Cover the Walls in Light

Bringing the walls of a room to attention is a technique that will markedly change a room's whole impact. Washing the walls with light projected from a variety of spaces drastically improves the viability and vitality of the interior. LED strip lighting running along walls is a great way to produce a powerful effect. You could also think about directional lighting highlighting every angle of the walls and their corners.
