If you are the owner of a custom kitchen, you should be aware that Houston cabinet lighting services by Illuminations Lighting Design represent a very unique genre of kitchen interior designs available nowhere else in the city. Concealed lights can be positioned over, within, and under cabinets to showcase both their interiors and surroundings. A wide range of color temperatures allows designers to choose fixtures that contribute maximum aesthetic to colors and carpentry patterns of individual cabinets.
Most cabinet light fixtures feature a linear design that attaches to a cabinet surface and directs light in an intended direction. Ideally, these fixtures should be completely concealed from view in order to prevent them from diminishing the aesthetics of interior design. Viewers will see only the cabinets themselves, illuminated in a variety of ways that contribute accent, mystique, and functional visibility to the scene.
Houston cabinet lighting services by ILD makes it a point of policy to use only fixtures that can be concealed from every possible normal vantage point. This ensures that no matter where a person is standing in the kitchen, they are not going to see the equipment itself, but only the light that it produces.
It is also important to realize that when only a portion of a cabinet is illuminated, it can potentially imbalance the aesthetic of kitchen design. Cabinets should be illuminated from three vantage points in order to appear properly showcased. Over the cabinet lights should be concealed along their top surfaces to light the walls and kitchen coves above. Under cabinet lights should illuminated ornate countertops beneath. Interior lights should generate a field of light that bathes cabinet contents in luminance.
It is a matter of policy that ILD’s Houston cabinet lighting consulting services match custom fixtures to all three areas of each of your cabinets. This allows everything in and around your cabinet to appear proportionally lit with an ambient light that has something of a gentle, transfiguring effect on your cabinetry.
These custom linear fixtures are highly proprietary in nature. Manufactured by a specialty designer with whom we have a partner relationship, they are actually custom built to the specific dimensions to illuminate antique cabinets. A wide range of color temperature choices are available from this manufacturer, which allows us to use the warmest light possible for traditional, formal hardwood builds and a more crisp, cool light for contemporary cabinets featuring a more eclectic color and design.
This makes our Houston cabinet lighting services quite possibly the most individualized of their kind. Nothing is done until cabinetry is thoroughly examined, and the lights themselves are literally built to the very structure and size of each specific cabinet. In fact, when new homes are constructed, our team frequently works directly with cabinet designers so that our lighting systems are built directly into the cabinets themselves at the time of constructions. Retrofit cabinet light fixtures are also available to add to existing kitchen designs any time homeowners want to bring a new aesthetic into one of the most visited rooms in the home.

It is also the most cost effective way of creating superior aesthetics with energy efficient LEDs that require negligible power to operate.
