John Lewis is one of the most popular department stores in the UK. They have plenty of goods for sale, and you can buy from their website just as easily as you can from one of their stores.
And for those of you who are looking for lighting to brighten up your home, you’ll be delighted at the intriguing range that they offer.
Where can I find the website?
You can access the John Lewis website at www.johnlewis.com. As soon as you arrive on the home page it is clear that this is a site which believes in high standards, and that fact is strengthened as you go through the various pages.
How do I find the ceiling light section of the site?
All you need to do to take a look at the lighting is to hover your mouse over the electrical appliances section on the menu bar. Once you do this you will see a menu appear which is relevant to that section. Simply select lighting from this menu and you will reach the right page.
For future reference, the destination URL for this part of the site is http://www.johnlewis.com/Electrical+Appliances/Lighting/Category.aspx.
What types and brands of lighting do they offer?
No matter what kind of light you might be looking for, you will find just what you need at John Lewis.
They have separate sections for all types of lighting, including ceiling lights and lighting accessories, so you will easily be able to locate the appropriate items. Each section is then broken down into several other sections.
So for example, if you select ceiling lighting as the place you want to go to, you can then narrow down your search to brass or crystal effect lights, or perhaps even chandeliers. Some of the lights are by John Lewis themselves, while others feature well known names such as Philips.
There is a lot of information provided for each specific light when you visit the appropriate page; if John Lewis sells the right light bulbs you can order these from the same page too. If not, they will tell you underneath the photo of the light fitting what you need to buy, and how many of them you will need.
Are there any buying guides or useful sections of information about lighting?
On the main lighting page of the website, there are three guides that will help you discover more about lighting. For example there is a general guide that goes into more detail about light bulbs, and also gives you advice about the kind of lights you should have in each area of your home.
There is also a very useful and in depth section on dimmer switches and regular switches, and if you want to find out how to get rid of your low energy bulbs when they finally don’t work any more, John Lewis will tell you that too.
In short, it is worth reading through these pages before you make any purchases, as they might help you to make that final choice.
Is there anything else I should know?
As time goes by there are more and more energy efficient lights that can be purchased. These are easy to find on the John Lewis website because there is a special section devoted to them. You will also find energy saving light bulbs in this particular part of the site.
And if you are stuck on making a decision about what light to use where, take a look at the nine page PDF brochure that is included on the site. This gives you both words and pictures to illustrate the points being made, and you will find it much easier to figure out how to finish off your home in just the right way by using the right lighting to do so.
Before you place your order, make sure you read through all the relevant information included in the customer service section at the foot of the page. This includes delivery information and what to do if you want to return something.
The John Lewis website is very well laid out and you don’t have to worry about paying extra for delivery either. At the time of writing, the basic delivery service (which should be fine for most needs) was free of charge, and this didn’t look to be a temporary feature either.
In short, John Lewis is a great place to go if you want to light up your home.
