How to Light Up Your Home with LED Ceiling Lights

By Valentine De Roover Subscribe to RSS | March 28th 2012 | Views:

Lighting plays a significant role in a building’s design, offering illumination for easy visibility and adding décor to interiors. Unlike the past, modern lighting offers us many options when it comes to fixtures and the type of light used. Incandescent lighting had for long been the only option available to us. While it served its purpose, there was no denying that it consumed considerable amounts of electricity, particularly in homes or offices that left them on for long hours at a time. Now, LEDs provide us with more options as they’re energy saving, durable and offer us the same degree of illumination.

LED ceiling lights are fast becoming the light of choice for many commercial establishments. While the bulbs themselves are a little expensive, the returns are high in the long run. Since they’re far more durable than incandescent lighting, LED ceiling lights have become the preferred option.

If you live in a home that’s positioned such that natural light doesn’t filter though properly, there are a few things you can do to ensure that your house is well lit.

Add class to your interior

Pendant lights can really add class to an indoor interior. Pendant lights or hanging lights are the type of lamps that hang from the ceiling on a wire or a bar. Mostly the length at which they hang can be adjusted to your wishes. Nowadays people often choose to hang indoor pendant lights on a lower height because this gives a more modern impression. The average ideal pendant height is around eye height, approximately at 170 centimeters. Pendants are suited to be placed in central positions of a room and radiate the light all around. This can easily provide the room with basic illumination. Usually indoor pendant lights are placed above a table to deliver proper lighting while dining.

Pendant lights are a pretty addition to any room. Aside from providing diffused lighting, many are shaped to look like decorative items. So, not only do you get your illumination, you get a product that doubles up as a decoration.

Use LEDs for ceiling lights. Contrary to what many think, not all LEDs disperse white light. If you can’t find one that gives off a yellow glow, then choose ceiling lights whose shades are colored to add substance to the white light.

Use lamps in strategic places. Unlike LED ceiling lights, they tend to lend a softer glow to create a warm and intimate atmosphere.

Use mirrors to create the illusion of a well lit room. They’ll reflect the light from lamps at no additional cost.

Paint your room in light colors. Cream, light blue and off-white reflect light better and enhance illumination.

Don’t simply add lamps and lights randomly. Figure out which space you want lit and which areas you want muted. This will help you get the most out of your lighting choices.
