Kitchen Remodeling Ideas: LED Light Bulbs

When embarking on a kitchen renovation, there are numerous kitchen remodeling ideas to consider. First, there’s the fun stuff: picking the cabinets, countertops, backsplash, paint, and flooring. Next, there’s the practical stuff: appliances, sink, and fixtures. And last, there are the little things, the things that homeowners often forget to consider until they’re in a time crunch: electrical, plumbing, and lighting. Believe it or not, there are many choices when it comes to lights. Sure, homeowners can spend hours in a lighting store picking out the fixtures, but what about the bulbs? Currently the options are a bit overwhelming, but experts recommend switching to LED.

LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, are energy efficient and long lasting. In fact, their projected lifespan is from 35,000 to 50,000 hours! Compare that to a traditional light bulb, which burns for 750-2,000 hours and it’s obvious that LED is the superior choice. They also come in many shapes and sizes, including the “vintage” or “Edison” style that is so popular right now. Whether a homeowner’s kitchen remodeling ideas include being eco-friendly, farmhouse industrial, or budget friendly, they are a great choice.

Still not convinced? Here are some more reasons to switch to LEDs:

  • Colorful: LEDs come in an array of colors and provide a brighter color than a traditional light bulb.
  • Quiet: Homeowners will hear nary a hum or buzz with LEDs. They work in complete silence.
  • Safe: LEDs emit little to no heat, so no burnt fingers or houses. They are also very durable, so no broken glass, either.
  • Quick: LEDs reach their full lighting potential in mere microseconds, meaning no more waiting for the light to warm up.
  • Consistent: LEDs stay true to their colors when dimmed, unlike incandescent lights, which turn yellow.
