Architects, engineers, and interior designers have long been waiting for a perfectly suited decorative light for interior designs. But the long wait is over with the birth of LED or Light Emitting Diode. LED has revolutionized interior lighting with its low cost, low power, high efficiency features. It can even replace incandescent bulbs for the home lighting. In this article we will be discussing the characteristics or features of LED as an innovative interior lighting. We will also discuss the possibilities and a few techniques on how to use LED in interior design. And lastly, we will talk about a few examples of LED which can be useful for interior design and specific purposes.

Why LED?

LED is generally cheaper, low-voltage, decorative, efficient, and does not emit heat as a by-product. LED is cheaper because it is low-voltage or it consumes lesser power than the incandescent bulbs, its counterpart. It means that you do not have to worry about your power or electric bill. It is decorative because it is available in different colors so that you can customize what colors to use and where to use them. It is advantageous because it is efficient and does not emit heat, like the incandescent bulb. LED has all the potentials of becoming the next trend not just in interior lighting design but also in interior lighting in general.

With LED, your homes will be as lively, as fashionable and as good as you want them to. Here are some of the uses and techniques which you can employ to create just the right blend of color lighting for your homes.

To enable to set a proper ambience or mood to your homes, you will have to choose soft or bright colors with differing intensities, as you prefer. In your rooms for example, you can install LED with just the right amount of light which you could achieve by picking LED wall panels to customize your lighting. Or you can have your wall embellished with different soft lights. Another is you could also replace your lamp light with LED having smooth soft color. This setting can also be applied to the dining room or to the work room.

Or you can also highlight the contour of the furniture--that would give a cool look-- that will be amazing for your children. Or you may want to have your cabinet intricate designs with LED. There are endless possibilities on how to create highlight to furniture. It all depends upon how creative you are.

They would not be limited to just the yellow or white light but, with LED, there are rainbow colors or even light toned ones. This will be very nice to look at and friendly to the eyes. Surely, they would complement and reflect the kind of personality that you have.

LED Light Reflections

Reflections complement interior designing. They can illuminate and intensify light. There are LED mirrors which you can experiment on to achieve the right blend and tone of light. LED mirror is a combination of a mirror, board and a clock. It informs you about the time, aside from its intensifying and illuminating properties. Just experiment on where to place it.

This is a RGB display spotlight. It has full DMX programming capabilities. It can be plugged directly into regular electrical outlets and it contains a built-in transformer.

A LED Light Bar is also for museum exhibition and can be used as lighting for sensitive materials. It does not emit ultraviolet radiation and therefore it cannot burn nor harm sensitive papers or other materials. It displays just one color--white. It can be used for architectural setting and displays, and also for the interior like in cabinetry or shelving.

There are also LED based products especially designed to make your car's interior glowing with exotic colors like glowing LED bars, stix or tubes. They can be placed under dash, seat or engine compartments for illumination.
