Cabinets add functionality to any space in your home, especially your kitchen. Another important feature in several areas of your kitchen is the lighting. With under-cabinet lighting, you can provide adequate lighting to your kitchen for the space directly underneath your cabinets.
As the name suggests, under-cabinet lighting is a type of lighting installed under your cabinets, commonly installed in the kitchen, that allows you to utilize your counter space better. Under-cabinet lighting serves three primary purposes in the kitchen which include:
Increasing safety– Proper lighting can help reduce the risk of common kitchen injuries such as knife cuts or burns by helping you see better.
Providing ambiance– Many under-cabinet lights come with a dimming option, which allows you to create a variety of moods within your kitchen space.
Making tasks and function easier– In most homes, cabinets are positioned over countertops for easy access to food or other items while you are cooking while also providing convenient storage. Under-cabinet lighting can help to highlight the space under the cabinets to make it easier for you to see the area.
When considering under-cabinet lighting, it is essential first to understand your options. Under-cabinet lighting has a variety of LED options that are energy efficient and low voltage and are available in a variety of colors as well as neutrals and naturals that can complement your kitchen.
This type of lighting can also be wired in a way that does not include intrusive wires, providing a streamlined look. They can also be custom-fitted to your cabinets to ensure the best fit and functionality to meet your needs.
