Adding picture lights to your living spaces will inject a sense of class and sophistication. They can be used to highlight your favourite prints, artwork or photographs, or for a more traditional feel, placed above a mirror.
Available in a range of different sizes, styles and finishes, picture lights can be placed in contemporary or period homes. Whilst a hard-wired picture light will require an electrician to install, a battery-operated option offers much easier installation. Opting for LED means you can do your bit for the planet as they will use far less energy than traditional halogen bulbs.
When you’ve chosen and hung a really great piece of artwork for your home – or maybe you’ve collected a number of pieces to be displayed together – the finishing touch is a great picture light that can help highlight the beauty of the piece, whatever time of the day or night. Picture lights are exactly as they sound – small lights that are designed to sit above pictures. Our range of picture lights includes styles with heads that can be moved, so you can angle the direction of the light to hit the light perfectly, and there are different lengths too – between 400mm and 600mm.
As you’d expect, there are a huge range of finishes when it comes to picture lights, which means that you can get the exact look to suit your home. You might decide on a sleek black picture light to match the frame on your picture, or you might decide on a classic brass or gold – and maybe a shiny chrome or silver to match other elements in your room. A picture light is a small accessory, but it has a lot to add to a space – and although it is a small thing, you can even use the switch as a feature too. You’ll find switches that are in-line with the light, while others have a pull cord for a more traditional look – while others still are controlled by a remote control, so you can’t see the switch at all.
Many of our picture lights have inbuilt LEDs, which means they are super-bright but don’t need a lot of power – so you can choose between plug in styles, and battery powered ones. The flexibility that LED lights offer also means that you can find dimmable picture lights, so you can get the perfect ambience for your home, whatever the time of day and night.
