Vertical LED strips for smaller rooms – If the size of your room is small, you can use LED lights not just to make it bright and beautiful but also to enlarge it visually. Linear strips of LED lights running from the bottom to the top (the place where side walls meet the ceiling) creates a visual illusion of a taller room.
