LED lighting is fast becoming the go-to option for homeowners because it’s energy efficient, holds up longer over time, and its versatility allows for creative lighting designs.
Not the creative type? Don’t worry!
Our electricians in Springfield have completed many beautiful home lighting projects.
Before we dive into designs, a quick word on LED bulbs.
You might not be aware that watts are not the measure of brightness. Lumens are.
When you go to buy LED bulbs, you will compare lumens and color. Here’s a quick guide to that if you need it.
Without further ado, here are just a few ways Bonnivier Electric can install LED lighting in each room of your home!
LED lighting ideas for the bedroom
Professionally-installed recessed LED lighting and LED light strips can produce some stunning 3D-like effects and a stylish, modern look.

As for design, you can use the same indirect lighting ideas to accent walls and ceilings or underneath sofas and chairs similar to what we’ve shown for the bedroom.

LED bathroom lighting ideas
Functional but elegant. That’s the idea behind LED lighting designs and how you can turn a boring bathroom into one your guests talk about like this one from Houzz:
LEDs around the mirror to give you an evenly lit face to get ready in the morning and colored lights for the shelf underneath for added flair and to direct your guests to the extra towels and washcloths.
Showers and bathtubs can be illuminated too.Walk-in showers can have lights above or in the floor below. Here’s an example of the former from Next Luxury:
