Lighting is imperative for any space, whether in residential areas or places of work. It is equally essential that the choice of illumination fits the kind of environment it is needed for, creating a balance between safety, functionality, being economical, and aesthetics. The use of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) is fast becoming a favourite for domestic and commercial use.

LED technology is a blazing solution to the lighting world, seamlessly creating the balance needed. When compared to the traditional lighting bulbs, LED has a longer lifespan of 50,000 hours, which is 25 times more than that of a regular bulb. In addition to this, the energy consumed is about 90% less, thus making it incredibly economical. LED bulbs also come in a wide range of colours, giving you room to play around with your lighting and transform spaces from ordinary to extraordinary.
