I have approx. 140' of rope lighting installed in my theater. I absolutly love it. In addition it gets a lot of positive feedback from people that go into the room for the first time. I have installed crown moulding 1.5" down from the ceiling that has rope lighting laying behind it. I have used it under my stage. I have also created isle lighting with it. It works well for undercabinet lighting too.


I purchased the majority of the lighting from a specialty lighting store in my town. I have also purchased some from Home Depot. There seems to be a difference in the product both in physical size and light output. The commercial stuff is much brighter and a whiter light. For my install, this was of no concern as I have all of them hooked into a dimmer. The lights are just to bright for me.


Great stuff. Good accent lighting. Creates a real neat effect when done properly. I dont have any digital photos, I will try to get some and post them if it will help.

Iv got rope lighs but I dont use em for HT. I use them around windows and outside, they look pretty nice. My mom got them from an online catalog, ltdcommodities.com.

I haven't any in the HT room yet. I have high ceilings in my kitchen, dinning and living rooms. I have white above my kitchen cabinets that illuminate the kitchen well enough to get snacks and drinks. Above my entertainment center, china cabinet and grandfather clock I have blue ropes that act as a highlight, but not are not bright like the white ones. I plan on using both white and blue in the HT area, as indirect lighting near the ceiling.


I bought them at Menards about a year ago or so.

Cain,


I currently use 25ft to border the top of my screen curtain, this I bought at Sams Club for about $14.00.


We were at Payless Hardware/Lumber a few weeks ago during their "going out of business" sale...I bought 5 more boxes for about $3.00 each!!! These I will use highlight my seating risers.


Sorry, no PICS of my theater, yet.

I have is snaked behind my RPTV and now only in luminates nicely, it also offers relief on the eyes when viewing in a dark room and a bright sceen pops up. It has been proven to stop headaches that these bright sceens may cause..

I was in Wal Mart the other day, and in the hardware dept, they had rope lighting in a blister pack for around 8-9$. I belive it was around 20 ft.
