Light emitting diode can have a life expectancy of 100000 hours while FLs can last only from 8000 to 20000 hours. Imagining just the difference can really make your mind to choose the LED.
You wont need to change bulb with LED fixtures unlike the FLs and the incandescent lamps. This is because LEDS do not burn out like fluorescent lights do not have fragile parts and have larger operating temperature range so you can even use them on very hot to very cold climate without the worry of burn outs. It can only burn if improper voltage is applied directly to their terminals.
For example a halogen bulb should always be housed in an enclosed lighting fixture to avoid the dangerous consequences of a burst halogen bulb. The fixture has to be evaluated on various other parameters like what type of task it is chosen for what is the kind of light distribution can be expected from it(given its shades shape color etc.) how does it effect the efficiency of the bulb and what kind of color distribution does it render. Hence choosing a lighting fixture purely on aesthetic criteria is not a judicious decision.
FLs and incandescent lamps can break easily so you have to take absolute care in installing and cleaning them. LED lights fixtures do not use glass no filaments no vacuum seals and dont have gases or chemicals like the FLs. They are purely made of Solid State Light construction which eliminates moving or breakable parts.
