Why LED?

Low energy consumption

Travel with peace of mind. With LED lighting fixtures, you don’t need to worry about the electricity consumption of your lighting. Consuming about 80% less electricity than other types of lighting for the same amount of light, LED lighting can be powered by a solar panel or directly by the vehicle battery. You can then enjoy quality lighting in your vehicle without worrying about your battery running out when it’s time to get back on the road!

Ambient lighting

Another interesting feature of LED is the selection of colors and white. Depending on your mood, create the perfect atmosphere with the help of lighting! In other words, you have the ability to select the color and adjust the intensity of your lighting to customize the ambiance of your camper van.

In fact, you can select the color and adjust the intensity of your lighting to personalize the ambiance of your vehicle. You can also adjust the color temperature to create a warm and relaxing atmosphere with a warm white or an energizing atmosphere with a cool white!

These rooms have a very colorful look and feel like they are coming straight from the future. Are we witnessing the creation of a new design style?

The lighting of the gaming room is of crucial importance, because it is this element that gives it all its colors and its dynamism! Indeed, as the trend dictates, the video game room decoration must be colorful, illuminated and delirious. The type of lighting that perfectly fulfills these functions is undoubtedly LED lighting. In fact, part of the reason this type of room is so popular is because of the advent of LED lighting!

Smart lighting, perfect for customizing your decor

First of all, a large number of LED products offer color selection (RGB) as well as color temperature selection (CCT). You can even change the color of your fixtures to create the atmosphere that best suits your mood! In addition, many LED products also offer connectivity between devices. Called smart lighting, the benefit of this feature is to add more customization to your room. For the most immersive gaming experience, choose a mood that adapts to your visual and audio experience. For example, the lighting near your monitor could automatically change based on the colors displayed in your game and other lighting fixtures could flicker with the beat of the music.

The importance of indirect lighting

Secondly, indirect lighting is a technique that is very popular in video game room design, as it is an original and aesthetic way to light the most unusual places. Indirect lighting contributes greatly to the futuristic feel we seek to give a gaming room. This technique consists in indirectly lighting a space by projecting a light flux very closely on the wall, the ceiling, the floor or on an object. The reflection of the light on the surface then creates a discreet lighting that will give an interesting character to your room. LED ribbon is the easiest product to create indirect lighting with, as it can be easily installed in any place. What we are used to seeing are LED ribbons stuck to the desk, behind the monitors and on the ceiling! It is possible to highlight almost anything with indirect lighting. Paintings, furniture and shelves are just a few ideas! Use your creativity!

Several smart LED lights can also be added to your decoration to make the space brighter! Finally, recessed spotlights could also be added if you find that your room needs more utility lighting!

In fact, LED strips can be used to light up just about anything. The only limit is your creativity! Here are 10 original ways to use them to inspire you!

1. The Closet

The wardrobe or walk-in closet is usually an area of the house with very little light due to its isolation from natural light. Being mostly in a windowless space, the use of artificial light sources is the solution of choice for lighting your clothes. The flexibility of LED strips is advantageous for this, as it allows you to illuminate the most difficult areas. Using rods with a built-in molding for an LED strip will allow you to illuminate the room in addition to your hanging clothes. These can also be used for shelves, in drawers, or even on the ceiling to make sure you light every nook and cranny!

2. The staircase

Never before has it been so easy to highlight the staircase with LED strips. Like closets, natural light sometimes has a hard time getting to the stairs. That being said, it is important to have a well-lit staircase to ensure the safety of the individuals using it. LED strips are ideal for this purpose, as they can easily be installed on handrails and underneath steps to create an indirect lighting effect. This is a good solution to make your staircase both safe and beautiful.

Do you have a RV or a minivan that you have converted into a motor home? On rainy days, travelers have to lock themselves in the car to spend the evening or part of the day.
