No need to worry, there are easy techniques so that this hose lamp can look good around the area of the house. Therefore, make sure you have clearly learned all the steps:
Determine the Part of the House where You want to Place the Lights
If the hose lights are made for home decoration, of course, the placement does not have to be the same as the decoration lights that we encounter in other places, such as restaurants and cafes. As an option, it might be possible to place it on a wall, either inside or outside the room. Besides that, you can put it on the bottom wall of the ceiling/ceiling of the house.
In choosing where to install the hose lights can be based on the intensity of the light. Because of the room light is too bright, the effect of the hose lights can be reduced. Therefore, if the room already has sufficiently bright lighting, it is not recommended to decorate the house using this table lamp. But you can put it outdoors.
The selection of the place to install the hose lights must be right. Will that part of the room become the center of attention or vice versa? Such as a gathering place with family, neighbors/work colleagues, then the outer wall of the room should be the most possible place, right? Make sure it is not far from the nearest power source because the hose lights require electrical energy as the main power.
Prepare the Tools and Materials Needed
In order to give the maximum Glow effect, choose a single colored table lamp. Single color hose lights also give a warm and natural feel to your home, rather than using colorful cable lights. The length of the table lamp can be adjusted through the area/length of the field where the lamp is installed. Next, provide the tools / supporting materials
a. Nails, Hammer & Wooden Blocks (length range 10-15 cm)
The length of the nail is adjusted to the thickness of the wooden beam used. It is recommended not to use wooden blocks that are too thick. Why ? because later it will cause the gap is too wide between the wall and the cable lamp satirical decorator.
Actually it is possible to use adhesive tape, but Standard Holder is more recommended. These cable holders are intended to ensure that the cable lights stick perfectly to the wall surface.
c. Wooden Board
Wood planks are the finishing touch, so they are needed to make the hose lights look different from the hose lights in their usual places. The board should be smoothed to the surface because it will be the last display that tends to be seen. Giving a little painting or drawing a particular pattern may add to the decoration of the house lights.
But, if you install the lamp at the bottom of the ceiling/ceiling of the house, then the wooden board can be replaced with decorations such as decorations on the ceiling. So now you can give a little gap to put decorative lights on the part until it is able to refract the enchanting light, the Glow effect.
