    How LED Lighting Was Used To Enhance A Kitchen
    With my original downlighting setup in my kitchen, I had 16 50W GU10 halogen bulbs, which whilst I was happy with their lighting levels, I was becoming increasingly frustrated with having to keep replacing the bulbs that for no apparent reason kept blowing out! It felt like it was happening almost every month and It was at a rather dimly-lit dinner party that I was recommended by a family friend to switch to a low energy, longer lasting form of lighting, which I was told would save me on energy costs as well as not having to always replace my bulbs.

    How LED Lighting Was Used To Enhance An Office Space
    We decided to use LED lighting for all areas, making use of the dimming Philips 7W GU10 mains bulbs as our chosen downlighter in combination with the fire rated iCage. This gave us a simple installation without the need for costly transformers but still being able to dim the main lighting and power save! In the end we were able to provide general lighting to the whole office area with LED bulbs for less power output then that of just one 50W low voltage halogen!! And no the quality, brightness and colour temperature was not compromised! And yes before I started out it was a concern that this would be the case.
