When the new decorating bug bites at the start of spring, there are always many many ideas floating around and competing with other schemes for that tiny pot of money.  Most families are not flush in the depths of winter – having endured, well ok, sometimes enjoyed, the christmas and new year festivities, the spondoolies are very often at the tightest they will be.  This is when a little ingenuity is required.  How to improve the inside decor, or even the princely patio area, without having to rip everything out and starting completely afresh.

Going online and browsing the sites dedicated to the subject of lighting and all the ins and outs – or rather ons and offs, can be a most worthwhile way to spend an hour or so.  The new lighting schemes available for house or garden offer tremendous flexibility but from a specialist, need not flood the budget as it were.
