Energy efficient luminaires illuminate wall light boxes and countertops in bathroom installation
West Caldwell, New Jersey - More than 52 million American households have viewed MaxLite's LED Lightbars, which were featured on a recent episode of "Bath Crashers" on the DIY Network, from the makers of HGTV. MaxLite® is a leading global manufacturer and marketer of MaxLED®, an award-winning line of innovative LED luminaires and lamps using state-of-the-art LED technology.
MaxLite's LED Lightbars, which are offered in the MaxLED® family of products, were highlighted in Episode 404 of "Bath Crashers," the "Basement Bathroom Overhaul." The episode was first aired on Oct. 31, 2011 and will be re-running through March. The LED Lightbars, which were highlighted with on-air credit, were installed discreetly in three handmade light boxes that were installed on the bathroom wall. Four lightbars were installed around the perimeter of each light box, creating unobtrusive light sources to add a nice glow to the panes of glass in the center of the boxes. In addition to the lightboxes, the LED Lightbars were installed under the countertop of the bathroom vanity, which made the glass surface glow above. The host proudly boasted the long-lasting 50,000-hour life of the energy efficient fixtures.
The original bathroom was dark and dreary and shown with outdated furnishings. After the bathroom's demolition and reconstruction, the homeowners were brought to tears of joy after witnessing the bathroom's stunning makeover. The new sink, shower, hardware and lighting yielded a clean, cool and modern look.
