I want to put this LED strip in my room, which is a box shaped room with white walls.

enter image description here

I am sure I am supposed to hide the LED strip lighting, but I am at a loss on how to make a suitable coving or box to hide the messy strip bit. How would I do that?

Where in the room? ceiling? walls? Facing up or facing down. We need more information. – Craig Mar 23 '13 at 2:38

Cove or crown molding that is below (free from) the ceiling by 2-4 Inches will give a subdued look. I would place the strip on the wall just below the aperture of the molding (that slit exposed by lowering the molding). Some installations I've seen use a separate wall trim that angles the light strip up..IE attach a wooden strip behind and below the crown, attach the LED strip to the 45 block. enter image description here enter image description here
