Choosing the Right Brightness for Your LED Strip Lights

One of the very first stumbling blocks for our customers is to pick an LED strip light that’s not either too light or too dim. If we were to quote the lumen output (quantified luminance) of any one of our streak lights, it would be scientific, but that is likely to lead to much more uncertainty than required.

Our LED strip lights are instead divided into three major groups, based on their usefulness. This is very low glow, high glow and medium glow. You will be left blinded or darkened unnecessarily, knowing what you need.


The low-gloss LED strip lights are primarily built for decorative purposes and only provide adequate light for a limited, enclosed space. The interior of the cabinets and even the base of the shelves are typical applications. The sixty LED 3528, which produces 400 lumens per metre, is a good example of this kind of strip.

Medium luminosity LED Strip Lights provide even greater illumination, and although they can still be used in a decorative way, they provide sufficient lighting for the purpose. One of the most common applications for this form of light is the under cabinet lighting of the cooking area, providing enough light to illuminate work surfaces. The thirty LEDs 5050 that offer five hundred lumens per metre or maybe 120 LED 3528 that provides 800 lumens per metre is a good example of this sort of strip.


LED strip lights with a high brightness provide a significant amount of light for its limited size. This makes them ideal for many commercial applications or maybe circumstances where lights have to remain visible in the background environment. A few examples include shop front window displays and illuminations for the night club. The 60 LED 5050 gives 1020 lumens per metre is a clear example of the spectacular luminosity of the strip.


Band lights with smaller and fewer LED chips have much less light as a simple rule of thumb. The colour temperature also influences the perceived light source brightness because cool white lumens offer some light than bright white. It is worth noting that Owing to its brilliance, cool white in some uses, such as accent, is much softer than bright cream.


You have to ask yourself the following questions when choosing an LED strip:


-Where will the lights be used?


-How do I manage to do this??


-How dark is the region going to be?


-Want to work with my lights?


Typically, a dimmer switch is a simpler alternative.
