You can use LED flexible strips along the ceiling to create a soft and diffuse light that fills the room. This can be especially nice if you have a high ceiling and want to create a more intimate atmosphere.

Use ceiling coves – not only can this be used to provide your room with the same mysterious drift look, but it can also be easily stylized to complement the current general lighting in your room.

In addition, you can also choose aluminum profiles as recesses to provide a primary way of positioning LEDs, allowing you to quickly hide strips of light from over-stimulation of the eyes, and use empty areas of the ceiling to create a mysterious look.

For convenience, you can also use the 3M tape on the back of the strip to attach the flexible LED strip to the edge of the ceiling.

One of the best ways to provide originality to your bedroom is to target rooms that are usually hidden from view. Closets offer a rare opportunity, or a difficult one, to add some real personality to your bedroom, with the advantage of being a truly useful light source. Depending on the shape and size of the cabinet space, you may often choose to place LED light strips on top or underneath the closet- why not try them in a box?

An often missed opportunity is to use the room inside the closet to find a bright spot when the room is dimly lit. The LED flex strips here provide practical lighting and add character and uniqueness to your bedroom, allowing the atmosphere to change as you use it.
