I think depending on the style of house, it can be fun.

Some cool examples:


Modern Hall

Echo Beach

Master Bath

Lighted base mold - use a 1/2 colored wall blocking and face it with 1/4" plex LED light strip behind

Set down Crown with continuous LED strip on top lighting the ceiling

One I've used this one too on a couple tray ceiling up lights - two switched duplexs that allow colored LED Christmas tree lights on color per switched plug socket.

Create a linear ceiling light by having a copper screen wide rectangular mesh 3" wide and 6' sections with led strip lights or led Christmas lights lying on the screen. Run them all the way down each side of the hall.(1) code duplex in the ceiling joist to plug them into. (could be done on wall floor intersect or as trench up lights.

Here is one that is a little labor intensive: When using 12 x 12 tiles (carpet, wood or cerramic place floor boxes under 12 x 12 plex (translucent stone)tiles inserted in the pattern each box contains a switched duplex into which you can plug Led Christmas lights

I think it would be really interesting. I think if it's not done right, it will look like the lower lighting in a movie theatre!
