The right kitchen lighting can change the entire look and feel of your cooking space and can be your kitchen’s best asset. Under-cabinet task lighting is one of the most important lighting as it is puts the light where you need it most, onto your workspace. It is not only functional but can also create the perfect ambiance in your kitchen.
Under cabinet lighting is great for illuminating areas assigned to a certain task such as the cleaning/sink area, food preparation area, cooking zone or pantry. Insufficient lighting in your cooking spaces can be a safety hazard as it can make food preparation difficult. Ensure you look for lighting options that provide adequate illumination to the darker areas in your kitchen. Take a look at these cabinet lighting options to ensure your kitchen lighting is practical yet impressive.
LED Light Strip
The most common task lights are an LED light strip, which is installed underneath the top cabinets to shine light on a cooking area or bench space. These lights are great because they can’t be seen, so they don’t distract from other features in your kitchen, but they provide you with enough light to get everything done. You can also get these light strips installed in your pantry so that they turn on when the pantry door is opened.
Illuminate your workspace with a more aesthetic option – round ‘puck’ lights. They can be positioned individually to shine light straight down on your workspace and are available in many designs to match your kitchen décor. Remember to position round lighting where it won’t throw shadows in your workspace, creating an even light space. Round lights are perfect for shining light on a focal point in your kitchen or placing pop of light on your bench top.
If you want light evenly across your bench space, go for strip lighting, otherwise for a brighter illumination with some versatility, round lights are an excellent choice.
