LED lights are becoming a popular choice for homeowners when it comes to selecting their light bulbs, as they have proven to be much more energy efficient, whilst maintaining an excellent brightness and quality of lighting.
However, LED lights are known to be extremely versatile, so their functionality makes them the perfect lighting solution for a whole host of different applications that can be found both in and out of the home! Led lights can be found in many forms including led rope lights, strip lights and led ribbon lighting to name a few.
Admittedly, these may not have much of a purpose aside from looking fantastic, but it’s great to know how to make these (or at least know they exist for us at parties etc.) This type of LED art can be extremely beautiful and above – cool. Throwies consist of small LED’s attached to a coin battery and a tapped on magnet. The idea is to tape several lights together each of a different colour that can look really good! They are perfect for any type of party, or simply a decoration for your home!
LED’s can be installed inside keyboards, serving as a light beneath the keys which seeps through the gaps, giving the keyboard a very cool look. The lights installed beneath the keys can be all the same colour, or if you want something a little different, you can have a range of colours. Installing LED lighting into your existing keyboard may prove a difficult task for most, so purchasing keyboards that are already designed and fitted with lights beneath the keys is often the best selection for someone wanting a very aesthetically pleasing keyboard!
Light emitting wallpaper is slowly becoming present in a very select amount of properties, as they can make for a hugely unique room with a very magical atmosphere. The back layer of the wallpaper is constructed by “sandwiching” a number of layers together that combine to produce the light. The back layer is a silver-based solution that conducts electricity, while the layer above this contains phosphorous pigments that light up. The layer above this is a flexible transparent ITO conductor layer, with regular wallpaper placed on the top, which acts as the outer visual layer. This light emitting wallpaper can be turned on and off, just like a regular light, making it extremely usable and potentially viable for those keen on the idea and with the wallpaper budget of a few thousand pounds!
Promoting Plant Growth
LED lights have been commended for their quality output and this has been recently put to the test on promoting plant growth. It has been suggested that this type of lighting is capable of matching the light spectrum needed to compliment photosynthesis. LEDs are flexible in which direction they are focusing on, so there is no need for reflective materials as they can be shined directly on the plants.
So, if you’re feeling adventurous, or simply want something different, you could try making these LED illumination items yourself, or even buy some of them readily made.
