Whether you want to wow friends around the TV in the living room, create ambience in the home cinema, add a little style to your bedroom or even kick things up a notch in the gaming room, an LED light strip is a great budget-friendly way to add a distinctive style to your space.

Neon lighting and colourful LEDs are a huge home trend at the moment, as they allow you to transform any space with the addition of light. So now you can effortlessly match the TV's glow to the furniture, or even to the content on screen for a more immersive viewing experience.
