What is indoor lighting?

Indoor lighting is exactly as it says it is, any lighting that is used to brighten an interior space. There are four types of indoor lighting: ambient lighting, task lighting, accent lighting and decorative lighting.

Why choose indoor LED lights?

LED lighting is the most popular choice on the market, not only for indoor lighting but a whole range of applications due to its cost-saving and high-quality features. While we could spend endless hours praising this solution, we have put together the most significant benefits that come with choosing indoor LED lights for your bedroom, living room, bathroom and any other place that may need some illumination.

Energy saving

If you think about all the energy used by regular fluorescent, incandescent or indoor halogen lights, you can divide it in half to get an estimated amount of energy used by LEDs. So, it makes this solution not only environmentally friendly but also highly cost-efficient - LEDs need significantly less energy to work optimally as most of it is converted into light. It is especially beneficial if you choose them to light up places where they are switched on for longer periods.

Safety

LEDs don't contain any mercury as it's not used during the manufacturing process, making them far safer than traditional bulbs.

Longer-lasting

LEDs don't burn out or fail like incandescent lights. The exact lifespan will depend on many factors, such as how you use them, what kind of fixtures you have, and more, but they will last much longer than regular lights - between 30,000–50,000 hours on average. When their end is nearing, they start to dim little by little, so you can prepare and buy new bulbs beforehand. All that reduces the costs involved in purchasing and replacing new bulbs.

How to choose the right indoor lighting?

There are many things you have to consider when choosing the most suitable indoor lights for your home or business, but one that is certain: LEDs are the way to go. They are a stylish, energy-efficient and cost-effective option for your indoor lighting project. Plus, they come in a wide variety of designs, colours, brightness and additional features, such as dimming functions. There really is no good reason why you shouldn't choose indoor LED lights over regular fluorescent, incandescent or halogen ones.

What you choose in the end will be dependent on many things, such as the environment, purpose of the indoor lighting, the position, the type of installation and the desired atmosphere. So, you will have completely different needs when choosing lights for your bedroom than you would for your kitchen.

Below, we've listed some of the criteria to consider when purchasing indoor LED lights::

Colour temperature

The colour of your indoor LED lights can transform the whole look and feel of the room, as different colours are suited for specific environments and tasks. So, it's essential to choose the right one for your specific needs.

The colour temperature of any light bulb is measured in Kelvins. Choose from warm yellow-white, quite like what you are used to with incandescent bulbs, to more natural white or a cool, bluish-white.

If you want indoor lighting that provides a warm glow, then choose an LED bulb with around 2700-2900 Kelvins. This is the perfect option for spaces with a lot of brown, wood, and warm tones of reds and gold. It will provide a soft and cosy atmosphere and will help you get in a more relaxed mood, so it is recommended more as the perfect lighting for the bedroom.

An LED with a measurement of 3500-4900 Kelvin will give you a cool, vibrant light, ideal for workspaces, such as the kitchen or the bathroom. It also works well in rooms decorated with cool colours like blue and green. Additionally, this is a much better choice for task lighting.

Lumens

The brightness of indoor LED lights can’t be measured by wattage, this is because they require that little electricity that the brightness isn’t affected by wattage. The brightness of LED lights is instead measured by lumens (lm), the higher the lumens the brighter the bulb. For comparison LED indoor lights with around 800 lumens will give a similar brightness to a 60-watt incandescent bulb.

Shapes and fixtures

You can find indoor lights in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and fixtures. Each one will provide a slightly different light beam spread and angle, so you need to know what you're looking for. You can choose from an almost 360-degree spread with the globe-type bulbs or opt for more focused and direct lighting with downlights or spotlights. The right LED light bulbs shape will depend on personal preference, the fitting, and the purpose of the lighting.

The cost of indoor LED lights

It is well known that LED bulbs are more expensive to initially buy than other lighting types. However, this initial outlay will soon pay off as you save money as LEDs are more energy-efficient and more durable. LED bulbs last between 4 - 15 years and can save up to 90% on your energy costs compared to traditional bulbs.

The initial cost of LED lighting is generally more because their components are more expensive to manufacture, mostly circuit boards and drivers; some also use phosphor, which is one of the rarest compounds in the world.
