How to Use Under-Cabinet Lighting to Enhance Your Kitchen

Installing under-cabinet lighting fixtures in your kitchen can improve the ambience of the room and help make recipe-reading, ingredient preparation and cooking easier. This minor kitchen remodeling project is affordable and can give a major boost to your kitchen’s beauty and functionality. Handyman Connection of Chattanooga explains more below.

What Are the Benefits of Under-Cabinet Lighting?

Under-cabinet lighting focuses light onto the countertop. The added illumination that’s focused where you need it the most makes preparing and cooking food easier. Since the light is confined to a single area, you’ll be able to see details better. Under-cabinet lighting also adds warmth and sophistication to the space. The large variety of available lighting options makes it easy to find the perfect product for your home. Adding under-cabinet lights to your kitchen is affordable and convenient as well.

What Are the Different Types of Under-Cabinet Lighting?

When choosing your under-cabinet lighting, keep in mind that different light bulbs can create completely different lighting effects. Some of the most popular types are xenon, halogen and fluorescent bulbs. Additionally, under-cabinet lighting comes in different configurations, depending on your specific needs. Rope lighting and ape lighting look good as runners across the entire length of your cabinets. They provide an even and low-level light source. You can also place puck lights strategically throughout the room. These lights work well as night lights.

Lighting bars are another good option because they are a bright light source that can cover a bigger area. You can further customize your under-cabinet lighting by choosing different accent colors or by using LED options for greater energy efficiency. You can also get motion sensors, so you won’t have to worry about accidentally leaving your under-cabinet lighting on.
