This 16ft of lights is split into sections, making it great to start in a corner and go both ways. The colors are vivid and bright lighting up the room with no other light necessary, LED lighting strips are mulitcolored with a remote that allows you to use them with one color, 2 colors or even all 15 colors. Instructions are easy to read and follow for both instillation and the remote. The remote also gives you the option to make your own patterns of lights. Highly recommended and have actually purchased a couple more sets.
