6W IKEA ‘Dioder’ RGB Lighting Strips
Price: About €30.
Colour: All colours, easily picked with control panel. Can be set to monochrome, alternating or fading seamlessly through the spectrum.
Impression: Great product! Very flexible design. More decorative than for illumination but it worked perfectly for the purpose I bought it for, which was to give a soft coloured light from under the basin cabinet while brushing teeth at night (as my bathroom lamps are not dimmable and I can’t stand bright light right into my eyes just before bedtime). So then I use the red setting, which is the darkest and the least melatonin-suppressing.
When I have guests or just want a change, I can use other colours and make my bathroom look really festive and colourful with just a click on the control panel.
Love it! Unlike the gloomy excuses for ‘warm-white’ LEDs at IKEA, the varying colours on this one really cheers one up! If I had kids, I’d make a magic room for them with several of these.
I do have my doubts about it lasting for 20 years, but let me get back on that one… 😉
