What is over cabinet lighting used for?
There are plenty of different types of indoor lighting available, and so you may be wondering why over cabinet lighting is a good choice. Over cabinet lighting will not only add extra brightness to the room, but will add targeted illumination to key areas like kitchen counters. This will give you visibility where you need it the most, offering a number of benefits in the home. Over cabinet lighting is commonly used in the kitchen, as well as above wardrobes, and to highlight displays.
Overhead cabinets are extremely popular in kitchens, so installing over cabinet lights will ensure your food prep areas are brightly lit. You'll soon find that you're able to chop, blend, and grate with ease!
Over cabinet lighting also works well when it comes to creating the right ambience. You can use these lights to highlight different displays or collections in your home, or to create more atmosphere. A lot of people also attach overhead cabinet lighting to their wardrobe, so that they can see inside their dark closet with ease and have a great space for getting dressed.
Choosing the best over cabinet lighting for your home
When you’re choosing over cabinet lighting for your home, it’s important to carefully consider what you want and how you will install it before committing to a purchase. Before you begin to browse for over cabinet lights, think about the following:
- Fitting Style. Do you want a modern LED light fitting such as this T-Bar over cabinet light, or a more traditional model?
- Dimmable or non-dimmable. Would you like the option to dim your over cabinet lighting? If so, you will need to choose a dimmable over cupboard light fitting which will be compatible with a dimmer switch.
- Size. Do you want the over cabinet lighting to match the width of your cabinet, or a smaller fitting which is more similar to a spotlight?
- Installation. Consider what else you will need to install your new over cabinet lighting. For instance, will they be mains-powered, or will they require their own LED power supply? Do you want additional accessories like a dimmer switch or motion sensor? Ensure you have all these ready to hand before booking an installation, or your new lighting set-up is likely to be delayed.
The benefits of over cabinet LED lighting
When you are looking for over cabinet lighting, we definitely recommend choosing LED lighting. There are a number of benefits when you choose LED lighting for your over cupboard lights. For instance:
