Anyone considering selling their home can increase their chances with impressive lighting.

That is according to Asco Lights, which says that good lighting can have a big impact on a buyer's opinion of a property.

The firm says that certain styles of lighting can attract buyers, while others actually put people off by having a negative impact on the overall appearance of a house.

"LEDs are very popular, and the Swarovski Crystal range is popular because it is very "bling"," said Ajay Vasdev, director of Asco Lights.

"People use impressive lighting to sell apartments and it is always used in showhomes…they [lights] can help people to either rent or sell [their property].

"If you enter a property and the lights look very good it suddenly adds to the overall appearance of that property. If they are very drab it down-values it. It's the first thing you see…that chandelier or wall-stand really gives you a first impression," he added.

Energy efficient lighting is also popular among buyers, according to Mr Vasdev.
