Why Choose LED Lighting for Your Bathroom Upgrade

Technology is a wonderful thing in most aspects and it’s sure been a game changer when it comes to the lighting industry. Since 2015, homeowners have spent millions of pounds on upgrading their more traditional lighting to LED lighting and they’re reaping the rewards of doing so.

Your bathroom is a hugely important space within your home; it’s a sanctuary where you can wash off the hard work of the day, relax in the bathtub and pamper yourself. It’s also somewhere that you groom and get freshened up; ready to face everything you have to like a champ.

That’s why it’s so imperative to have the right lighting in your bathroom. A lot of bathrooms have poor lighting that doesn’t cast enough light on mirrors to be effective, or the lighting is simply wrong for the overall style of the bathroom.

If you are remodelling your entire bathroom or you simply want to upgrade the lighting to suit your modern fixtures, then LED lighting is the way to go.

 

Here’s why our first choice for bathroom lights are LED:

 

Prices are much better

The LED lighting market has seen a massive growth in popularity, which has resulted in more affordable prices for both bulbs and fixtures. It now costs a whole lot less to upgrade your lighting to LED than ever before.

Whether you are simply looking to swap out your bulbs to LED or you want to upgrade the entire system and go for the sleeker looking new LED fixtures and strips – then you can do so without the hefty price tag that used to accompany it.

 

A whole range of new styles

When people hear the term “LED lighting” they often think that they are going to end up with bare fixtures that cast some sort of fluorescent glow all over their homes. The truth of the matter is that the LED lighting market is now one of the most stylish and modern within the industry.

You can now get LED lighting for your bathroom in a huge range of styles to suit the décor of your bathroom, whether that’s contemporary, rustic or traditional. LED lights are cool, stylish and will add that little bit extra to bring your bathroom décor together.

 

An improved quality of light

We are well aware that the early attempts at LED lighting often produced the sterile white or blue light that you’d find in an office or a hospital and it wasn’t particularly stylish or flattering. However, the LED lighting industry has advanced so rapidly that you can hardly tell the difference between LED and incandescent lighting nowadays. LED lights are also dimmable, which makes them the perfect addition to any bathroom, as they can be as bright as they need to be for your grooming but put down low when you want to relax in the bath with some candles.

 

Smart lighting

One of the most wonderful things about LED lighting is its potential for connectivity; LED lighting can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet through an app. This means that you don’t have to get out of bed when you realise you’ve forgotten to turn the bathroom light off.

Smart lighting is also an important feature when it comes to the safety of your home, as you can turn lights on even when you are not there and deter anyone that thinks you are out.

 

Save energy

We are all becoming more and more conscious of the impact that we are having on the planet and one of the main problems is our energy consumption of fossil fuels and other non-renewable sources. LED lighting was developed due to the need for more energy efficient lighting solutions. LED bulbs use dramatically less energy than older bulbs; they use less energy and save you money on your monthly bills. We think that’s a win-win!

The Many Benefits of Choosing a Professional Interior Designer vs. Doing a DIY Renovation

Remodelling or starting to decorate your home from scratch is never the easiest thing. It takes time, money and the vision to create something that you will love for many years ahead. With all this in mind, it’s little wonder that many people hire interior designers to decorate their dream home.

In this article we outline just some of the benefits of hiring a professional interior designer vs. doing it all by yourself.

 

Time is money

There are no two ways about it: time is money and redecorating or building your home is going to take time regardless of whether you go alone or use a professional interior decorator. The big question is: How much time do you have to spare?

When doing a DIY project, you’ll have to take a very hands-on approach and it’s likely that you and your partner/family will be doing all the hard work yourself. This can be incredibly time-consuming if you have a full-time job and have to rely on after hours or weekends to get the decorating done.

When you hire a professional interior designer, he/she will usually come with a whole team of hands. The added bonus is that interior decorating is their full-time job and this means while you have to leave for your daily employment, you know that they are at your home doing the work for you.

 

Cost

The factor that puts most people off hiring professional interior decorators is the cost factor and the truth of the matter is, that if you are looking purely at per hour pay then sure, professionals are going to cost you a whole lot more than taking a DIY approach.

However, what many people tend to forget are the connections that professionals bring with them when it comes to building or sourcing items. Most professionals have preferred suppliers that they work with and this often comes with special prices.

Instead of shopping around and spending hours finding the perfect lighting fixture and getting charged full price, interior decorators can save you time and money through their well-used suppliers.

 

Your vision

Your home is your special place and whether you are decorating a modern marvel or a quaint cottage, you are undoubtedly going to have visions of what you want your space to look like.

The right interior designer will listen to your vision and put a professional take on it. He/she will be able to recognise all of the issues that someone who’s not experienced in design would overlook.

From incorporating the perfect colour palate and blend of different styles to making sure your space is both stylish and practical, you can be sure that your vision will be brought to life in the best way possible.

 

Less stress

Not sure what kind of furniture would match your chosen wallpaper? Confused about which style of bath would look great with your new luxury vinyl tiles and bathroom lighting fixtures? It can be stressful knowing which elements of your design will complement one another.

Working with a professional interior designer will make the process of decorating your space much less stressful so you can enjoy seeing your dream space come together before your eyes.
