Before You Start
Combine lighting and decor with the latest innovations in light bulbs. Let your imagination run wild by combining the lighting techniques below and playing with the light colours and intensities.

Install Light Strips on the Walls

  • 1.1Decide where you want the light strips to go, then measure the area to find out how many strips you’ll need. Keep in mind the distance to your outlet.
  • 1.2Remove the piece covering the tape on the back of the lights and stick them on the wall. For better adhesion, work in 12” sections, pressing and holding the section in place for 10 seconds before moving to the next section.
  • 1.3Plug them in and the job is done!

Pro Tip

Connect a maximum of 32’ worth of light strips per power source. If the strips turn out to be too long, you can cut them. Just make sure they’re unplugged first, then cut along the designated area.

Light Up Your Furniture

  • 2.1Placing lights around the edges of a piece of furniture can create a super cool look. Once you’ve picked out the piece of furniture, pull back the piece covering the tape and place them directly on it.
