Shine efficiently: Our guide to choosing energy efficient lighting designs
Energy efficient lighting has slowly become the norm in recent years, with many homeowners wanting to make more conscious decisions about how to play their part in the UK’s ‘green industrial revolution’.
Thankfully, there have been some vast improvements made in product performance in recent years, making low-energy lighting pieces the mainstream option to choose from. At the Luxury Lighting Boutique, we’ve put together a short guide on how to choose the most energy efficient luxury lighting pieces for different parts of your home, all of which can be sourced through ourselves or directly purchased through our website.
LED acrylic lighting
Whilst only using 2 watts of power, an LED acrylic light can produce up to 40 watts of brightness!
Neon lights have always been popular in interior designs. Restaurants, bars and shops have found that they infuse extravagance into their space. This nostalgic Eichholtz logo will instantly add a halo of light and charm to your home or business! Comprising energy-efficient LED acrylic, it has the look and feel of a traditional neon sign.
LED table lamps
In addition to being incredibly powerful in relation to the amount of power they require, LED lights are the perfect energy-saving option for desks and bedside tables due to the fact that LED lights last longer than any other traditional lights.
For example, a 50,000 hours rated LED can last,
- 50 times longer than a typical Incandescent bulb
- 20 to 25 times longer than a typical Halogen bulb
- 8 to 10 times longer than a typical compact fluorescent lamp
So, if you use an LED Desk lamp 10 hours a day, it will last more than 13 years, and if you use 8 hours a day, it will last more than 17 years!
Want some inspiration? This modern LED table lamp by Masiero has a painted metal frame and is available in a range of finishes, including burnished brass, as seen in the picture above. It’s the perfect addition to any table or corner of the room that needs a bit of a brightening boost!
Wall-mounted LED lighting
LED wall-mounted lights can also withstand extreme temperatures, making them an excellent choice for both indoor and outdoor wall lighting. In regards to lighting performance, or light distribution, LED wall-mounted lights utilise a multi-point design that provides evenly distributed light across the surface it is mounted on.

One of the main drawbacks some people find with luxury light systems is the prohibitive replacement cost of new bulbs, cleaning, and other required maintenance. However, LED technology takes away this worry, because chandeliers based on LED technology have a lifespan close to twenty times that of conventional lighting systems. This gives them a cutting edge in terms of maintenance and replacement costs because of their sturdiness!
