If you’ve ever purchased a decorative fluorescent light cover from Octo Lights before, then you likely already know the amazing visual upgrades they provide. However, if you’re just discovering these innovations in decorative lighting, you might be wondering what they are and just where they would be of use the most.
Whether you’re looking to finish off the visual aesthetic of a bedroom, create more ambiance in a doctor’s office, or even want to make a cramped space in your home appear more spacious and vibrant, decorative light covers are the most ideal solution for you in terms of affordable, unique and eco-friendly decor.
What are Decorative Fluorescent Light Covers?
In order to understand where fluorescent light covers are most appropriate, you must first understand what they are.
Consisting of a light diffusing panel, decorative light covers are installed over any existing fluorescent lighting fixtures and display certain images to create an incredible effect on the eye.
For instance, if you were to install beach light covers — which display palatial sandy white beaches — on your living room wall, you will be creating a faux-window with a view into a tropical scene that you and your guest will swear is real. This is perfect for areas that don’t see much sunshine or warm weather, as you can pretend to be on a tropical island, even when snow is piling up on your doorstep in the winter.
While decorative fluorescent light covers certainly work great anywhere, there are a few areas in particular that we, at Octo Lights, highly recommend as an ideal fit for these incredible works of art.
Decorative Fluorescent Light Covers at the Office
As an employer, promoting a workplace that is as productive as possible should be at the top of your priority list.
Unfortunately, business offices are lacking when it comes to visual appeal and typically contain harsh fluorescent lighting that can actually discourage productivity and tire your employees’ eyes, making them less inclined to get work done and making them more groggy during the work day.
While you could always opt to install windows (for natural lighting) and enact expensive renovations to up your office’s visual appeal, these are unnecessary when you can use decorative light covers for the same effect.
For instance, you can install cloud light covers on your business office ceiling to simulate the look and feel of real skylights. This will not only look incredible, increasing your office’s visual appeal, but with intriguing focal points your employees will be energized during their work day, boosting their productivity substantially.

Decorative Fluorescent Light Covers For Your Home
Making your home stand out is no easy feat, especially if you have a limited budget to do so. Thankfully, with decorative light covers, any room in your home can have a unique focal point that will impress you and your guests for years to come.
Take your living room for instance: by combining our landscape light covers — which depict gorgeous mountainscapes — with an accent wall, you’ll be able to wow your guests as soon as they walk through your front door.
The same works for our ocean light covers and a tropical-themed bathroom that is equipped with existing beach-centric decor items (toothbrush holder, towels, shower curtain etc.). These light covers — which display vibrant fish and other aquatic life — can then be installed on your bathroom ceiling to give off the effect of being underwater with a stunning view of the surrounding marine life.
Decorative Fluorescent Light Covers For a Medical Office Waiting Room
In a medical office (such as a hospital, dentist or pediatrician office) the first thing your visitors will see is the waiting room before receiving much-needed medical care.
Sadly, medical offices today just aren’t equipped for stimulating patients visually and fail at creating a calming atmosphere in the process. While typical medical office lighting is clearly functional, as it allows doctors to clearly see their patient’s issues, it isn’t the greatest to look at and could even make your patients feel more uncomfortable in an already uncomfortable situation.
To remedy this, we highly recommend installing decorative light covers in your waiting room, specifically our tree light covers, which display vibrant and peaceful foliage. Nature is known to calm the mind, so it’s a no brainer why these light covers would work perfectly in a waiting room as a way to keep your patients completely relaxed before they receive medical attention.
Decorative Fluorescent Light Covers For Schools
As a teacher, you want to ensure your students receive the best chance possible to succeed in their academics. This means they need to make the most out of their in-class experience while at school, by being fully engaged in the classroom at all times.
Unfortunately, most schools, even today, contain dull lighting and decor that can make your students feel disengaged while in class and cause them to feel discouraged when it comes to giving their full attention.
With that being said, decorative light covers are the ideal solution for classroom lighting as they can be visually stimulating for your students while also tying in with the educational atmosphere any good classroom should have.
For example, if you’re teaching astrology, try installing our astronomy light covers — which depict jaw-dropping galaxies, nebulae and other star systems — on your classroom ceiling. These light covers will not only be a visual draw for your students, but will also give them a chance to see a visual representation of particular star patterns to aide them in fully understanding the subject you’re teaching.
