Agree with you both. Same goes for sockets! You don’t have to use them but if they aren’t there you can guarantee you’ll wish you’d had more!!

We have just finished a two storey renovation of our house and have had lamp sockets installed which can be controlled by the wall switches in the same way as the down lights. They give a lovely cosy light and as it’s a fairly big open space we don’t have to go and switch on idividual lamps at the sockets in the different zones but can control them at the wall.
