5 Ways I Make My LED Strip Lights Look Better

LED lights are everywhere you go these days. Their popularity has increased over the years as LED lights emit brighter light more efficiently than standard lighting and come in various styles that allow you to be more creative with them.

If you love to entertain in your backyard or are looking to brighten up outdoor areas of your home, LED lighting can elevate how your home looks, meaning that entertaining and the overall appeal will bring your home to life.

If your home currently uses an LED strip lighting set-up, but it’s not giving you that ‘wow’ factor, then this article is for you. We’re going to look at five ways you can make your LED strip lighting look better so that your outdoor set-up can be the talk of the town.

How to Make My LED Strip Lights Look Better

Every home is different and therefore requires different lighting to bring it to life, and also, different households have different preferences of what they like. While there are many ways you can make your outdoor LED lighting look amazing in many ways, here are some ways to get you thinking about what might work for your home.

1. Light Up Your Patio

If you spend a lot of time outside, you’ll likely be doing this under your patio. And on those long, hot summer nights when you’re enjoying time with family and friends, you’ll need something perfect to create the perfect mood. So what better way to show off your entertaining area than with some strip LED lighting?

Some ideas to brighten your patio area include placing outdoor LED strip lights around the eaves, the patio frame, or the steps around the decking area.

Placing lighting around your patio accentuates any bold edges or steps and creates a layered effect that will be the envy of your guests.

2. Add to Your Back Yard Furniture

If you’re a pro at backyard entertaining, you will have the latest and greatest outdoor dining and seating to keep your guests comfortable. LED strip lighting will come into its own when you use it to level up your lighting experience outside.

Placing LED strip lights under the table top will add just enough ambience to highlight seating without compromising the look of your outdoor furniture.

If you have outdoor sofas, you can attach LED strip lighting to the bottom of the sofa, or if the furniture is pressed up beside a wall, around the back to make a statement.

3. Make Your Pool Sparkle

If you have a swimming pool and are not utilising LED strip lighting to enhance the aesthetics of your backyard, then you are missing out.

Most home pools have a simple light, but why not put your pool into the modern age with some waterproof strip lighting around the edge of the pool? Imagine just how good that will look at night lit up.

Waterproof LED strips are very flexible and can easily fit around the edge of a rectangular, round or irregular-shaped pool and can change colours with a button to create a colourful ambience. Waterproof LED strips are versatile lighting solutions designed to be used in various environments, including both indoor and outdoor settings

The water creates a fantastic dispersion of light for the strips and will make any night swim a memorable experience.


4. Illuminate Walkways

An illuminated walkway using LED strip lighting is a great way to introduce people to your backyard. It makes a statement in and around your access areas in your private outdoor oasis and makes your backyard safer by preventing injury.

Light up your walkway with colour LED strip lighting or a traditional white light. Either way, you go, you will create a bold and textured thoroughfare in your house that makes a statement while adding safety and charm.

Consider a waterproof or water-resistant LED strip light along your walkway so it can withstand the elements all year round.

5. Make Your Garden Glow

Want to add some depth to your backyard? LED strip lighting around your garden could be the answer for you.

Luminate your lawn edges to create a border with LED strip lights, and place additional spotlights or floodlights within the foliage to create bold and textured shapes and patterns at night. You can also wrap LED lights around trees to create additional patterns.

Your night garden will be the talk of the town with some creative LED strip lighting.

Speak to a Professional

The list of ways we’ve discussed to get your backyard looking fabulous is a guide only. The sky is the limit, and the possibilities are endless. It’s a good way to start thinking about how LED strip lighting could enhance your outdoors.

We suggest you speak to a professional who will walk you through what is possible in line with your budget and the layout of your yard.

Professional lighting installation businesses, like Bondilights, are experienced in LED installations, and we understand what type of lighting works best in what environment.

We don’t recommend taking on a lighting installation project if you don’t know what you’re doing, especially around wet areas. The installation can be complex and expensive if things don’t pan out as you had hoped.
