Bring Your Home to Life with Intelligent LED Lighting

by Roger on Nov 5, 2013

LED technology has become a hot property in the consumer lighting market and anyone can jump on the bandwagon to see what the fuss is all about. Here is a look at how you can decorate your home with LED lighting, inside and out. From strip lights to flood lights, the options are endless.

House Proud

Giving your home a makeover is a great way to reinvigorate your love of the place and shed new light on rooms and spaces that might not have been getting much love recently.

The products available in the market will let you transform drab, dreary spaces into light, bright and visually interesting areas that you will want to spend time in and show off to visitors.

To get you started, here is a look at just some of the items from ledstriplightsco.co.uk which can be harnessed to help decorate your home attractively and affordably.

Interior Ingenuity

It is perfectly possible to replace your existing incandescent and fluorescent bulbs with LED alternatives, simply adding this newer, more efficient form of illumination to the existing fixtures. However, for those who have a little more ambition you can go all out with your LED overhaul.

For example, LED strip lights are particularly suitable for use in rooms like the kitchen where you have work surfaces, cupboards and lots of obstructions. They can be cut to size, flexed around corners and integrated discretely so that they do not cause any obstruction or distraction.

LED strip lights also come in multiple colours, with some models allowing you to change between hues on the fly, creating constantly shifting showcases that will amaze your friends and family and also set the atmosphere for a party when required, while leaving the room in a much more normal state for most of the time.

Outdoor Ideas

LED lighting is also suitable for use outside of your home, both for subtle illumination of the garden path or for the full floodlight effect which is practical for the purposes of home security.

LED lighting is more durable and tolerant of extreme conditions than older alternative technologies, which means that it can withstand the wear and tear of outdoor use for many years in a row without leaving you in the dark.

The ruggedness of LED technology helps to boost the lifespan of strips and bulbs wherever they are mounted, inside or out. This means that even if the upfront investment required is a little higher than for traditional solutions, you will be making savings further down the line by dint of not having to buy replacements for a long time.

Energy Matters

Whatever the cost of your decorative or practical lighting solution; perhaps the best reason to choose LEDs is that they offer significantly lower energy consumption than almost any other option available to you.

LEDs can use less than half as much electricity as traditional bulbs, with less being wasted as heat, which also has safety benefits.

You will continue to make savings for as long as you use LED lighting and this will quickly justify the amount spent upfront on the hardware itself.

LED lighting is becoming more affordable by the day as adoption increases and consumers prepare for the future. So you might want to bring a new lease of life to your home with LED strip lights and flood lights as doing so now will mean that you are able to start making savings much sooner than you might think.
