3 Reasons why LEDs are perfect for DIY

December 28, 2022

LED lighting is a popular and energy-efficient choice for home lighting. In recent years, it has become increasingly popular among DIYers to make use of LED products that offer customisation, automation, and a unique ambience. In this article, we will cover three different uses and reasons behind the LED interior design movement.


Accent, task, and mood lighting

LED accent lighting is a great way to highlight specific features or areas of your home. This could include spotlighting artwork, illuminating stairways, or highlighting architectural features. For example, VidaXL has a range of TV stands that have LED lights built into them, which makes the television area look particularly appealing when the TV isn’t on.


Accent lighting adds visual interest and helps create a warm and inviting atmosphere. But, it can also be used to create a specific mood or ambience. In your lounge during the evening, for example, you may want a warm reading light vibe where things feel romantic or cosy. But, in your bedroom during the morning, you may want something brighter to wake you up.


In certain areas of your home, such as the kitchen or office, task lighting can be used for completing specific tasks. Many people work, eat, sleep, and exercise in their homes. LED lighting can reflect your tasks, such as being bright and focused to make it easy to see what you're working on, or certain colours to activate certain emotions.


Outdoor Lighting

LED lighting is a popular choice for outdoor lighting because it is durable and resistant to harsh weather conditions. Sometimes it can be difficult to know where to put the LED strips, but attaching them to good quality outdoor furniture is always a reliable option.


LED lighting can be used to illuminate pathways, accentuate landscaping, or highlight the exterior of your home. Plus, as we will discuss in a moment, they can be automated to turn on and off at night.


Energy-efficient lighting and automation

One of the major benefits of LED lighting is its energy efficiency. In the current climate of rising energy bills, this could make them a worthwhile investment. LED bulbs use up to 80% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs, but they also have a lot more mileage - no more replacing bulbs every year.


One of the major ways they save money too is through automation. It’s much easier to connect LED lights to WiFi than traditional lighting, and this means they can be controlled by an app or better, a program schedule. This saves energy because they turn on and off when you don’t need them - you’ll never forget to turn them off at night.


But, it also leverages all of the previous points too. Automation can mean switching to task lighting is more effective, because perhaps your working day starts at 9, you will automatically see the lights change to the most optimal colour for this part of the day in a particular part of the home.



In conclusion, LED lighting is a versatile and energy-efficient choice for home lighting. It can be used for a variety of purposes, including accent lighting, task lighting, outdoor lighting, as well as to save energy and time.
