This exact kind. I still have a bunch left over I'm trying to figure out what to do with. I may do something with some shelving above the monitors.

u/serotoninzero · 6 pointsr/battlestations

Been wanting to do a new computer build for a while now, but decided to start with a new desk and monitors.

3xASUS VG248QE 24" 144Hz monitors
Desk/side table/file cabinet/shelves from Ikea.

Still have some cable management, light blocking, shelf filling and general maintenence to do, but for now I'm just relaxing and enjoying it.

Thanks to this subreddit for helping me collect my thoughts for what I wanted to accomplish.

u/kantlivelong · 6 pointsr/pcmods

Check these out:

You can power them from a standard 4 pin molex with a little soldering or crimping. They can also be cut to length.

u/[deleted] · 6 pointsr/buildapc

An LED strip lighting kit. They're only $30 for the expensive ones, and there are many that are even half of that.

I ran the strip along the back edge of my desk, and down the legs, and up under the top (to take up the slack). The extra ambient light is awesome, and I can change the color and brightness for mood.

This is what it can look like:

u/Zombi3Kush · 5 pointsr/battlestations

For anyone interested in LEDS for their setup do yourself a favor and get these instead of dioder from ikea.

u/1eight0 · 5 pointsr/reddevils

They are LED strips like these have 2, each running across the top and bottom of the back of the monitor horizontally.

u/YeomansIII · 4 pointsr/battlestations
u/BROMAR06 · 4 pointsr/battlestations

^^That is one 16 foot reel of the lights, it comes with a 12V Power Adapter

^^The Music IR controller... This will say in the reviews that it doesn't come with a power supply, well, you can use the power supply that comes with the reel in the link above and it works, and you can hook up to three strands into the controller. I only have one hooked up, and it's really self explanatory. Plug the 12V into the wall, plug in the strand of lights into the four pin connector on the IR controller with the arrows lined up (you'll see this on the connector) and then plug the 12V into the plug on the IR controller. There are two music modes, and there are also other fade modes, and you can choose solid colors. The remote for the IR controller has less options, but it's audio it's worth it I'd say.

u/baristahipster · 3 pointsr/WeAreTheMusicMakers
u/IAMA_llAMA_AMA · 3 pointsr/buildapc

This is what I bought. For the price, and what it comes with, it's hard to beat. You could get slightly better quality and higher LED density strips (more LEDs/ft) if you just bought a strip of standalone RGB LEDs, but that doesn't come with power, a cool remote and IR sensor, and you have to do a lot more to change to any color other than red/blue/green. This set makes it really easy to do. They even have 3M mounting tape on the back of the strip. It's not very strong though.

Lastly, if you end up buying another strip to get more than 16ft, make sure you buy it at the same time as the first one. Amazon is known to rotate vendors on this product, so your colors might not match correctly. Make sure to buy the power relay for it as well if you buy another strip.

u/milkrage · 3 pointsr/hiphopheads

I just finished decorating my sophomore dorm, and I think it's ill. Definitely get some command strips and hangers for both useful and decorative purposes. I also picked up some rgb led lights from amazon and they're really fuckin nice, pretty darn cheap too. here's a link:

Also decided to pick up some acoustic panels, which are also pretty cheap. You can make some real cool designs with them and they are definitely something almost nobody else has. I also put up some of my vinyl for a personal touch.

u/joshua_fisher · 3 pointsr/battlestations

strips of led lights, specifically these

u/Iwant2bethe1percent · 3 pointsr/malelivingspace

This is for the LED Lights

This is for the desk lamp which i highly HIGHLY recommend it is an excellent desk lamp that also has a usb plug in!

u/Dorito_Troll · 3 pointsr/battlestations
u/coolkidjf7 · 3 pointsr/battlestations

Sorry for the poor photos,

Link to LED's if interested;

Make sure you get the strip connectors for turning corners!

I can list the specs of the system if anyone cares.

