LED lights have become increasingly more popular in comparison with regular light bulbs, mainly due to the fact that their price has dropped significantly; they last as long as regular incandescent lights and use far less electricity than the regular light bulb.
You can now buy a LED bulb for under 10 dollars, but if you want to take your home’s ambience to the next level and experience something totally out of this world, you’ll have to pay a bit more.
If you want to save energy, enjoy a customized ambience and set the lights according to your mood, you need something a bit different than the run-in-the-mill regular light bulb.
