Incredibly easy to install, this range of cool LED lights can be used all around your home to really bring the place to life. A fun and simple weekend DIY, it’s time to get creative and impress your family and friends. While LEDs won’t work in every room, these strips can add discreet accents to spaces or be used to create more overt lighting displays that catch the eye. So no matter your preferences in décor, there’s a place for these handy strips in your home.
Illuminate Counters, Desks and Shelves
The beauty of these strip lights is that they’re easy to hide and can be effortlessly attached to surfaces with their adhesive backing. This means you can position them along kitchen cabinets to give your workspace a contemporary glow. Not only will you be able to see more clearly while chopping, but the LEDs will give your kitchen a showroom feel when guests come to visit.
Similarly, the strips can be used along shelves to highlight bookcases or ornaments. They look particularly impressive behind glass but can also add some extra light to workspaces if used along your desk.
Give Definition to Walls and Doors
The strips can be used to outline doorways or positioned along skirting boards to give your room a cool, modern feel. Popular with young people, these LED strips could give your teen’s room a touch of uniqueness and appease their need to redecorate. You could even frame their bed’s headboard with a strip of lights or illuminate dark drawers by running LEDs just above them. Pair them with coloured LEDs for a really vibrant touch, or stick to neutral white for a classier approach. If you’re keeping things simple, you could use some fairy lights around the room for a cohesive finish.
If your bathroom lacks natural light, some LED strips could make getting ready in the morning that extra bit easier. Perfect for placing around mirrors, you’ll be able to see your face much more clearly before you leave the house. Whether you’re applying makeup or shaving, you won’t need to worry about missing a single spot. Experiment with cooler and warmer colours to see what works best for you, just make sure your lights are splashproof when they’re going to be around water.
Highlight the Stairs
While they shouldn’t be used as your main source of light, these handy strips can add some extra definition to key areas in your home that need it. Whether that’s the stairs or the hallway, some strategically placed lights could help to reduce trips and falls. Stick the lights along the banister or by the floor for a functional and decorative touch.
Light Up Movie Night
Surrounding your TV cabinet with these LEDs can bring movie nights to a new level. When all the other lights are switched off, the viewing area will be surrounded by a halo of light. This will create a dramatic atmosphere and make seeing the popcorn much easier – it’s a win-win situation.
