Strip lighting has become so popular that we can see its applications everywhere. From decorating your bedroom with multi-color strip lights, accent lighting the interior home decor, indoor-outdoor signage, backlighting, to even making the custom-designed task lighting fixtures.

 

But, is the installation that simple or do you need professional help even for small projects? People try to buy the strip light kits online and try to install themselves as it comes along with the adhesive backing and the power supply has its own female connectors. However, one should know all about strip light connections before buying the kit. It is a bit more complicated than simply sticking the lights onto the surface.

Although soldering is the best and most durable way of connecting strip lights, it requires knowledge, patience, and experience to avoid any damage to the LED strip and not to forget the tools and materials needed (Soldering iron and soldering wire)
