We’ve received inquiries along these lines from several of our customers –
“I recently acquired a large antique corner cabinet for my home that desperately needs some kind of internal lighting. I have placed the cabinet in a dark wood room which gets very little natural lighting. My home is fairly traditional, so I do not have overhead lighting to wash the cabinet like they did at the antique store. Can you help me?”
Phantom strip lights, particularly the VM Series, are perfect for illuminating antique corner cabinets, or any kind of furniture for that matter. When illuminating corner cabinets, a great option is to install our vertical mount strip lights hidden inside the cabinet on both sides as well as a horizontal strip on top to provide an indirect light source. The low voltage transformer is hidden in the base cabinet along with the dimmer control.
We custom-fabricate vertical Phantom light trims to fit between the shelves of your specific piece of furniture and connect them together with small wire jumpers to create a continuous light source. All Phantom light trims have a glare shield which prohibits you from seeing the light source from any viewing angle. The internal strip lighting in a corner cabinet is striking at first glance and accentuates the details of whatever you choose to display within it.
Phantom’s lighting systems are top-of-the-line when it comes to low voltage festoon (LED or xenon) strip lighting. Other manufacturers of linear lighting products, such as rope light, fail to hide the light source, resulting in a distracting visual result. Other strip lighting products would require more intrusive wiring methods which would devalue the cabinet. If you’ve purchased an expensive antique, the very last thing you’d want to do is drill holes in it!
