As the clocks go back for another year, and the nights start to draw in, it’s increasingly important to make sure that our homes are lit effectively.

Lighting has been proven to contribute towards our wellbeing. Our circadian rhythm, A.K.A our ‘body clock’, is to thank for this, which manages our sleeping patterns and energy levels.

As lighting company Pooky explain ‘Natural daylight stimulates our brains to produce the ‘feel-good’ hormone seratonin, making us feel alert and motivated. Then as light levels begin to fade in the evening, our bodies respond by producing the hormone melatonin, to help prepare us for sleep.’

When natural daylight hours are reduced during the darker winter mornings and evenings, it’s vitally important to choose the right artificial lighting to positively support your wellbeing. Depending on the function of each space there will be different lighting solutions most suitable.

To help refresh your interior this season we’ve done the hard work for you – here are our top picks of high street lighting products to transition into winter.
