Is it that important to install cabinet lighting in my home?

Cabinet lighting is a great way to brighten up the interior while showcasing prized possessions. When you move into your new house, you will find cabinets in many of the rooms. The kitchen will have cabinets both over the counter and under the counter.

You will also find cabinets in your bathroom that will need visibility. In living rooms, you will have decorative cabinets that will showcase display items or collectibles. All of these structures will need special display cabinet lighting in order to properly light their interiors.

Cabinet Lighting is now renowned for it's unique "Lighted from Within" appearance.

Where can I go and buy cabinet lighting fixtures?

If your builder has not already done so, you may want to go to a local lighting store, or you may want to search online. We recommend you think twice before doing this. While the quality of light that many such fixtures produce is sufficient for your needs, you will run into other challenges. Retail fixtures are notorious for their failure to properly fit the dimensions of custom cabinetry. They also tend to overheat if left on for too long. This can drive up cooling costs and sometimes damage cabinet contents as well.

Another negative attribute of retail cabinet lighting fixtures is their awkward size. They tend to be too large for most undercabinet surfaces. From certain angles, you can clearly see them visibly protruding into open space. This will diminish the aesthetic of the furniture, surroundings, and any special items on display.

What do you suggest instead?

We recommend that you invest in a cabinet lighting system that is easier to conceal and cheaper to operate. This requires nothing more than a phone call to our main office. One of our experts will ask you some basic questions about the nature and use of the various cabinets in your home. We will need the dimensions for these structures, or, even better, architectural drawings from your builder. With that information, we can select a series strip fixture, trim option, and lamp option that is perfect for your application.

What happens next?

We send a custom order to our factory, which then custom manufactures the linear strip lighting fixtures to match the horizontal or vertical surface of your cabinet’s interior

What advantages do your cabinet lighting fixtures offer that no other kinds do?

They are cheaper to operate, and they are completely concealable. Phantom light strips have always been energy efficient due to low voltage transformers and dimmer controls. Now, with LED lamps that no other manufacturer has, we have the ability to offer you bright light with very little heat output. Not only do you save money on electricity; you never have to worry about overheating the room and straining the air conditioner.

The smaller and slimmer design of Phantom custom cabinet lighting strips makes them easy to conceal on a variety of cabinet undersurfaces, shelf interiors, or interior vertical styles. When lighting an area beneath the cabinet shelf, we prefer to fit the fixture under the forward lip of the cabinet or cabinet bottom so as to completely conceal it from view. When mounting a vertical strip, we use either the center of the door or a series of segments that are specially wired to work together even though the actual linear strip is broken into several parts.
