Powering Under cabinetry Lighting
The first concern many homeowners have when thinking about installing lighting under kitchen cabinets is the power source. Of course, no one wants to see electrical wiring running along the wall and up to the concealed lights. Fortunately, the pros at Lumberjack Electric make the installation of electric under cabinet lights look simple. Over the years, our team has perfected installing concealed wiring to power all the lights hidden under the lower trim of your kitchen's upper cabinets.
Types Of Under cabinetry Lights
There is a wide array of options for the fixtures that you will have lighting your counter work surfaces. Some of the choices include:
- Light Bars– these fixtures run parallel to the wall and light a long section of the counter surface. Your options range from around 18-inches to several feet long for a single fixture. These are great to light an entire counter surface that sees much use.
- Puck Lights– these smaller round lights can be installed as single light sources to illuminate a small section of the counter, for example, over your coffee maker or other small appliance. Several can also be installed along an area of the counter surface to gently light the entire surface of a counter more decoratively.
- Rope Lights– These lighting ropes provide a smaller amount of light but are ideal for adding impact to the space or softly illuminating the counter surface. However, most are not sufficient to light a workspace.
- Motion Sensor Or Remote Lighting– These options are ideal in the kitchen when you could have wet hands and do not want to be touching a light switch. Many homeowners are also interested in integrating their new lights with a home automation platform to increase the functionality of the lighting.
Under cabinetry Lighting For Other Spaces
While the most common place to locate under cabinet lighting is in the kitchen, there are several other very useful applications, including the laundry room, craft room, garage, or workshop. Depending on the location, there are many features that might add value to your lighting selections, such as brighter light in a craft row hobby area and more durable lights in a space used as a workshop or garage and could see a bit more abuse.
