These Laura Ashley lighting ideas are just what you need to transform the look and feel of your home this new year. A super easy way to update your space, lighting has the capacity to give a tired looking space a whole new lease of life.
And with most of us spending more time at home during January – we refuse to believe that we're the only ones who overdid it over Christmas – what better time to focus on enhancing the ambience of your home. Plus, Laura Ashley lighting currently has up to 50 per cent off, as part of their January sale. So, you can be sure that you're getting yourself a bit of a bargain, too. And a super stylish one at that.

1. Use wall lights to free up space in a small bedroom
Wall lights are a great option for bedrooms where space is at a premium, as they'll allow you to do away with bedside tables altogether. And when they're as stylish as these Ockley Clear Wall Lights (opens in new tab) from Laura Ashley, why would you not?
2. Style a kitchen island with pendant lighting
Looking for kitchen island lighting ideas? You really can't go wrong with super stylish and sophisticated pendant lights. These Isaac Chrome and Glass Pendants (opens in new tab) not only create a striking focal point that floods the space with warm light, but also have the capacity to make this space feel more intimate, which is perfect if (like us) you consider the kitchen the hub of your home. Plus, they're now just £44.10, down from £70.
3. Or work your pendants into a small kitchen
We get it, not everyone has the luxury of a spacious kitchen with a giant kitchen island, which is why we wanted to share these pendant lightings styled in a slightly different way.
Forming part of a smaller, U-shaped kitchen, the Isaac Chrome and Glass Pendants (opens in new tab) flood this space with light, their classic design complementing a timeless, grey kitchen.
4. Opt for a floor lamp for a simple and effective look
If you're a renter whose landlord would breakdown at the prospect of you installing a wall light or pendant light, remember that something as simple as a floor or table lamp can be equally effective in transforming the ambience of your space.
We love the Selby Nickel Floor Lamp (opens in new tab), with its super stylish glass detailing. Now just £122.85, down from £195 at Laura Ashley.
5. Consider a traditional light above your dining table
Styling an open plan kitchen diner? It's worth thinking about using lighting to zone your space.
We love the use of this Sorrento Champagne and Blush 3 Arm Chandelier (opens in new tab) to create more of traditional feel. And retailing at just £94.50, down from £170, it's a lot more affordable than similar buys we've seen on the market.
6. Or channel your inner 1920s New Yorker with a bit of Art Deco
Art Deco interiors seem to be having a bit of a resurgence. Or was it just that they never really went out of fashion?
Either way, we're loving this Arnos Ripple Nickel 3-Light Semi-Flush Ceiling Light (opens in new tab) from Laura Ashley. Complete the look with a bar cart, plenty of Champagne and the Mr (or Mrs) Gatsby in your life. Now just £72, down from £200 at Laura Ashley.
7. Upgrade your pendant lighting in a larger space
If you're lighting a larger space, you can certainly get away with opting for larger pendants. We love the hurricane style of these Rye Clear Glass Pendants (opens in new tab). Particularly when set against this super stylish dark and atmospheric kitchen. Now just £53.55, down from £85 at Laura Ashley.
