Are you and your guests fed up of dark mornings and gloomy nights? I feel your pain, so it’s time for me to share my 3 top lighting tips for brightening those darker rooms you may have in your Hotel or B&B.

are essential for Hotels/B&Bs, as often you have fine art, statues or antiques, as part of your furnishings.
