LED lights can be a discreet yet stylish way to light up the room and enhance your décor. If you are carrying out a project and want that extra finishing touch in a room, LED tape lights could be your solution.

LED tape lights have multiple purposes and tend to be more flexible than traditional lighting styles. They are ideal for illuminating curves, rounded surfaces and much more.

Are you looking for a versatile solution to piece together your room design idea? Keep reading for six ideas on how to use these handy light strips.



Open riser stairs are the perfect opportunity to create a cool and modern look with LED tape lights- not to mention a functional and practical space. The gaps between the stairs can be dangerous at night time, but with a subtle light from your LED tape lights, you can take a trip to the kitchen for a midnight snack without a worry.


Ever longed for one of those vanity mirrors in Hollywood classic movies, surrounded by light bulbs? LED tape lights can recreate this look but with a subtler effect. This also means you have more mirror space instead of taking room up with bulbs, which can look clunky and oversized.

Under Beds and Sofas

Placing your LED tape lights under your bed, sofa, or in fact any chair can create an expensive look without the price tag attached. It produces a ‘cool’ ambience, plus you’ll never lose your phone, keys, remote, or anything else under the sofa again!


The great thing about LED tape lights for a nightlight is that you can practically create any shape and design you want. Check out this DIY batman lamp if you fancy having a go yourself or making this a part of your next project. You could do the same with picture frames and canvases!


Shelves are great for all kinds of storage solutions- from books to ornamental trinkets. Add some lights and you’ve just stepped up your display game. The great thing about adding LED tape lighting to your shelves is that you can use colour changing LED strips and mix it up, turning your box shelves into a colour coded show!

Under Cabinets and Counters

Adding lighting under your cabinets is extremely functional for all kinds of food prep, cleaning and more, but it is also a very slick and chic way to add a touch of modern sophistication to your kitchen. If you have a bar area in your dining room or kitchen, why not add them under there too?
