Night after night billions of stars flash from the sky and charm with their impressive sparkle. However, you can not see the stars every night and from any place. Sometimes the sky is cloudy and the view of the stars is blocked. In densely populated areas such as large cities, the starry sky is hardly recognizable because of the lights of streets and houses even in cloudless nights. If you want to get the magic of the stars in your own four walls, you can opt for a starry sky with LED glass fibers for the interior. This decorative lighting is suitable for every room in the home and creates wonderful lighting effects indoors.
How does the starry sky with LED for indoor use work?
To look at the starry sky during the night promotes relaxation and ensures a real well-being. Therefore, this type of lighting is perfect for living spaces such as the bedroom, living room, spa, bath, as well as the children’s room. But how does LED technology actually work for the starry sky in the living area and can one build such an original ceiling lighting? The answers to these questions can be found in our article!
The LED starry sky is a beautiful variation for effect lighting, which looks particularly beautiful and decorative in every room. More and more architects are using this variant for designer apartments to give the interior a very special whistle. For the starry sky it is best to use glass fiber cables, which are placed in a suspended ceiling. As an alternative, small miniature built-in radiators can also be used to depict the stars of the afterthought. For DIY enthusiasts, ready-made starry sky sets and ceiling lights are also available on the market for installation in the ceiling.
In order for the ceiling to look similar to the starry sky, the individual light-emitting diodes are arranged close together. When the light is switched on, all of them light up simultaneously and produce a wonderful effect, especially at night. The LED glass fibers used can be monochrome, multicolor or even with color change. The choice is entirely up to you.
Starry sky with LED for the living area
The living room is the area in the apartment where you spend most of the time when you are not sleeping. Therefore, the living room should be comfortable and inviting to linger. A LED starry sky is quite suitable as an attractive ceiling light for this area. In combination with indirect lighting, you can set your suspended ceiling beautifully and create an accent in the room.
Since in the sky both small and large stars can be seen, the starry sky can be designed with LED lights of different sizes. For the small stars, therefore, the glass fiber is quite good, with the large ones the built-in spotlights in the miniature format best fit. Just make sure that the big “stars” should be less than the small ones.
Although the starry sky with LEDs is generally regarded as a kind of effect lighting, complete ceiling lighting with LED light fibers is also possible. However, the ceiling is to be painted in a light color and the number of luminaires should be matched with the size of the living space.
LED starry sky creates a feel-good atmosphere in the bedroom
The dream of many people is to lie in bed in the evening and to look at the stars covered with stars. However, this is only possible if you live in a small town and the bed is under a window or roof window. If this is not the case, you can opt for a starry heaven of LED glass fibers and invite the night sky to your own bedroom.
For this you do not necessarily have to order a suspended ceiling with individual light fibers. Skilled craftsmen can even build their own stars with LED and achieve beautiful light effects in the bedroom or in another living area. For this purpose, you need a plate of wood, plastic, hard foam or hard fiber in any shape and color, which should be designed with the glass fibers and finally installed in the ceiling.
Then drill holes with a 1 mm drill into the selected plate. For the starry sky with LED you need an LED light fiber set with several glass fibers, which you put through the drilled holes. This step takes a little more time because you have to pull each individual fiber through a hole. When finished, the fibers on the back can be fixed with a spray adhesive or adhesive tape. In the next step, the light fibers should be shortened with a pincer by making the cuts as close as possible to the plate. All that remains is the plate on the ceiling to be assembled and ready!
If you would like to control the lighting in the bedroom from the bed, then you should opt for a starry sky set with remote control. The LED light fibers can even be dimmable, so you can adjust the intensity of the lighting at your own pace.
Starry sky with LED for the bathroom
There is nothing better for you than a relaxing bubble bath after a stressful day? How about a bathtub underneath? For this you do not necessarily have to book a room in an expensive hotel, but can simply build an LED starry sky on the ceiling in the bathroom. It is worthwhile to opt for dimmable glass fibers so that you can adjust the intensity of the lighting as needed. This creates a real feel-good atmosphere in the bathroom.
An LED starry sky for the wellness area
Star heaven with LED is particularly popular for wellness areas, such as saunas, steam baths and swimming pools. The attractive lighting creates a relaxed ambiance and a beautiful natural spectacle in the interior. In doing so, the individual light fibers can be designed in such a way that they mimic exactly the post-mold.
If you have a private indoor swimming pool at home, this ceiling lighting is perfect for the pool area. Especially in the evening, the small light points in the water are reflected and create charming light effects.
Home cinema under the stars
Another area in the apartment, which would look really nice with a LED starry sky, is the home cinema. So you can watch your favorite movies under the stars without leaving the apartment. For this area, however, it is recommended to create the starry sky on a dark blue or even black ceiling to make it more realistic.
