Unique applications of everyday lighting techniques. Look for uncommon ways to use standard lighting techniques. For instance, say you need a little illumination along a path to find your way to your destination. You could dot the path with pathlights or add some eyebrow lights to a nearby wall. Or you could make a bigger design statement. These artfully placed strip lights provide movement and interest to the night scene — as well as light the route to the front door. Take this same idea and give it a twist. Use flexible LED light tape or light rope to make sweeping lines of light inset in a wall, a patio or pool decking. Fashion a cover for the inset light tape out of glass tiles, a metal screen or custom-cut polycarbonate, or tuck the light source up under a built-in lip to finish the look. Don't limit yourself just to strip lighting when tweaking standard lighting techniques — dream up alternate uses of downlights, uplights etc. For instance, why not cut a pattern out of a piece of sheet metal, place it over an uplight and project shadow patterns on a wall? Ditto for downlights, only the pattern will dance on the floor. Caution: When modifying any light fixture, make sure the fixture doesn't overheat and cause a fire hazard.
