Evening all, i've been wanting to create that cove light effect in my
After some research i was recommended rope lighting instead of the expensive
Xenon strips normally used in offices, larger buildings etc. So i would like
to mount the roplight up about 4-5inches below ceiling height round
perimeter of my bedroom.
Had a good ole google and can't find any prefabricated coving suiting my
requirements as you can imagine it needs to hide the rope light itself but
not stick out too far, thought about putting a lip at the front, done a
cheeky design in 3dsmax, excuse the bleeding of light.
Do i just use timber , was thinking about strips about 65mm wide, with a lip
at the front.
How do i fix it to the wall, no more nails? Other wise i drill right through
the width of the timber or create and additional vertical strip along the
back (so it will look like U-section instead of L) and screw through that,
obviously more work. Would be interested to hear about anyone who has done
this, happy to offer pics once ive finished it!
