Lighting

I bought LED light bulbs, bought CFL bulbs and have come to the conclusion that I have to change how I approach lighting. Neither LED or CFL seem to dim well, even the ones that are supposed to be able to. Solution: instead of making one set of bulbs function as work lights and, when dimmed down, as mood or accent lights, one needs to think of using several sets of bulbs – and no dimmer. This could be more beautiful, actually. Here is the perfect location for work light and over there is where a few dim LEDs provide moody illumination. I am going to experiment with this over the Summer. Stevo offered to lend me his expertise as Lighting Designer and we will try to come up with something that is as efficient as it is beautiful and complimentary to the space.

    Nice Post Ottmar!

    Two months ago I converted every single conventional GE bulb in my home to LED and CFL bulbs that I purchased at the home center and health store. Some of the watts are as low as three watts per bulb. Unfortunately, there are sections of my home that work off of dimmers which now have insufficient lighting because of the energy efficient bulbs. Besides hiring an electrician, do you have any advice?

    I am interested to see whatever results you get on this topic.

    Good luck with the tour.
