How Cabinet Lighting Can Help Your 2021 Kitchen Remodel
If you’re thinking of a kitchen remodel for your Houston home in 2021, you’ve come to the right place. It’s time for new ideas, and one thing that is quickly becoming popular in remodeling is beginning with revamping the lighting design of your kitchen and your home.
A singular overhead light illuminating your way in the kitchen is a thing of the past.
Modern cabinet lighting, whether interior cabinet or under-cabinet lighting, simply makes your kitchen seem more complete and functional. When task lighting and ambient lights are strategically placed in the kitchen, its just pops and comes together.
Interior cabinet lights are beautiful when installed in glass-front cabinets. It showcases your china, collection of glass, or even the antique tea set from your grandmother. Kitchen cabinet lighting makes the interior of your cabinets come to life.
Under-cabinet lighting has its own rewards. It offers more ambient light than overhead lighting provides but also does double-duty as task lighting. Not only that, it’s aesthetically pleasing to the eye. And when you or a family member decide a midnight raid is in order, adding a motion sensor to your under cabinet lights transforms it into a nightlight.
The Design Aspect of Cabinet Lighting in Your Kitchen Remodel
One rarely considers cabinet lighting or any form of lighting as an element of design or part of a kitchen remodel, but it is. However, in inexperienced hands, it can be a little tricky.
There are some DIY solutions that don’t require hardwiring. They’re usually battery-powered or plug into an outlet. LED strip lights offer cool lighting with bright illumination. LED strip lights are reminiscent of fluorescent lighting and offer instant brightness but will last much longer than fluorescents.
LED puck lights, on the other hand, provide task lighting and yield ambient light. You can easily place them wherever you want and use only the pucks you need.
Having said that, whenever it’s possible to add hardwired lighting, it’s a better solution. Why? Because adding lights during a remodel is more about design than illumination. And, it takes a highly experienced professional to carry it out successfully. Many DIY projects end up looking less pleasing than one hoped for.
Recessed lighting in the form of miniature models is fantastic for the interior kitchen cabinets. They yield low voltage and are attractive while creating a warm, concentrated area of lighting.
But, if you want to take your kitchen lighting design to its highest level, under cabinet lighting is all the rage these days. A professional lighting designer can offer you valuable advice to implement a lighting plan that will usher your kitchen into 2021.
Many homeowners believe that the only way to update their kitchen is to paint walls and perhaps install new cabinets. But, you’d be surprised just how much adding cabinet lighting will modernize your kitchen in 2021. Not only is it attractive, but it also adds more functionality to your kitchen.
While there are DIY lights like puck lights or strip lights, a hardwired lighting solution is much better.
