LED Rope Lights are the New Craze

Updated on February 26, 2011

Why Use them?

In the past, people were forced to use bulky systems with easily tangled wires if they wanted unique lighting. These days, however, it couldn't be easier to add beautiful decorative lighting to any room with the use of LED rope lights. These lights come in a variety of colors and lengths and can be perfect for adding accent lighting to a variety of places with a minimal amount of effort. Rope lights have been used in kitchens, living rooms, bars and many other places where unique lighting can be really impressive.

Rope lighting is great because it can be placed almost anywhere, indoors and out. Rope lights make great accents for walk ways, stairs, porches and windows and will also illuminate the area quite well if safety is a concern. LED rope lights can also be a perfect solution to tangled Christmas lights because they are easy to roll back up when its time to take down the holiday decorations.

Rope lights can look great in public places like bars, clubs, restaurants and anywhere else that needs a little ambiance. White lights strung along the entrance to a restaurant can give it a beautiful dream like quality while illuminating the entrance and signage. Colored rope lighting can be placed around a bar to create a certain feeling and can also help display the bottles on the shelf. Many clubs will use LED rope lights because they can be placed along walls, across ceilings and anywhere else that traditional lights can't go.

Benefits to Rope Lights

One of the biggest benefits to using rope lighting is that it can cut down on energy costs. LED lights are known for being incredibly bright for their small size and require very little power. A string of Rope Lighting will use a fraction of the energy that incandescent lights need and will light an area just as well. Energy consumption is a big concern these days so using LED lights can be a great way to go green.

Installing new lights can mean serious renovation and some heavy bills from electricians but these lights are so easy to install that anyone can do it. They can add beauty to a fine establishment, create a fun atmosphere in clubs and bars or can even be used as holiday lighting around the home. There really is no end to the number of ways they can be used and since they are so affordable and easy to install they just can't be beat.
