It’s easy to hear someone says that there are hundreds of LED light uses, but sometimes it’s hard to imagine how you could use them in your own house or next interior design project. LED lights have become much more common in homes in recent years, and with their multiple benefits, including energy efficiency and a long lifespan, it’s no surprise. There is no way we could list all the great places we’ve seen LED lights used, but here are our top five favorite LED light uses.
1. Under cabinet lighting
One of the most common LED light uses is adding additional lighting under wall mounted cabinets in kitchens. Under cabinet lighting reduces the shadows that are created by standard overhead lighting. It also illuminates food preparation areas and is a source of low level lighting for late night trips to the kitchen.
Closets tend to be some of the darkest areas of our homes, which can make seeing everything you have stored in your closet pretty difficult. Adding a light source can be a huge benefit, not to mention how helpful it is to be able to see everything clearly when you are trying to decide what to wear in the morning!
3. Interior Spotlighting
Spotlighting is a great way to highlight a certain area of a room while adding a softer overhead light. Spotlights can be used throughout a home and are often found in kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms. They often add more visual interest than a pendant light fixture and can be used to illuminate darker areas of a room.
4. Recessed Lighting
The long lifespan of LED lights make them the perfect choice for recessed lighting. Recessed lights are often installed in high and hard to reach areas, and no one wants to change those bulbs more often than they have to. LED lights have a life expectancy of 50,000 hours. That means if you use your light for 10 hours a day, 7 days a week, you won’t have to change that bulb for at least 13 years.
5. Commercial Applications
LED lights aren’t just being used in homes. There are hundreds of commercial applications as well. LED lights come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, and what you can do with them is only limited by your creativity.

Of course, there are hundreds of different ways LED lights can be used in homes and commercial settings. With all the benefits to LED lighting, they have become a popular choice for interior designers and homeowners.
