Think about the lighting in your home. Now imagine saving energy, reducing your maintenance and maximizing your design options. LED lighting is the latest wave in lighting technology that’s here to stay for these reasons and so many more.
Eco-friendly home features are quickly becoming the new norm, and LED (light-emitting diode) lighting is a great place to start. The technology behind these bulbs, rods, ropes, etc. allows you to replace 100 watts of incandescent lighting with 15 to 20 watts of LED. And because LED is longer lasting, you replace bulbs less often, reduce waste, and spend less. The design possibilities are endless – whether you want bright colors in a game room or a soft glow underneath a foyer balcony to provide ambiance, there is something available for you.
Considering the switch? We’ve pulled together a list of LED inspiration!
Single and Multi-room Options: LED lighting can be installed in one room to serve a particular purpose (like dramatic shower lighting in a bathroom) or throughout your home in a multi-room system. The latter is where you really start to see the energy and cost savings. Systems also provide the ultimate convenience. Lutron is one of the most trusted names in the LED industry, and we highly recommend them to our clients. Their systems allow you to seamlessly and centrally integrate lightening, video, audio, HVAC and home security – control is at your fingertips via a wall mounted unit, remote control, or smart phone.
Ultimate Entertainment: You love your home theater. The display is sharp, the sound amazing, and the furniture comfortable. Take your space to the next level with LED lighting – line the aisle between chairs like a movie theater, use dimmers to set the mood, or install backlighting on a ceiling ledge (pictured). So many color and design options make LED lights a fun, effortless way to bring a game room or party space to life.
Design Flexibility: Think about where you’ve seen LED lighting in action – airplanes, movie theaters, restaurants, office buildings, pools, landscaping, etc. The technology behind LED lights makes them much more flexible than standard light bulbs. For example, LED rope lighting can be twisted and tweaked to work with nearly any curve or angle, like this dramatic entryway. And Lutron offers dozens of color, style, and fabric choices. So no matter what you décor, you can find switches, plates, and keypads that fit your individual style.
This list just scratches the surface of LED lighting possibilities.
