For contemporary interior design, LED lighting transforms rooms in both residential and commercial spaces. The increasing popularity of interior LED lighting is down its benefits and versatility. Lighting Solutions Ltd supplies a range of LED lighting options to enhance interior design projects.
What are some of the benefits of interior LED lighting?
LED lighting is energy-efficient
Interior LED lighting reduces a household’s carbon dioxide emissions by up to 40kg a year, the equivalent of driving a car for approximately 140 miles. Because LED light bulbs are long-lasting, far less waste is sent to landfill, resulting in a better carbon footprint.
Interior LED lighting is cost-effective
One of the most popular benefits of interior LED lighting is cost. It is far cheaper to run than halogen or incandescent lighting. Easily so, energy-efficient lighting helps lower electricity bills. By lasting longer than traditional bulbs, LED lights also provide an additional long-term saving.
Interior LED lighting is brighter so spreads further than traditional lighting, thereby distributing illumination more effectively. LEDs permit different designs to exist like linear LED fittings with a wide spread of light, especially for indirect lighting. It is also easy to control interior LED lighting to achieve the desired ambiance of a room.
Customisable interior LED lighting
Examples of Interior LED lighting options are bulbs, strip lights and neon lights. They can be supplied in a vast array of colours to match design schemes.
What to Look for When Buying LED Light Strips
It’s important to know what to look for when buying LED strips.
Depending on the intended use, a particular type of LED strip might be needed over another. Some are designed for outdoor use as they have a protective waterproof covering which is obviously unnecessary for interior design. Some LED strips have an adhesive backing while others run straight from an outlet.
The higher the number of LEDs per strip, the brighter the lighting will be. Too few bulbs per strip might create a spot-like effect. The balance needs to be appropriate for the project.
Obvious things to look for when buying LED light strips are brightness, strip colours, colour temperature and colour rendering index. For example cool white, neutral.
