With a little LED lighting, any garden bench can become a unique feature. Whether you choose white light or colour-change RGB/RGBW lighting, you can create stunning effects outdoors.
LED lighting for benches is primarily feature-lighting, not main lighting. The aim is to produce an ambient glow in the evenings.
For this reason, we typically recommend low-power 12-volt LED tapes for this kind of application. (Dual-white CCT, only available in 24V, is an exception.)
Sealed for protection
Because they will be open to rain and the elements, LEDs for garden benches should always be fully sealed to IP67 standard. InStyle can supply you with fully water-resistant LED tapes, heatshrink-coated and with glue-sealed ends for complete protection. And, as always, we’ll cut each strip to exact length if you let us know the measurement(s) you need.
5-watt LEDs probably won’t require dimming functionality, but if you’re fitting brighter 10W LEDs then you may want to use one of our RF dimmer controls to adjust your feature lighting:
You’ll need an LED controller to manage the colour mixing, a handheld remote is a good choice for outdoor projects:
For even more white-light control, you may want to choose InStyle’s dual-white CCT LEDs. Our 12-watt CCT LED tape is an ideal feature-lighting alternative. And don’t forget that it offers you the option to select any shade of white light you want (by mixing warm and cool-whit shades).
Adjust your light’s tint through the day, for a different mood as evening comes. Using any of our dual-white remotes and wall controllers across multiple zones, you’ll be able to create stunning features in your garden / home.
These recommendations apply to InStyle’s commercial-grade Epistar-branded LED strip lights. For lower-grade strip lights from elsewhere, adjust accordingly.
