Tips on Planning Your Home Interior with LED Lights

Posted on

LED (Light Emitting Diode) fixtures are unmatched by any other lighting solution when it comes to efficiency. LED lighting technology also has the fastest pace of technological advancement and LEDs are expected to keep significantly improving in price and efficiency for the next several years. It is this remarkable efficiency that makes LEDs ideal not just for traditional lighting but also for interior decorating.

You can use LED lights to decorate your living room, kitchen, bedroom, dining and other parts of your home. Keep in mind, however, that different rooms have different lighting requirements based on the activities and tasks usually performed in the said rooms. You need to be knowledgeable of the proper placement, layout, and spacing of lighting fixtures. Below are a few tips that can help you out.

Living Room

This is typically the most used part of the house. It is often where the most members of the family are gathered. Dimmable LED lights should be used to provide ambient lighting for the room. Adjusting the dimness of a light helps eliminate glare and strong shadows to make bonding time amongst the family, such as watching TV together, more pleasant.

Kitchen

The right combination of ambient and task lighting is essential when it comes to the kitchen. There needs to be ample general lighting to allow you to maneuverer around easily and make a proper evaluation of the room’s cleanliness. There should also be task lights on work areas such as the sink and the table. Having under-cabinet lights is also recommended.

Dining Room

We advise a combination of ambient lighting for the whole room and task lighting for the table. Hanging lights or chandeliers are the traditional choice for table lighting. You can also choose recessed downlight lighting to make the dining room look more spacious and functional. Just make sure to get the correct amount of elevation for whichever light you choose. And if you choose LED recessed lighting, have sparedownlight housing C Clips ready.

Bedroom

Among all the primary rooms in a house, the bedroom needs heavy lighting the least. Just have a source of task lighting such as a desk lamp for when the room owner wants to do some reading, studying, or work before going to bed.

Bathroom

The bathroom requires more lights than most other areas in a house. You also need to make intelligent use of mirrors to keep light properly refracted so you see everything clearly.
