Strip lights are a great way to add a touch of color and light to any setting. They’re typically very easy to use, with no installation required! Light strips have been used for accent lighting in homes, businesses, cars, and more. In this article, I’ll explore some ideas for LED strip lights that can be used indoors and outdoors.
LED strip lights are available in all colors of the rainbow, including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The strips can be combined to create exciting displays that change throughout the day. Since these are LED’s, they are energy efficient, so you won’t have to worry about substantial power bills at the end of each month.
LED Strip Light Ideas For Your Home, Business, Or Car
1. Mood Lighting/Accent Lighting
This is the most common use for LED strip lighting. Using strip lights throughout the home or office can give guests and occupants alike a warm and cozy feeling. Use them for cabinet lighting in your kitchen, bookcase lighting in your library, or even mood lighting in your bathroom. Strip lights are great because you can use them anywhere without being seen or noticed. You won’t have to worry about drilling into your cabinets to install a simple light, and the same goes for under-cabinet lighting. The strips can be stuck on top of any surface, with just a little bit of double-sided tape, allowing for easy lighting no matter what the situation.
2. Car Accent Lighting
Adding LED strip lights to your car is a great way to highlight specific features. If you’re into modifying your engine, you might want to install some color-changing lights that will bring attention to your rims or engine block. LED headlights are becoming more popular, but these can be pretty expensive when it comes time to replace them. Installing LED strips in your headlights can give them a unique look while being cheaper than replacement headlights. If you don’t have any exterior modifications to your car, adding accent lighting along the bottom or sides can give it an entirely new look! You could also use the rear area of your vehicle to draw attention to either the rims or the exhaust.
3. Under Carriage Lighting
If you have a lowered car or sits close to the ground, then LED strip lighting can allow for easier nighttime driving! All too often, drivers travel down dark roads without any form of illumination, making it incredibly hard to see potholes in the street or bumps along the shoulder. Adding accent lighting in these areas will help you avoid costly damage caused by hitting obstacles at high speeds. The strips are also perfect for use on dirt bikes and ATVs since they can be easily mounted onto handlebars or underneath vehicle’s where headlights would typically go
The possibilities are endless with under car LED strip lighting!
You can find these lights online or at auto parts stores or can order from led light manufacturers for between 30 and 40 bucks. As you can see they’re not too expensive to add around your home, office or car. They also last a long time, so if you stick them on the walls of your garage, they’ll be nice and bright for years to come.
