Sky-and-cloud panels are a natural-looking form of ceiling décor suitable for any room in your home. Let's look at what sky-and-cloud panels are and how they can enhance any ceiling. Many people who have used them would never use any other form of ceiling décor in their homes. So, first, what are sky-and-cloud panels?
What Are Sky-and-Cloud Panels for Natural Ceiling Décor
Sky-and-cloud panels are printed sheets of polyester installed above the diffuser panels of a fluorescent or LED lighting system. Most domestic fluorescent or LED lighting includes a framework with a diffuser panel to avoid bright, glaring light. In most cases, the frame comes off easily, and the sky-and-cloud panels slipped in between the diffuser and the fluorescent tube. Because the sky-and-cloud panel is backlit, it is displayed in brilliant saturated color when the light is switched on.
Decorative Light Panels Keep Your Children Amused
Sky-and-cloud panels are very popular as natural ceiling décor for children's rooms and nurseries. They can dim harsh fluorescent light and provide captivating views to keep your children amused until they fall asleep. Sky-and-cloud panels can display anything from bright blue skies with fluffy white clouds to dark starlit skies showing the constellations.
Alternatively, you can use images of flowers, waterfalls, or beach scenes—or use your own photos. Our custom printing service allows you to upload any picture you want printed on the decorative light panel. The images can be of your child's favorite toys or cartoon characters, a photo of parents looking down at them, or anything else you might imagine.

Where Else to Use Sky-and-Cloud Panels
Sky-and-cloud Panels are an excellent way of decorating an office or other commercial premises with natural ceiling décor. They are popular for ceilings in corridors of hospitals and other medical settings where a natural sky is soothing and helps to keep patients' minds off their condition.
They are also popular for dining rooms, restaurants, or even your own hallway. Sky-and-cloud panels look as though your hallway ceiling opens directly to the sky outside. You can mix night and daytime sky scenes by running them on separate circuits, each with a dedicated light switch. You can then switch between night and day as you please.
