1. Do Your Socks a Favor (Bedroom)

It's that time of the week again. Time to gather the dirty clothes that lay scattered across your floor, hurl them into your hamper, and load them into the washing machine. A few intentionally-left-out-by-me steps later and you're ready to return your clothes to their proper nesting place. All of a sudden, reality hits. You look down and notice that your favorite pair of socks is now a single sock, and your entire week gets turned upside down. Ok, well, maybe it's not that serious, but we've all been there. Not only can the use of LED's under your bed help alleviate that issue, but it's also incredibly cool looking and can add an interesting dynamic to your bedroom.

2. Life is All About Seating and Lighting (Couch)

The living room is a place we go to unwind; a place we go to kick our feet up, turn on our favorite TV show, and turn off our minds. You could argue that the living room is the most important room in the house. The use of LED's under your couch not only adds a clean, modern look to your living room but can also be the perfect amount of light for watching TV.

3. Stairway to Heaven (Stairs)

If you're anything like me, you've grown up with an entirely rational fear of the space between the steps on your stairway. It's not your fault, though. Those spaces are dark and the people who make scary movies are excellent at their jobs. Now, adding LED's to illuminate these areas won't ensure that something isn't there, but at least you'll have an opportunity to see it coming.

4. Rockstar Parking (Garage)

During the hours past sunset, and before sunrise, the landing strip of an airfield is found illuminated by an array of bright lights. These lights not only make it easier for pilots to locate the airfield but use them as a guide for them to land safely. Although the stakes aren't quite as high, you can say the same about the use of LED lights in your garage. You might feel it gives you a slight boost of confidence, as well.

5. A Throne Fit for a King (or Queen) (Bathrooms)

The weekend is here, and it's time to get ready to go out for the night. This task usually begins and ends in the bathroom. A bathroom is a place where lighting can determine whether or not we go out looking our best, or looking our worst. LED accents around the mirror not only give your bathroom an elegant look but provide the perfect amount of light to assist with things like shaving and applying makeup.

6. Dive Deep into the Divine (Pool)

There are few things more relaxing than a night swim. If you're fortunate enough to have a swimming pool in your backyard, you know that more than most people. You've worked hard your entire life to be able to have that luxury, and chances are you're not going to stop there. Colorful LED's built into your pool sounds extravagant because it is extravagant. This is by far one of the coolest ways to use LEDs. If you've got the money, and the hubris to pull it off, we firmly encourage it.

7. Brightly Lit, Sharply Dressed (Closet)

The keeper of cloth, the safeguard of secrets, the gateway to galavanting, the closet. Lining yours with a soft white LED can make getting ready to go out a little bit easier. Although this isn't one of the most popular uses of LED's, it certainly provides an element of elegance.

8. Embrace the (Night) Light (Decks)

It's Friday night, and you feel alright; the party's not on the west side unless you live on the west side. If you don't, the party's just at your place, and you've got a bright idea. You've also got a big deck, and you want people to know about it. You think to yourself, "tiki torches?" Then you remember that your name isn't Jeff Probst and the people coming over aren't members of your tribe. Luckily for you, there's enough time to erase that terrible idea from your memory bank and give it another shot. Given you were on the right track, you turn your attention to another source of light: the LED. Not only are these a much, much more sleek, modern looking option that will impress your friends, they're also much, much safer.

9. Color Coded Cupboards (Cupboards/Shelves)

At this point, we've learned that the use of LED lighting has as much to do with appearance as it does functionality. From a brightly lit bookshelf to a color coded cupboard, this fact is reinforced in full.
