For this design, you will need three main materials: tube lights, laminate flooring planks and wooden studs in order to create the space between the wall and the planks. The tools you will be working with are: “a screwdriver, a saw, a level, extra strong mounting glue, screws, some hook screws or special nails to guide tubes and possibly some nails or tape to help the glue on the first planks dry properly.”

To begin with, drawing the outlines of the project on your wall, so you know where everything is supposed to go. Drawing a line where the light tube will be and be careful with your decision, because you need to be able to see just the indirect light, not the tubes whether you sit in bed or admire it from the bedroom entrance. For the best results, draw the lines at average eye height. What to do next: “Guide the light cable along the inner line you drew by holding it with hooked screws or cable guiders. The power cable of the light tube needs to connect to a power source so the location of that end of the wire can be important. Therefore you might want to start guiding the tube from that point so you always know the power cable can make it to your power source.”

After the lights are up, you need to mount the planks on the wall and cover up the lighting mechanism: “Saw the wooden stud in random parts and spread them evenly over the wall where the planks will have to be glued on. (We left a part untouched to keep the option of mounting in an LCD screen in the future). How you secure the studs on your wall depends on the material your wall is made of. Usually screwing them on will do. Make sure they are secured tightly though. Follow the instructions with the laminate flooring planks and saw them where necessary. Probably the best way to do this is by building the whole ‘floor’ flat on the ground. ”

“Once you know the lengths are right and the connections are all on the proper side you can start gluing the planks to the studs. Start off with the bottom planks and make sure they are perfectly level. The bottom planks might be put to some force once you start pushing the upper planks on them to connect, so make sure the glue is dried before you put force on those bottom planks. To hold the planks in position while the glue hasn’t dried yet you can use tape to secure it or hammer some (temporary) nails underneath the planks to hold them in position. Once the bottom planks are secured you can just ‘click’ in the other planks and glue their backs to the studs. Connect the power and the project is done!”

If the light shows at the end of the planks use painter’s putty to seal the project and don’t forget to enjoy your finished work!
