Under Cabinet Lighting
Under cabinet lighting is a crucial component for designing a functional kitchen lighting scheme. Countertops are often sheltered from overhead lighting by cabinets or range hoods, and the low profile and sleek composition of under-shelf lighting make these fixtures uniquely suited to this area. LED lighting is recommended for its long lifespan and energy efficiency. Because of the unique way in which LEDs produce their shine, they don’t emit any heat. This is perfect for the kitchen, which is often the warmest room in the house because of high-traffic and appliances like ovens and stoves.
The most traditional type of under-cabinet lighting is the classic, recessed lighting style. This light is completely contained within the bottom of the cabinet and hidden when not in use. Under-cabinet puck lights are great for floating shelves because they offer wireless options that don’t interfere with an airy look. There are also LED rope light fixtures composed of a strip that can be run along the bottom lip of a cabinet. These lights have an easy installation process and create a seamless shine across the length of the cabinets. Supplement these fixtures with pieces like pendants, island lighting, wall sconces and ceiling fans to have well-layered and functional lighting.
Under Cabinet Lighting FAQs
Q: How Many Lumens do I Need for Under Cabinet Lighting?
A: In kitchens, delicate, precision tasks are performed. For this reason, fixtures should produce somewhere between 200 and 400 lumens.
Q: What Color Light is Best for the Kitchen?
A: A kitchen needs both task lighting and ambient lighting. With kitchen lighting, a bright task light is needed. Warmer temperatures can make things appear dull, so get a light that falls somewhere between 3,500K and 4,500K.
