How to install D.I.Y. batten fix lights
The best thing about D.I.Y. lights is there’s no wiring involved, so no electrician is required. You can quickly and easily install them over any existing batten fixture.
“D.I.Y. lights are an easy, no-fuss lighting solution that can add style and colour to a room,” explains Amy. “They’re great for renters—you just take them with you when you move.” D.I.Y. lights also make decor updates easy and cost-effective. Whether you’re updating for the season, or refreshing old fittings, there’s a wide range to match any home.
D.I.Y. lights can go anywhere
Almost every room in the house will benefit from D.I.Y. lights, especially living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms. As children grow up, you can easily update their bedroom to suit their age or replace damaged light fittings. Busy rooms like the kitchen can require new lights more often than other rooms, which is a nice excuse to update the look too. In fact, whenever you make a change in a room—new furniture, TV or paint—you can easily complete the room with a D.I.Y. light.
D.I.Y. light shades for smaller spaces
Amy notes there’s a variety of sizes to suit your space. “Smaller shades like the Biba can give a subtle uplift to a room, while larger decorative pieces like the Rufus and Ruben will really stand out.”
There are also several models that are available in both small and large sizes, including the best-selling Murano and the natural woven rattan of the Kelly.
D.I.Y. batten fix pendant lights
Amy suggests another option is to create a pendant light. “The Rufus can be quickly converted to a pendant with the use of a Huxta D.I.Y. pendant kit—no wires to connect and no tools required.”
Globes and energy efficiency
The Mercator D.I.Y. lighting range is LED globe compatible which helps save energy. Decorative globes can also be used and look fantastic in the small Biba, medium sized Java, Ivan, Viva and Donna, and the large decorative pieces like the Allyce.
