What can I say, I’m a big fan of Nanoleaf. Sure their products can be expensive especially if you’re buying several kits at once, but you can’t deny that they look good on your wall. I first started out with a set of Nanoleaf Shapes, of which I connected nine hexagon shapes together, but now Nanoleaf has released their Lines kits, and I’ve got to say, these are definitely my favourite, and I think they’re Nick’s too?

So the Lines. What are they? Well, they’re 26cm straight lines instead of shapes and can be configured in a number of ways on your wall using a small control box and connectors. The setup here is very similar to what we’ve seen before with Nanoleaf in which each line connects to a small connector that carries power between the Lines, and you can make a number of patterns, depending on your style. Me, I’ve wrapped them around my shelf on my set, and I must say the final effect looks absolutely awesome.

Now I will point out now as you’ve probably seen some b-roll shots already, that I’m using a total of 20 Lines on my pattern. Nanoleaf does state that you can use a maximum of 18 before you need to add another power source, but I didn’t know this at the time of setting up my Nanoleaf Lines, and they seem to be working and all Lines have been detected by the Nanoleaf app.

There are a couple of packages that you can buy to get you started. Well, there’s one package and some add-ons. The main kit is the Starter Kit that costs ¬£179 on the Nanoleaf website and will come with 9-Lines, eight connectors, one controller and a power supply kit. There’s an expansion kit that comes with an extra three Lines and connectors, and finally a bundle for 18-Lines which costs ¬£296 at the time of making this video.

Each connector has some nice adhesive pads on the back so you can stick them to your wall. I’d recommend having some kind of plan in mind before actually creating a pattern though as once the pad is stuck, it could ruin paintwork if you’re constantly removing them. Also, there aren’t many spare pads in the box if you make a mistake. Also, as these are lines, make sure you have some kind of spirit level too, as this came in handy while I was measuring out my pattern on the wall and enabled me to keep the lines straight on the pattern I was trying to make. One thing to consider too, right-angles aren’t possible here. You might not need to make a square, but just warning you.

The setup of the Nanoleaf Lines on the app was actually fairly simple, but had a bit of a hitch with what I was trying to do. Remember I said I’m using 20 Lines? Well, this was an issue during the setup phase as the Lines could not be found by my WiFi network, even though it was powered and cycling through the various colours. I had to remove two Lines, get the Lines hooked up to my network, and then add the last two Lines back. From here, I could set a scene, add it to a room set up in the app, and connect it to my Google Assistant to turn on and off with my voice. Take note too that Nanoleaf products can only be connected to a 2.4GHz network, so if your phone is hooked up to your 5GHz signal from your router, they won’t work.

And I must say the lighting effect coming from the Nanoleaf Lines is breathtaking. As I said, it’s definitely the best lighting product by Nanoleaf so far! And the best part is the white colour scheme really blends well with my light grey walls. The best effect I’ve found so far is one called Ocean, which fades between several shades of blue and some purple highlights but there are so many to choose from, and you can even create your own scenes too if you had a particular colour scheme in mind. Now I’m not sure about the maximum brightness, but these things are definitely bright enough to make some cool effects and to brighten my living room.

I think I’ve said all I need to about the Nanoleaf Lines. They’re superb. Okay, they’re a bit pricey, especially if you’re looking for a full 18-line or more pattern, but they do look absolutely sick on the wall. There are some skins you can buy if your paint or wallpaper is a little darker to blend the lines onto the wall, but wow, I am impressed. Definitely, the best RGB LED lighting product I’ve seen in a long time! I love them a lot.
