Vaccum Packing. If you have seen those compressed pillow, where the pillow is flat, but becomes fluffy after the bad is opened.
This is like that, for packing stuff:

The bags have some sort of seal. The air can sucked out with a hand pump or a vaccum. Lots of videos on
amazon Rs 700

Youtube also shows DIY methods using a vaccum, without having to buy anything :

Make sure whatever LEDs you buy have "warm" setting.
Tinkering around with RGB values can also get you warm white but its not the same.

I think you shud stay with LED bulbs, Else you can get LED Batten from Havells which has 2-Tone options, Both Warm White and cool white And batten is thin and light. Because LED strips dont Last long, Those can be used in fancy decoration. I used them in my Dining room, lasted me only 9 months, and went dead, with some LEDs having less Brightness.

You can otherwise Go with Phillips Hue, As they have Good LED strip offerings, and should last longer, but is V. Expensive.

They are extremely overpriced On Amazon India. In banggood, no one is delivering to India. AliExpress too has similar issues.

Stickable Whiteboard sticker thing - Oren Empower Large Self Adhesive Sticker Price in India - Buy Oren Empower Large Self Adhesive Sticker online at Flipkart.com
Rs. 150- 300 2m x .5m . Lots of variety online some are even longer at same price. I am using just half of the 2m I bought.
I love this. Bought a couple of days ago. Its a plastic sheet stickied on wall and can be used as a whiteboard. Write with sketchpen, wipe with dry/wet tissue. Has replaced stickynotes in my room. Finally a todo list that works for me!

Edit: Tissue erases completely. In my case it brought down the paint when I tried to remove it. But on better quality plastic paints it may be removeable
How to properly stick it on wall -

Is it removable? Like will it also remove the paint like tape does to wall?
Also Does the ink of the marker completely erases or some left over is there on it after erasing?

I had been looking for something like this but could not find one...

LED Bulbs/Tubes also dying in a year or 2. Not those SMD/COB LEDs but those driver (mainly capacitor). Those who know will repair or replace driver and make it work. Most people throw not working bulb to bin.
I mentioned this because I used 2-3 year old Philips LED Tube's strip in the kitchen. Driver was damaged (capacitor), so removed that driver and connected with Mi charger 27W. Now LED Tube's Strip working fine.

If you have still have that LED strip check the adapter, driver then try replacing it with charger.

I purchased 10 LED Injection Module locally, SMD for ₹10 per module and COB for ₹20 per module, 12V
Let's see how long it will lasts.

Ya, those bulbs don't last long. I fixed a bulb from Eveready, one of its LEDs had died so just bypassed that one.

Actually the strip I bought was rs.20/m with 15 LEDs/m. Bought during Diwali, died after 4-5 days. I used it 10-12 hrs/day. But good quality ones from Phillips should last. Like Philips hue ?

That cap mainly dies because they need to use one with higher volt. Capacity. Usually they are rated 80-90volts, but if they had used 250-230 bots one, it would give no problems. Maybe size is an issue here, as it takes more space...
