Kitchen cabinet lighting design requires impeccable attention to the building of the cabinet itself. Cabinets worth illuminating typically feature very unique, custom styles that must be studied first before they can be properly illuminated. It is also necessary to keep in mind that cabinets, as essential as they are to custom kitchen design, represent but one type of element in a room where many elements in relationship to one another create one of the most beautiful rooms in the home if it is illuminated correctly.
To ensure the best results, it behooves you to confer with Illuminations Lighting and Design if you are interested in the installation of cabinet lights in your kitchen. Our team specializes in some of the most unique configurations of proprietary equipment that will magnify not only cabinetry, but everything around your cabinets as well.
Your kitchen cabinet lighting solution should function like light itself. Plato made the observation that light itself is invisible. Technically, we do not see light. Rather, we see luminance and color, which are the optical effects of light. Similarly, the light within the interior of your cabinet should better focus your perceptions on the contents of the cabinet without the distracting presence of lighting fixtures or reflective glare. Light that shines from under your cabinet should illuminate the countertop below as a unique element complimentary and perpendicular to that of your cabinet’s façade. Over the cabinet light should contribute accent to the ceiling of your kitchen. This transforms general overhead lighting into a multidimensional expression of many layers of light.
ILD cabinet lighting consultants specialize in kitchen cabinet lighting designs that create all three levels of effect. In some instances, it may be appropriate to light the interior of the cabinet, or the counter beneath it, more than other areas. This is always determined on a case-by-case basis during consultation with the homeowner, and with full awareness of the motifs of interior kitchen design that must be magnified in congruence to the specialty lighting effects we are creating.
You can also expect the very best results from kitchen cabinet lighting upgrades that allow you to adjust the level of light at will. This involves more than simply dimming the lights in your cabinet. For best results, we recommend that you allow our experts to integrate your kitchen lighting into a more comprehensive custom home lighting design tied to advanced lighting controls. These controls can raise or lower entire groups of lights as well as individual lights. Not only can you increase or decrease the level of light in and around your cabinet at will, but, more importantly, you can balance that level of light with other layers of light in the kitchen.
Finally, let our cabinet lighting service team recommend the very best energy efficient fixtures for kitchen cabinet lighting design. Some of the world’s best sources of light are being generated by LED lamps and fixtures whose quality has rivaled, and my soon surpass the quality of xenon lamps. Cabinets of any build, size, or motif can be illuminated by energy saving LED light fixtures that range from warm to ultra cool tones to compliment the full spectrum of kitchen interior color schemes.
