Silver Post Medal for All Time! 255 Posts

My husband and I just got a new bed and it is slightly bigger, just enough for me to run into it during my middle of the night bathroom trip. A night light in the bedroom keeps my husband awake. So, my solution was to get a string of the LED rope lights in a soft white color. I ran it under the bed, along my side. This provides just enough light for me to find my way back into bed without running in to it. I just follow the light and stop when I get to it. And, since it is under the bed, it doesn't shine towards my husband's side to wake him up.

When my children were smaller, I had a rope light that ran from their bedroom door to the bathroom door. Each bedroom had a different colored rope light so they knew which one to follow to get back to the correct bedroom. This works well for elderly people as well, to provide enough light to find their way at night when they don't want to turn on a bright overhead or don't have an outlet in the right place for a night light.

What a brilliant idea! This is great when you have overnight guests who have to use the bathroom at night and have no idea where it is in the dark!

Great solution for most people but as a home health aide I would never advise this for elderly people or anyone with impaired vision or people with mobility problems. In these cases I would use night lights and never anything they could easily get entangled with.

Maybe in this case putting them along the door trim would work though. Good idea!
