LOOKING for a quick, easy way to give a room some love?
Invest in a new lampshade.
Because, the thing with cheap lights is that often the cord or fitting gives their real price away and ruins the whole look.
Yes, this can be fixed with a little DIY – a new cord or ceiling rose – but cheap lights are often more likely to break a lot sooner than the more expensive designs.
So if you have a decent fitting already – think about just updating the shade, which will not only save you money but can help transform a room in, quite literally, seconds.
We’ve picked 7 of our favourite shades for pendant lights – all for under £50 – and even better, three come in under a tenner.
