One of the newest trends in home design is the use of LED tape lighting. There are a number of different applications, both indoor and out, where you can use it to create a beautiful home. It will bring a warm ambiance to your home and really make it shine.
Light the Way
Avoid the jarring glare of the overhead light that accompanies a trip down the stairs. Instead, apply tape lighting underneath the upper edges of each stair for a warm, glow. The subtle illumination will keep you from taking a tumble in the middle of the night. If you want to keep everything looking clean, you can conceal the it with extrusions.
Let There be Light
Your home may have some places that are perpetually dark, like under the kitchen cabinets or in ceiling coves. While you aren’t able to brighten up these dark areas with traditional lighting, you can illuminate them with perfectly placed tape lighting. High-output LED tape lights work great as an accent as well as overhead or wherever you need it.
Put it on Display
When you have items to put on display, tape lighting is a great way to do it. By applying some lighting under your display shelves, or in your display cabinets, you can transform your items into an eye-catching feature. The lights use little energy so you don’t have to worry about them getting too hot and becoming a hazard if you place them inside of your display cabinet.
Create an Outline
Providing backlighting with LED tape lights is a great way to add some fun to your home decor. You can use the lights behind mirrors to create a halo effect, or place them around the television to help reduce eyestrain. With the subtle lighting that you can create by using the tape light behind your household objects, you’ll enhance your home’s decor with beautiful, subtle illumination.
Create a warm glow throughout your house by placing tape lights underneath furniture. By placing lights under kitchen countertops, the bathroom vanity, or even your bed frame, you can create a modern silhouette and make a contemporary statement throughout your home.
Brighten Your Path
A great way to shine a light on your path and avoid trip hazards is to place light tape along the toe kick on your floor. The softer light that is produced will let you see everything in front of you without you having to turn on the overhead lights. You simply have to install the tape light to the edge of the toe kick to have a well lit path no matter the time of day or night.
Take it Outside
Use LED tape lights around your patio and throughout your garden and enjoy the area in the evening with your family and friends. With the soft light that they produce, you can enjoy the long summer nights without having to rely on the harsh glare from the patio light, but rather relax with the soft ambient lighting from the light tape.
