Lighting is an often underestimated facet of buildings, outdoor spaces, and interiors. It can serve to enhance, detract, annoy, highlight, or even hide certain features. Even more important, lighting can play a crucial part in the energy consumption and environmental footprint of a building or space. Let’s examine different ways that LED lighting solutions can be used for both interior and exterior applications, and how LED lighting technology can decrease a building’s consumption and footprint.

  • Using LED lighting technology for aesthetic purposes. Niagara Falls.pngLED lighting has been used for some pretty amazing applications: lighting up Niagara Falls, highlighting the awesomeness of extreme sports, and making holiday celebrations all the more beautiful. Lighting has been a useful tool for hundreds of years, and it has been used to accentuate, highlight, and showcase works of man-made art, natural splendor, and amazing architecture. Thankfully, LEDs have enabled people and organizations to use better lighting to achieve aesthetic effects in a variety of applications.
  • Lighting can impart a certain mood. Does anyone remember the movie “Office Space”? Quite often, the Initech office space is what’s conjured up when someone thinks of office lighting - droll furniture, droll employees, few windows, and that awful fluorescent lighting system. For too many people, this is a depressing environment to work in. Changes to interior lighting at the office can have positive impacts on worker productivity and help to impart certain moods. Consider LED office lighting to improve the work environment. (Read here to learn how fluorescent lighting stacks up against LED lighting technology.)
  • LED lighting can be used indoors to accent features. Lighting for Interior Kitchen SpaceLED lighting technology is great for highlighting key features in a residential or business setting. For instance, in this picture, you can see how ornate stonework and custom flooring are highlighted by small yet powerful LED indoor lighting fixtures. This technology can be used to draw attention to thoughtful pieces or designs made to impress visitors. 


LED lighting technology is superior to conventional lighting solutions in three important ways: decreased maintenance costs, higher quality lighting, and reduced energy consumption. In addition, LED lights come in a wide variety of colors, fixtures, hues, and shapes, and a custom-built LED lighting solution is accessible for many organizations.

  • Reduced maintenance costs with LED lighting solutions. Did you know that LED lights last four to forty times longer than conventional technologies? What this means is that organizations do not need to spend as much money on parts and labor to replace bulbs burning out.
  • Improved lighting quality. Many types of conventional bulbs fall short of LED technology in parameters such as color rendering index (CRI), foot-candles, and more. LEDs can provide light that is warm, cool, directional, and accurately displays color. Want to learn more about how LEDs are putting other lights out of business?

  • Reduced energy consumption with LED lighting fixtures. LED lighting uses a different technology (electricity rather than fuels and gases) than most other lights, and this makes it much more efficient. Another quality that decreases required energy is that LEDs are directional, which means that they can output light towards a desired 180° or less, as opposed to emitting light in 360° with much of that being wasted.
