creative ways to use strip lighting in home decor cover

Strip lighting is a cool way to add additional light to your space without integrating too many lamps or chandeliers, and to give a contemporary feel to the interior. You can use strip lighting just about anywhere, thanks to the flexible LED strips that come on rolls, and there are lots of different colors to try. Here are some ideas to accent your home with strip lighting and add function to it.

Stairs

Putting strip lighting around stairs is as stylish as it is functional. You may integrate strip lighting into the steps, between the steps, under each step, along the staircase or even into the railing. This way you won’t need to turn on any light in the evening to use the stairs and you can accent your super cool staircase with lights – it’s especially amazing with a floating staircase. If you want a more creative, artistic space, you might consider doing the same style with colored strip lights. Don’t forget that it works for outdoors, too, and if you have steps there – feel free to highlight them!

Cabinets And Shelves

Place your strip lighting hidden under the cabinets in the kitchen, home office and bathroom, they will create a cozy ambience and give an edge to the space at the same time. Put strip lighting into wardrobes and closets to see what’s inside even if there’s little light and to accent your clothes and shoes. Such an idea will make finding what you need much easier.

Another use that’s as functional as it is stylish is to place it within display shelving –you’ll easily highlight what’s on the shelf. You may attract attention to this zone or go for some open shelves over the desk to add some light to the working space.
