As the place where family and friends gather to share meals and memories, the kitchen is often the heart of a home. With modern kitchen cabinet lighting, a homeowner can make the most inviting room feel even warmer and cozier. Whether a kitchen is French traditional or modern and minimal, the right combination of cabinet lighting can elevate the design to a whole new level. Phantom’s Elite and Ultra lighting systems can be customized to create any number of styles to complement any kitchen layout or design. In the hands of a talented designer and installer, like Phantom LED strips can be custom built for any space and offer a cohesive fit.

There are three types of kitchen cabinet lighting:

  1. Above: Fixtures placed above shelving or cabinetry provide an extra layer of illumination that fills the space. Because they are installed close to the ceiling, the fixtures bounce light off the top of the room and illuminate the whole room. Similar to the visual effects of cove lighting, this adds dimension and depth to any room.
  2. Within: Fixtures placed inside shelving or glass-front cabinets are ideal for displaying decor items or precious dishes because they highlight the detail of ceramic or China and give glassware an ethereal glow. Our Elite and Ultra recessed lighting strips are available in a range of color temperatures, so they can be customized to bring out the best in your decor.
  3. Below: Fixtures that are placed under shelving units are also known as task systems, as they provide function as well as form. Task fixture systems provide spot illumination for countertops, making it easier for people to prepare food and clean. Task fixtures, like most other LED strip systems, are designed to remain concealed.

The residential cocktail bar pictured here incorporates several Phantom Lighting systems working in unison – recessed cabinet lighting for the glassware, task lighting underneath the cabinet to illuminate the counter top, and cove lighting on top of the cabinet.

For the most complete and sophisticated look, homeowners should consider all three systems for their kitchens. Phantom’s lighting designers can bring these elements together into a cohesive whole and give the heart of any home a brilliant, inviting feel.
