LED or mr16?
April 2, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Should I use LED down lights or stick to mr16s? I heard LEDs don't have nice color yet.

There are some "warm" LED lights that are also able to be dimmed. You might take a look at them and see if they are acceptable to you.

I've been using 3 Philips Ambient LED 12W bulbs for about 5 months now as the main source of light in the living room, and I like it.

There are LEDS that cover the entire heat spectrum (and can be changed to do so). Also RGB with controllers. Last longer use less electricity etc etc

LED are the wave of the future. We just installed a houseful of recessed lighting, all LED, all dimmable, all at 2875 Kelvin, warmest available light. Got them on last week...needed the dimmers! With zero bulb costs and really low energy consumption, we figure pay off in less than five years.

Is 2875 Kelvin the warmest available? So if you go less than 2875 kelvin you are getting closer to the look of incandescent. Is that correct?

Right now the have they look of halogens. Lower Kelvin are not available as far as I know. Not from recessed lighting.
