Comfy LED Lighting in Room

Even with only one of the lights turned on in my room, I still have too much light in my room to help me relax. How would I go about setting up a based and comfy LED setup throughout my room to help me relax and feel super comfy?

    I would start by
    1. Looking into the different kinds of LED lights and how they work.
    2. Then you should use that knowledge and apply it to "your room." (Make sure mom & dad are OK with it first!).
    3. Come up with a list of needed parts and buy them.
    4. Install them.
    Then you can finally be comfy with your new comfy led setup and relax and be super comfy!

      Are you implying that this is not a perfectly valid PrepHole thread, unlike all the "I gots me a new job, how I fit in?" bullshit?

          why not make a bingo card where every fricking square says "NOT DIY"? OP has something he wants to do, and he asked for advice. Frick off with your bingo card and help OP with his pursuit of a comfy existence. Or go give advice to that shithead who can't sleep because he finally got a job, WHICH IS NOT DIY RELATED.

          LOL. PrepHole, where logic fails.

            No, he saw a picture and the thought

            No, he's asking for someone to do all the thinking and legwork to come up with a

            for a room they've never seen or been in so that he can sit in his parent's house and

              I think I'll just watch a few videos, but the don't seem to be very bright and create a very relaxing aura, compared to that one light bulb I have to keep on all the time when I'm in my room at night.

                I read this article on home lighting recently and found it very useful: https://www.finehomebuilding.com/2023/12/21/the-science-and-art-of-better-home-lighting

                For a simple to install LED setup you could stick NanoLeaf tiles on a wall. Or get as involved as you like with combining components (led strips, controllers, power supplies, diffusers) to create something fully custom. And everyhing in between those two extremes.
                A very, very simple fix is to swap to a dimmable warm bulb with a good diffusing lightshade. Then you can just tone it down manually whenever you like.

    Relaxation is weakness.

    There is nothing comfy about this image. I feel like the room is expecting me to start jerking off so it can watch.

    That means you should avoid the blue end of the spectrum. That includes violet, but don't confuse violet light with the compund of red and blue. Avoid major contrasts in intensity, make sure you have sufficient light where you plan to work or read.
    And for general well being, add some plants.

      That has never made a difference to me, and I've always gotten anxious when I've tried using my computer with no blue light. Blue and violet light make me feel very comfy. When I start feeling like relaxing, I'll just dim the lights down and make my room feel magical.

    ultraviolet light progressively hardens the lenses of your eyes, and essentially locks your ability to focus at a particular distance as you age.
    UV looks cool, but kinda isn't.
    Also, LEDs colour spectrum can shift as they age, sometimes into eye-dangerous wavelenghts.
    Just sayin

    You need specific LED bulbs to respond to dimmer switches. Grandpa's incandescent bulbs just responded directly to less power.

    Second, check your white. LED are rated in Kelvin and the value determines how pure white they are. Real sunlight is yellow so pure white can be sterile and sickly despite being brighter. Look for warmer (more yellow) bulbs.

    Accent lighting is easy, just buy Chinese led strips with controls and put them behind shit so the light is reflected off the walls. It's literally buy a kit peel the backing and stick in place.

      I actually just looked this up. The sun is white. It's just commonly displayed as being yellow. It kinda looks yellow around sunrise and sundown. Now, there are white LED bulbs that try to emulate the wavelengths of the sun and to their same relative intensities.

      For a project I used a strip that had one yellow rail and one white / blue rail that you could dial in between warm and cold
      would highly recommend it if you're worried about getting the exact right kelvin from china

    most of the 'magic' in lighting design is diffusion
    with led strip based lighting, pick an extrusion design and angle and play with various diffusion strips for the extrusion size and indirect angles into walls and corners so you can't see the lights directly

    lamps with an adjustable reflector and shades, opaline glass orbs, etc make interesting light sources

      Diffusion with LED also requires different approaches in some cases because unlike incandescent filaments and gas filled tubes that glow pretty much evenly in all directions and need reflectors and other physical guides to concentrate them into narrower beams, LEDs have a very directional dispersion pattern thats about a 30° cone.

      That makes them great for task lighting and flashlights and such, but without adequate diffusion they can suck in fixtures like standard table lamps, and fixtures made for incandescents that have reflectors like ceiling can downlights may underperform with an LED bulb designed to mimic the all-around dispersion of the bulbs they were designed for.

      Conversely, a properly designed LED lamp fixture that replaces big ceiling cans may perform better and only needs to be about an inch thick because no reflector or aperture is needed to focus the light.

      LED accent strips achieve better dispersion by using lots of sources and spacing but still tend to stay more focused and harder to blend into overall ambient/fill light unless you really consider the overall setup- just like with fixtures, soffits and baffles and other schemes used to disperse and soften indirect lighting from incandescent and flourescent bulbs may not work as well if similarly shaped LED bulbs are substituted with no other adjustments.