EDIT: forgot to add, the top bar is for a 32" TV, but I have no cable hookup in there, so I'm in no rush to mount it up

u/Samizdat_Press · 3 pointsr/hydro

Please do not post amazon affiliate links. You may have copy/pasted that from elsewhere but it gets caught in the spam filter.

Here is the link for those who don't want to click on the affiliate link

u/dkh · 3 pointsr/gadgets

These work great. You can cut them to size, splice them, etc. saw some places that sold the same thing for much more. They sell a bunch of connectors to make joining them together easier but we found some were put together incorrectly not matching the RGB paths correctly - fixed with a bit of soldering. This was on a Y join - would have just soldered them from the get go if I had known.

We used them inside some open faced kitchen cabinets. Nice to change the colors with the seasons.

u/CodeEverywhere · 3 pointsr/DIY

The LED tape was nice, cheap, and effective. It's kinda bright, but I don't think it's bright enough to light an entire room.

u/mdrsharp · 3 pointsr/synthesizers

Thanks for mentioning the Ikea Stolmen. It is a very cool way to organize your studio.

You should add some LED strips under each tier. I got these for my setup

u/hawt1337 · 3 pointsr/buildapc

If you're willing to spend 30 bucks on led strips, here you go.

If you want something quick and not as expensive, these are for you

Both should last you awhile, but it just depends where your money is at. Regarding how to set them up, once you get them it should come easy.

u/jdm135 · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Yes. They are custom ikea monitor stands. They are great value if you can pick up the parts, $10 for shipping makes it little less great haha.

I'm using this 150 LED RGB Light setup.

u/izzeyy · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Yeah, there's a 12v power supply that came with it.

This is the exact one I bought.

u/Blitzkrieg999 · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Stop the presses, just found this in another Battlestation post I'd bookmarked

Same(?) product, same sellers, better price!

u/_sch · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

This is the one I've been using:

There may be better and worse ones out there; honestly I don't remember how I chose that. But I have three of them and they've worked well for me.

So far I haven't run into any problems. When/if you splice the strips, obviously make sure you keep the wires in order. They sell pre-made connectors and splitters, but I didn't really use any of those. I did buy some of these connectors: but all I ended up using them for was the raw wire (I cut the ends off an soldered them directly to the strips).

In the Arduino-controlled setup, I re-used the power supply that came with the strip, and just fed it through the mosfets linked above. I discareded the remote and the little controller box (well, I filed them away for potential later use).

In my application I found that the adhesive on the back of the strips didn't work very well, so I ended up taping it up with gaffer tape. That works well for me because the strip is in a recessed area you can't see unless you crane your neck to look for it. But if the strips were somewhere more visible, I'd need to look for a more elegant mounting solution.

u/jerstud56 · 2 pointsr/DIY

For the Americans here this is the equivalent.

My roommate and I both have these (he has a few sets around our house) and they work without issue.

u/intheghostclub · 2 pointsr/AskBattlestations

Good and cheap. A lot of people here use this one if they don't go with the Ikea ones which are a bit overpriced IMO.

In regards to the standing desk, I don't know. Personally my back hurts just as bad from standing for too long as it does from sitting for too long.

u/maniac20101 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

they are led lights from amazon. VERY nice for what you pay for. you can cut them to custom length and gives you a TON of colors to choose from

u/ericslager · 2 pointsr/DIY

I used a 16.4 ft RGB LED light strip kit from LEDwholesalers. I got it on Amazon for $32.

u/DeathsDemise · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Would you be so kind to upload an image of the end of the wire on the light strips ? I would like to get one of these but as they are meant for a car i would like to know ahead how im going to plug it into an home electric plug. Thanks !

Edit: Nevermind, looks like i found the perfect kit :)

u/MisterKite · 2 pointsr/battlestations

haha, the picture you posted is the same exact desk I own, and I have mood lighting extremely similar to it.

