At LED Monkey, we're here to show you how you can turn dull and suffocating inside and outside spaces into buzzing and exciting areas. So, read on and discover Our LED Lighting Tips For a Sizzling Summer!

Cool White LED Lighting For Inside

Unlike halogen or incandescent lighting, LEDs possess the fantastic ability to produce several different colour temperatures. This comes in very handy when you want to set the mood in different rooms of your home.

To illustrate, we find that task-orientated rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom really benefit from bright and penetrative cool white light.

This is especially useful in the summer when everything and everywhere can feel a little hot and stuffy! Freshening up your active spaces with this bright lighting will give you that boost of energy to get you through the day.

Why not take a look on our website at our huge selection of cool white strip lighting?

Warm White LED Lighting For Outside

Whilst cool white lighting is ideal for those hot and muggy summer days inside, we love a warm white colour temperature outside.

The warm white colour temperature has a fantastic warm yellow/orange glow that makes us reminisce about sunsets and cosy nights in.

This is why it's so perfect for your garden! It creates the effect of being on holiday; allowing you to relax to your heart's content.

A large proportion of our outside lights are produced by premium lighting designer, Collingwood. Their lights come with the option of not only a 3000K warm white colour temperature, but even a (2700K) ULTRA warm white temperature.

Yes, with this drop in colour temperature, these lights can make your garden feel even more inviting and convivial to guests and provide the perfect glowing illumination for hosting your sizzling summer soirées.

Introduce Some Colour to your Garden
