So I have my set up done just wondering if there is any lights or something to put above it so it's not so plain

What I did was buy a product like this. They make several different versions, lengths, you can even buy them in a roll and break off what you need where. The hardest part about setting these up is running the power supply somewhere it's not noticeable. I ran mine along the ceiling of my basement so I just ran the power cord down the corner of a wall into an outlet.

Of course if that's too much set up for you, they do make LED accent lighting "pods" that are battery powered and you can essentially put under or on anything you want for a nice glow effect.
The reason I prefer the strip lighting is because it looks so much better when you cant actually see where the LED is coming from.

Another thing to consider would be decorative stuff that has accent lighting built it, if you need to fill empty space.

Good luck!

LED strips are for sure the way to go, very inexpensive on Amazon and there's loads of different choices.

I put in a smart bulb into my ceiling light and sometimes will have the colors change in my room, making the whole set up feel complete as well.

If you're adding LED's into your setup, please add some that compliment your setup and not overrule it. For example, if you already have a strong red theme throughout your setup, there's no point getting a red LED set because it'll be so overwhelming and would just look bad.

If you're going with an RGB set, make sure you grab yourself an RGBW so that you can choose it to a proper white if you so wish.