Here is what i use

Not too expensive, and gives you a full range of color. The tape that is supposed to hold up the LEDs is pretty weak, but I use extra tape to hold it up and it works pretty well.

u/xQcKx · 2 pointsr/AskBattlestations

WHOA WHOA WHOA. Calm your balls.


Requires some DIY, but you can get results like mine.

u/Utub · 2 pointsr/battlestations
u/Red_X · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Alright questions, always happy to answer. I'm on my phone now so ill do my best, if you need more info feel free to PM me.

  1. It's been along time since I measured but I believe the room is 15x35. The last pic I was standing right outside my sliding door but the phone was inside so 35 feet

  2. Sound seems great all around, that's a stupid heater vent going across the ceiling, but worked out well to hide the projector which is about 14' away from the screen. I can either have the surround sound or tv speakers going but the receiver won't play to both at the same time. Surround speaker are directly to the left and right of the couch up by the rope lights.

  3. The covers are just crown molding and planks I painted black. Screwed 2x4s to the ceiling to attach the planks to then cover the screws in them with the molding. Lights some have come doa FYI

  4. So far I've had no problems with the frames. I put Velcro tabs on the back to keep them from swinging plus it makes it way easier to take down and put back up without leveling, I just have to make sure the Velcro lines up. Super easy.

  5. The receiver has 4 or 5 hdmi inputs with 1 hdmi out, the hdmi out goes to a splitter that goes to the projector and tv. I use two different remotes but definitely need a universal. I bought the house before it was finished and the first thing I did when I moved in was tear down the ceiling to add 4 can lights power for the projector, screen, and rope lights. Also added 50' hdmi cable that is connected with wall outlets, one behind the popcorn machine and the other up by the projector, all cable in wall. Dvi to hdmi for PC to receiver and another 50' from splitter to tv but those 2 cables are under the trim on the floor. No noticeable lag except PC on the projector.

  6. Front speaker wire is going through the conduit until it reaches the trim on the floor, then it's under the trim. The surround sound speaker wire is under the trim then up the corner conduit then ran behind the molding with the lights. Conduits everybody, get them at home depot or lowes

  7. The screen is also on amazon
u/Mikeo77 · 2 pointsr/battlestations
u/sofaloafa · 2 pointsr/hydro

anyone else using, or thought about using, those LED light strips like this?

I got one as a gift and have been wondering if I can use it to supplement my current lighting(HPS150 on one rig and 6xCFL 60's with 2x 4"tubes on the other). thought it might be actually to use this thing for something other than mood lighting in my mancave. I was thinking about using it to wrap around the lower section but didn't know if that would be a complete waste or not

u/PrometheusSmith · 2 pointsr/gamingpc

I realize that you made this a few days ago, however I ordered some of the LED strip lights from Amazon to provide extra lighting above my keyboard and behind my desk. you can order these strip lights in many different colors and splice them as you see fit, or you could just buy the color changing kit found here:

Since it is remote controlled you can apparently choose any color you wish from anywhere in the room. It also has the benefit of being quite cheap, yet seems to have reviewed very well.

I just ordered a single color kit in daylight white to provide a bit of extra desk light. It should be coming in sometime this week. If you have any questions about how easy it is to install message me and I'd be happy to detail my experience to you.

u/swordstoo · 2 pointsr/battlestations

This is the specific LED strip that I purchased. However if you have the know how you can try to purchase something off of this listing.

u/wtcnbrwndo4u · 2 pointsr/DIY

Strips is the way to go. You can either buy a premade kit, like the one IKEA sells. It's pretty solid for the price.

I would get this one though. RGB, and has a remote so you can change the colors at whim.

You can buy these to help separate them out.

u/braveheart18 · 2 pointsr/electronics

The neopixel products are pretty good and Adafruit have a lot of content to get you up and running. However if you're a little more circuit savvy you can save money and get these strips instead.

