It will usually be an enormous pleasure to discover that your new conservatory is a very light and cheerfully bright room, particularly on the all too often grey days we have in this country and, not least of all, during the evenings when the sun sets a little earlier than you would wish.
However, during the evening and certainly on dull and grey days lighting will be necessary. Each conservatory will have a different requirement and it is therefore very important to carefully consider how much lighting you will require at different times of the year and where you would ideally wish to position each unit within your sun room.
The most obvious places are wall lights, table lamps and a central light which could be beneath a ceiling fan if you have a Victorian conservatory. There are also standard lamps, many different fluorescent tubes and spotlights. Choose the position for switches carefully and always consider being able to illuminate the conservatory from inside your home so that you would not be walking out into a darkened room. Dimmer switches are extremely popular as there are many occasions when you would wish to have subdued lighting with perhaps candles on the table so that you may relax and enjoy the stars.
The most popular choice is usually two wall lights with a dimmer switch backed, up by a couple of table lamps. You may wish to add a central light either by itself or incorporated within a decorative and cooling ceiling fan.
Exterior lighting should also be considered. A spotlight onto your pond, fountain or waterfall will be particularly attractive, also a flood light onto your lawn and surrounding trees or shrubbery. Enjoying your favourite tipple in the conservatory with subdued lighting and an attractively illuminated garden needs to be experienced to fully appreciate the spectacular effect. Lighting beneath trees directed up into their foliage should not be a uniquely priveleged feature created and enjoyed only in ornamental gardens or stately homes.
