It’s no secret that Mike and I are looking to buy a house next year so we’ve been gradually looking at the style of decor and colours we want for each room and what changes we would make to be more environmentally friendly. One change we will be making for sure is to be using LED lights as they are a highly energy-efficient technology and have the potential to change the future of lighting! LED’s use at least 75% less energy, and last 25 times longer, than incandescent lighting which makes total sense to change to. They can also add a lot of personality to a room, like this Star Wars neon light sign for any fan of a galaxy far, far away!
We already have LED spotlights in the flat so I wanted to challenge myself to find some inventive ways to use LEDs. There are some really great way to use Bedroom LED Lighting and here are a few of the off the wall ways we are planning on implementing them…
Wardrobe Hanging Rails
What a bloody great idea?! I always struggle to find stuff in my wardrobe as it’s so filled to the brim so this would most certainly improve my life! They also come with built-in sensors so that the lighting can switch on and off with the opening and closing of the wardrobe door which saves plenty of energy and doesn’t have to be wired to a switch.
I think it would be great to put these in places like the cupboard under the stairs, kitchen cupboards so you can find exactly what you’re looking for all of the time!
Round Spot Plinth Lights
I’d add these little guys around the skirting board so it can be switched on at the bedside when you need to use the loo in the night and don’t want to turn on the main bedroom light to wake everyone up! They are pretty discreet too so they won’t be easily noticeable.
I’ve noticed a few hotels and AirBnB’s that we’ve stayed in have had these and I think they’re such a great idea! I’d also pop these in spare bedrooms so if we have guests they can easily find the loo and won’t wake up the rest of the house trying to find it!
Fixed LED Picture Light
I always love it when you go to posh hotels and they have their artwork lit up with cute little lights so I want some too! I’ve seen some really cool soundwave images from your favourite song and I’d love to have those above our bed with the lights above so we look hella boujee! I’d go with Juneau by Funeral for a Friend and I’m sure Mike would pick ‘Streetcar’ by them too! They also look bright enough to be able to read a book under so they can double up as bedside lights too so that saves on lighting!
I think these are some really cool ways to incorporate energy-saving LEDs into our bedroom in some pretty cool ways without just having spotlights!
How would you use LED lights to improve your bedroom?
