If you’re looking for a contemporary design element for your kitchen, then look no further than the world of kitchen under cabinet lighting. These lighting choices produce a stylish and sophisticated finished effect. They are also easier to choose and install than you may initially think. Read on to find out more about this flexible design element that can give your kitchen the finishing touch it deserves…
What is kitchen under cabinet lighting?
Kitchen cabinet lighting is, as the name suggests, lighting that is placed the underneath kitchen cabinets and counters.
The idea behind this kind of lighting is simple: it looks good. In standard design, kitchen lighting can be rather unpleasant. Unlike any other room in the house, kitchen lighting is predominantly provided by harsh, overhead lights of a bright temperature. This kind of arrangement might be suitable for cooking. For ever-popular kitchen/diner and open-plan arrangements, though, it is far from ideal.
Our kitchen under cabinet lighting is designed to provide the best of both worlds. All the lighting that you need, but without the need for overly-harsh overhead lights. The atmosphere is vastly improved by the use of this kind of lighting. However, you still have enough light to ensure you can prepare meals in complete safety.
As you would expect, most under cabinet and under counter lining is placed under cabinets and counters. This allows for unobtrusive lighting choices that are suitably subtle, which is pleasing on an aesthetic level. Don’t underestimate the power of these small, often-unseen lights, though! They are LEDs, which means they can provide brilliantly bright light as and when required.
What forms of lighting are available?
Essentially, under counter and cabinet lighting works however you want it to. You have complete flexibility when you choose from our range of products.
The most common form of under cabinet lights are circular; these are often referred to as “spotlights”. They are most commonly affixed beneath overhead cupboards. These lights provide directional light onto the work surface and countertops. This way, you have all you need to prepare food, but without the need to flood the entire room with light. These lights can be recessed, so they sit flush against the base of the cabinet they are attached to. This helps to achieve their sleek, modern, functional look that has proven so popular over recent years. We offer LED link lights. These can be placed anywhere you feel extra light is needed in your kitchen.
Wedge lights for maximum convenience. The direction of the light can be all the more controlled with the unique shape of these innovative lights. Furthermore, the angled wedge gives a more contemporary feel to the overall look.
The lights above are primarily used for domestic residences, but this is far from their only use. In fact, retail stores and other businesses may find this kind of directional, unobtrusive lighting incredibly beneficial. The options we offer in this range have also been used as display cabinet lighting. Their sleek design and powerful brightness is able to ensure displayed products are shown at their very best in that setting.
Whether you are looking to use our range of under cabinet lighting for business or residential purposes, we’re sure these lights won’t let you down.
What other features are available with this form of lighting?
While it is possible to achieve the kind of impact this form of lighting offers through battery-powered devices, this is far from convenient. With battery-powered under cabinet lights, you are likely to struggle with brightness. You also have to withstand the cost of continually replacing the batteries.
To combat this, we have taken the time to source and supply under cabinet and under counter lighting that can be integrated with the mains electricity. This allows for complete ease of use, and ensures that your lights will always be bright and cost-effective to use.
As well as providing a range of mains-compatible lights, we have also taken the time to ensure we offer a variety of temperature options. Our kitchen under cabinet LED lighting options can be purchased in three different temperatures:
Day light. As the name suggests, the temperature and brightness of this light mimics natural daylight on a bright, sunny day.
Warm white. This kind of light is similar to the kind of light produced by the old incandescent bulbs. It is a warm, cosy light that is a great choice for open-plan homes who do not want bright, stark lights in the kitchen area.
Cool white. If it’s illumination that counts, cool white is definitely the best choice for you.
With mains-power compatibility and a range of temperature options to suit all preferences, we’re sure we have the perfect lighting options for you.
