Socket to the energy bill: 5-bed home with stupid number of power outlets leaves us asking... why?

My new house

No, not quite so many power points. But lots and lots of lights: recessed ceiling lights and spotlights all over the place.

I never realised quite how useless they are. In my previous place I had a single old-fashioned ceiling light in each of the main rooms, and they did a better job than 8 or 12 recessed lights here. Worst is the kitchen, where despite nine recessed lights and four spots I struggle to find a spot with sufficient light for regular cooking tasks.
