The right lighting color can change how you complete an activity, decorate your room, or let your mind unwind at the end of the day. But you’re not about to buy a light bulb for every color in the rainbow. That’s where color changing LED lights come into play. Energy-efficient and versatile, color changing LEDs are the key to a whole new universe. Read on to discover the 12 best color-changing lights for your room.
How to choose a color-changing light
Let’s say you know you want to purchase a color-changing light to enhance your space, but you aren’t sure which fixture is right. Below are three questions you should ask yourself before you buy a color-changing light.
- Where will you put the light in your room? Where your new color-changing LED light will “live” can influence your buying decision. Maybe there’s a dark corner in your living room that you’d like to dedicate to a reading nook, or you want to fill your room with calming blue light to relax at the end of a busy day. From color-changing bulbs in your lamps to night lights and LED strips, the possibilities are endless in every part of your room.
- How do you want to control the lights? You can control color-changing lights in a few ways, mainly through accompanying apps or a remote that comes with your fixture. Each performs the same functions, but you may find some more advanced features with an app.
- What are the best LED light colors for your needs? Some LED fixtures can change between a few colors, while others can be set to quite literally any color under the sun. If you only want to change between a handful of colors, that’ll open up your options for LED fixtures, as these models are more common. However, if you want a buffet of options and choices, be on the lookout for a model that supports this wide array of colors.
