Roll Out the Lights

Roll Out the Lights


In the past, the choice you had for decorative lighting was very limited. Either a regular bulb or a set of string lights that could possibly match the event you were having. Unique and decorative lighting wasn’t really an option then. Well, now all of that has changed and we now have lights that can be used in a variety of ways to meet our imaginations. The lights I’m talking about are LED strip lights and rope lights.



Now LED strip lights and rope lights are different from traditional lights. Rope lights are a long cylindrical PVC tube with advanced LEDs to give off a glowing effect while strip lights are a long flexible circuit board populated with surface mounted LEDs. They both may have LED chips and come on a reel, but they are used for different applications that depends on what light you’re using and what your needs are.



Torchstar’s LED strip lights come in two types, single color and RGB color changing. As the names imply with them, single color strip lights only have one color so it’s very easy to hardwire them for a project. Single color strip lights are also popular for using as under cabinet lights. There low profile and long length make them easy to hide and provide even lighting for your counters. RGB color changing strip lights are popular for decorating rooms and DIY projects for a modern and entertaining feel. Accessories like connectors, aluminum channels and extension cables let you customize your strip lights as you desire.



Rope lights are a flexible decorative light that let you light up your party without it being obnoxious and distracting to your guests. The longer length of rope lights means that you have more to work with, letting you be a lot more flexible with your lighting. These rope lights are waterproof, letting you enjoy them outdoors with no worry. They can also bend to a certain degree so they can wrap around railing or poles for a nice effect. Torchstar offers rope lights in a variety of different single colors and even a color changing model to fit different needs for parties and events.



Both strip lights and rope lights are a great choice for decorative lighting. They allow for well-hidden light that distracts your guests from the festivities. Make sure you are choosing the right one to meet your needs.
