Date Published: June 11th, 2021
Over the last few years, gaming has changed from a fun hobby to a full-time job for many streamers. Gaming setups are no longer drab and hidden away. Instead, they’re elaborate and colourful with LED lighting, state of the art gaming accessories and so much more. When it comes to gaming setup lights, top trends for 2021 include RBG LED lighting kits, which can light up your whole gaming room in an array of colours, and hands-free lighting such as Alexa geared products to really enrich the gaming experience. Below is our definitive guide to gaming setup lights for any budget.
LED Strip Lighting
One of the major gaming setup trends for the past few years has to be LED Strip Lighting. Available in a range of styles and colours, these lights can be customised to fit your desk or room and can be easily installed by anyone.
When added around the room’s ceiling, these lights can create a luminescent glow that requires very little additional lighting. If you opt for a colour changing LED strip lighting kit, you can change the ambience to match your mood.
