The best LED light strips are customisable, with pre-programmed modes and the option to choose your own colours. You should be able to cut the LED light strip if it's too long, and it should be easy to stick to your chosen surface. You can also choose whether you want to plug in your LED light strips or use a battery - and opt for remote control, app control, or voice control.
