    I have the following:-

    3 x 50 Watt MR16 12V non directional spotlights in the Lounge
    1 x Cluster of 3 spotlights in Bathroom
    1 x line of 4 MR16 spotlights in the Kitchen

    I want to replace all with low energy.

    Lounge - I do not want to mess around filling holes. Want to remove existing by either using new bulbs or replacing units. What is similar and will give same quality of light?

    Bathroom - Quite small so within metre of shower, what low energy options can be used in a bathroom?

    Kitchen - Am going to remodel soon and heard the flourescent tubes are good for not casting shadows. Would you recommend just flourescent tubes or a mixture of that and something else?

    Oh - I hate B&Q etc, everything from there seems to be a bunch of #@@#. I normally buy from TLC-Direct as it lasts longer, looks better and tends to cost less.

    Any help / opinions appreciated...
