In comparison with traditional lights, LED lights, like led downlights are popular among consumers for cost-effective and safer. Traditional lighting systems provide glaring light with high amounts of electricity while producing an abundance of heat. LED can ensure a perfect illumination condition with less glare by consuming less energy and releasing less heat. LEDs can be installed in your home in special units and the lights can provide track lighting to highlight certain areas of your ceiling. Here we are willing to give you some tips on how to get your led lights in ceiling easily.

Step 1
Prepare things you will need, like fine point marker, stud finder, razor knife, keyhole saw, tie wire, wire cutters, string of led lights, caulk, damp rag, work gloves, safety glasses and so forth.

Step 2
You can choose a route for your decorative LED light rope. You can use a fine point marker to mark this path on your ceiling. Draw two lines that are parallel to each other that are spaced just far enough apart to fit the rope. If you want to have a convenient and large space to plug your new lights in, you are advised to start the path above an electrical outlet in the wall.

Step 3
Hold the activation button on your stud finder and drag the stud finder slowly along your pair of lines. Mark the ceiling each time the indicator light on the stud finder comes on and goes off to tell you where the ceiling joists are.

Step 4
Decide the spots where the stud marks on the ceiling are close together. Use the razor knife to cut through the drywall between each of these small gaps with your razor knife. Pull the drywall free of the ceiling in each of these areas. The tip of the blade of your keyhole saw should be pushed into the ceiling next to one of the lines. Push and pull the handle of the saw to cut through the ceiling. You should remove the strip of drywall between those lines after you cutting along each of the lines on the ceiling.

Step 5
Hold the LED rope in place inside of the groove you cut in the ceiling. Hold the rope in place by wraping tie wire around the LED rope at each joist to hold the rope in place. You can use your wire cutters to cut the wire to remove the excess actually.

Step 6
Put a bead of caulk along both sides of the LED rope. You can wipe each bead of caulk with a damp rag to smooth and compress the caulk. Before you using your lights, wait it to dry.
