How Do Fluorescent Light Covers Work?
So how does it work? Let’s assume you have no fluorescent or LED lighting in your home – or maybe perhaps only in your kitchen but that’s another subject. If you are having your home built or are renovating your existing home then set up fluorescent lighting system in your dining room.
You could lower the ceiling a few inches by installing fluorescing lighting tubes and then covering the entire ceiling area with frosted light diffusion panels. It doesn’t cost as much as you think, and the finished result is amazing. You’ve probably seen in offices where the lighting is evenly distributed through diffuser panels across the whole area of the ceiling.
Be Inventive with Custom Decorative Light Panels
Octo Lights decorative light panels are a standard 2ft x 4ft size, although we can manufacture them to your own sizes at an extra cost. They are decorated in a large number of patterns and designed, including photographs of natural scenes. They can also be fashioned using your own photographs.
For example, you could be inventive, plan ahead and offer your dinner party guests unique view of your menu. “Today’s courses can be seen above your heads folks. Just look up and view each one” – and there above them your guests can see each dish shining down on them from the ceiling!
A bit over the top perhaps, but you get the idea. You can have any image printed onto a light lens and placed over one or more of your fluorescent light panels. You can have your family at various stages of growth, or some of our standard range of sky & cloud panels showing a bright summer day or a starry, starry night.
Standard Light Lens Images

We have a wide range of standard images, otherwise known as light lenses, printed with your own images or photographs. They are flexible, and can be slipped above the diffuser panel so the image is backlit by the fluorescent lighting tube or LED units.
You can have a bright sunny day today, a starry night tomorrow, and the next day you can show off some of our spectacular waterfall images – make your guests duck when they look up!
