The switch to the use of LED bulbs marks our consciousness of energy saving, eco-friendliness and still artistic need of lighting.

The lights can have a rather long life span. People prefer the incandescent lights for the color, but still in most cases, LEDs are more advantageous.

Different Types of Home Lighting

We love to decorate our rooms to create a cozy and romantic living space. There are different types of lighting for home decor, from ambient light, decorative lighting, task light to accent lighting. Ambient lighting is general light for overall glow, yet the light should not be sharp or too conspicuous. As for task lighting, it is usually used for specific task, such as illuminating artistic items at home, lighting for work or reading. Accent lighting is used for highlighting certain objects or areas. Then the decorative lighting, is a kind of design element, more for decoration than illumination.
