LED strip light kits are a versatile and cost-effective lighting solution that can be used throughout the home to enhance the look and functionality of your living space. Whether you are looking to add a warm glow to your furniture, highlight architectural features, or to create a unique lighting effect, LED strip light kits can help you achieve the right ambiance in your home. Here, we will explore the benefits of LED strip light kits, including their energy efficiency, design flexibility, and how simple they are to install. We will also discuss the different ways in which LED strip light kits can be used, providing inspiration and ideas for incorporating these versatile lighting solutions into your home décor. Let’s get started.
What are the benefits of LEDs?
LEDs (which stands for light-emitting diodes, in case you weren’t sure!) offer several benefits over traditional lighting solutions, making them a popular choice in both residential and commercial applications. Some of the key benefits of using LEDs include:
- LEDs are highly energy-efficient, and use up to 80% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. This means that using LEDs can lead to significant savings on your electricity bill, as well as reducing your carbon footprint.
- LEDs have a much longer lifespan than traditional bulbs, with some LEDs lasting up to 25,000 hours or more. This means you won’t have the hassle of changing bulbs so often, saving you time and money on buying new bulbs.
- LEDs are more durable than traditional bulbs, and are much less likely to break or shatter. This makes them a safer and more reliable lighting solution, especially in high-traffic or outdoor areas.
- LEDs are used in most types of lighting today, including different colours, shapes, and sizes. They are incredibly versatile, and can be used in a variety of settings, from accent lighting to task lighting.
- LEDs turn on to full brightness instantly, without any warm-up time, making them a convenient and responsive lighting solution. This is especially important for task lighting, where you need immediate illumination.
By choosing LEDs, you can enjoy all these benefits while also creating beautiful and functional lighting that perfectly suits your home.
Why use an LED strip light kit as part of my décor?
In addition to the benefits that LEDs offer, LED strip light kits can be a great addition to your home décor, enhancing the look and functionality of your living space. One of the biggest advantages of LED strip light kits is their flexibility, since they are so easily added to light up a variety of areas and surfaces.
For example, LED strip light kits can be used to add a warm glow to furniture such as kitchen cupboards, bookcases, or display cabinets, creating a subtle and inviting atmosphere. Or you might think about using them to light up the interior of walk-in cupboards, making it easier to find what you’re looking for.
Because LED strip light kits are incredibly energy efficient, you can add as many as you like, and you won’t see huge increases on your energy bill. And because they also have a longer lifespan than traditional bulbs, you won’t need to change them very often either.
LED strip light kits can be customised to your exact needs. Many kits allow you to choose from a range of colours and brightness levels to create the best lighting for your needs. They are easy to install, and require no special wiring or electrical work, so you can put them in place without the need for a qualified electrician.
If you’re looking for a versatile and cost-effective lighting solution that can enhance the look and functionality of your living space, LED strip light kits should be on your list to consider.
Which rooms in the home can I use an LED strip light kit?
LED strip light kits can be used throughout the home, thanks to their versatility and flexibility. A few popular examples of rooms where LED strip light kits can be used:
- Living Room: LED strip light kits can be used in the living room to add a warm glow, especially as accent lighting – such as behind the TV – or to highlight specific design features such as wall art or bookshelves.
- Bedroom: LED strip light kits can be used in the bedroom for a relaxing and soothing atmosphere, with dimmable options for bedtime or reading lights. Because they’re low energy and customisable, they are great for adding low-level lighting in bedrooms where a nightlight would otherwise be required.
- Kitchen: LED strip light kits can be used in the kitchen to provide task lighting, especially under cabinets or shelves, making food preparation and cooking easier.
- Bathroom: LED strip light kits can be used in the bathroom to provide subtle accent lighting, or as functional lighting, such as along the mirror. Check the IP rating before you install – you’ll need at least IP44 for your lights to be waterproof.
- Home office: Similar to living rooms, LED strip light kits can be used in the home office to provide accent lighting, such as under book shelves, or behind PC monitors to enhance productivity.
LED strip light kits can be used in any room in the home, providing functional and decorative lighting solutions that can be customised to your specific needs and preferences.
What style of interior décor do LED strip light kits work with?
LED strip light kits are a versatile lighting solution that can work with a variety of interior décor styles – and as we’ve just seen, they can be used almost anywhere in the home. Some of the styles that LED strip lights look great with include:
- Modern: LED strip light kits can be used in modern interior décor styles to create a sleek and futuristic look.
- Contemporary: LED strip light kits can be used in contemporary interior décor styles to bring warmth and texture to the space.
- Minimalist: LED strip light kits can be used in minimalist interior décor styles to provide subtle accent lighting, keeping spaces clear of clutter.
- Bohemian: LED strip light kits can be used in bohemian interior décor styles for a touch of warmth and colour to the space.
