A kitchen will look much better with well-placed under-cabinet lighting. It illuminates the room and creates ambiance. It also eases cooking, preparation and recipe reading.
Puck lights are singular, adjustable lights that are well-placed throughout the room. They are useful as night lights for midnight refrigerator raids as well as for reading. They are simple and easy to install. They have a variety of options depending on your tastes and needs, such as rope lighting, tape and bars. They can work using your power outlet or batteries and can come with motion sensors.
Rope Lighting and Tape Lighting
Rope and tape lighting can run along the entire length of your under-cabinets. They help you find your way in the dark or reinforce your overhead lighting. A variety of accent colors can spice up the look of your kitchen cabinets.
Lighting bars are a bright light source that covers a bigger area than puck lights. They aren’t as low-level and elongated as rope and tape lighting, though.
These styles for under-cabinet lighting come in LED options. They are energy-efficient and more durable than traditional bulbs. LED lighting can be programmable, controlled, and manipulated as well.
Motion sensors allow these light sources to turn on by themselves the moment you walk into the room. This makes them very energy-efficient. They tend to shut off if you stand still for too long, however. If you are too focused on reading a complicated recipe, it can get annoying. Still, the benefits of LED and motion sensor lighting far outweigh the inconveniences. If you’re particular about handling electrical items, go for a battery-powered lighting option.
