HomeKit Tips for a New Extension in the UK

HomeKit Tips for a New Extension in the UK

Hi all. I saved and saved and I just started working on a new extension. The goal is for the case to be built and finished and then I bring my own electrician etc. to make bits before exiting. I’m quite invested in HomeKit from the beginning, I currently have a few HomePods (first generation) in the house and I bought Philips shade lights since they first came out and changed the hub into one HomeKit once it came out . Currently, I’m thinking about lighting, there will be a mixture of pendants above the kitchen island and also descending spots, the space is quite large, the extension is 10×3 and the current space is quite large. Because of the price of the shade, I was wondering what recommendations you have for lighting, I know the shade was great and ideally I would like colored bulbs for future times with kids etc but 50 GBP a bulb is a lot …. No I want to go cheap, but I want quality, nanoleaf would be better? Also light switches. What did you find best? Finally, there is something you found really important when building a new project to help me in the future, something you would have liked to have made HomeKit wise. Thanks a lot.
