Ample lighting is a must for any kitchen – big or small – as it enhances the space’s look, feel and safety. The problem with most kitchen lighting is that it often gets in the way or takes up some much-needed space that you would otherwise fill with your other kitchen essentials.
In this post, our kitchen experts at Handyman Connection of Butler Warren discuss why you should try using under-cabinet lighting to solve your kitchen’s lighting needs.
It’s Seamless Lighting
The main advantage of under-cabinet lighting is that it’s well-hidden from view. Unlike permanent lighting fixtures that get in the way of your activities in the kitchen, these are installed flush to the rest of your kitchen, under the cabinets. Even installed in their hidden location, they provide ample and strategic lighting for your kitchen.
Easy to Install
Under-cabinet lighting is also easier to install than your usual lighting fixtures because of its size – often as small as the palm of your hand. Additionally, only a little tweaking to the cabinets is all it takes to install them.
Under-cabinet lighting is “targeted” in a sense that the light it gives is restricted to a certain part of your kitchen, which you can tweak according to your needs. This kind of lighting is the perfect choice if you want mood lights to establish a warm and comfy atmosphere in your kitchen space. Targeted lighting is also better for illuminating a specific area, and is more energy-efficient, too.
They Can Run on Batteries
The best part about under-cabinet lighting is that you can get the type that runs on batteries, which can save you some time from an otherwise tricky wiring project in your kitchen, not to mention help you save money on your electric bills.
