Of LED Lights and Men

So I have the LED lights and they are often too bright. I found a good solution. These are battery powered movement sensored lights. I put one in the head to make sure I'm aiming the right direction, another above the stove on the inside of the door, and one above the dining table. Open the doors and the lights comes on. They shut off after 30" if no movement. Three to a package. Work great.

I thought they were a bit bright too (and very white), so I picked up some yellow vellum, folded it, and placed it inside the lamp housings in the dinette area and above the wardrobe. Due to the LEDs running very cool, nothing has melted. Now they throw nice, warm yellow light.

I left the kitchen lights as they were -- bright white LEDs are great for task lighting.

Yes, I did a similar installation with gel film (or whatever it's called) but only in the dining area. This pic shows the difference...

That's an interesting solution. Many here probably know, but some may not, that when replacing LED's for closer to incandescent (warmer) go with a lower Kelvin like 3000K or less. The really sharp, bright white is up around 6000K+ and is too cool for most. We replaced all the bulbs in the trailer with a warm white and it makes a huge difference. I have found the warm white are more expensive because they are harder to make, but with the technology advancing rapidly this is probably less of an issue. This is a great site to find any replacement bulb you may need:
