Installing lighting underneath your kitchen cabinets can provide you with many benefits. Having good lighting in your kitchen can enhance your entertaining and dining experience within your home. If your kitchen is a darker space in your home, you may want to consider adding more lighting all around the room. Here are some reasons why you should consider under cabinet lighting for your kitchen:
Under Cabinet Lighting is Energy Efficient
Under-cabinet lighting fixtures are typically composed of a small number of lightbulbs. It’s a more energy-efficient option than having recess lighting on the ceiling. It doesn’t use much electricity, and you can have multiple different fixtures instead of one that uses the same amount of energy.
A Low-Budget Lighting Option
Under-cabinet Lighting is not an expensive lighting option. If anything, it’s one of the cheapest options for additional kitchen lighting. All you will need are smaller light bulbs (LED bulbs are a great choice for energy-efficiency), some basic tools, and short cables. Since it’s an easy installation, there is a low chance you’ll need to have any help if you want to do it on your own.
Under-Cabinet Lighting Offers A Unique Look
If you don’t have under-cabinet Lighting, the only other option that looks good in a kitchen are recess lighting. You can still have the recessed Lighting, but adding another lighting element to your kitchen adds another element of style. Under-cabinet lighting can add a new look and feel to your kitchen and is an excellent option for at night. You can add as many lights as you want, or as few as you want.
Under-Cabinet Lighting Creates Less of a Shadow
Under-cabinet lighting casts light directly onto the countertops and whatever is on it. This helps eliminate a shadow and gives a better view of what you want to see. If you have many items tucked away under your cabinets, these lights are a great option to see your belongings clearly. Ceiling lighting doesn’t hit these areas of the kitchen very well.
Increase The Value of Your Home
You can do many smaller things to bring up your home’s value, and add under-cabinet lighting is one of them! Lighting is something that homebuyers look for, and having unique lighting can seal the deal.
These lights are very versatile and can provide a significant design element to any kitchen space.
