Ways To Make Setting Up Custom LED Lights Easier

Posted on

You may have just purchased some custom LED lights, whether it's for your own personal bar or maybe a business storefront you're trying to decorate in a unique way. Either way, you may want to approach their installation yourself as to save some money. If you take these steps throughout installation, you'll  get amazing results and highlight the best aspects of these dynamic lights.

Cut Appropriately

When you buy any strip of custom LED lights, you'll have particular dimensions. You may find out that the lights are actually too big based on where they're going. In this case, you'll need to cut LED strips appropriately. Most LED lights can be cut and still function just fine.

You'll just need to make some measurements before you do any cutting so that you can verify a certain dimension. You might hold up these lights around the area where they're supposed to go to get a better picture of how much smaller they need to be. Then you can cut and have an easier installation to look forward to.

Use Lights With Adhesive Backings

If you want to make LED light installations go pretty smoothly — even if you've never come across custom LED lights before — then you should strongly consider adhesive backings. A lot of LED lights have these backings as to make setup user-friendly.

You can peel off the materials that came from manufacturing, which will expose a sticky surface. Then you can line up the LED lights around a particular area and press against them as hard as you can. The adhesive backing should keep the lights in place, especially if the lights are relatively lightweight. 

Install a Controller Holder

Most custom LED lights will usually come with a controller that you can use to turn these lights on and off and switch light colors. If yours comes with one, then you want to make sure you set up a controller holder for it.

Then you can easily position the controller in this holder where you'll have easier access, whether it's on the wall or maybe on the side of your office desk. These holders help you position LED controllers in strategic locations that make using these lights even more convenient.

LED lights can be customized in all kinds of ways and used for different purposes. Their installation will be easy if you're smart about design choice and installation techniques. Reach out to a professional who provides custom-made LED lights to get started.
