About them light fittings...

Thou shalt get door knobs, taps, shower heads, toilet flush handles...

But thou shalt not get light fittings.... Is that how it is in the rest of Europe/US/UK too?

So what happens if you remove all your fittings to a new house, and realise there are more sockets than you have fittings, or more fittings than sockets? Are you always able to run back to the store from 3 years ago and say "I'll take two more of those, please"?

Do veteran expats now own a pile of mismatched fittings?

Sorry, it's just that this is a totally alien concept to me.
