    Fair enough, I'd like something that looks nice and can also have the bulb replaced fairly easily if it were to go.

    That's why fittings with separate bubs are better than those with bulbs embedded into the fitting. Plus you have the flexibility of what type of bulb you want to use (i.e. incandescent, halogen, CFL or LED).

    We saw some LED spotlights in Lidl's once - but they were embedded, so the whole fitting would need to replace if a bulb blew.

    I know, which is what I have atm, but it's very basic. :s

    Fair enough, I'll see if I can find a photo of the one I liked that was impractical.

    You've probably just got a basic pendant light, am I correct?

    Best thing is to find a nice fitting that you like, which also allows the bulb to be replaced.

    This is one I liked, but is impractical as you can't change the lights

    I have something more like this at the moment though

    See above and that's the plan, something nice, where the bulb can be replaced.

    I thought the bottom one is what you would have at the moment.

    I do like that top one, shame the lights can't be changed. What you need is something like the top one that allows the bulbs to be replaced

    Yeah, the top one is nice and IKEA do others that are similar and also nice, but have the same issue. They're also a bit pricey. I'll have to find one, either one we have, but hasn't been used or buy one at some point.

    Best thing to do is look at other providers then if IKEAs all have non replaceable bulbs....

    Some of them do, just there are some really nice ones that don't.
