The Benefits of Custom Lighting
Well-chosen lighting elements can enhance the aesthetics of their surrounding space. Custom lighting has always allowed self expression to provide a sense of comfort and relaxation. AM Studio will customize fixtures that are best suited for you and your needs based on your personal objectives and taste. Whether you are designing a new living space or renovating your present home, it is a necessity to consider lighting as one of the major elements of your design.
Lighting fixtures are more than mere light sources; they are integral aspects to sound interior design. Well-chosen lighting elements can enhance the aesthetics of their surrounding space, and custom designed fixtures can offer the precise look and appeal a buyer desires. Aside from physical appearances, prospective buyers may also benefit financially from custom lighting based on the choices made in regards to the technology used.
The Advantages of Using Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Lighting
Compared to commonly used incandescent or halogen lights, which have life spans of 1,000 hours and 2,500 hours respectively, light-emitting diode (LED) lighting has a much longer lifespan of 100,000 hours. In addition, LED lights do not burn out, but rather grow dimmer over time. Studies show that traditional lighting options have an estimated 20 per cent efficiency, whereas LED lights have 80 to 90 per cent efficiency. Also, LED lights do not contain mercury, which is highly toxic and commonly found in compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), and they are entirely recyclable. For ecological consumers who are concerned with the efficiency of their energy usage, LED lighting is definitely an option worthy of consideration.
From an economic standpoint, LED lights can provide between 100 to 200 lumens per watt at a low wattage, compared to incandescent lights' production of 18 to 20 lumens per watt while using up to 10 times as much power. A reduction in watt usage translates to a reduction in electricity costs and switching from incandescent bulbs to LED lights will result in drastic cost reductions for the prospective consumer.
LED lights are also flexible in their application, as evidenced in their ability to direct focused light, eliminating the need for external reflectors. In addition, LED lights can be configured and manipulated in numerous ways, such as design, pattern, and luminance, making them the optimal choice for custom lighting.
Customizing Light Fixtures With Different Materials
With advancements in technology over the years, lighting customization can be performed using various materials, such as metal, crystals, glass, Mylar, and porcelain. Each of these materials has unique characteristics that contribute to the overall appeal of different lighting fixtures. Metal is often used to provide a framework for lighting fixtures and can be shaped into ornate structures with style and character. Crystals and glass offer a sense of elegance and can reflect light in a dazzling fashion. Mylar, a polyester film developed in the 1950s, is known for its strength, heat resistance, and insulation, allowing equal parts of light diffusion and warm glow. Porcelain is a great material for forming, enabling light sources to be encapsulated within amorphous shapes.
