LEaDing the way

How man times have you heard the phrases "ethically sourced", "environmentally friendly", "energy efficient" recently? Lots, right? Consumers are becoming more conscious in our purchases so products that are innovative, beautifully crafted and won't kill the planet are top on our list. When it comes to interior styling and decoration, lighting is right up there on the important things you need to consider. I don't know about you but, for me, lighting can make or break the style in a room as much as the layout or colour scheme. But with incandescent lighting (your traditional bulbs) becoming a thing of the past, are you able to find the perfect LED bulbs to achieve the lighting that your room needs?

Why is it important to understand LED lighting?

Because of the cost of high end LED bulbs, it is very important you get it right, first time. You really don't want to turn the light on at home after you unpacked the expensive bulb only to find that it is not bight enough or gives off the wrong kind of "white" colour. Also, because of their circuitry, LED bulbs are not always compatible with traditional dimmers! You need to make sure you find bulbs that are or replace your current dimming switch with a leading-edge (LED-compatible) dimmer (more expensive option).
