Moving homes in Switzerland is exciting, especially if you are around the Geneva lake area, with many great places to live like Geneva, Nyon, Morges, Rolle, Lausanne, Vevey and Montreux are some of the cities with large Expat populations.
On arriving to a new home you will often find that there are no ceiling lights installed or they have the most basic types of bare lights hanging from the ceiling. You (or your handyman) will probably want to change them to reflect the atmosphere and ambiance of your style.
Having done a little research, the following are the popular places to buy lights for your home in the Swiss Romande area:
- Lumière et Objets SA
- Goumaz Jean-Pierre
- Georges Maye SA
- Ledixa Sàrl
- CONFORAMA SA
This is just a partial list of the many great shops from which to choose from and to suit everyone’s budget. Local.ch is the most helpful directory to find a lighting store near you.
A Mr Fix It handyman can recommend what type of lights to install, where to buy, collect the lights, lamps, the lamp bulbs and ensure they are installed correctly.
If you are energy conscious, Mr Fix It can recommend LED light bulbs which are:
- Cool – LED lights & lamps do not have heat build up
- Cost Efficient – They use less electricity and last longer
- Long Lasting – Upto 10 times longer than fluorescent lamps
- Environmentally Friendly – There is no use of mercury in LED lights
- Robust – They are solid and as they do not have a lamp filament, they don’t damage as easily
If you are unsure how best to replace, install, change new ceiling or wall mounted lights, change the plugs over to the Swiss standard, give Mr Fix It handyman a call and get your lighting & lamp ‘to do list’ done today.
