Implementing cove lights can dramatically change the way a room looks, from the kitchen to the living room and beyond. Cove lighting features provide indirect sources of light that help give a room a relaxed and cozy feel. Because a cove is not the primary light source in the design of a room, it contributes to the overall mood more than it does to the functionality.

Cove lighting doesn’t only apply to ceilings – many creative designs benefit from the use of cove lights because they can be easily hidden.

Staircases, for instance, are aspects of a home that are usually ignored in terms of lighting design. Yet, adding a fixture to the rise of each step can transform a modern staircase, making it an unusual focal point of a room. Cove lighting techniques can be applied to the toe kicks of cabinetry in kitchens or bathrooms, adding dimension to the entire room by illuminating the plane below the horizon. Cove lighting can be used to highlight any architectural feature of your home or business, including arches, hallways, and built-in cabinetry. Adding cove lighting fixtures behind a TV or an aquarium can make these pieces stand out even more than they already do. Using vibrant colors, rather than traditional tones of white, can be an interesting way to decorate a space. No matter how the fixtures are installed, cove lighting can be designed to enrich and transform a space from basic to alluring.

Custom mounting trims establish the optimum aiming angle which allows the contents of any cove to be illuminated to a precise degree at the highest level of aesthetics yet to be seen. Strips are dimmable using a magnetic low voltage dimmer and produce a quality of consistent color and lumen output unmatched by competing products. Shielded options are best for shaping the light in precise patterns and for minimizing hot spots on surrounding surfaces and spill light that may stray outside the display. Lensed options are the best for applications where the light fixture may be visible, by hiding the individual LED diodes and preventing object or surface reflections by homogenizing the light pattern.
