Enhancing a home or room’s look with cabinet lighting is a combination of aesthetics and functionality. These illumination fixtures have moved far beyond their function of task luminances in the kitchen. They can be found inside curios, bookcases, or used as rim luminances for artwork or flat screen televisions. There are different varieties of cabinet lighting installations, but they all have the same thing in common – they remain unseen while they bring greater visibility to collectables, artwork, or books.
Adjustable and fixed shelf linear strips provide a completely hidden source of illumination inside bookcases, hutches, and other display pieces. These strips can be mounted vertically or horizontally, while maintaining a seamless look. Vertical mounts are recommended for shelves more than thirty inches long, and can be installed without damaging the shelving. Vertical mounts can be notched to fit around shelves or even installed in segments. For furniture pieces with glass doors, a professional will suggest LED linear strips. They are safer than fluorescents and halogens because they produce little to no heat, do not emit ultraviolet radiation, and cost pennies to operate annually. They come in a range of color tones and can create any mood, look or atmosphere.
The heart of any home is the kitchen. It is where everyone gathers to prepare meals, entertain, do schoolwork, and catch up. A kitchen’s illumination needs require more than just the harsh fluorescent glaring from the ceiling. For an even distribution of light, LED linear strips are recommended. They present a uniformed look, are highly functional, and are aesthetically pleasing. Because the new LED linear strips are dimmable and energy efficient, they can be left on overnight to provide illumination for safety. With quality illumination, elegance no longer has to come second to functionality.
