Things to Avoid Doing!

500w halogen lights

Unless you have a football field to light up

Dimmed PIR lights

A gross waste of energy and money

Bare fluorescent lights with random tube

See Fluorescent Lighting

Lights high up out of reach over stairs

A perfect recipe for serious injury

Halogen uplighters

A recipe for house fires. Often excessively power hungry too.

Plaster half-bowl uplighters

The only uplighter that manages to have none of the usual advantages of uplighting, and makes walls look terrible to boot.
