Kitchen lighting upgrades
If your kitchen needs an upgrade you should know that is an way to add a fresh dose of style and substance to the space.
A simple lighting change might be all it takes to upgrade the entire kitchen, even if you don’t have time to remodel. Lighting can be an inexpensive, but impressive way to transform the room in a couple of hours.
Under-Cabinet LED Light Bars
If you want to illuminate countertops and preparation areas, the ideal lights are these long and narrow LED lights. These light bars are installed on the underside of your cabinets and come in a wide variety of lenghts, so even long countertops can be fully illuminated.
Under-Cabinet Rope Lights
They can be discreetly hung underneath a row of cabinets with a set of rope mounts that screw directly into the cabinetry. Like LED light bars, rope lights are best used for countertop task lighting.
Decorative Flush Mount
If you want a kitchen new style you need to swap out the standard ceiling fixture for something with a little more personality. A fixture with decorative details with drum light and geometric cutouts.
If your kitchen has an island or breakfast bar, consider hanging pendant lights above it. Pendant lighting not only adds style to the space, it can also help anchor a kitchen island so it feels more deliberate in an open-concept home.
Puck lights are easy to install almost anywhere you need illumination. From under cabinets to inside deep drawers or in dark corners of the pantry. There are hardwired and plug in puck lights, but for the simplest installation opt for battery-operated LED pucks.
Cabinet lighting can be extremely practical for deep or dark cabinets, but added to glass-front cabinetry it adds a cozy, romantic vibe and highlights your best cake stands and wine glasses.
While installing rope or bar lights underneath your cabinetry can be a practical choice, installing them on top of your cabinets can create an ethereal, uplit effect on the ceiling that’s purely aesthetic.
If a single ceiling light isn’t cutting it in your kitchen, track lighting is an excellent solution. With a single ceiling junction box, you can install a track light system that will allow you to direct light wherever you need it most.
