If you are looking for restaurant lighting, LEDs can help with creating an amazing atmosphere for customers.
picking out the correct lighting for different spaces can be challenging, with the choice of white light against RGB/RGBW and various different watts you can find exactly what you need.
There are many different LED products and techniques that you can use in your restaurant lighting design. Let’s take a look at what would be the most useful.
Using LED strips in restaurant lighting design
– how and where
LED strip lighting can be used to highlight specific areas, or to create striking divisions and borders. This can be achieved either by ‘hiding’ the LEDs (positioning them out of the audience’s direct line-of-sight) so their light falls onto a surface creating a glow effect, or by mounting them in plain view.
What colours & white lights can I use in my restuarant?
We offer LED tapes in a wide range of colours and brightnesses. Choose from:
Ordering and installing your LEDs
Ordering your LED tape pre-cut makes building your stage or set easier.
Send us a list of the lengths you need, or a sketch/diagram, and InStyle’s technicians will cut and solder your LED strips to the exact dimensions. We’ll also attach custom-length starter lead cabling and flexible corner links if required.
You’ll receive your order packaged and labelled by area/zone, for an easy installation. There’s a wealth of helpful support info on our website, and if your electricians need more advice then our LED experts can talk them through any issues.
• When ordering white or single-colour LED strips – you’ll need a compatible LED power supply too
• When ordering colour-control LED strips (RGB / RGBW / CCT) – you’ll need a compatible LED power supply + an LED receiver + an appropriate controller for your LED colour palette
What brightness should I choose?

As a guide, if you are adding highlights / feature lighting, these LED tapes should be your first choice
- 5W / 10W products (if using white or single-colour LEDs)
- 7.5W / 10W products (if using RGB/RGBW colour-mixing LEDs)
- 12W dual-white LEDs
These recommendations apply to InStyle’s commercial-grade Epistar-branded LED strip lights. For lower-grade strip lights from elsewhere, adjust accordingly.
