I'm updating the V berth on our 40 footer, as part of that I am going to update the lighting
. The current cabin
has wood sides, which makes it a bit dark.(see image).
I am thinking I might add either LED strip to the thin wood panel that runs down either side of the cabin
ceiling. There is a small lip where the fiber glass meets the wood strip to hide the LED so you get only the indirect light unless right underneath, which of course you would be if lying on the berth. (see 3rd pic). Also with some LED strips if you can see them, it looks like a series of lights, rather than a continuous strip.
The second option I have thought of, which might look a little more "classy" is two LED down lights on either side, hopefully going for a look like the far right pic.
