Hi,so our quote has just a single light included in the room in our loft. Do most people go for downlights instead?Or is one light in the middle good enough?
The room will be our bedroom (standard loft with dorma).

We have a single light. Recessed don't feel right in a bedroom imo. We also have bedside lamps and the room feels like it has plenty of light. The bedroom is 5m x 3.5m so a decent double.

Not a loft conversion but a three story house with a bedroom in the roof. We have a single light in the centre. But we have one with a fan incorporated into it. Our loft can get very hot in the summer but the fan makes it okay.

Spotlights, split into three "sections" and beside lamps in ours x

There's about 9 spotlights including an angled one above my dressing table

We have central lights in ours, but flush ones as the ceiling height isn't that high and DH and I are over 6ft.

If I was doing the loft myself I would have had dimmable recessed spots, angled to bounce light off the walls, plus lamps.

We have 7 recessed LED spotlights - gives good light coverage especially in winter.

We have 3 ceiling lights. They're very flush due to the low ceiling - we also have lots of lamps as it's a big room with sleeping, reading and sitting areas (sort of).

If the ceiling is reasonable height then pendants but if it's quite low then recessed spots but with the intention of always using lamps.