Since you are trying to do 'lightning' flashes you won't benefit from using the addressable led strips (the neopixels). The one I posted is a longer strip that is either all on or all off. The whole strip does take a lot of current though, so whatever you are using for a portable power supply will have to be pretty beefy. I've used them a lot so feel free to ask me any questions.

u/flyindogtired · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Just Bought a light strip off Amazon and mounted it to the back. This one:

u/mike413 · 1 pointr/DIY

You really should shop around. Here's an entire kit for a lot less

u/DustyMouse · 1 pointr/battlestations

I have this LED strip. It comes with everything to set it up. It's plugged into the wall and comes with a little remote that can turn it on/off as well as change the colour.

u/irPonj · 1 pointr/EmeraldPS2 these. have one on top and bottom, soon making a custom controller.

u/mikeinabox · 1 pointr/subaru

I'm sorry to say that I was unable to document the process of converting the cluster to LEDs, I did all the soldering and wiring at work where I work on a lot of prototypes and taking photos is a big no-no. However, this is the kit I was working with, the controller runs off a 12V DC input so you can power it directly off the cluster wiring, the LED strips have solder tabs about every 6 inches where you can cut them and run wires to the next strip, and of course you have to sand off the green backing on the gauge faces.

I will mention there is some trial and error involved with getting the LED placement right and you need to be somewhat skilled in soldering and have a decent, temperature controlled soldering iron as the solder tabs are tiny; your $8 radio shack iron will make this project nearly impossible.

u/minorzz · 1 pointr/DotA2


I got this:

I probably overpaid a bit, but i'd rather a bit more and purchase from Amazon than deal with waiting a while for overseas vendors.

u/BloodAndBeer · 1 pointr/battlestations

Just ordered these:
Hoping to get same effect as yours.

u/xana452 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

They look like they could be these, in which case they're RGB.

They're as good as the look from the picture as they are in real life.

u/Thrashlol · 1 pointr/battlestations

and for under my bed which isn't pictured. Either one do well for lighting. The one from amazon has much more settings for lights

u/Lithious · 1 pointr/battlestations

Wall invertor, It's this exact kit -
I went with this because I love glow, but I want to be able to turn it off sometimes, or when im downloading a game over night so I can sleep. The red fan on the front of my case is the only light I cant turn off, looking to change that soon :).

u/CondoOnMyWrist · 1 pointr/DIY

I think this is my best option. This has pretty good reviews on Amazon,

Do you know where I might find just the remote? Would something like this work with the receiver that's already attached?

u/mr_captain_awesome · 1 pointr/hometheater

I wonder how bright they are compare to what I already own?

I am looking for something to replace these. My issue with my current set is the LED's brightness tends to decay over time. Changing the power supply usually resolves this. But I would prefer an alternative solution.


How bright would you say the strip is?

u/PeelStickPull · 1 pointr/AmateurRoomPorn

I had the same problem when we were remodeling our kitchen 1 year ago. The cabinet color made the kitchen rather dark. As other had said, we installed LED lights. We put some on top of the cabinets and in the ceiling lights and we loved it.

We bought this kit on Amazon. It was cheap ($32.00) so if we didn't liked it was not a wallet breaking loss and it changes color so we could adjust it to the color we wanted.

This is how it looks 1, 2. The leds can be dimmed also, if they are too bright.

We change the colors depending on the season. For the holidays and Valentines we change them to red so it matches the decorations and so forth.

I love this lights.

u/pachewychomp · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Hmmm. I added LED lights to my house and kitchen last year. Used something similar to this and ran it in 4 areas in my house.

No need to add a junction box as long as you're ok with using a remote control and it's fun to change the colors every now and then.

u/ajf01 · 1 pointr/DIY

Honestly man El is a great product but I don't know. Personally I would go with a color changing LED tape product. See the thing about El from my experience was that it was hard to keep in place, not too bright , and the noise the power inverter makes was just awful. It's great for tiny project (I made a battery powered el wire shirt for a rave) but something like that you'd probably want to explore a bit. And sorry I can't help with the soldering it's something I have never done.

