To say you can design your own sky would be a step too far for anybody. The sky and the universe are what they are, and you cannot change that. However, you can design your own sky-and-cloud panels to display on your ceiling. If you are a photography buff, you can take your own photos of the sky to display as sky-and-cloud panels. Or you could upload a completely different image to create custom decorative light covers.
All you need to design your own sky-and-cloud panels is a decent camera, even the one on your phone, and a good view of the sky. If you enjoy astronomy photography, you could send us your homemade night sky images. We will convert your photograph into a sky panel your visitors will gasp at. And if you aren’t into taking pictures of the sky, we can use any image you send us. You could make decorative light panels with family photos, nature shots, or anything else you could dream up.
Sky-and-Cloud Panels Offer Day and Night Sky Views
Sky-and-cloud panels are views of the sky at day or night. Our standard selection includes pictures of a bright sunny day, blue sky and white clouds, and a night sky, with stars and constellations for you to gaze up and marvel at. If you know your constellations, you could point out the ‘W’ shape of Cassiopeia or the unmistakable shape of the Big Dipper. You can show your children how to find the north by identifying the North Star. You can do this in their bedroom using a sky panel that displays that part of the night sky. And every once in a while, you could slip in a different sky panel to teach them something else—maybe the names of other constellations.
Sky-and-Cloud Panels Are Easy to Change
The great thing about these panels is that they are easy to change. Simply unscrew one side of the light diffuser panel, pull it down just enough to slip in the next sky-and-cloud panel, and you are all set. Sky-and-cloud panels have many educational uses. You can take your own photographs of the various cloud formations (cumulus, cirrus, nimbus, stratus, etc.), and we can convert them into sky-and-cloud panels for you.
Most fluorescent and LED light panels come in standard sizes—generally 1 x 4, 2 x 4, and 4 x 4 feet. These are Octo Light’s standard fluorescent light cover dimensions. We can print your photographs onto a flexible polyester sheet in one of the above sizes, or we can cut them to custom sizes.
Popular Decorative Light Covers
Sky-and-cloud panels are the most popular form of decorative light covers. That’s likely because they show you what you don’t expect to see when you look up to your ceiling. Most people expect to see a white or otherwise plain ceiling. A sky-and-cloud panel shows you a very realistic view of the heavens—so real that it may easily be mistaken for skylight showing the sky above.
Sky-and-cloud panels are very popular, and little wonder. They look fantastic, they are inexpensive, and they are easy to install. You can also have decorative light covers created for you using your own photographs. What more can you ask for with ceiling décor than sky-and-cloud panels?
