The versatility and durability of LED lighting makes it ideal for modern, design-led bathrooms. Many stunning looks and effects can be achieved with LED lights, which are also cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. With LED lighting, the bathroom you dream of can now be yours. Changing rooms In the past, the bathroom was a purely functional place, used for getting clean and very little else. How times have changed. The previously dull bathroom has now become a sanctuary, a place of rest and respite from our increasingly hectic lives. Candles, music, even scents are all used to create a feeling of calm and renewal. Whereas previous generations would have been happy to have a working bath inside their house, now homeowners spend hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds on bathroom fittings and features. Most estate agents will also tell you how important bathrooms are when it comes to selling homes. Advantages of LED One of the easiest but most effective ways to enhance the atmosphere of a room is through lighting and probably the most versatile and suitable form of bathroom lighting for this purpose is light emitting diode (LED) lighting. Fortunately, suppliers of LED bathroom lights UK have been quick to catch on to LED’s potential and to meet the growing demand from designers and consumers, so a wide variety of LED lighting options is available to purchase now. LED lighting brings many benefits to the design of a bathroom, for example, it is: Cost efficient – Although LED fittings and bulbs may cost a little more than their traditional counterparts at first, it is reasonable to expect them to have paid for themselves within fewer than five years. This is because LED bulbs are often guaranteed for up to 20 years, so rarely need replacing. Also LED bulbs use very little energy compared with traditional lights, so save money in terms of power consumption. Versatile and inspiring – LED lights come in a multitude of colours and forms and can be grouped together to create any shape and even 3D ‘sculptures’. You can attach some or all of your LEDs to dimmers and timers, which allows you to create many different ‘mood lighting’ effects, including colour changes and cycles. You need not limit your use of LEDs to the bathroom ceiling, either. Designers have had great success using LED lights on bathroom walls and floors, along the edges of walls, around mirrors and other fittings and all sorts of combinations in between. Specific – to be approved for use in a bathroom, a light fitting must have a suitable IP rating. There are LED lights rated at all IP levels that may be required for bathrooms. This means that now, it’s even possible to put LED lights right inside your bath or shower. If you are considering LED bathroom lights UK suppliers often have websites that will show you just how wide a range of styles and applications is available. Why not have a look and see what appeals to you? As well as its affordability and versatility, LED lighting has strong environmental credentials as well, using far less power than conventional lighting and containing no toxic elements. LEDs are also recyclable. Looking forward With LED lighting sales expected to have a 70% share of the global market by 2020 and with strong environmental and performance advantages, LED bathroom lighting is surely the way of the future. Why not consider it for your bathroom, today? Author Bio : James Holden is the digital content manager of Visible Lighting and has many years’ experience in the LED Lighting industry.
