Lighting is an important piece of the home decor puzzle and LED lighting is both efficient and eco-friendly. Keep reading and find out what you can do in a weekend to improve your home.

1. Home Theater Lighting

Your living room is a place for entertaining some friends and family for a night of TV and movies. If you want to make your TV room feel more like a home theatre, a set of RGB strip lights will do the trick.

Place the strip lights in the corners of the room and behind the TV to give your room a real theatre vibe with ambient light. You can even backlight the TV to draw the viewer’s eye even more.

2. Better Kitchen Visibility

Putting a strip of cool LED lights underneath your kitchen cabinets is a great idea if you’re looking for more visibility. Being able to see while you’re chopping, measuring, and cooking makes your life as a chef a whole lot easier and safer.

If you’ve got a white kitchen, LED lights will reflect off of the tile and appliances to brighten the room massively. No home cook should struggle to see in their own kitchen.

3. Kids Bedroom Fun

Your child’s bedroom is their little sanctuary, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help them create the perfect atmosphere. LED lighting fixtures can turn a drab room into an imaginative space that they’ll love spending time in.

Kids love colourful things, whether it’s the paint on the walls or the sheets on their beds. Coloured LED lights will take their room to a different level of fun and colour.

4. Backlighting Wall Art

Placing a set of LED strip lights behind your art and photographs will create interesting visual effects that give them more depth. When you have artwork that you love, you want to draw your visitors’ eyes towards it.

Because LED lights don’t emit heat, there’s no danger to your artwork. You can attach the strips directly to the frame or canvas for a striking visual.

5. Outdoor Spaces

If you enjoy spending time in your backyard, you can illuminate planters, walkways, and steps. Not only will this provide you with an extra level of safety at night, but it’ll also give your backyard a classier vibe.
