    Accentuate coves with the right lights


    LED strip lights are one of the most trendy lighting fixtures that help add an accent to not only the living room but also the other rooms in the house. With the vast variety of available colour options, strip lights are the pioneers of effective colourful illumination. Their flexibility makes them a great choice for lighting up spaces like floor/ceiling coves, that bulbs or tube lights cannot. You can also layer the lighting in your lounging area with light strips that provide a variety of colour tones, switching from warm to cool tones or even kaleidoscopic hues - which would help find an attractive colour that would perfectly match the rest of your lighting fixtures.

    Bring life to the room with downlights


    Downlights are truly versatile. They work for high ceilings but also low ceilings, they brighten up smaller spaces while they also bring together all the elements in a larger room. The colour of these lights must always complement the colour palette of your living room. While dim warm yellow lighting makes the room cosy and comfortable, cool white lighting makes it the perfect wind-down yet balanced set-up. Philips Smart Wifi LED Downlights are a great option if you’re looking for downlights that can switch between warm to cool lighting with the right dimming.

    Add beauty to murals with picture lights


    A beautiful painting without adequate illumination is like a lock with a key. Ample lighting can help highlight parts of an art piece which adds a new perspective to the visual. Fixing picture lights over art pieces is the perfect way to do justice to the effort put into the canvas. Such modern lights add an artistic elegance that brings together aestheticism while its concentrated lighting takes care of the functionality. Be it any texture - oil, acrylic etc, with the help of picture lights there are no art pieces that cannot be brought to life!