And this is what I had in mind as a better idea.

u/gustsof1000winds · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I used a similar strip lighting with remote from Amazon ( for above cabinet and under cabinet lighting in my kitchen remodel. I also have them set up behind my computer monitor. They work well once you set up your own colors. The "white" out of the box is a pretty harsh bluish-white. I would suggest that wherever you put them, you get a better adhesive or double sided tape because the one they include on it sucks and starts to fail pretty quickly.

u/Andrewhd · 1 pointr/PS4

This is the one, it has a full color spectrum and you can save 6 preset colors of your choice. Comes with remote and battery, it has brightness settings and illuminates incredibly well behind my 50" plasma. Been working for 6 months so far with no problems.

u/swainmugwump · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

There you go. Same budget, included RGB RAM sticks, blue fans, case with blue accent.
Changed motherboard to a more plain so that the blue is emphasized and not blocked like the previous red mobo.

Credit to user/rosulek and user/ericslager for their DIY projects that eventually helped me develop mine. Below are links to their DIY projects.



Also, most all of the materials I used I got from the Home Depot.

Lastly, the link to the LEDs from Amazon:


u/FourthTriumvir · 1 pointr/battlestations

I got these. They're pretty good, though completely ghetto if you look behind the monitors.

u/Aphus · 1 pointr/macsetups

I purchased a 16ft LED strip light set from Amazon for $32. It's really easy to set up - just plug it in, and stick the adhesive LED tape to the back edge of the desk. The lights are pointed directly at the wall, so you get a glowing effect that isn't too bright.

u/torchic_for_dinner · 1 pointr/DIY

No, there are tons of LED strips that have pre-coded patterns in them. Here is an example!

u/bobbybass · 1 pointr/InteriorDesign

mount these in a soffit, you can daisy chain them together, length is 16ft, and totally adjustable colors, from white, pink and beyond.

here they are in my home studio (on left and right)

u/super_not_clever · 1 pointr/DIY

Yup, about half your pictures are cove lighting, and the other half lighting pillars and walls is up lighting. If that's the effect you're going for, the product I linked should do quite nicely. If you have the money, I would wholy suggest getting RGB LEDs and an appropriate controller, just in case someday you want to change it up. This kit comes with everything you need, and has some picture examples which I think match what you are looking for. You can certainly find cheaper kits on eBay, just keep in mind that for RGB you will need the LEDs, a controller and a power supply.

u/DavFlr5 · 1 pointr/buildapc

I used this one:
LEDwholesalers 16.4ft RGB Color Changing Kit with LED Flexible Strip, Controller with 44-button Remote and Power Supply, 2034RGB+3315+3215

I had a spare cable that fit in the inlet plug for the AC power of the receiver which I used for this so I didn't need to sacrifice the original cable. The receiver (or power brick can't remember) says it uses 12v so I split the power cable between the receiver and AC brick and kept about 4-5 inches of cable, there's only a positive and negative. Stripped those cables and soldered (you could just heat shrink them together too) to a molex extension and that's it. Plugged it in and it worked. Took about 5-10 min to do.

I also was left with spare strip which I was able to reuse behind my television so I bought another receiver and use that as well. They all use the same controller so I am able to have everything synced up together.

u/hobguy7996 · 1 pointr/DIY

I bought a set of these LED lights from amazon a couple of months ago, they are VERY bright, they would be absolutely perfect for projects of this nature. The strip can even be cut and reconnected with wires if desired. This controller has a few different fade modes, and ability to make all the colors stay constant. With different controller types you can even connect to music, which would be nice,

u/wolfcry0 · 1 pointr/battlestations
u/vvelox · 1 pointr/DIY

Go crazy with PWM controlled RGB LED strips such as this.

