LED lighting is incredibly energy efficient, and it’s increasingly easy to integrate into existing homes as well as new construction. Screw-in LED light bulbs are perfect for lamps and fixtures – but for task and accent lighting, LED strip lighting is a great option.
LED strips are cheap, easy to install, and they deliver outstanding energy efficiency. They’re an ideal alternative to bulbs anywhere space is tight: under cabinets, inside shelving units, below a mantel, under railings, or inside tray ceiling soffits.
The low-voltage diodes are mounted on a 5-meter (16′) flexible ribbon, which can be cut to size as needed. The strips can also be linked for longer runs if required, and they are backed with peel-off adhesive for easy mounting. The LEDs provide roughly twice the brightness of LED rope lighting, and they are available in different color temperature options (see our LED Lighting Buyers Guide for an explanation of light quality and color temperature).
