What Is Indoor Lighting?
Indoor lighting is exactly how it sounds as it is lighting that is used to brighten an interior space. There are four types of indoor lighting options available: task lighting, accent lighting as well as decorative lighting.
Why Should You Choose Indoor LED Lights?
LED lighting has quickly become one of the most popular lighting choices on the market - not just for your indoor lighting but for various lighting solutions as a whole. The reason they have grown in popularity is due to their cost-effectiveness, impressive longevity and their boastful array of high-quality features. Below you will find more benefits that come with choosing indoor LED lights for various rooms in your home.
If you think about all of 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. This makes this solution not only environmentally friendly but also extremely cost-efficient.
They also require far less energy to work optimally as most of it gets converted into light. These are especially beneficial if you choose them to light up places which require you to keep the lights on for a prolonged period.
LEDs do not contain any mercury as it is not used during the manufacturing process. This makes them far safer than traditional bulbs.
LEDs don’t burn out or fail like incandescent bulbs. This is attributed to their exceptional life expectancy. Opting for LEDs, you can expect them to last anywhere between 30-000-50-000 hours. Traditionally, you will start to see them little by little towards their end.
What’s more, we also suggest that when you are renovating your home - you should check out other products such as adding a Pop-Up Plug Socket to your kitchen.
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 thing 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 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, the purpose of the indoor lighting, position, type of installation and 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:
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 red and gold. This will also guarantee a soft and cosy atmosphere whilst helping 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.
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.
