Is your bathroom floor looking dull and boring? Do you think it needs some extra sparkle? If you want to turn your bathroom floor into a starry night sky, then don’t worry because the following will show you how.
If you have ordinary handyman skills, then this project is tailor-made for you. After acquiring the required equipment you need to set about planning the exact location of the lights. Next, take the fibers and bundle them and put them below the tiles.
Of course, you should know how to lay the tiles; otherwise, your project might not work out right for you. Once you have laid the tiles, you can then think about trimming the fibers and terminating them in the right manner to ensure that the floor will light up properly.
The nice thing about this DIY project is that it is easy to use fiber optics because they are essentially just rods of plastic that resemble an ordinary fishing line. When you shine light in one side, the light will come out the other side even if you bend the fiber.
Before you actually start your DIY project, be sure to do a trial run as it will help you understand what you need to do and why you need to do the grouting and why managing the fibers properly is helpful in getting the project finished properly.
You need the following equipment to help you complete the project:
- Suitable bathroom floor
- Source of light
- Scissors and a hot knife
- Sparky tape
- Cable ties
- Material to tile a floor
Next, make a plan and remember that you do not need to lay the tiles like professionals do. After laying the tiles, lift the fibers and peel them back out of sight.
Next, do the grouting and remember that you don’t need to do the grouting too professionally. Terminate the fibers with the help of a very small gland. Once this is done polish the tiles and switch on the lights. Your bathroom floor will be turned into a starry night sky. See all the photos and the full tutorial here: instructables.com
