Tips for LED Lighting in Your Home

LED lights produce less heat, come in a variety of decorator styles, and can produce eye-pleasing lighting effects. The following tips and slideshow, courtesy of HD Supply, an online retail seller of LED products, will demonstrate how LEDs can modernize any space … even the garage.
We’ve summarized some of the tips here as well:

• Because LED lights emit less heat than incandescent bulbs they are ideally suited for showcasing wall art.
• For nighttime reading use a 50-watt to a 60-watt equivalent bulb.
• Use a bulb with a bright white color temperature for your kitchen.
• Make sure pendant lights have a 30- to 36-inch clearance above countertops and tables.
• Decorative LED lighting placed behind an entertainment center can add ambiance to a room.
• LED tape lights can be cut to fit any application.
• Position sconces beside a bathroom mirror. Choose 20-watt to 25-watt equivalent bulbs.
• Keep the light in your office no brighter than your computer screen to prevent eye fatigue.
• Use LED bulbs to saturate the area behind a headboard with a warm glow.

What Kind of Lighting Does Each Room Need?

Kitchen

There are two rules of thumb: You should have a mix of light sources at different levels to create a flattering ambience, and you need appropriate task lighting for whatever you do in that space (reading, sautéing, getting dressed). Here are tips for five key spots.

LED lighting solution globally.

Living Room
Light three of the four corners, focusing one of those lights on an object (art, a plant, a striking chair). Use a combination of table lamps and floor lamps, some with a downward glow and some that shine upward. Allow for reading in as many seats as possible with down-glowing lamps on three-way switches. If you have an overhead fixture, put it on a dimmer (see What’s the Deal With Dimmers?).

Dining Room
To draw people in, make the table the brightest spot in the room. Use a chandelier or a pendant above the table, limiting the total wattage to 100. Elsewhere in the room, indirect lighting is best—it’s relaxing and flattering. Give the space a subtle glow with a pair of small table lamps on a sideboard or matching sconces on the wall above. Battery-powered votives inside a glass-front china cabinet can be a nice touch.

Kitchen
Focus on overhead lighting (on a dimmer that you can crank up when cooking), and add lower sources to illuminate work surfaces. Use pendants, under-cabinet lights, or a sturdy table lamp (kept away from the sink).

Bedroom
Aim for a cozy, insular atmosphere: Place reading lamps or sconces by the bed—but not pointed directly at it. If you have recessed or track fixtures, angle them away from the bed, toward the dressing area. On a low table, include a small, intimate lamp with a tinted low-wattage bulb to mimic candlelight.

Bathroom
The best choice for applying makeup is sidelights, such as a pair of sconces flanking the mirror. An overhead light helps fill in any shadows on your face and also fully illuminates the room (important when cleaning). In a large space, you might also want a light directly over the shower.
