In any home, getting the lighting right is essential. A room that is poorly lit can feel dark and dingy, making the overall ambience feel quite oppressive. Badly lit rooms never look chic. So, next time you redecorate, it is worth incorporating some modern LED lighting into your design. Doing so makes it far easier to create the clean, crisp, and chic you want.
These days, it is really easy to switch to LED bulbs and save yourself a lot of money by doing so. Almost regardless of the type of light fixtures you already own it is now possible to find LED bulbs that will fit and not clash with the styling.
LEDs cost less to run
Once fitted these bulbs last far longer than the old incandescent bulbs did. Typically, 25 times longer, and they last 10 times longer than CFLs. A fact that means you will save a lot of money by switching to using LEDs. Plus, they use 75% less power than other types of bulbs do. With the price of electricity continuing to increase, this is also an important consideration.
LED lighting is extremely versatile
Because these bulbs are digital you can control the lights in your home using an app on your phone. If you install dimmable bulbs you can turn each one up or down while sitting on your sofa to change the ambience of the room better fit your mood.
LED bulbs are available in a range of colours
It is also possible to buy LED bulbs that are capable of emitting a range of different colours. This opens up all sorts of possibilities from a design point of view.
For example, you could install these lights along the top edge of a wall and use them to wash the wall in several different colours. This is a wonderful way to create a range of looks without having to get the paint roller out.

LEDs enable you to make better use of your space
Unlike incandescent or CFL bulbs LEDs do not wear out or draw down a lot of power when they are only turned on for short periods of time. This means they are great for installing inside areas like walk-in wardrobes. Using the right type of bulb can help to make your home more user-friendly. Installing sensor-controlled LED bulbs is a way to get the light to turn on automatically when the door is opened.
LED tap lights are another way you to bring light to every dark nook and cranny, in your home. They run on batteries, so can be installed anywhere, including under the stairs or in a cupboard. This makes it possible for you to utilise all of your storage space to keep your home clutter free and chic.
