I haven’t ever done this before so I thought I would try it today as something different. You can copy and print it and keep it somewhere useful. Let me know what you think because I can do others.

    After hearing you mention lighting on the podcast, I spent yesterday looking at all your “how to get the lighting right” post. Then this morning voila! you’ve made a checklist. So useful! Yes please to more of these. 🙂

    I can’t thank you enough for purring the graft in on our behalf, I keep reading up on lighting advice and promptly either forgetting it or getting confused!

    • Charlotte Oswald 13th February 2020 at 10:05 am

      That was of course putting not purring, I blame the cat on my lap!

    This is so useful – a printable checklist is a great thing. (Although I wish I’d known to avoid a symmetrical grid before installing a symmetrical grid.)

      I’m so glad. And don’t we all! I have a runway of downlighters in my kitchen that are pointless!

  • Angela 13th February 2020 at 8:44 am

    Now this is something that I’ve sorely needed for a while. I’ve read many articles about the importance of the correct lighting but never been able to get my head around it properly as it relates to my space, so a big thank you for this. 🙂

      I’m so pleased it is helpful to you.

  • Sandra 13th February 2020 at 7:42 am

    I think the checklist is great. Some folks like checklist and others prefer actual examples. I wonder if it would be possible to also include an example of a lighting diagram for a sitting room. With some of the points listed – furniture, artwork, pendant light etc.,

      Hi Sue, I’m glad you like it. I have written extensively about getting the lighting right in the past if you would like to search the blog here for this series How to Get The Lighting Right.

    Thank you Kate for this quick informative guide. We’re now at the bare bones stage of renovating a 500 year old farmhouse so this will come in very handy in deed xx

    What advice do you have for kitchens?

    • Kate Watson-Smyth 13th February 2020 at 9:03 am

      I have written about kitchens and lighting extensively over the eight years of the blog and it is now a massive, and free, resource. Do have a rummage round using the search engine for what you need. Posts include how to get the lighting right room by room as well as how to plan the perfect kitchen.
