LED Lighting

LED lighting is the most popular and can be used in many applications to create the right look and feel for your home. They are ideal for providing bright, traditional looking light whilst being energy efficient.

LED lights use up to 90% less energy than standard lighting, reducing bills and saving you money. 

They come with a manufacturers warranty of 3 years making them a great investment.


LED's can be used in a wide variety of styles.

The small size of LED lights allows them to be put anywhere. They are very versatile as they can be purchased as lamp bulbs, strips of different lengths or panels of different sizes. They can be installed independently or arranged into several patterns and designs to achieve stunning visual light effects.

Smart Lighting Controls

Only being able to control your lights with a switch is a thing of the past. By installing lighting controls, you can control your lights with your smartphone, with sound activation, with motion activation, and more. Add a level of ease and convenience to the way you control your lighting by letting Ideal Electrical Solutions help install lighting controls in your Liverpool home.

Dimmer switches

A dimmer switch can be installed anywhere that an existing switch is in place. Replacing the current switch with a dimmer switch will allow you to change the lights brightness, so long as you are using a light bulb that is compatible with the dimmer you have chosen.

Emergency Lighting

New buildings generally have an emergency lighting system installed during the construction process to adhere to building regulations and local authority requirements. However, older buildings may need a new emergency light system or reconfiguration of the existing system to consider building or environmental changes.

Domestically Across Liverpool, it is common to see a large house converted into a HMO style building. It is a requirement by building regulations that all these buildings have emergency lighting in the event of an electrical fault both in personal and communal space, to protect the tenants.

One of the key needs of companies that standard domestic customers don’t have is the requirement of emergency lighting by law. Working to protect customers and staff, these lights illuminate hazardous areas, display emergency exit routes and require regular testing to be compliant with health and safety legislation.


Not only can we provide emergency lighting installations across Liverpool, but we can also offer companies ongoing preventative maintenance contracts which include regular testing. Meaning they don’t have to continually book throughout the year. We take full responsibility for the installations continued safety and functionality.

Stairway Lighting

For stair lighting to be functional, long-lasting, and impressive, it is important not only to make the right choice, but also to properly install it. If we decide on LED solutions, we can install the lighting ourselves. They are easy to install, with which even a non-professional person can handle.

Lighting of stairs before installation should be properly planned. The point is that the whole stairwell is properly lit and ensures safe movement of all the users of the building. Therefore, we are increasingly choosing solutions for LED'S, especially lighting sets, which allow separate illumination of each step. Installation of this type of set is quite simple. The led strip sticks to the front of the steps on the riser so that the tape does not obstruct the daily movement of the stairs. The straps are quite durable, so you do not have to worry that their accidental kick will cause any damage.

What is the newest trend in lighting?

Lighting is a key element of any interior design scheme. whatever kind of lighting option you choose can work to bring both functionality and character to a space.

As with every year, 2022 is seeing the rise of various stunning light trends that can be harnessed to fit a range of styles and design aesthetics. Whether you favour industrial loft vibes or prefer a farmhouse chic look, there’s plenty of ways that the right lighting can elevate your interiors even further.

We’ve picked some of the top lighting trends to inspire you to embrace something new and help breathe fresh life into your home!

Use lighting as a design focal point.

There will be elegant and extravagant light fittings coming through for every style, from contemporary to cottage core.

Thoughtfully placed, cleverly designed and carefully crafted ceiling lights will transform rooms. Lighting will become a starting point for design rather than being left until last.

Don’t be afraid to go bold with your ceiling lighting. Larger spaces can take more daring pieces but don’t shy away from unconventional light fittings in smaller spaces, especially if you dial back some other design elements.


Make a statement with sculptural lighting.

Table lamps with sculptural shapes and bold designs turn your lamps into pieces of art, providing interest even when the lamp is turned off. 

Use pairs of lamps to accentuate a beautiful sideboard or console table, or frame a larger piece of furniture such as a sofa or bed. 

Floor lamps are dutiful and elegant and can be placed next to an armchair or sofa to create a comfortable reading spot. Or light up that dark, forgotten corner of your hallway with a statement design to breathe new life into your home.

Opt for artful ceiling lights.

This theatrical lighting trend is perfect for those looking to express their personality through light. The designers of these creations have gone all out to incorporate artistic-sculpture-like pieces that are a major talking point during the day. And when switched on in the evening, the play of light that dances across the room is simply exquisite.

Go for bold statement pieces.

Choose bold designs featuring sculptural shapes, interesting texture or coloured glass to make as style statement, even when the light is switched off. 

Think of your lamp as an art piece or sculpture, like a design-led finishing touch. A light is a good way to throw surprise in a room, to merge modern with traditional.

Take a symmetrical approach.

Symmetry is an interior design trick used to create smart looking rooms and it is perfect for lighting trends. 

For a classic look, try taking a symmetrical approach to lighting. A great way to achieve this is to place two lamps either side of a mirror or a piece of art. The resulting aesthetic is one of well-distributed elegance.

Light up your space with colour.

Colour is back in a big way for lighting trends in 2022. For a colourful look, try cleverly mixing unexpected yet uplifting hues which embrace pairings and mismatched bases.

Increase your interest in bedroom lighting

With the trend for spaces to relax and unwind in becoming more prominent and important in interiors post-pandemic, ambience is key with lighting playing a crucial role in helping to set the mood and surrounding atmosphere.

To this end, lighting for bedrooms is taking a more important role, with eye-catching central pendants a focal point in themselves, even unlit, and shapely bedside lamps creating the perfect, low-lit atmosphere.

 Layer lighting in your Home-Office

With more of us than ever working from home, more thought is being given to how we light our home offices and work spaces and one trend to emerge for lighting in 2022 is a new-found love of traditional workmanship and styles. 

If you are working from your living space, use different types of lamps to create the right environment. In the day, opt for LED task lighting, which is bright and white and you could even supplement this with a lamp on darker days.

In the evening, turn these off and transition to diffused lighting either shaded lamps, or designs that have warm, frosted bulbs, as these will give a cosy glow to the room.

Lights made from renewable materials

Shining a light on sustainability

Lamps with energy-saving LEDs, made from renewable, recyclable and environmentally friendly raw materials are set to be the biggest lighting trend in 2022 as the push towards sustainable products grows. This means that 2022 is set to be a big year for manufacturers that produce in the country of sale and place great value on traditional craftsmanship and short transport routes.

Embrace vintage / pre-loved

As sustainability lies at the heart of lighting trends in 2022, people are increasingly shopping in vintage and charity shops for new items; this allows for uniqueness in lighting design and home design in general.

This meshes very well with the general trend of vintage styles in home design, with second-hand pieces becoming increasingly popular in areas like kitchen design. With climate change at the forefront of our news, it makes sense that lighting trends are evolving to work together with the environment.

This new trend has a sustainable application, but allows you to collect one-of-a-kind lighting designs you can be sure that no one will have the same!
