Light Up the Walls with Light Strips

  • 1.1Make a plan for where the light strips should go and measure the space to figure out how many strips are needed. Keep note of the distance to the outlet.
  • 1.2Stick the light strips to the wall by removing the tape covering on the back. Get better adhesion by working in 12" sections, pressing each section to the wall for about 10 seconds before moving on to the next one.
  • 1.3Plug the light strips in and admire your work!

Pro Tip

Limit your light strip length to 32' per power source and simply cut any strips that are too long. Make sure the strips are unplugged first and cut along the marked areas.

Illuminate the Furniture

  • 2.1Create a super cool look by using the light strips around the edges of the furniture. To adhere the strips to the furniture, just pull back the tape covering and stick them directly on the piece.
