are the led strips on the bed new? how's the illumination - gentle night light, okay to read by, or holy cow is the sun in here? (aka, could, potentially, one person read by them but another still fall asleep? or, for my not-ADHD but close enough sleeping issue, are they bright enough to help with waking in the morning?) and how were they to install? they seem mighty complicated to me when I saw them in store, but maybe that was just the box.
Oh friend, this baby can fit so much illumination in it. *slaps headboard*
The LED strip is new, to replace the fairy lights I had that finally started to break. The strip is by Kasa and it's app-controlled. So at night, when I'm lying in bed but not yet ready to sleep, I have it set to a nice orange at 30% brightness:

That's a preset I programmed; I picked the color and intensity and then set it to come on automatically at 7pm (I turn it off manually when I'm about to sleep). The white oblong thing at the corner of the bedsheet is a switch to turn it off in case the internet goes down or the app that controls it doesn't work. You can only set color and brightness through the app, but it's just a plug-in set of lights so you can turn it on/off at any time.
In the morning, I might wake up and bump the lighting to a cool 50% purple while I play a few phone games and get ready for the day:

And if I oversleep, my alarm goes off at the same time it flicks up to 100% white light:

You can get super granular with it; brightness from 0 to 100%, there's a massive color picker wheel, and you can also set it to animate if you're feeling super disco, with several pre-set color animations. You can schedule numerous on-offs throughout the day, each with a specific color and brightness if you so desire.
The LED strip comes with one power cord/switch, it's trimmable, and it's adhesive, so it's literally just a tape I stuck to the headboard, plugged in at one end, and then cut the end off of when I ran out of headboard.
Now, if you trim it, you're left with a strip of LED tape that doesn't have a power cord, which is less than ideal, and last I checked it was tough to get a power cord without a new tape strip, but it's been 100% worth what I paid to have a fully controllable disco headboard. Super easy to install, relatively inexpensive, hooked up to the internet no problem, and the app is highly intuitive. The only hesitation I had, which has not proved an issue, is that there are open contact points on the strip, so if you touch the strip in certain places your body alone powers up the LEDs around where you're touching. But I've sat up in bed with pillows pressed against it, the cats have scentmarked it (though not clawed it), and it's been probably five to six months with no adhesion or power problems.
Anyway, Kasa LED strips, can recommend. I also have one on my curio cabinet that lights up every morning, and I'm strongly considering getting some for under-cabinet lighting in the kitchen.

Berlin architect Axel Schultes was not permitted to make structural alterations to his turn-of-the-century home. Instead, he devised movable “towers” - industrial shelving on casters.
