Why LEDs are Perfect for Decorative Lighting Applications
Although chandeliers have been a staple when it comes to elegant lighting and formal interior design, bright and coloured LED light bulbs are slowly gaining traction as a popular alternative for decorative lighting. In fact, several interior designers are making the switch to these bulbs to create unique lighting effects for special spaces. LEDs are perfect for this application, because unlike a few years ago, they now come in a wide range of colours and sizes, with several renovated homes showcasing these light bulbs in bold or understated fixtures.
Why the Transition? Unlike incandescent bulbs and halogen lamps that have a fleeting lifespan of 1,500 to 3,000 hours, LED light bulbs can last well beyond 15,000 hours to 20,000 hours. They’re also energy efficient, using up to 90 percent less electricity used by normal light bulbs. It’s no surprise that homeowners and designers are using them for backlighting furniture, appliances, and art pieces like paintings and sculptures. On the more practical side, LEDs are also used for illuminating areas beneath kitchen cupboards, bench areas, stairs, and bathroom mirrors.
Cool colours around your home If you like your outdoor spaces, garden, or backyard to have a splash of colour, you can get waterproof and weatherproof LED light fixtures, which are designed specifically for outdoor applications. These lights offer a generous amount of lighting, allow you to accent features outside your home while also providing enough light for safety. LEDS are typically available in two colour temperatures: Cool or bluish light, and Warm, which leans towards a yellow tone. Other solid colors like red and green are also available, used for specialty lighting, such as in outdoor spaces, home theaters, and more.
