How to Create A Healthier, More Beautiful Home with LED Lighting
Help your body better synch up with its natural rhythm with a touch of style
It may seem shocking that the light fixtures in your home can have a dramatic impact on both your health and interior design, but it’s true. That’s the power of LED lighting.
By promoting better sleep and helping your body better align with its internal clock, LEDs can transform the way you live. Plus, you get to add a unique sense of style to your home with the power of tunable lighting. Not convinced? Read on to learn more about how LED lighting fixtures can revolutionize the way New York City homeowners live.
Before getting into how LED lighting fixtures can impact your body, let’s look at how they can impact your home. The truth is there is no substitute for LEDs; they use about 75 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs, they’re safer to handle than compact fluorescent bulbs, and tunable lighting gives you an unsurpassed range when it comes to the color and intensity of your light fixtures.
What is tunable lighting? Tunable lighting is a new concept in interior design made possible by warm-dimming LEDs. Whereas older dimmers only let you control the intensity of the light, tunable lighting lets you control the intensity and the color of your fixtures independently from one another.
Companies like Ketra (which was recently acquired by Lutron) and Colorbeam have led the way on tunable lighting, and we work with both manufacturers to bring you the ideal solution for your home. That way you can customize your home’s lighting in a way you never could before, giving you a chance to add more of your personal style to your home.
Now we come to the really exciting part: How LED lighting can improve your health.
Here’s an example for you: How does your day normally start? With a loud alarm blaring in your ear from your phone or alarm clock, most likely. Why not ease into the day by having your lighting control system bring up a soft, gradually increasing glow that mimics the suns rays until it’s time for you to wake. Doesn’t that sound so much more relaxing?
The same principle works in reverse when it’s time for bed. Instead of going from a bright room to a pitch-dark room, your lights can gradually dim while keeping a warm color tone, which helps tell your body that it’s time for sleep.
All these examples work by helping your body line up with its internal clock, which is called your circadian rhythm. We all have a natural rhythm to our energy levels throughout the day. There are different ways to make yourself more awake or sleepier if you want, but keeping close to your circadian promotes better sleep, helps you have more energy when it’s time to work, and generally improves your overall health.
These are just a few examples of the ways LEDs can help improve your health and your home’s style. To learn more, call us at 800-382-2939, or you can call our secondary line at 212-260-4715. You can also fill out our online contact form and someone will get in touch with you shortly.
