LED strip lighting can give you extra light in places that you need it without using a lamp or overhead lighting. Below are four different ways you can use this lighting in your home.

Use Them Inside Cabinets

If you have cabinets in your home that you often use, you may find them dark inside, which makes it difficult to find the items you need. Even if you have a bright overhead light, the light cannot move directly inside the cabinet.  Install LED light strips inside the cabinets. You could place a strip far back inside the cabinet, or install it in the front. If you have large cabinets and need a lot of light, install more than one LED strip light.

Use Them On Bookshelves

If you are an avid reader and have a large bookshelf in your home, you may find you want to read at night. If so, it can be difficult finding the book you want without turning on the overhead light, which could wake your family at night. This lighting can also serve another purpose. It can keep insects away that love to feast on books, such as cockroaches. This is because many insects like to hide away in dark areas during the day, and come out at night to feast. If the area is lit up, it may deter them.

Use Them On Your Patio

If you enjoy sitting on your patio at night or entertaining guests there, you may not want a bright light so you can see. Instead, install LED strip lighting to give you light. You can place the strip lighting along rails, around the perimeter of the patio, under table edges, and more. This way you can entertain at night and be able to see the drinks that you are serving your guests, or it will make things more relaxing for your family sitting in more subdued lighting.

Use Them in A Study Area

If you have a study area that is in an obscure area of your home, it may be difficult to get enough light in this area. If you do not want to use bulk lighting, such as lamps, use LED strip lighting instead. This will also keep the desk area much more organized, as there is more desk space without a lamp.  Make sure you install LED strip lighting that is bright enough for an area like this. When you purchase them, ask the employee to show you the different brightness levels.

If you decide to install LED strip lighting in your home, hire an electrical services company to install the lighting for you.
