Under cabinet lighting can take your home’s lighting design from simple to striking. It adds another layer of light to your space by creating visual interest and lending ambience, and it can also make it easier to work by acting as task lighting.

2.Do you want task lighting, ambient lighting, accent lighting, or a combination?

 

COLOUR TEMPERATURE

Why Install Under Cabinet Lighting

· Additional Illumination:  Under cabinet lighting can complement the main overhead lighting. It can be especially useful in providing focused illumination on the work area and highlighting the backsplash.

· Elimination of Shadows:  Even with a bright overhead light, shadows may still form on the work area due to wall cabinets. Placing light under the cabinets eliminates these shadows, providing adequate illumination for your cooking and food preparation.

· Design and Ambiance:  Installing under cabinet lighting makes a big difference to the look of a space. Depending on the type of lighting installed, your kitchen or bathroom can attain a warmer, more contemporary or more futuristic feel. So if you are remodeling, consider adding a splash of style with under cabinet lighting fixtures.
