Yes, you have the option to choose between waterproof and non-waterproof LED stripes, but how do you choose which one to get? The answer depends on where you are planning to install them. Generally, if you are using these strips inside your house or car, you should go for non-waterproof ones. Places like your kitchen cabinets, bookshelves, and walls are not exposed to water, so there is no use of getting waterproof LED strips. However, if you are planning to put them up in your bathroom for a bold and different look, you should go for the waterproof LED strips as the chances of water exposure is higher. Similarly, if you want to install LED strips outside your house to give your railings, decks, or patios a prominence, always go for waterproof ones.
