If you wish to decorate your mirror and to be sure that your decoration won’t be covering it, LEDs are ideal. All you have to do is stick a STRIPLED at the back of your mirror to create a modern design, that will accent your reflection as an added bonus.
This installation can also be useful, especially to people who love taking selfies and sharing a photo taken in the mirror with their newest outfit on social medias. It can illuminate the person standing in front of the mirror in every color possible.
Our advice for the perfect mirror selfie is to choose a white colored light that will give your photo a professional shooting-studio feel. As a general rule, placing a led strip behind a mirror is always a good solution to bring a trendy and modern touch to it.
However, do be careful if you chose to set a LED strip behind a mirror in your bathroom. Some precautions should be taken. Notably, be sure to choose a LED strip with a IP44 or IP65 protection rating. Those ratings assure you that the LED are resistant to humidity or water splashing, which can happen in this space.
A STRIPLED To Embellish Your Kitchen Furniture
LEDs can easily find their place in a kitchen. Under some cabinets or under a counter that is sticking out, you can plan on setting a LED strip that would be invisible until you turn it on.

Indeed, few people think about this room when in comes to LED, yet this type of functional lighting is ideal to create a trendy vibe in this lively room. Exactly like for the mirror, a white colored light is advised. You even can enjoy the Candle ambience, available on the Smart and Green Mesh app, perfect for a romantic cooking lesson!

LEDs To Illuminated A Wall Recess
The perfect solution to combine authenticity and modernity. It is not a rare thing to see recesses in walls in some houses. Many people use these spaces for decoration where they place a variety of decorative objects, like books for example.
The idea here is to accent these little spaces with LED lights, of which you can adjust the color according to the theme of the room. For instance, a yellow colored light is ideal for a recess decorated with books, and a pink light is perfect to embellish a more cheerful decoration. Don’t hesitate to try out new colors and theme!
For this usage, neutral colors, like white, won’t work if the wall’s color is already light. It will be more pleasant to pick a light with soft tones, like a light green or a sunny yellow.
Adhesive STRIPLED To Create A Path
