LED Floor Tiles

Here is a great bathroom idea! Standard LEDs have a life of 100,000 hours so these should have no problem lasting till the next renovation.

“Ceramic tile installations are meant to last a long time- We hope that LED’s live as long as their reputation or this bathroom is going to look pretty silly in a couple of years. The idea of marking steps and edges with LED’s is interesting; they could be a great safety feature. Steuler Tile of Germany has introduced a line of ceramics featuring LED’s, primarily for decorative purposes. Available as single LED inserts or continuous strips. We look forward to LED’s becoming part of the fabric of our buildings- when a light source is cool and long-lasting, why not build it into corners, stairs and doorknobs?”
