Media Panel LEDs – feature lighting
This TV room installation creates its striking effect with a series of colour-changing LED tapes, fixed around a bespoke panel in which the screen is mounted.
The panel’s LED strips are mounted in a similar fashion to those found on drop-ceiling installations. When they’re so close to a wall (or other surface), the LEDs may give unwanted reflections – so in order to avoid this, the strips are housed in frosted aluminium profiles (aka extrusions) which diffuse the light from the LEDs. This produces a smooth colour-wash effect on the surrounding wall.
Kitchen LEDs – main lights, working lights & feature lights
InStyle supplied all the LED tape (kitchen and TV-room media panel) pre-cut and soldered to the lengths required by the homeowner, ready for hassle-free installation right out of the box.
The kitchen LEDs are mounted at three levels – to offer plinth/kickboard lighting, under-cabinet lighting and drop-ceiling lighting. Each level is paired to its own multizone LED receiver, so each is a separate lighting system or ‘zone’ that can be controlled independently of the others (as this pic demonstrates).
The three multichannel receivers in the kitchen are controlled by the same hand-held remote unit as the TV-room media panel. In fact, this model of remote control can handle up to 8 independent lighting zones!
