As we head into winter the days start to get shorter. Studies have shown that the reduced hours of sunlight can dampen moods and may even lead to depression for some people. Lighting can influence your mood whether you are at home or at work. Good lighting leads to higher productivity, greater creativity and less exhaustion. LED lights can offer a variety of options for fun and innovative lighting solutions to help brighten your mood. Below are some simple projects that can help to transform your home and help to boost your spirits as well. Install some crown molding around your living room or bedroom. Leave a gap between the top of the molding and the ceiling and run rope lights or strip lights inside of the tray to create a lovely glow around your room. Choose white for a traditional feel or a color to match your decor. You could also try RGB Color Changing Strip Light so that you can choose a variety of colors depending on your mood or the season (i.e. red or green for Christmas, pink for Valentines day, white for a classic look, or even choose a color changing pattern for a festive look for New Years or birthdays, etc.) With the holidays come long hours spent in the kitchen baking holiday goodies and delicious meals. Give your kitchen a simple face lift with some under cabinet or above cabinet lighting. Strip lights, rigid bars, or ruler lights are all great solutions for this project. It is simple to install any of these options and the results will make your kitchen feel like a totally new room. Whatever project you have in mind look to LED for energy efficient and versatile lighting solutions. For more project ideas follow us on Pinterest.
