A challenge for most builders is lighting custom cabinets. Retail linear light fixtures are usually designed for use in standard dimensions. This means that they will not fit into antiques, antique reproductions, or high-end display cabinets found in large homes. Due to their lack in directional control and spillage, these lighting fixtures rarely provide enough light when placed outdoors. This would be more common with project designs that are based on today’s energy codes for outdoor spaces like patios and decks where guests often entertain at night.
The residents of these homes typically own a variety of fine furniture pieces. These include breakfronts, secretaries and bookcases as well as armoires. These antiques and true-to-form antiques cannot be lit by standard linear retail fixtures. To illuminate these cabinets, a carefully planned action must be developed. Expert consultation is required to ensure that the specialized equipment is created. These rare and beautiful items are often not stored in their own rooms due to small living spaces.
