My son has a loft bed, and he uses a lightstrip to illuminate the space under the bed (where his desk & computer are). He's put it along the framework of the bed, near the "ceiling" of the under-bed space.
I also have a lightstrip in my bedroom, it runs vertically along the edge of my built-in wardrobe (where the wardrobe meets the wall), to illuminate a dark corner.
My only regret is that I didn't buy diffusers for my lightstrips. As for a bridge - we already had one because of our hue lightbulbs & lamps.
