Things to consider:

Wattage and Lumens are both units of measurement
Wattage: The amount of energy required to produce light.
Lumen: How much light is produced. The higher the lumen rating, the more light you can expect.

Always consider the recommended wattage provided with your light fitting when buying light bulbs. Heat is created when the two are connected and if a bulb has a wattage that is too high for the fitting, this can cause overheating making the fitting unsafe.


Always isolate the lighting circuit at the fuse box before installing a mains-powered fitting. Take note of all of the cable connections before removing the old unit.

We recommend that you get a qualified electrician to install all light fittings in line with current UK Regulations.

Enjoy your home in a whole new light with the exciting new range available at TK Maxx.
