How Decorative Light Covers Create a Stress-Free Environment

31st Jan 2017

With today’s endless hustle and bustle, get-up-and-go lifestyle -- consisting of a full-time job, family life and an attempt at a social life -- we all want to find ways to better relieve stress.

This need for a stress reliever may lead many people to make countless (pricey) visits to a massage therapist, while some even go so far as to seek a prescription medication in order to feel more relaxed and collected.

Unfortunately, options like these can be an expensive and sometimes dangerous attempt at a stress reduction solution, and one that could easily compound the stress-creating issues in your life even more.

However, there are natural ways to relieve stress at home, while, at the same time, creating an incredible focal point that is sure to transform any room into a jaw-dropping work of art; one that your house guests will appreciate. How is this achieved? By installing what is called decorative light covers.

What Are Decorative Light Covers?

Having grown rapidly in popularity over the last few years, decorative light covers are, without a doubt, an innovation when it comes to decorative lighting and can truly transform any room or space into a work of impeccable art and beauty.

Made primarily of a light diffusing panel, light covers go over any existing fluorescent lighting and display a wide array of images to create an incredible effect on the eye.

Although, they’re mainly used in homes, offices and businesses, fluorescent light covers are more-than-appropriate for any space you plan on installing fluorescent light fixtures in.

For instance, if your kitchen is extremely cramped and is without windows, then the smartest and most cost-effective solution is to install cloud-themed fluorescent light covers on your kitchen ceiling.

With these in place, the images of clouds and the blue sky are showcased whenever you or someone else walks in your kitchen, creating the exact same effect of a real skylight, without the huge cost and hassle of installing real skylights.

Now that you know what fluorescent light covers are, in order to understand how they’re the most ideal option when it comes to creating a stress-free environment, let’s explore Octo Light’s different options for light covers:

Tree Light Covers For Stress Reduction

It’s been scientifically proven, and backed up by thousands of people dealing with stress: nature, and the sight of nature, is one of the greatest and most natural methods for instantly calming the mind and making a person feel significantly more relaxed.

With this in mind, by installing our tree light covers -- which display gorgeous foliage including trees and other plant-life -- in your living spaces throughout your home, you’ll be provided with peace and tranquility whenever you spend time in these particular areas.

You should opt to install these light covers in a quiet space, where you already feel some form of comfort. This could be your bedroom, study, or even your living room. Wherever you decide to use these light covers, you’ll be eclipsed with comfort and be on your way to reducing the stress you build up throughout the day.

Waterfall Light Covers For Stress Reduction

Sticking with the nature-equals-stress-reduction theme, our waterfall light covers are just as useful in this regard as our tree light covers.

These decorative light panels display beautiful and palatial waterfalls in some of the most palatial areas in the world. By installing these on your ceiling or walls throughout your home, you’re ensuring you (or your guests) will be provided with a calming focal point, no matter where you are in your house.

Additionally, our waterfall light covers can be perfectly paired with peaceful decor and furniture items to create an awe-inspiring backdrop to any room and creating a faux window with a view that leads out to a constantly beautiful scene.

Custom Light Covers For Stress Reduction

While Octo Lights certainly has a wide variety of additional options for light covers that can reduce your stress -- including our ocean light covers (display vibrant fish and other sea life) and landscape light covers (display incredible mountainscapes), one unique option we give our customers is the option to create their own light covers.

Clearly, this opens up the realm of possibility in terms of creating light covers that perfectly display whatever imagery is most calming to you. This could be a light cover that displays a simple photograph from your childhood or even light covers that showcase calming art and graphics. The choice is entirely up to you.

Creating your own custom made light covers couldn’t be an easier process; you simply go to the Octo Lights ‘Custom Light Covers’ page, choose an image (based on our specific image requirements), upload your image to our website and then await an email from us in order to purchase your custom-made light covers. It’s that easy!

Easy to Install Eco-Friendly Decorative Light Covers

Not only are light covers from Octo Lights the most environmentally friendly light covers on the market (we use UV resistant, water-based inks for all of our products), but they’re also extremely easy to install, requiring no electrician or home improvement expertise whatsoever.

You simply go to our website and head over to our ‘How to Install’ page, which provides you with a quick and easy installation guide for all of our light covers.

Installation entails 4 easy steps, including opening tabs to unlock the light cover’s frame, gently lowering the frame itself, placing the light cover on top of the light diffuser (image side down) and finally raising the tabs to lock the frame into place.
