Plinth Lights & Kickboard Lights

Plinth Lights are the product to buy if you want to add depth, brightness and a touch of style to a room. They can be used in the bathroom, kitchen, or any other indoor spaces for a contemporary lighting effect. Plinth lights are versatile and subtle, yet hugely effective in giving any space the ‘wow’ factor without the need for major renovation.

Tucked away at the foot of your kitchen island, or in the kickboard below your bathroom sink, our range of plinth lights sit flush to your surfaces, providing a bright, crisp light without taking up any extra space.

At Simple Lighting, we pride ourselves on being one of the UK’s leading provider of LED lighting, for both residential and commercial lighting use. Shop our plinth lighting range for all-inclusive kits, as well as fittings of all shapes and sizes. Whether you’re after trendy, colour-changing plinth lights, or a simple, minimal cool white light for your kitchen, we’ve got you covered.

What are plinth lights

Plinth lights, or kickboard lights as they’re otherwise known, are small, recessed lights that are installed in your kickboards, skirting boards, or cupboards. Depending on where you place them, they can provide ambient light to an area, or even improve the safety of a shadowy spot.

They can be the extra touch of style that adds a modern feel to your kitchen, bathroom, or wherever else you decide to place them.

Plinth lights can be a great alternative, or accompaniment to traditional down or up lighting, adding another light source to help illuminate the room of your choice. As well as looking attractive, having a light source which is close to the floor like this can also help to reduce common accidents in the home, like slips, trips and falls.

The benefits of LED plinth lights

Having the right indoor lighting matters and while plinth lights are popular due to their decorative and mood-enhancing properties, they also bring a number of other benefits to your home or place of business. Here are just a few:

  • Energy-efficient and long-lasting. LED bulbs have been shown to be more energy-efficient than traditional light bulbs, with a longer lifespan, meaning it will be years and years before you need to think about replacing them. Not only does this save you time fiddling around to change them, but in the long run, you’ll save money on your energy bills, and on replacement bulbs too!
  • Stylish, and show off the best of your home. As well as being a beautiful lighting feature, kickboard lights can also highlight other attractive features in your home, such as a set of gorgeous bathroom tiles or the fine texture of hardwood floors. Small details like this can often be missed, but kickboard lights can highlight these underappreciated design features.
  • Extra safety lighting – especially in the dark! Plinth lights make ideal nightlights, and can make moving around the house at night both safer, and a little less scary! Having plinth lights softly illuminating the stairs or your landing can be really handy, and they’re a great choice for homes with small children.
  • Environmentally friendly. As well as consuming less energy and needing to be replaced less often, LED lights give off fewer toxins, no harmful UV, and are 100% recyclable once they reach the end of their lifespan. For kitchen or bathroom plinth lights that help the planet and won’t break the bank, LEDs are definitely the way to go!

Types of plinth lights

Our lights are pretty, practical, affordable, and easy to fit! Whether you want to add a touch of contemporary style to your kitchen, highlight that wooden floor, or gently illuminate a staircase, we have something to suit your needs.

We stock a range of lights for your plinths which will sit flush in a variety of shapes, finishes, and sizes, so you are sure to find the perfect lighting solution. Here are just some examples of the different types of plinth lights we stock at Simple Lighting.

Plinth light sizes and shapes

Plinth lights are available in a number of different shapes and sizes. You can choose from square, round, and even microdot light fittings. No matter how big or small your kitchen is, or if you prefer a traditional, or more contemporary look, we have plinth light fittings to fit every home, and budget. Browse through our selection, and pay special attention to the many finishes, unique designs, and features on offer.

Colour changing LED plinth lights

Our plinth lighting range also includes colour-changing, RGB plinth lights. These lights come with a remote control that allows the LEDs to change colour, so you can adjust them to suit your mood. However, if you prefer traditional white lighting, then we also offer more classic tones, including warm white, natural white and cool white.

Dimmable plinth lights

For further control over your plinth lighting, we also stock dimmable plinth lights. Dimmable plinth lights allow you to adjust the brightness of your plinth lighting, depending on the time of day, or the kind of task you’re doing. For instance, plinth lights can be a massive help when hoovering or mopping your kitchen floor! Lighting up those shadowy bits makes it easier to see spaces which might need a little more attention.

Bathroom or kitchen plinth lights with a dimming function can also help reduce your energy consumption, and save you money on your energy bills as you only use the amount of light that you need. Check out our selection of dimmable plinth lights at Simple Lighting today!

Plinth light and kickboard lighting kits

As well as individual plinth light fittings, we also have full kits available, which include everything you need to have your new kickboard lights in perfect working order. They fit perfectly onto any flat surface, to create a neat illumination where you need it the most. Our plinth light kits are easy to install as they come with a cable and transformer, allowing you to create amazing lighting effects with no stress.

Can you use plinth lights outdoors?

The plinth lights in this category are mainly for indoor use, as they may not have the correct IP rating to be used either as outdoor wall lights, or deck lights. Plinth lights are mainly intended to be fitted to indoor surfaces such as kitchen islands, skirting boards and below cupboards.

However, at Simple Lighting we do have a full range of outdoor lighting products, which have been designed specifically for outdoor use. The best lights to add to outdoor spaces, such as outdoor steps, are typically decking lights. Similar to plinth lights, they can be fitted low down, to provide ambient lighting or better visibility in your garden or outdoor patio area. However, unlike plinth lights they carry an IP Rating which means they are suitable for use outdoors.

If you’d like any assistance or have any questions about how to choose the best plinth lighting for you, feel free to get in touch with one of our lighting experts via our contact page We’re always on hand to advise, answer questions and help you get the ideal lighting set-up for your space.
