As a content creator and someone who relies heavily on photography to inspire others, lighting plays a critical role in my line of work. I’m always looking for the optimal lighting when shooting photos or working on a creative project. But, regardless if you depend on lighting in your profession or not, we can’t deny that lighting affects many aspects of our lives.
LIGHTING CAN IMPACT OUR MOODS.
It can make us be more productive or break our concentration. It can help us sleep like babies or mess up our sleep cycle. And lighting is one of the simplest ways to spruce up our homes and give it an instant design uplift!
Prior to our recent master bathroom and new mudroom renovations, I’ve always complained about the frequent need to replace our incandescent bulbs and how dark and gloomy our ‘basement’ was due to inadequate lighting. As part of upgrading the lighting fixtures in these new and improved rooms, we decided it was also time to improve all the lighting in our house, starting with the living room first.
Our living room has two floor lamps and a series of pot lights. The two floor lamps had incandescents and I’ve always found that the lighting was too yellow and that the fixtures heated up after a couple hours of usage. The slight yellow tinge also made the room seemed dated and tired.
We replaced the bulbs with SYLVANIA SMART + LED Adjustable White A19 and are extremely satisfied with the end result! Not only is the overall aesthetic and design of the room elevated, we’re also saving on energy by 80% and experiencing a better and higher quality of light compared to that of incandescent bulbs.
These bulbs offers a full adjustable range of white colour temperatures (2700k to 6500k) allowing us to create soft white lighting almost resembling that of daylight even during the late evening.
The most impressive feature of the SYLVANIA SMART + LED Adjustable bulbs is that it can be connected through wifi by downloading the LIGHTIFY App allowing us to control the bulbs one by one (or all at once) anytime, anywhere by using our smart phones and even through other connected home devices!
The App offers control settings for turning the lights on or off and adjustments for brightness and light temperature/colour levels. These settings can be saved or modified anytime, giving us the flexibility to create just the type of lighting we want for any occasion.
If you’re interested in installing these SMART bulbs, be sure to also purchase the LIGHTIFY Gateway via Amazon.com as well needed to control the lights via the App.
Though when it comes to my work, I prefer natural lighting, however, since switching to Adjustable White LED bulbs, I now have added opportunities to create imagery even during the wee hours of the day.
Upgrading our current light fixtures with SYLVANIA LED bulbs was a small gesture that resulted in huge impact.
