I am getting ready to finish the basement in our new house and I want to put the LED strips in crown molding around the gameroom. How far down from the ceiling do you guys recommend to allow good light throw? The ceiling is at least 8' if that matters. My wife thinks 4". I have seen some as close as 1" and as far as 12". For those who have done this, what do you recommend or would have done differently and why?
Here is a pick of the plan. The kitchen is actually a wetbar with a fridge where the stove is. The piano is a jukebox. The program didn't have icons for those. Lots of storage in this house.
