Don’t be floored by the idea of LED plinth lighting

LED Plinth Lighting is becoming more and more popular these days, especially in kitchens where a kitchen island can be beautifully highlighted with the addition of LED Plinth Lighting along its base board.

This also has the effect of highlighting any beautifully new tiles or flooring that may just have been put down and can, in fact, make the flooring area appear to be larger than it really is.

Another bonus is the atmosphere that can be added to a room with just the plinth lighting left on.

Why is LED plinth lighting the best form of plinth lighting

LED is the best form of lighting all round these days – thanks to the fact it’s so energy-efficient and relies very little maintenance due to the fact that LED bulbs will last up to 10 times longer than their incandescent counterparts. And, of course, because of this, they don’t need to be replaced as regularly.

What does a plinth lighting LED kit consist of?

You’ll normally get anything from a minimum of four right up to ten bulbs in a typical plinth lighting LED kit. These will be accompanied by a transformer. In the case of our square shaped plinth lights these are finished in silver satin and come with a 1.5 metre wire so there’s quite a bit of leeway for the distance between each bulb.

The lights are available in a selection of three colours – white, warm white or blue and can also be bought as circular (rather than square) lights in brushed chrome. The manufacturers suggest that the average burning time should be around 30,000 hours.

Other uses for LED lighting in the kitchen

Of course it’s not only on a plinth that LED can play a part in our kitchens. Under-cabinet lighting is extremely popular in kitchens today (probably more so than LED plinth lighting). This is because it doesn’t just serve as ambient light when placed under cabinets, but can also be described as task lighting since it helps us when we’re cutting up vegetables or measuring out ingredients (here at we can personally testify that without it we’d be hard-pushed reading recipe books sometimes!).

How about you? Have you used LED lighting in your kitchen in an ingenious fashion? If, so we’d love to hear about it!
