Under Cabinet Lighting
If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you know how important it is to have cabinetry lighting. Under cabinet lighting is one form of kitchen cabinet lighting that makes your space fully functional and adds an element of style to the room.
If you’re looking for kitchen cabinet lighting, you can choose between two main types of under cabinet lighting:
- Task lighting is under cabinet lighting that is installed beneath cabinets found directly over the kitchen sink and countertops. This type of kitchen cabinet lighting is used mainly to improve the functionality of your kitchen, but it can also enhance its beauty.
- Accent lighting, on the other hand, is under cabinet lighting that serves as a finishing touch to your kitchen design. Used mainly for aesthetics, this type of cabinetry lighting is a great way to highlight your granite countertops or kitchen backsplash, among other things.
Over Cabinet Lighting
Over cabinet lighting is another form of kitchen cabinet lighting that adds more light to your kitchen. Used mainly to add ambience to the room, over cabinet lighting can make your kitchen feel more inviting by making your ceiling glow—and it can add the illusion of height, which is ideal for small, cramped kitchens. This type of cabinetry lighting can also serve as a night light to increase safety, which is especially useful if you have young children.
Over cabinet lighting usually consists of small, uniform lights placed subtly over cabinets or entertainment centers so they can’t be seen. LED rope lights tend to be popular in over cabinet lighting because they preserve energy but can be left on for as long as you’d like.
