Argos lighting deals shopping advice

As there are so many amazing Argos lighting deals throughout the year, it's easy to get sucked into the discounts. And while we'd always suggest taking advantage of a good Argos lighting deal when you see one, it's also important to double down on buying things that you actually need

Yes, our advice for shopping Argos lighting deals is to focus on lighting options that will be a practical addition to your home. Of course, you can make sure that these lighting options suit your personal taste and the decor of your home, but you should also try to streamline this process. 

The last thing you want is a whole cupboard of spare trendy table lamps that you don't have any space for, after all. 

So, walk around your home and take stock of what you already have in terms of lighting. Look room by room and decide whether you want to keep what you have, whether you want to swap something old for something new, and whether you need to add a statement light to bring a room together. 

By doing this, you may realise that you're in desperate need of a desk lamp in your home office or a different ceiling light in your bedroom

Then, consider your design aesthetic. If you're looking to tailor your lighting options to current lighting trends, you may find that your rush to keep up with the status quo means that you have to pay full price for Argos lighting. But if you wait a few months, you may be able to get the same lighting option for a discounted price. 

Finally, comparing prices with other retailers is always a good idea. Argos always tries to be competitive with its prices and is often one of the cheapest places to find stylish and affordable lighting. However, you could find something similar (and cheaper) from another retailer during another discount event. For example, you may find that your dream floor lamp is the cheapest on Amazon Prime Day

When to shop

Argos often dances to the beat of its own drum when it comes to deals and sales. Sometimes, these discounts come out of the blue, and they suddenly decide to offer 20% off Argos lighting to get rid of old stock or to make way for new on-trend pieces. 

But outside of these random sales events, the retailer also tends to plan its promotions around key dates in the sales calendar. Below, you'll find even more information on these important dates, and how you can snap up these Argos lighting for the lowest price.

Bank holiday Argos lighting deals

Bank holiday deals are a chance for retailers to get more bang for their buck, and Argos follows in the footsteps of many other retailers by slashing its prices on these days. In fact, Argos has its very own webpage dedicated to its bank holiday offers

These discounts are especially prominent in July and August when the nights are longer, and consumer spending often increases. During this time, Argos tries to tempt shoppers with hard-to-resist discounts - despite the fact that most aren't thinking about their lighting options.

In fact, those who are looking for the best bank holiday Argos lighting deals should be able to snap up some serious bargains on these bank holidays. You'll find that many types of lighting go on sale during this time, including indoor and outdoor lighting.  

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Argos lighting deals

The term 'Black Friday' originated in the US to denote the first day following Thanksgiving when retailers would cut prices to draw holidaymakers to shop their store's sales. Driven by global brands, the price-slashing event soon crossed the pond, and now Black Friday – closely followed by Cyber Monday – has become one of the UK's biggest consumer extravaganzas, rivalling traditional Boxing Day sales. 

Often hailed as the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday always falls on the last Friday of November, so the next time it will officially roll around is Friday 29th November 2024.

That said, in recent years, the event has spread to encompass more than just one day, with retailers starting Black Friday discounting earlier and earlier so that a full Black Friday 'week' of discounts isn't uncommon. In fact, in 2022, we saw retailers running Black Friday promotions throughout the whole month of November, and the same happened in 2023. Black 'month' now seems to be a thing.

Whether or not you agree with the rampant consumerism Black Friday has now come to represent, there's no denying it can be a great time for Black Friday Argos lighting deals and Cyber Monday Argos lighting deals.

Last year, Black Friday Argos lighting deals were bigger than ever. The retailer slashed prices on some of its best-selling and highly-rated floor lamps, table lamps, ceiling lights, and more. And this year, we expect them to be even bigger (and brighter). 

We'll be keeping our eye out for all this year's top Black Friday Argos deals and Cyber Monday Argos lighting deals right here, but make sure to bookmark the Ideal Home Black Friday home deals page to get alerts for all the biggest Black Friday homeware sales as they launch.

Boxing Day Argos lighting deals

While some people hate the idea of shopping the day after Christmas, many shoppers also know that this is one of the best times to snap up a bargain. On this day, retailers kickstart the post-Christmas shopping rush and offer impressive discounts that are hard to ignore.

This retailer is famous for its Boxing Day deals, and there's no doubt about the fact that Boxing Day Argos lighting deals will be in full force as soon as Christmas Day is over. So, you could use this chance to replace the floor lamp your nephew knocked over as a result of his festive sugar rush. 

January Argos lighting deals

After the rush of the Boxing Day Argos lighting sales, you might assume that Argos puts its prices back down. But, most of the time, the January Argos lighting deals get even bigger and better. After all, the dark nights make these discounts hard to ignore. 

Typically, out-of-season outdoor lighting is heavily discounted during this time as the retailer tries to sell leftover stock. But you'll definitely be able to bag a bargain on year-round indoor lighting, too.

What is the best light to have in your room?

This is somewhat of a two-pronged answer, as you should focus on both the type of light and the lightbulb itself. 

In terms of lighting type, you have so many options to choose from and your choice should ultimately be the result of personal preference. 

However, most lighting experts would suggest having multiple lighting options in one room. In a living room for example, you could have a table lamp on a side unit, you could have a floor lamp in the corner, and you could have wall lights either side of the television. This gives you options, and allows you to create different atmospheres depending on your mood.

In terms of lightbulb type, warm lighting is generally considered to be the best option - except in a bathroom and kitchen, when cool white lights could suit you better. But if you're not sure what type of light bulb you want, opting for a dimmable bulb could be a great compromise. 

Does Argos sell lights?

Yes! As the today's best Argos lighting deals prove, Argos sells a wide variety of lights.  The retailer offers everything from wall lights to ceiling lights and lamps such as floor lights and table lamps. Not only that, but they also sell smart lighting for those who want to add some more tech to their home.
