How the latest LED technology is making your home lighting more adaptable

For most of us, the bedroom is more than a slumber chamber its an expression of self. The living room? A projection of our personalities, our tastes, our life experiences where we welcome loved ones and complete strangers to dwell with us as well as a bit of humble bragging. We dont just decorate them. We engineer them.

Yet, despite all this care, we tend to neglect the light that illuminates all of this meticulous work and sets the tone for our daily lives. Its not that we dont care about light (we wouldnt have social photo filters such as 1977 and Noir if we didnt), but we think of it as a constant that we buy once and live with indefinitely, like a tattoo, or a parakeet. The main reason we finally get around to changing our bulbs? When they go out, according to market research by Philips Lighting.

To make your favorite rooms really shine, upgrade to a Philips SceneSwitch LED bulb to boost your room today. This bulb has three colors that allow users to switch between functional soft white light, energizing daylight and a cozy warm glow.

And unlike other adjustable lights that require a tedious dimmer switch (and an undue bout of shock therapy upon installation), the Philips SceneSwitch LED bulb simply screws into your existing light fixture no extra guest work required.

In the bedroom

Youre looking to retreat to a sanctuary, not trigger awful memories of the buzzing overhead lights at the DMV. If youre sharing the room, theres a good chance you and your partner may disagree over the lights: One in five couples surveyed by Philips Lighting said they disagree with their partner over the color of the lights, and one in three cited quarrels over the dimmer switch.

Quit throwing shade and purchase a Philips SceneSwitch LED bulb. Flip the switch once for a functional 800 lumen soft white light for times when you want just enough light, like watching TV or reading in bed.

When its time to get cozy and count sheep, flip the switch again for a warm 80 lumen glow, which is dim enough to cancel out the blue light from your smartphone and lull you into restful sleep before you know it.

For the living room

Youll want a dependable light that matches the mood of the space, whether youre trying to stay focused while working from home or entertaining into the wee hours of the morning. And, because the living room happens at the speed of life, your lights should be ready at a moments notice, rather than hemming and hawing about when theyd prefer to heat up.

From the lounge chair to the loveseat, Philips SceneSwitch LED has you covered. When youre doing your taxes on the coffee table, flip the switch once for energizing daylight, which casts a clean white light over your space to keep you focused. Flip again to return to a softer, functional white light for the waning hours of a family gathering.

Your bedroom and living room are crying for the flexible lighting options thatll make them truly picturesque (and less reliant on liberal filter usage), so treat them to a glowing makeover with Philips SceneSwitch LED theres no reason to stay in the dark about the right light.
