Under Cabinet Lighting Ideas

If you’re looking around your kitchen and wondering what changes to make, you might consider refacing the cabinetry or completely replacing it all. While both projects will give your kitchen an attractive, fresh appearance, it might not give you everything you desire. If you’re unsure if either option will give you the look you want, start by looking at creating a new focal point — under cabinet lighting!

Adding Under Cabinet Lighting

While cabinet refacing is a quick way to achieve beautiful results, it may not be the best option for your circumstances. On the contrary, purchasing new kitchen cabinetry carries a variety of benefits, but that is a much more expensive option. While you can choose the exact style of cabinetry that reflects your personal taste and blends in with your home’s style, tying the room together with some light is the way to go.

To get started with under cabinet lighting, consider the following options.

Puck Lights

Puck lights can double as night lights throughout your kitchen space and home. These are best functional as singular, adjustable lights that guide you along with the kitchen or halls. Be sure to have these placed as strategically as possible!

Rope/Tape Lighting

Rope and tape lighting are both a great option for a low-level light source. Not only do they help you navigate a dark room, but they can also tie in overhead lighting as well. The bonus with this type of lighting is that you can choose from a variety of accent colors.

Lighting Bars

Lighting bars offer bright light and cover a much larger area than the puck option. While they aren’t as low-level as rope or tape lighting, it’s still a great option to illuminate a room.
