Recent innovations in led lighting are creating a stir in the interior design industry and the home do-it-yourself market. It is now possible to apply led lighting to virtually any surface to create dazzling effects with the minimum of expense and disruption to your home. Modern led light strips are less than 2mm thick and are simple to apply using the self-adhesive backing tape that they come with.
The variety of uses that led light strips can be put to use for is only limited by your imagination as it able to be used virtually anywhere. It is ideal for lighting shelving, lighting up stair edges or even inside the glove box of your car. It can also be used around door frames, lighting for under kitchen cabinets and cupboards etc. The leds give a wide 120 degree glow without producing any dots or hotspots.
Led lighting in the home can change the appearance and atmosphere of a room cheaply and easily. Led lights for bathrooms can create a warm, relaxing glow as you relax in the bath and as they are totally waterproof there is no need to worry about ever splashing water on them. A led shower head is one of the most recent innovations to come on to the market. It displays 4 different colors which indicate the temperature of the water running through it so you need never step into a cold shower again. The led shower head is completely self powered and requires no wiring and can be installed in less than a minute making it an attractive feature for any modern bathroom.
Led lights have many advantages over conventional lights and spotlights. They give a very clean light with no UV, they have a very long lifetime and they also use very little power. I think the main benefits of led lighting are its versatility. As a led strip can be applied to virtually any surface there are hundreds of different ways of using them and colour changing led can enhance the mood and appearance of virtually any room.
