A light-emitting diode (LED) is an electronic light source that is up to 5 times more energy efficient than incandescent (9 Watt LED is equivalent in output to a 45 Watt incandescent) and they last up to 10 times as long as compact fluorescents (CFL). Berkeley Design Center carries LED Track, Recessed Ceiling and Under Cabinet lights from Nora Lighting.
Track lighting plays an important role in displaying art work or creating a certain ambiance. Track lighting can provide focused light, which is perfect for illuminating individual items such as art objects. Track lighting is especially suitable in areas with low ceilings, and can be available in low voltage.
Rail lighting provides an exciting and attractive alternative to conventional track lighting. It is extremely flexible and allows innovative and creative lighting solutions for both residential and commercial spaces. A single monorail, or a twin-rail (linear or curved) is most frequently used.
Specific lighting fixtures can be chosen to accent art, illuminate a task, or to create a mood. Proper lighting enhances the architectural ambience of a space and provides physical and psychological comfort. You can choose a light that provides a special expression for the appearance of a specific surface, or consider lighting to illuminate an entire area uniformly. Wall and ceiling lamps, as well as floor and table lamps, are available in an astonishing variety of shapes, materials and colors providing direct, indirect, diffused and reflected lights. Depending on the color and style chosen, glass shades can also add an element of interest to a room.
