Whether lighting a dark corner of a room or providing an armchair with some extra light, floor lamps are remarkably versatile, easy to move and cheap to power. Adjustable floor lamps give you even more scope for manoeuvre and can be placed anywhere in the home except the bathroom.
Coloured bulbs take cheap lighting to a whole new level. Transform any living room, bedroom or even a kitchen with a little colour. Things to think about include colour temperature, student accommodation can be cold and so choosing a warm colour, such as orange, will make the place feel warmer and also create a dramatic effect – “shall we retire to the red room?”
It’s also worth noting that using LED bulbs in your student home can save you stacks of cash, up to 90% on your lighting energy bill in fact and they also mean you’re doing your bit for the environment.