I use those to light my home office. I made a large wooden square out of some pieces of 1x4, attached/ran the LED strip around the top of it a few times, and hung it from the ceiling so it reflected off the white ceiling. It makes a very awesome indirect lighting system.

u/Ursasaur · 1 pointr/battlestations

This LED kit. We used 2 separate kits so each of us can change our colors independently of one another.

u/asa1 · 1 pointr/pics

Just went shopping for one. Color Changing Led Strip with remote. Looks like it will be very entertaining.

u/benjisworld · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Finding a gift that someone will keep for life vs something someone will use for life is certainly a difference but still BIFL.

For example, I have this awesome yellow rubber, magnetic gecko that is stuck to my fridge. Everyone that comes over notices it and plays with it. Totally useless for any practical purpose but something I'll keep on my fridge for a long while (next to my London Underground logo magnet).

Other "useless" things I always display are digital photo frames, my British flag, and LED lights (

Useful stuff I always keep around includes a quality precision screwdriver set, a good utility knife, and a high power LED flashlight. I also carry a thin wallet that I'd never replace with another type.

Condoms can be a type of BIFL item as just one can save him from a lifetime of regret.

u/myniqqas · 1 pointr/gamingpc

Heres the led strip:

I used corsair's CUE software to link the colors of my keyboard and mouse to be the same. (K65 lux RGB keyboard, M65 rgb mouse).

The LED strip came with a remote which I use to change the colors and brightness as well as the mode (it has pulsing/breathing mode and a strobe mode). I usually set the color as violet, to match my keyboard, mouse and computer.

Heres my computer:

u/BreakfastBeerz · 1 pointr/homeautomation

What about something like this... Looks like a simple 4 conductor RGBW.

u/Embrocate · 1 pointr/EnterShikari

They were about $30 for 16 or so feet of LED + Remote and power supply. Here's a link to where I bought it:

They have a setting that will either flash through multiple colors or fade through them. The remote also has the option to quicken or slow the transitions! It's really cool. :)

u/xRehab · 1 pointr/somethingimade

Well I was on here about a month ago asking for advice on building a liquor cabinet that mimicked what the bar I worked at did. I had found these lights on amazon

and decided to pull the trigger. For $33 I figured I couldn't go wrong and it was well worth a shot. Picked up a cheap bookcase from Big Lots for $30, and about 2 hours later this was what I had pulled together. Turned out way better then I expected, the colors look amazing and the bottles in the cabinet look even better then I had hoped. Have already blown a few minds down here at Uni with this, and I couldn't be happier. Also, whats better then leaning across my bed and making myself a drink without even putting pants on? seriously, this is the life.

TL;DR - I just feel like sharing my little creation as it turned out AMAZING

Hereis the Amazon equivalent.

u/bretstar · 1 pointr/battlestations
u/Phoenixx45 · 1 pointr/battlestations

I bought them on Amazon. They have both shorter and longer strips if you so desire.

u/magroski · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Well, you have 2 options:

  1. Buy a kit like this one and install it on your room. There are some that come with a controller so you can turn it on/off and change colors.

  2. Instead of buying a LED strip adapted to a power outlet, buy one adapted to a molex and plug it to your PC PSU. If your case have those rubber holes for watercooling, wire the strip through there or through one of the slot shields from the back of the case (like the one you removed to install your GPU) and that's it. It will turn on/off together with your PC.

How do you feel about adding LED lighting? Such as this. You could attach this to the underside of the desk or the back of the monitors.

Or what about upgrading your monitors? You could get a nice 4k monitor. My only other suggestion would be buying a new desk.

It's something I've always wanted to try and make. Here are some technical details.

Here are the LEDs I used and the wiring diagram I used to control the LEDs with the Pi. I eventually figured out how to turn the volume of the guitar into a numeric value by following this post. Next I very poorly coded a foot switch to turn the lights on/off and change the speed at which colors randomly change.

I eventually want to solder it all up and put it in a nice enclosure so it is travel/gig worthy. It was a fun challenge.

