Strip lighting can create the most attractive lighting in a home or commercial property if done correctly. There are so many different types of styles and colours which can make selection difficult. I hope this article can assist.
Strip lights can produce between 100 lumens /metre and 3000 lumens/metre on a single row of strip. A light bulb or Downlight produces close to 1000 lumens. If you are using the strip light to light up a kitchen bench, bathroom basin or make up area, high lumens are very important. For decorative areas, lower lumens would be suitable.
LEDs/metre or DOTS Normally, higher lumen strip will have more LEDs/metre, 190 - 240, give bright and even distribution up to 3000 lumens/metre, however many lower output strips will have LEDs spaced out 30 - 60 LEDs/m which look uneven and unattractive
