Moulding Designed for LED Lighting

Of course, I find this a week after I installed my crown moulding.

Murphy's Law.

Luxxus is the name of the product line. There are some rather interesting (and attractive IMHO) designs. Makes my Home Depot's selection look as boring as a pile of rocks. If you want to have a look, there are ~313 different choices (perhaps more).

The Luxxus model C362 is one of the versions that appears designed to support (and conceal) a LED strip.

Did I mention it's ~$6.50 per lineal foot???

If you want a deeper/wider space to hold your LED up lighting, check out their model C351. It will only set you back $11.15 per lineal foot + shipping. No big deal, right?!

Alright.... I know what you're thinking. Where's the eye candy???

The C362:




And the larger C351:




You'll find variations of the C351 as well that are slightly wider/taller/more ornate. Click the thumbnails below for larger pics.

Well I thought I had my crown picked out until I just saw this! Back to brainstorming I guess. Thanks for sharing

A few of those C351 profiles remind me of rain gutter.

one thing to keep in mind is that when you run molding for a indirect lighting there is no law that says it has to come in one piece from the factory. You can create your own design. Start with a rectangular stick then add something to create a front lip.

At those prices I'll stick with modding trim with a table saw to conceal a 1/4 wide LED strip.

Yes. This is what I settled on. And much cheaper than these prepped solutions. I have to find time to post pics and update my build thread quite a bit. In a nutshell, I used baseboard + crown to create the effect I wanted on the side of my soffit, and then used a smaller height crown piece on the very top (for appearance and also to hide the DW seams).

The concept of these crown mouldings designed for this purpose is pretty cool tho IMHO. The company has some very nice looking moulding designs of other types as well. Albeit, they are all relatively expensive. I'd personally rather spend my $ on other things for the build.

One of the projects I had in mind, when I bought my Track Saw with a 4' track and added an 8' long track. I can join tracks to cut long runs safely.
I can layer up profiles, and work angles over long runs of wood. Joints can be staggered with this approach, so one can create very long
runs of molding this way.

Narrow but deep, slot load molding is also on my radar, for perimeter down lighting effects, with a cloud type ceiling.
