A great way of adding some fantastic mood lighting to your home or office is to use 10m LED strip lights. Furthermore, these are becoming widespread in use with home owners and designers as they are very easy to fit. They quickly change the whole ambience of the room because they can display a wide range of colours. There are 2 types of coloured strips, fixed colour e.g. blue only, and RGB that can display a huge range of colours. Almost all LED strips (sometimes called LED tape) have a self adhesive backing for ease & speed of assembly.
