Light up your home the smart way
Home lighting doesn't have to be boring! If you get smart, it can open up a world of possibilities. Pairing your Philips Hue smart bulbs with the Hue app allows you to control the colour and brightness of your home – whether you want to transform your living room into a home cinema or a spa-like bathroom.
Here are a few of our top tips on how to add a splash of colour to your home, without getting the paintbrush out...
The living room is the heart of the home and lighting plays a crucial role. It's a space to entertain friends and a place to slump on the sofa and binge watch your favourite series after a long day. Smart bulbs open up an array of options when choosing the right brightness and shade for your room.
Hosting a cosy movie night? Well, the Philips Hue Starter Kit is for you. The kit includes the Philips Hue bridge to sync your smart speakers with your multi-colour bulbs – that way you can create your own epic scenes from the comfort of your own home! This adds more drama to what you’re viewing as the lights change with the soundtrack.
Your bedroom should be a place for you to unwind and relax. Are you using your bedroom lighting to achieve the ultimate cosy snug?
Use the Philips Hue white bulbs for your ceiling lighting to create a balanced brightness across the room − perfect for everyday tasks like finding what to wear.
You can then use multicolour bulbs to add subtle colours to your room. They work great with table and floor lamps to illuminate corners of the room with a soft glow. You could try a soft blue tone for a serene spa feel or a rich orange for a warm atmosphere.
Dinner parties are more than just good food. It's all about the atmosphere you create to entertain. With the multicolour bulbs, you can create an ambience that'll be hard to forget. Choose a pre-set warm glow or have a play around with the tone to find the perfect shade for you using the Philips Hue app.
Forget about revamping with new cabinets and splashback boards. Make a simple change to transform your kitchen into a modern space by adding smart bulbs.
Brightness is key to creating an ideal cooking space. You can achieve this when using the Philips Hue white bulbs for an equal projection of light across the room.
The kitchen is also a social hub of the home for entertaining. Dress the room with the multicolour bulbs. That way, you can create an inviting area for friends and family to gather.
Make sure that you give your bathroom the attention it deserves. Use Philips Hue white bulbs to avoid a harsh glare and instead, set yourself up for the day with a positive natural brightness. You can also dim the lights in the evening to create a serene atmosphere – perfect for when drawing a bath.
