Lighting for Accent

Accent lighting focuses light on a particular area or object.It is often used to highlight art or other artifacts.

Choose from a variety of different lighting products that can be used for accent lighting, both indoors and outdoors. You will be able to enhance the beauty of your home or office with indoor accent lighting as well as provide a great outdoor atmosphere with LED accent lights designed specifically for gardens, yards, and other environments. Place indoor accent lighting low on walls to highlight a hallway, up high to light a wall hanging to create an elegant atmosphere in a dining room or office. LED accent lights on the underside of cabinets add illumination to the kitchen. An added benefit of LEDs, of course, is that they do not put out much heat. So, when it comes to low-temperature accent lighting, LED lights work well.

Part A: Energy Saving Lamps

The compact fluorescent bulb consists of a high performance electronic ballast and a trichromatic fluorescent lamp. The whole unit is compact and simple in construction and highly effective in light emitting, with soft light, excellent chromaticness and low heat-emission. Moreover, it can be instantly started even at a comparatively low temperature or voltage.

Available for the following fixtures:

  • Table Lamps: Bulb, Candle, Mini Global, Mini U Style, Spiral and Column, Mini Flower.
  • Floor Lamps: Bulb, Candle, Global, U Style, Spiral and Column, Circle, Mini Flower.
  • Pendants: Bulb, Candle, Mini Global, Mini U Style, Spiral, Mini Flower.

PART B: LED Lights

The LED light series provide good light distribution, soft and flattering, yet bright enough for applying writing, reading and so on. The LED lighting application is very popular.

Before you buy the lights for the right application, please think about the factors:

  • Select the proper power which will fit in your room or space.
  • Select the right shape and size which will fit in your light fixture.
  • Select the proper color or color temperature in between the 2700K and 6400K labeled packages.
  • Select the right base for your fixture.
  • Select ENERGY STAR® lights for reliability.

Do not use CFLs in recessed and enclosed fixtures

Recessed light fixtures and fixtures that are completely enclosed (no air flow) are more likely to cause early failure for most CFLs. The additional heat generated by the compact fluorescent bulb in the enclosed fixture is too much for the ballast that is integrated into the base of the bulb. Although the CFL will operate in these fixtures, the life of the bulb will be shortened substantially from its rated life.
