LED Striplight kits are growing in popularity. They have gone from being a specialist lighting item, used mainly in bars and nightclubs to a mainstream item used in many homes.
LED Striplight Kits save Energy
There is a growing trend for consumers to use LEDs in their homes and businesses rather than halogen, standard incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. The reasons behind this change in preference are varied, but without a doubt, the main reason for the increasing popularity of Light Emitting Diode bulbs is related to their energy efficiency.
The fact that the cost of electricity has soared in the past few years has lead many people to think very carefully about how they use power. The press, government and the power companies themselves are constantly reminding people of how small changes like turning appliances off completely rather than leaving them in standby can save them money. This has lead homeowners and business owners to look at how they use power in detail, and take several different steps to save power. Most people now know that LED bulbs use 75 to 80% less power than incandescent bulbs. Also, on average, they last 25 times longer than standard bulbs.
However, one of the other reasons their use has grown so quickly is the quality and range of the light emitted by LEDs. The fact that LEDs give off anything from a bright stark white light to a muted, soft light in many different colours is one reason they are so widely used.
Decorative Led Striplight Kits
Using LED lights, it is possible to give a room its own unique look and feel, its own ambience. There are so many different ways to use them.
For example, LED striplight kits can be used under kitchen cabinets to cast a warm light direct onto the kitchen counters. This creates a practical workspace as well as a warm, cosy feel to the kitchen.
LED striplights can be cut to size, go around corners and come in a range of colours. They are perfect for decorating a room, defining a space or highlighting an architectural feature or a sculpture, picture or painting.
