Bring Beauty, Elegance, and Fun to Your Home’s Lighting Design

LED lighting in a media room.

An LED Lighting Installation Offers Limitless Colors of Light

There was a time when we had to settle for soft or bright white lighting with some dimming capabilities, but the color of each bulb remained constant. Flipping on the light switch or using the dimmer was the extent of our lighting control. 

Then light-emitting diodes or LED lights came on the market. Eventually, they offered dynamic and full-spectrum lighting - every color of light in the visible light spectrum. Let’s explore what an LED lighting installation means to homeowners on Cape Cod and how these lights are transforming lighting design.

LED and Full-Spectrum Lighting

When we think of every color in the visible light spectrum, our thoughts may turn to the colors of the rainbow—about seven shades ranging from red to violet. But we don't see all the colors in between in their varying hues and intensities—these amount to over 16 million colors of light, from saturated deep tones to soft pastels. 

The amazing aspect is that these colors are now available to homeowners and designers. You can turn one light or every light to every imaginable hue with one button tap. Are you having friends over for dinner? Set the kitchen and dining area lights to the soft shade of golden candlelight. 

Do you want to surprise your guests when they enter the bathroom? Consider a splash of arctic blue. Are you heading to the media room or home theater after dinner? Set the mood with LED fiber optic galaxy ceilings with red or violet tones laced throughout the room. With unlimited colors available, you can treat lighting like a palette and your home as the canvas.

Creating a Greener Home

The other benefit offered by LED lighting is decreased energy consumption. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, residential LED lights can use up to 75% less energy than incandescent lights and last up to 24 times longer. By 2035, they project that most lighting installations will use LED technology and that energy savings from these installations could equal the yearly energy output of over 92 1,000 MW power plants.

These lights also emit very little heat, making them ideal for those celebrating the holidays with lighting design. You can connect over 25 strings of lights without overloading a socket and use the same string of lights for 40 holiday seasons.

Integrating Lighting and Home Automation

When integrated with your home automation platform, you experience one-touch control of lighting, shades, climate, entertainment, security, and more. Our certified technicians can program preset scenes that control these systems with just one touch of an icon or button on a touchscreen or custom-engraved in-wall keypad. Tap the "Dining" button, and the lights throughout your home settle into preselected hues and intensities while your preferred dining playlist streams through your home.
