How you can use acrylic sheets

There are a number of ways that you can use acrylic sheeting to illuminate your space. The first is to get an acrylic sheet that actually has illumination built into it. Now there are many options for colours and light intensity to help you create the effect you’re looking for – whether you want a practical light to help illuminate a space or you’re looking for more subtle mood lighting.

This is a great option if you’re looking for the easiest method as you won’t have to think about doing any extra wiring or work to get it together, it comes pre-assembled and ready to use. Just choose your designs and preferences and then fix it where you want it – it’s that easy.

The other option is for you to use a plain acrylic sheet and affix your own lighting to it. This may afford you some more options in LED styles, colours, and flashing times. It may also allow you to have a broader selection of acrylic sheets to choose from in wider colour palettes and designs. This can allow you to create a truly individual mood lighting piece from scratch.

The only downside is that it will require a little more work from you to affix the LED strips on or around the acrylic sheet yourself and make it look neat. But if you’re a keen crafter it’s an excellent option for creating something absolutely unique.

Whatever path you choose, consider investing in additional acrylic sheeting illumination today.
