To say you can design your own sky & cloud panels to display on your own ceiling would be a step too far for anybody. The sky and universe is what it is, and you cannot change it. However, you can take your own photos and have these displayed as sky & cloud panels, or decorative light covers, onto your ceiling.
All you need to do this is to have a good camera, and know to use it to shoot a good view of the day or night sky. If you take astronomy seriously, and have your own telescope with a camera facility attached, then all you need to do is to take your photo and send it off to us. We will convert your photograph into a sky panel you visitors will gasp at.
Sky & Cloud Panels Offer Day and Night Sky Views
Sky & cloud panels are views of the sky at day or night. Our standard selection includes views of a bright sunny day, with blue sky and white clouds and also a night sky, with stars and constellations for you to gaze up and marvel at. You can likely do better. If you know your constellations, then take your own photos of the simple ‘W’ shape of Cassiopeia, or the unmistakable shape of the big Dipper, known as the Plough in the UK.
You can show your children how to find the North by identifying the North Star, otherwise known as the Polestar or Polaris. You can do this is their own bedroom using a sky panel that displays this part of the night sky. While they are off to school, or playing themselves if they are below school age, you can slip in another sky panel to teach them something else – maybe the names of other constellations.
Sky & Cloud Panels Easy to Change
They are easy to change. Simply unscrew the one side of the light diffuser panel, pull it down slightly – just enough to slip in the next sky panel – and you are all set. Sky & 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 & 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 all in feet. These are Octo Light’s standard sky panel or fluorescent light cover dimensions. We can print your photographs onto a flexible polyester sheet in one of the above sizes that can use in any way you wish. There are many unique ways of doing this. Incidentally, if your light panels are of different dimensions to the above, we can cut them to meet your sizes.
Popular Decorative Light Covers
Sky & cloud panels are the most popular form of decorative light covers. That’s likely because they show you what you expect to see when you look up to your ceiling – or perhaps not! Most people expect to see a white painted or otherwise decorated ceiling. A sky panel shows you a very realistic view of the heavens – so realistic that it may easily be a hole in your ceiling showing the sky above.
Sky & 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 regard to ceiling décor than sky & cloud panels?
