With LEDs consuming up to 30 per cent less energy than fluorescent bulbs, it's no wonder we're now seeing them in all sorts of places – from TV screens and home applications to wallpapers and streetlights. Curious how they could benefit you? Here are 4 of the best uses for LEDs at home.
Light up the backyard
Whether you're hosting a backyard bash or planning a camping weekend, these flexible strip lights are a great solution.

Brighten under the bed
