LED lights are taking on a life of their own. You are now starting to see them everywhere. I’m guessing this is because not only have they come way down in price, but also because the quality and the color versatility of these bulbs is awesome. Well, at least in my opinion.
My mother, on the other hand, has been a hold out. She had not had good luck with some energy-efficient bulbs she had tried and felt most didn’t have the right color. Recently, while I was visiting at her house and she was away, I secretly purchased four dimmable LED spotlights and installed them for her. These lights are way cool! At full brightness they are a cool white or daylight color – perfect for the room in office mode. Dim the lights down and they gradually turn to a soft warm glow – now just right for TV room mode. Talk about a perfect light for a room that serves as an office during the day but a family room at night!
When my mother came back and tried the lights out for herself, she loved them! Matter-of-fact she loved them so much that she went out and purchased more for other rooms in her house. Success! And better yet, these LED bulbs should not need to be changed for years – a bonus with these ceiling spotlights.
LED bulbs have come a long way in just a few short years. Not only will they save you electricity costs right off the bat, they will make life easier since they last so long. They come in many shapes and sizes and I’ve found a wide variety in local lighting stores, as well as big box stores, grocery stores, online and more. Personally I’ve had great success with them and hope you will give them a try too (if you haven’t already) and see what works for you and your home. Have a bright day!