NZXT actually sells a little sleeved light strip that comes in a few different colors for like 10 bucks which plugs into your power supply, They also sell the Hue which is RGB customizable, but that won't work with the H440 as it comes with a 5.25" controller.

There's also RGB led tapes that you can buy such as this one

I bought this and plugged it into a smart outlet

LEDwholesalers 12-Volt 16.4-ft RGB Color-Changing Kit with Controller and IR Remote, Power Supply, and LED Strip in White PCB, 2034RGB-R2+3369+3208

One nice thing is that it returns to the last color when turned back on. You can probably find a cheaper option, but I've noticed the super cheap ones don't usually have a power supply... So keep that in mind

I used this one and doubled it up. I folded it in half, didn't crease it just made a U in the one end, then sucked it thru with a vacuum.

If they are like the ones I buy they are adhesive-backed. Still, I tend to use small Command Adhesive hooks to hold most of my LED strips.

Thanks for the reply. Can you comment on products such as this

Keep the CD drive unless it's an old IDE one. The GPU should be fine if you're happy with it, and it's easy enough to replace.

If that's a high-quality 800W PSU, then keep it. If it's a cheap one (like a Raidmax or something) buy a new, high-quality unit.

I've reused hard drives quite extensively. If it's not fast enough for you, supplement it with an inexpensive SSD (notice I did not say cheap).

I have a Thermaltake commander in black, and it's pretty decent for a cheap case. They styling is not everybody's cup of tea though. It's small enough to carry, and available in white. Any mid tower case will be smaller than the one you have though.

If you're handy with a soldering iron, you can buy RGB LED strips on a roll for not very much money. Something like this: If you're not handy with a soldering iron they make connectors for those as well.

Something like this?

u/_feffers_ · 1 pointr/somethingimade

The price fluctuates pretty often. Anywhere from $16 to $30+.

Buy something like this and stick the lights to the back of the tv. Then use the remote whenever you want to turn them on/off or change the color.

You can get ROLLS of remote controllable LED lights online. My husband and I use them for lighting our computer cases for instance. Just do a little research in the reviews to make sure people have a good experience with their safety and longevity for the price.

If you are looking for an easy solution around 100 to 200 give philips HUE a try? You can control with your phone and they have a couple of products that provide ambient lighting. and this and they have lots of other hue products too.

You could build up a crown moulding with a small shelf before the ceiling then line it with rope lighting to create a lit ceiling.

You could buy a couple of lamps from ikea, craigslist, marshalls, tj max, home goods, then put lower wattage lights (40w or 25w) in them on the 2700 (warmer) side of the spectrum. Dimmable lamps would be a plus just make sure the bulbs are dimmable too. They could be standard lamps, wall mounted plug in lamps, pendants you plug in then hang from the ceiling or even something more zen like a salt lamp:

You can put any pluggable light on a remote with a light switch remote. They can be pretty handy... Or the clapper lol.

u/MrImSoCool · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

probably something like this or anything similar.

Just look through this and find the best one for you

u/calotron · 1 pointr/battlestations

I believe it was this or very similar to this... There are a lot of options when it comes to these strips. We wanted an RGB one, the remote is nice too...

Looks to be 5050 LEDs; maybe a different size but 5050 is common.

You should apply +12V to the + wire (white) and 0V to the R, G, and/or B lines to turn on those colors. You could send a PWM signal to any of those lines to get variable brightness in each color.

On its own this LED strip won't do anything. You need something to drive it. There are various products on the market that will do this (e.g. this, which comes with its own spool of LEDs; may be compatible with your string of LEDs, may not be), or if you're into working with electronics then you could make your own device.

The cable is probably a 10 mm spacing header; maybe 0.1". Both are reasonably common and are parts you can source from Digikey, Mouser, etc, or you can just cut the cable and solder on your own connector.

Googled RGB LED strips...

That ain't so hard you know.
