The most efficient way to use battery power is to install as many DC lights and appliances as possible and run them directly off the battery bank. An inverter uses 5 to 15% of battery power just to make the conversion to AC.
DC LED bulbs are much cheaper than AC LED bulbs. I replaced all my incandescent bulbs with LED for a couple of bucks each.
