43 Unordinary Traditional Lighting That Make Your Flat Look Great

If you are looking to invest in some traditional lighting for your home or a business premise such as a restaurant or hotel then you’ve probably begun shopping around both online and in shops. This is the only way to get an idea of what’s on offer and what sort of budget you should be setting aside.

By and large there are two ways of buying traditional lighting. You can buy the real thing, examples of original pieces which are classes as antiques today or you can buy new lights which are simply made in the traditional style.

Of course if you are looking to buy specifically an antique as an investment piece then the answer of which to pick is obvious. Antique lighting can be found in so many different locations that it’s difficult to list them all: car boot sales, antique shops and online.

Anyone who simply wants traditional lighting and who isn’t necessarily bothered whether or not it is genuine antique should heed a word of warning about lights that were made many decades ago.

A common problem associated with buying lighting in this way is that loss and damage to the lighting sets isn’t uncommon. This could mean that you are able only to buy a chandelier because the accompanying wall lights have been lost or damaged years ago.

Another problem is that older varieties may not be compatible with modern light bulbs, rendering them useless as actual light fittings. This problem has become more pronounced since conventional light bulbs were ousted in favour of energy saving varieties in the UK.

Buying traditional lighting which is new rather than antique does not present these problems. It is also much cheaper, on average, than antique fixtures. You’ll find many specialist light suppliers who stock traditional style lighting made in traditional ways from traditional materials so that you can be sure that you’re buying an authentic piece.
