LED Indoor Lighting - Modern Technology
The change from conventional light sources to LED is just like the change from VHS to DVD: it is simply unavoidable! But no one mourns the loss of incandescent bulbs and the like. At least not once you have seen a real, high-quality LED live. Preferably directly in an LED luminaire that comes with permanently installed LED lighting technology.
Because such an LED light no longer resembles a luminaire with bulky incandescent lamps. Its design is modern, almost futuristic because the light source itself seems "invisible" (at least if you are used to protruding, luminous glass bulbs). But do you like a luminaire with a twist-out bulb much better? Our recommendation: Screw an LED bulb into your favourite light and enjoy all the advantages of modern LED lighting technology.
After all, it's not just the appearance of an LED light that's compelling; they are also eco-friendly and cost-effective. And who doesn't want that?!
What are the advantages of LED lights?
Everyone is talking about LEDs – and with good reason. Since the invention of the traditional light bulb in 1879, LED lighting technology has perhaps been the most innovative development in the lighting industry. LEDs come from a modern understanding of lighting – the technology meets the requirements of comfortable lighting and is environmentally friendly.
The great thing is that the development of LEDs is far from over - their qualities really shine when combined with smart home lighting.
In a nutshell, what are the qualities and benefits?
LEDs save high amounts of energy – up to 90% compared to traditional light bulbs.
Environmentally friendly lighting thanks to a high luminous efficiency (low wattage for high brightness).
Long lifespan thanks to their long life of up to 50,000 hours.
Immediate 100% brightness and no switch-on delay like with compact fluorescent lamps.
Mercury-free and therefore suitable for rooms like the nursery.
Adjustable light quality to suit individual preferences – with colours ranging from warm white to cool white to daylight white.
Great colour rendering of Ra 80 or higher, perfect for above dining tables, for example.
New designs thanks to compact, “invisible” in-build LEDs.
How do you find the right LED light for you?
LED bulbs have already proved highly successful in most areas where lighting is required. So, the next question is where exactly do you want to use your LED light? Whether you're looking for cosy general lighting for the living room or bright area lighting for the home office, we have it all: LED ceiling lights, LED wall lights, LED panels; for the latter, LED floor lamps and much more!
Read on for tips for each individual lighting category.
LED ceiling lights
Rooms need basic lighting and ceiling lights have been providing this for years. LED lighting technology hasn’t fundamentally changed this, but it has changed you having to constantly climb up ladders to replace burnt out light bulbs. LED bulbs require practically zero maintenance. Do you want even more convenience? When buying, look for dimmable LED ceiling lights. With these, you can adjust the brightness of your new favourite light to suit all situations.

LED hanging lights
Simply block out everything else and focus on the dining table - even if you haven't been eating for a long time but have started chatting. Or the dining table becomes a workplace. Because the dining table has a lot going for it. And the LED pendant light should play its part. Tips for added comfort: a height-adjustable light that can be dimmed at any time. Don't feel like dealing with dimmers for the latter? Then we have another tip for you: LED pendant lights with EasyDim. Here, the dimming technology is built into the luminaire and can be activated with any normal light switch.

A single ceiling spotlight brings specific areas of life into focus, such as the cosy wing chair where you can unwind and escape from the world after a challenging day's work. However, by installing several ceiling spotlights, you can illuminate the entire room, making it more inviting and lively. To enhance the lighting experience in your wing chair area, we recommend adding an LED ceiling floodlight. The advantage of LED spotlights lies in their ability to be individually directed, allowing you to ensure that every corner of your room is properly illuminated, regardless of its angles or layout. Here's a bonus tip to create a comforting ambience: try sitting in various favourite spots within your living room and make sure you're not directly facing any of the light sources, which could cause glare. By doing so, you can determine the optimal alignment for all the spotlights, resulting in the perfect lighting arrangement.

LED recessed downlights not only provide proper general lighting (provided there are enough recessed spotlights); they are also modern and stylish. Tip before you buy: If LED downlights are installed in small rooms, they make them look bigger – this is because there is no additional light projecting into the room that would make it appear smaller.

LED wall lights
Nothing highlights the design of a modern LED light like a wall light – at the end of the day, they are mounted at eye level. Do you want your new wall light to be more than just for show? Wall lights can come with a practical reading light above the bed. So, if you ever fall asleep and forget to switch off the light, it doesn’t really matter thanks to the technology’s long life and eco-friendly nature.

LED floor lamps
Of course, there are these very classic LED floor lamps with a beautiful shade on an elegant frame. There are also LED floor lamps that look so futuristic that you wouldn't even think they were floor lamps. But we also want to take a look at another LED floor lamp that should not be forgotten because it can do so much: the LED floor lamp for the office and home office. What does it do? In large companies, an enormous reduction in electricity consumption. And when huge companies go for LED, the value for our environment is enormous. You don't have a company but want to join in? Do so and help save energy with LED according to your possibilities.

LED desk lamps and table lamps
Hunched over books and documents until late at night? This is a whole lot easier with an LED desk lamp. LED desk lamps have an additional advantage, which sets them apart from all other desk lamps – you can change the colour temperature and brightness (please pay attention to this feature when buying). A single light can therefore emit a cool white light, ideal for working. Later on, the same light can easily switch to Relax Mode and illuminate the room with a dimmed, comfortable, warm white light – perfect for reading and even drifting off to sleep without worry.

LED panels are placed in either plasterboard ceilings (with a separate installation frame) or grid ceilings (for special standardised sizes). Don’t have either of these ceilings, and don't want to install one? No problem. If you still want to use an LED panel, you can install or hang it like a normal ceiling light.
Why are we so excited about LED panels? They're a simple and stylish light source and turn the concept of “light” on its head. They're significantly different from point light sources, like traditional light bulbs. With an LED panel, the entire surface is illuminated, and in some products with an RGB function it can even be illuminated in different colours. It ensures even, bright and glare-free lighting, providing large-scale illumination with one of the most stylish lighting methods of our time. Tip for comfort: Remote-controlled LED panels are extremely convenient.
