the lighting, this is the one area that can completely transform the atmosphere and all it takes is one lightbulb. The correct type of lighting is often all it takes to turn a cold, sterile room into a warm, ambient space. Whether it is the kind of lighting that is being changed – more light fittings or a simple change of bulb, our interior designers can offer the advice you need.

LED spots dimbaar are specially designed to work with LED dimmers, for example.

Whichever type of bulbs you have, you should check carefully with the manufacturer that they will work with your dimmer switch first.

INCANDESCENT BULBS

Because incandescent bulbs work by having a filament which heats up to provide light, they are vulnerable to burning out with overuse.

Using a dimmer switch is one way of substantially improving the lifespan of this delicate bulb.

Incandescent bulbs are the ones which are most likely to dim correctly with any type of dimmer switch. But always check before installing, just to be on the safe side.

Incandescent bulbs generally work well with even the cheapest type of dimmer switch and will usually dim all the way down to nearly off.

FLOURESCENT LIGHTING

Not everyone realises that their fluorescent lights can be dimmed – but they can be.

However, not every fluorescent light bulb will work with your dimmer switch. They should be fitted with a dimmable ballast, so check carefully before buying!

Even with the correct dimmer switch, a fluorescent bulb may not turn all the way down when dimmed.
LED LIGHTING INCLUDING LED SPOTSLIGHT

Often people with LED spotslight don’t think that they can be dimmed. Well, the good news is that they can be.

All kinds of LED lighting can be adapted for use with a dimmer switch – the correct type, of course.

Giving Your Home The Spanish Look

If you are currently stuck for ideas about transforming your home this summer, without making any major changes, Spanish influenced interior design might be able to give you a few hints.

Although some of the features of a traditional Spanish home may take a larger investment and greater time scale, plenty others are far easier to achieve, such as using dimmable led spot light.

Here are some of the key elements that can be incorporated into any contemporary living space to give it that warm, Mediterranean flavour.

WROUGHT IRON

The use of wrought iron is popular throughout Spain and can be easily added to your home.

It may be a simple replacement of the lamps and lighting arrangements, for something made out of iron.

It could be a decorative iron curtain pole with charming wrought iron end finials.

Perhaps you could introduce a beautiful wrought iron fireguard into the room.

There are many ways to bring this elegant feature into your living rooms which will instantly add a Spanish accent to it.

TILES

Tiles of all types are widely used throughout Spain and the Mediterranean region.

If the thought of having to tile an entire room seems like a lot of work and potentially too much expense, it does not have to be the case.

Spanish inspired design may be added as a runner on top of your pre-existing tiles. Particularly with a plainly tiled room, this can immediately add spice and colour to your space. And it didn’t have to take a long time to achieve.

You don’t need to tile an entire room or even a whole wall to get the look you desire.

Tiles may be used to make a feature out of recessed areas or any other smaller area in your home that you may want to draw the eye towards.

THE FLOOR

Traditional Spanish influenced design usually means beautiful dark hardwood flooring.

This can be a little expensive, possibly, but it will also last for a lifetime, with the correct care.

Other flooring solutions may include the use of slate or terracotta tiling, to stunning effect.

Because carpets are less usual in Spanish influenced design, you will probably be on the lookout for a decent sized area rug for your room.

Often, these will be the lighter colours of the palette. Light greens and gentle yellows offsetting a white backdrop.

Rugs have major advantages over carpeting in as that they can be swapped around as you please and more easily cleaned.

These are just a handful of suggestions for transforming your home into a Spanish inspired living space.
