Lighting changes a room’s mood, perceived size and function – it’s not just about buying a lamp and plonking it down in the corner. Before you even start wondering where to buy lamps in Singapore, think about what you need. Do you need upward or downward lighting? Will the size of the lamp exude the right amount of light to define the space? Do you need soft or bright lightbulbs to enhance the surrounding colours? And what kind of light will help you define the functionality of a space? We chat with representatives of different stores offering lamps and lights in Singapore, to find out what to expect – and how to make your lamp shopping experience a successful one!
