Light fitting installation in London
From a single fitting to a large chandelier or spotlights, we have expertise in safely, quickly and effectively installing light fittings in both residential and commercial properties.
While in some cases it can be simple to change a light fitting yourself, we can take the stress away, and ensure that your light fitting is installed both safely and efficiently.
Modern light fittings come in a wide range of types, and you may be looking to install things such as downlighters, specialist LED lighting or even an antique fitting, and in many cases, this will require an electrician to ensure that this is done properly.
At SW Electricians, our experts will come to your home and get your lights up and running in no time, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your new lights.
Interior lighting repair
It’s a fact of life that sometimes, we will experience lighting failures within our homes. Once you have checked the usual suspects including the bulb and your consumer unit, it may be time to call our expert electricians.
While in most cases, if just one area of your home is affected, you may choose to wait until working hours to get someone to look at the problem in some circumstances, it may be necessary to call out an emergency electrician near you, in order to make your home safe, for example if you have a total loss of lighting which may be dangerous to children or vulnerable people in your home, or if the building is used for commercial purposes.
The causes of lighting problems can be numerous. From issues with fittings themselves to problems in the circuit which conducts electricity around your home.
All of our electricians are fully trained and qualified, and our aim is always to both identify the problem, and implement a solution as quickly as we possibly can, both to get you back to normal as soon as possible and to ensure that costs are kept as low as they can be.
Home LED lighting installation in London
Installing LED lighting solutions into your home can help you to make huge savings on your energy bills, and while also reducing the need to constantly change bulbs as some LED bulbs can last up to 50,000 hours which is equal to constantly having your lights on for around 10 years!
LED light strips can be added to your home to add ambience in a wide range of areas such as under cupboards or open shelving units, in kitchens as downlights, or even outside in your garden or on your balcony.
Get in touch with SW Electricians today to find out how we can help you to change the look of your home, and save money with LED lighting installations
Moving Light fittings in London
If you are undertaking renovation work to your home, it may be necessary for you to move your light fittings in order to fit in with your new layout. Moving lights around your home will usually involve some rewiring, as new cables are needed in order to run electricity to your new fitting.

Adding wall lamps to your London home
Wall lamps can be a great way to add ambient lighting to any room, and can also help to free up space that would otherwise be taken up by traditional lamps.
For example, in your bedroom, adding a wall mounted bedside lamp gives you space on your bedside table without the need to rest a freestanding night lamp there – meaning you can instead use the space for other things.
Indeed wall lamps are a popular addition around the home and can be used to offer softer lighting than the main fitting, or additional task lighting in certain areas.
Changing light switches
At SW electricians, we offer a wide range of services to help you to change light switches or sockets in your London home.
While in many cases it may be possible to change a light switch yourself, with increasingly complicated switch types, you may need some help, and here at SW Electricians, we offer a reliable and affordable service to help you to change or install new switches.
Changing a light fitting with a ceiling rose.
If you live in a traditional period or Victorian property, you may have ornate features such as ceiling roses or cornicing. SW Electricians are London specialists and, as such, we have worked on a wide range of older properties.
Therefore we take extra care when installing new light fittings to maintain the integrity of the period features within your home.
Adding dimmer switches to your home
Dimmer switches add the ability to control the level of lighting in your room, enabling you to quickly switch between low, ambient lighting or brighter lights when you need them.
Dimmed lighting also means that you can save energy as a dimmed switch uses less electricity than one running at full power, which can also help your bulbs to last longer.
There are now a wide range of dimmer switches available on the market, and it’s worth noting that, for LED lighting, you will need to also ensure that you purchase the correct type of bulbs too – as not all LED lamps are dimmable, and can be unreliable.
SW Electricians are experts in fitting dimmer switches for both LED and standard setups and can talk you through the benefits and pitfalls of either.
Kitchen Lighting Installation
For many of us, the kitchen is the heart of the home, and a place that all of the family can enjoy, whether for cooking, eating, relaxing, doing work, reading the papers, or just spending some quality time together.
On this basis, homeowners are becoming increasingly aware of how installing a wide range of lighting in our kitchens can completely transform how the space is used.
For example, kitchens can offer zones by creating different spaces by using different types of lighting such as task lighting for cooking or washing up, mood lighting such as dimmable lamps to allow you to enjoy a softer light to relax or enjoy a glass of wine, and accent lighting such as track lighting or recessed downlighters to highlight kitchen features.
At SW Electricians, we have helped a whole host of customers looking to transform their kitchen into a cosy yet functional hub of the home using clever lighting installations. From adding LED lighting at the bottom of kitchen units to a complete kitchen rewire, we can help you to attain your dream kitchen atmosphere with clever lighting.
Spotlight installation in your London home
Spotlights are becoming increasingly popular in houses and flats in London, with good reason.
Having spotlights in your home can offer excellent lighting coverage, particularly in areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.
Doing things such as zoning spotlights to particular switches, which allows you to control multiple areas of spotlights with different switches, or adding dimmer switch makes spotlighting a particularly flexible way to light rooms within your home.
Can I Add Spotlights in a Flat or Apartment?
When an electrician installs spotlights to your home, they will usually need to be able to access the room above where the spotlights are to be installed, so either upper floor rooms, or possibly the loft. If you live in a flat and do not have access to the floor above, more work may need to be carried out as extra holes to run cables may be required.
At SW Electricians, we are London specialists, and, as such have a wide range of experience in working on electrical installations in flats and apartments, so we can usually offer a solution that is both efficient and cost-effective.
If you are looking to install spotlights in your house or flat, get in touch with us for a bespoke quote.
