Before You Start
Lighting can be an important part of your overall room decor. Make use of various light bulb innovations by combining multiple lighting techniques, such as using lights of different colours and intensities. Have fun and let your imagination roam!
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!
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
If the strips around your furniture are facing the wall and slightly dimmed, pull the piece of furniture out a bit to allow for more visibility.
Replace the Light Bulbs in Your Lamps
Soft and warm colours can help create a relaxing atmosphere, while bright colours are a better choice for a lively and festive vibe.
