Rope lights are available with incandescent bulbs or LED bulbs. Because LEDs offer superior energy efficiency, long life and far more choices in the type of light they can emit, they are the preferred choice for many home and business owners. With LEDs, you can pick warm color temperatures that are similar to the yellowish light given off by traditional incandescent light bulbs. These are ideal for spaces where you want people to relax, such as dining rooms and patios. But LEDs also are available at cool temperatures that offer a bright, white, almost-blue light ideal for work spaces and other places where you want bright lighting for superior visibility.
Enased in clear or semitransparent tubing, rope lights are also available in a variety of colors, which makes them perfect for decorative uses. For a really impressive effect, take a look at chasing rope lights. These rope lights let you use a controller to create amazing chasing or flashing effects with the rope's lights.
Whether you want to add definition to a balcony railing, deck or walkway or wish to provide task lighting under a kitchen counter or cupboard, rope lights offer an easy, inexpensive solution. In fact, there are hundreds of other ways to use rope lights, whether for practical purposes such as lighting up dark closet corners or just for decorative ends, such as adding festive fun and flair to a party. Your imagination is the only limit to what you can do with these handy lights.
