Sometimes you need to get a drink of water in the middle of the night, but you do not want to turn on the lights and wake your family. No need to fret, there is a solution. LED lights and LED extrusions can be very helpful on those dark nights and can help increase the safety of you and your family.
One option available is LED light strips. The strips can be placed along the hallways; they could even be placed in the rooms if you want. Be sure to consider strips with motion sensors so they turn on only when you need them. This should make it a lot safer for you and your family to move about at night.
You should also consider LED extrusions. The extrusions should make it easy to both protect and conceal the LED light strips along the walls, floors, or wherever you decide to place the strips. The extrusions are usually made of aluminum and help keep the light source safe from impact. It also ensures that the lights are not easily accessible. This is a very useful feature since children do tend to be curious.
The extrusions can be customized. You can dim the lights just a bit, or make them more opaque. This is important since you are attempting to use them at night. The eyes have a hard time adjusting to light when they have been in darkness. Opaque lights are easier on the eyes.
You should also think about the colors you want for your LED strips if they are mainly going to be used at night. This is important because the eyes take time to adjust to certain colors. The hardest color to adjust to is yellow or pure bright light; this might be too harsh on you and your family’s eyes. So try to use soft light, like blue, green, or even purple. These dimmed colors will not be as overwhelming as pure white or yellow.
As you can see, there are a few reasons to have LED light strips and LED extrusions installed in your home.
