The beauty of LED lighting in Design

LED lighting is being employed more and more in the home and not just to replace spotlights. Interior designers are increasingly working with them as they offer more flexibility with the vast range of colours available.

Fairly common now in retail and commercial use LEDs are finding their way into our homes and gardens up and down the country. There are countless online examples of how effective they are in illuminating our spaces.

Cost was always an issue in the past however prices have come down in recent years whilst the savings they make in the long run are now widely accepted. You can even use an app on your phone  to turn lights on or off so you need never fear they are burning up energy if you’ve had to leave in a hurry.

Software can also be used to create a different mood in any room by switching colours  or highlighting a particular corner of a room to light a wall or staircase. They really come into their own in a kitchen lighting your worktops or an island from the ground up.

First introduced in 1962 by the American Nick Holonyak LEDs are now the eco friendly choice for Architects and Designers. Not just for inside the home they are perfect for lighting your garden. Once dark or dully lit gardens now come into their own after dark as you can see in the photos below.

We offer an installation and supply service which you can check out here. Heals employed us to install the lighting in their flagship shop in Totteham Court Road as you can see in the photo below. We’re pretty passionate about LEDs here at Stock In Trade so do give us a call if you’d like to know more about how we can help with your project.
