Energy-Efficient Lighting

Lighting is a vital part of the interior design process. As you choose which type of lighting to use, consider energy-efficient lighting bulbs such as LEDs or CFLs.


A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source that emits light when current flows through it. Electrons in the semiconductor recombine with electron holes, releasing energy in the form of photons. These bulbs produce 90 to 112 lumens per watt.  Energy-efficient light bulbs like light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and halogen incandescent bulbs provide choices in colors and light levels. They will save you money, use less energy and last longer, and can be used with outdoor fixtures and will save energy if left on for long periods.


Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) is an energy-saving light designed to replace an incandescent light bulb. Some types of CFL were built to fit into light fixtures designed for incandescent bulbs.

With both the LEDs and CFLs, there are a variety of energy-efficient bulbs available to meet all of your color and light requirements. Although you may spend a little more to purchase energy-efficient bulbs, they last significantly longer than traditional bulbs, so you won’t need to replace them as often. Therefore, you’re not only saving money in the long run but also saving more energy.

Luxury does not have to be wasteful. Consume less and save energy by choosing energy-efficient lighting for your home.
