The days are getting shorter and the nights are drawing in noticeably faster than they were a few weeks ago. Soon, we’ll be rolling out of bed and stumbling into the kitchen in the morning darkness.
Perhaps you will be channelling your inner Dolly Parton as you get started for the day, or perhaps you won’t. Either way, is it time to spruce up your kitchen to make those winter mornings a little easier to deal with? Here are 5 reasons to fit under cabinet kitchen led lighting as a starting point:
They are better for the environment
LED bulbs are an excellent alternative to their traditional counterparts thanks to their energy efficiency. These bulbs will run for a whopping 50,000 hours or so, far longer than your usual bulbs. They can also be recycled and they don’t give off any toxic emissions either.
They are easy to install
Don’t fancy getting an electrician in? You don’t have to. Unless you have a lot of lights to install you could opt for the battery-powered LED lights instead. All you have to do is stick them directly onto the surface you want them placed onto and, voila, job done!
They are aesthetically pleasing
It is difficult to argue that a few strategically placed lights can do wonders for the aesthetics of a room, changing its appearance and overall ambience entirely. Available in a range of designs and degrees of brightness (known as the ‘lumen value’), you are certain to find a style that fits with your kitchen’s design.
They are practical
Last but not least, they are practical. Under cabinet LED lighting can brighten up those darker areas. Alternatively, they can be used as accent lighting to bring out the details or highlight interesting features within a room.
And let’s not forget those midnight snack runs. No longer do you need to make the choice of relying on the fridge light or switching on the main lights. A little discreet yet effective lighting now lets you raid away at the goodies without disturbing anyone else!
