LED Strip Light Recommendation for Front Room Installation
I am looking to light my front room with an LED Light strip, preferably 1 power source for my front living room (79 feet total). The room has 10 feet high Barrel ceiling with a piece of trim 8’ up the wall. I wanted to run the strip around the entire room on top of the trim (5/8 inch thick) and use a diffuser strip, maybe V-shaped. There are eight 45-degree angles (the fireplace pops out 1’). Need dimmable, very bright (95+), and perhaps able to change color although the dimmable super bright white is most important. Would prefer to have it wired to a light switch on the wall and a remote to control the colors. Interested in the multicolor or just white?
Based on the details provided, it appears that the installation area would require five 16.4 ft reels of our LED Strip Light products.
As a starting point, it might be helpful to know that our LED Strip Lights have maximum combined lengths of 16.4 ft for the 12V version, and 32.8 ft for the 24V version. As each foot of LED Strip Lights uses 5.5W, we generally recommend one dedicated power supply per full reel of product.
For a multi-color installation, we recommend the FilmGrade™ FiveSpect 5-in-1 LED Strip Lights, which can be combined with the DMX Dimmer and Decoder as well as a third-party DMX Controller for the adjustment of each color channel.
If a single-color white LED Strip Light is preferable, we have many options that can be powered by the TRIAC Dimmable Power Supply and easily connected wall dimmers and smart home systems. For residential installations, we often recommend the 2700K or 3000K options of the CENTRIC HOME™ LED Strip Lights for Home & Residential.
As can be noted in the LayoutMap below, multiple TRIAC Dimmable Power Supplies can be connected to the same dimmer so long as the maximum amperage is not exceeded.
We will want the white only dimmable strips. As bright as we can get 24V. Looks like we will need 2 of them and will need 2 power sources. Ran into one dimmable strip. You didn’t mention the V-shaped track with a cover that disperses the light as not to see the individual LED lights. Do you carry those? If not, how wide are the LED strips?
We, unfortunately, do not have any V-shaped tracks, and we do sincerely apologize for any impact this may have on your installation planning.
Currently, we have both the flat and corner version of the aluminum channels available, which are able to accommodate the 10mm width of our LED Strip Lights. That said, third-party manufacturers such as Klus Design appear to have many other form factor options available.