Whichever interior décor style you prefer in your home, LED strip lights can help to provide versatile, energy-efficient, and customisable lighting for the perfect ambiance for any occasion.
Will LED strip lights blend in with my décor?
The strips on LED strip light kits are typically white or black, depending on the manufacturer, and the specific product. White strips are more common, as they are designed to blend in with the surrounding décor and provide a clean, minimalist look.
The white strips are typically made of a flexible material, such as polyurethane or silicone, that allows them to be bent and shaped to fit any surface or design. They are often waterproof or water-resistant, and these styles are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use – perfect in garages, sheds, and summer houses.
In addition to the white strips, some LED strip light kits are also available with black strips. The black strips are designed to be more discreet, blending in with dark surfaces, or if you prefer, to provide a contrast to light surfaces.
What colour lights are LED strip light kits available in?
LED strip light kits are available in a range of colours, allowing you to choose a lighting solution that perfectly complements your décor style and enhances the ambiance of your living space. Here are some examples of the colours that LED strip light kits are commonly available in:
- Warm White: Warm white LED strip light kits are a popular choice for creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. They have a yellowish glow that is similar to traditional incandescent bulbs, making them a great option for living rooms, bedrooms, and other areas where you want to create a cosy and comfortable environment.
- Cool White: Cool white LED strip light kits have a bluish tint that creates a bright and modern look. They are a great option for task lighting, such as in kitchens or home offices, where you need to see clearly.
- RGB: RGB (red, green, blue) LED strip light kits allow you to choose from a range of colours, creating a fun and dynamic lighting solution. You can set the lights to change colour automatically or manually, allowing you to create a variety of lighting effects.
- Monochrome: Monochrome LED strip light kits come in a range of colours, such as blue, green, or red. They are a great option for creating a specific mood or ambiance, such as a relaxing blue light in a bathroom or a vibrant red light in a home theatre.
Although there are some styles that are just one single colour, there are an increasing number that allow you to have complete control over the colour of the lights, and to change from cool white to warm white, to different colours as you prefer.
How can you control LED strip light kits?
Depending on the particular model, there are several ways to adjust the colour and brightness of LED strip lights, including manufacturer provided remote controls, and mobile apps.
Some LED strip light kits in our range have a remote control that allows you to change the colour and brightness with the touch of a button. These remote controls typically have several preset colours and brightness levels, as well as being able to change it to the perfect levels you want.
Increasingly, LED strip light kits connect to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and are controlled with a mobile app. These apps allow you to adjust the colour and brightness of the lights, as well as creating custom lighting scenes and schedules. With a mobile app, you can easily control your LED strip lights from your smartphone or tablet.
In addition to remote controls and mobile apps, some LED strip light kits are designed to be compatible with smart home systems, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home. This allows you to control your LED strip lights with voice commands, making it even easier to create the perfect lighting for your living space.
Are there alternatives to LED strip light kits?
While LED strip light kits are a versatile and popular lighting solution, there are several alternatives that you can consider depending on your needs and preferences. A few examples include:

- String lights or festoon lights are another alternative to LED strip light kits, and they are perfect for creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Some styles can be used as functional lighting, or simply to create a festive ambiance for parties and other special occasions.
- Rope lights are a flexible and easy-to-install lighting solution that can be used in a variety of settings, from staircases to outdoor spaces. They are perfect for highlighting specific features, such as trees in the garden, or staircases.
- Neon lights are a popular lighting solution for a modern and edgy look. They are typically a statement piece, and are often used to highlight specific design features, and come in a variety of colours and shapes.
How are LED strip light kits fitted?
LED strip light kits are generally easy to install and because the voltage is very low, do not require an electrician, as long as you follow the instructions carefully. There will be some differences between styles, but these are the basic steps for fitting LED strip light kits:
- Before installing your LED strip lights, make sure the surface is clean and dry to ensure a strong adhesive bond. Using a cleaning fluid to remove dirt or grease will ensure your LED strip lights continue to stay put.
- Measure the length of the surface where you want to install the LED strip light and cut the strip to the appropriate length. Most LED strip light kits have pre-marked cut lines to help you with this.
- Connect the LED strip to the power supply and controller, making sure to follow the instructions for your specific kit. Some kits may require you to solder the connections, while others may have connectors that simply snap together.
- Carefully peel the backing off the adhesive tape on the LED strip and stick it to the surface, making sure to press firmly to ensure a secure bond.
- Once the LED strip is installed, test it to make sure it is working properly.
LED strip light kits are generally easy to install, as long as you follow the instructions. With perfect preparation, and some basic tools, you can have your LED strip light kit installed in no time.
LED strip light kits offer a flexible and customisable lighting solution that can help you create the perfect ambiance for your living space.
