Cabinet light is ideal as task lighting in the kitchen, bedroom or bathroom. You can illuminate kitchen worktops for food preparation, stage beautiful cabinets and light up dark corners with cabinet lights.
Cabinet lighting areas
The cabinet areas that lighting can be installed in include the following:-
Under cabinet lighting is primary used to illuminate kitchen worktops or counters to provide light for food preparation areas (such as cutting up vegetables and preparing meats). Under cabinet lighting can also give out a softer light in bedrooms or bathrooms to assist with daily tasks.
In cabinet lighting can also be used as shelf lighting to assist with finding items within the cabinet. This is particularly important if you have darker coloured cabinets or your cabinets are situated far from other lighting.
Under worktop or under counter lighting is used as decorative lighting in the kitchen or bathroom. Under worktop lighting can break up the worktops and cabinets to add a pleasing aesthetic to the room.
LED tapes tend to be used as continuous lighting when it is used for cabinet lighting. We have a wide range of LED tapes including IP Rated LED tapes (which be used in the bathroom or near the kitchen sink), CCT tapes and RGB tapes (to display different colour temperatures or colours) as well as dotless tapes to provide a completely dotless tape appearance.
Available in square, wedge, rectangular, triangular and round/circular shapes, our range of cabinet lights features mains powered, SMD, COB and much more. The cabinet lights also range in terms of wattages and size to ensure you customise the light exactly to your room. These can be recess or surface mounted, depending on the light chosen.
There is no right or wrong cabinet lighting choice when choosing for your rooms. This is usually down to the customer or designer’s decision. However, you should take into account the following:-
What style of lighting is desired
Strip lighting is more suited to more modern style kitchens, such as those that feature handle-less drawers. The continuous lines of light product by LED tape match perfectly with the linear style designs in a contemporary kitchen.
Spot lighting tends to be more suited for traditional kitchens where lighting is placed in individual areas rather than in continuous lengths. It is also the more cost-effective form of cabinet lighting for instances where keeping a tight budget is important.
This again is often linked back to what style kitchen has been selected. A modern kitchen which lends itself better to strip lighting is more suited to a natural white 4000K colour temperature, whereas traditional kitchens can often look better with spot lighting and a 3000K warm white colour temperature to match.
An absence of natural light means that areas such as worktops will lack illumination and will therefore require cabinet lighting that makes up for this. Or LED rectangle panel lights or 9.6W LED strip are perfect for this issue.
What colour worktops have been chosen?
Darker worktops will absorb light so for instances where they are being used, it is again important to choose cabinet lights that produce as higher light output as possible.
