Fun and Easy To Install LED Lighting For Your Home

It's amazing how after so many years of building homes there are still places that never seem to have enough light. Every home I have ever lived in has had places where there were dark spots no matter how well placed lamps, wall sconces, and ceiling lights are. And sometimes, you just want a little extra light for effect and decoration.

That's where light strips, like the Goeswell LED Strip Light, really come in handy. They arrive to you in a sealed, waterproof bag, which I think is great. They won't get damaged in delivery and you can keep what you don't use stored in the bag.

This LED Light Strip is a very low voltage (12 volt) but super bright, much brighter than other LED rope lights. The light strip is flexible and waterproof, which makes it easy to use it in a variety of places in your home.

It uses a very flexible PCB board as the base and adopts SMD Chip LED lights as its luminous body. Its small size and voltage is a good choice for architectural lighting, sign letter light, concealed lighting, like under cupboards in the kitchen, perimeter lighting, and many other decorative uses. The lights last up to 50,000 hours, giving you a good value for your money.

The reel the strip lights come on has 16.4 feet of light that is about ¼" wide.

The light strip has a 3M adhesive sticky strip on the back to be easily mount onto most flat surfaces. it does not adhere to brick, but then not a lot of adhesive strips do. It is super easy to adhere and you can slowly pull off the sticky tape protective cover as you line up the light strip.

I love that the strip can be cut to length quickly (cutting lines are clearly marked), and you can adapt this to pretty much any place you need horizontally or vertically. You can cut the strip every 3 LED lights, so it is easy to figure out how much you will need since there are 600 on the entire strip, and every 3 LED lights is 1".

Installing does require a little electrical knowledge, and unfortunately specific instructions are not included. But a basic handy man can install them pretty easily. The light strip is on a small reel, which makes keeping them untangled and keeping what you don't use on something you can store easily very simple.

These are going to go under our cupboards in the kitchen to help light up an area that is always so dark and difficult to work around with our limited counter space. I'm sure there are several places in your home you could find a use for these!
