20 Sep LED lightning for your home by Trends
In the last couple years incadescent bulbs have been superseded by LED lightning. Before talking about the benefits of LED lightning and how to use it at home, we have to let you know what this kind of lightning is all about.
LED (lightning emitting diode) is a semiconductor diode capable of emitting visible light when an electric current passes through it. Among its benefits we find: a highly accurate reproduction of color, the lack of ultraviolet light emission and an efficiency gain of up to 80% over incandescent bulbs.
With these advantages in mind, we would love to give you some advice on how to implement LED lightning at home, as it is not only is eco-friendly, but also looks nice.
For starters, it’s important to know that LED lightning reduces eyestrain, which is why LED lightning is highly recommended at work places, such as kitchens, bedrooms and home offices. LED bulbs are, as mentioned, environmentally-friendly, recyclable and do not contain mercury.
The so-called ‘cold lightning’ created by LED bulbs can be very useful at home. It gives spaces a homogenous lightning and is also perfect to create some highlighted working areas. The homogenous lightning is easily created with downlights. These kind of bulbs are very effective on false ceilings and create an elaborated effect of spaciousness. To decide the lightning on highlighted working areas it is important to calculate priority and needs, as the light will have a different impact on each. For the highlighted zones we recommend white bulbs with a clear focus on work space.
In dining rooms or living rooms we recommend an open and multidirectional lightning strategy. There’s LED lamps with an optical-aperture of 360 degrees, which produces a surrounding type of lightning that leads to cozyness and comfort.
If it comes down to the kitchen, LED lightning is a must: it not only a 15-times longer lifespan than traditional bulbs, but also has an optimal performance when turned on for long periods of time. LED bulbs in the kitchen produce direct and intense lightning without emitting heat and can be easily integrated in furniture to highlight work spaces.
For outdoor lightning, LED continues to be a great choice, as it is the easiest way to highlight some specific areas, avoid accidents and add a sophisticated look to your garden. You can use LED bulbs on your lanterns, you can put LED beacons on the ground to highlight a path, among many other possibilities a good lightning project has to offer.
If you would like to know more about LED lightning and how to use it properly at home, we will be happy to welcome you at Trends Studio to create a custom made project for your home.
