The light of kitchen cabinets was once considered purely functional fixtures, whose sole purpose was to illuminate shelves and work areas under the cabinets. This change is starting, however, large house and custom floor plans change the traditional purpose and nature of the kitchen.
Today’s kitchen has grown more than a food storage and preparation area. Now it has developed into a central meeting place for any kind of home entertainment programs. In this setting, kitchen cabinet lighting should meet more than the ground-level requirements to produce optimum visibility and comfort. It addresses some beauty concerns as well as light colors and brightness, color rendering of illuminated surface and interior design, and glowing free light which will not harm the eyes of the owners and guests of the house.
Safety, energy efficiency and ease of access are also top concerns when choosing fixtures, as some fixtures should be left overnight under cabinet lighting, and almost all cabinet shelves have to be adjusted or removed for periodic cleaning.
Kitchen Cabinet Lights come in two primary categories: in cabinet lights and in cabinet lights. The lights in the cabinet strip provide interior lighting for solid space and shelving. Under the cabinet lights, there is work lighting provided for activities under a cabinet, such as preparing meals and cleaning after dinner.
Until a few years ago, very typical kitchen cabinet lights were used in the cabinet or under cabinet lighting requirements. For most of the cabinet or task lighting applications, Puck lighting was a favorite stability, because it had put a bright circle of light on the countertop, which made it easy to see and work. When electric bills run too high, fluorescent lamps were often replaced by the advantages of their low heat production and power saving. It was not unusual to see at least one fluorescent light above the stove in the 60’s, 70’s.
However, due to the more elaborate and ornate kitchen formation, under the cabinet lights, the domination of puck and fluorescent is no longer absolute as once. That’s because a large number of people are replacing ordinary counter top content with custom, more elaborate granite and marble. This cabinet presents a new dynamic for light makers because these surfaces are highly reflective. The light of the kitchen cabinet now protects the eyes from the same level of light and reflects the radiant radiance as they did before.
Although it is true that most of the fluorescent is kept in frosted fixtures which reduce glare, they do not provide color with enough details to make justice for subtle colors and changes in those counter counter features. Paint lights with light illumination offer better color, but they are just too intense and will almost always throw reflected light in the eyes.
In this type of setting, it is almost always better to go with custom cabinet lights in the form of linear straps. These fixtures add value to their low profile design and the unique properties of shine free light which they generate as a pronounced light source.
Each custom lighting strip is accurately fabricated on kitchen cabinet or shelf dimensions.
It is invisible to the contingent eyes, and has special preservation in it, which reduces reflective glare at near-indeterminate levels.
Linear strips, such as made by Phantom, accommodate a wide variety of festival options of the bulb. A very popular bulb type xenon for cabinet kitchen lighting. Xenon low-voltage lamps present colors at an equivalent level of sunlight. In the form of low-voltage, dimmable lighting strip, it will bring out the multi-dimensional color of granite, like multi-dimensional color, of some other type of light – a fraction of the cost of competitive linear strip light.
Linear strips equipped with incandescent festivals are ideally suited for interior kitchen cabinet shelf lighting. The stimulants produce the “white” form of light and everything clearly appears within the cube’s cube interior. Unlike pook lights, they do not take almost any solid space within the cabinet, leave more room for storage and a more balanced presentation when the cabinet is opened in front of the guests.
The restaurant should consider reversing any existing kitchen cabinet light strips with LED replacement festive lamps. These lamps produce a lumen output similar to incandescent and fluorescent, but they use 80% less electricity. Although there is very little for a restaurant’s kitchen, considerations for beauty, employee comfort and cost consciousness are of vital importance. Fluorescence emits UV radiation which is never good for anybody’s eyes, and will result in expensive light bills as a result of the incandescent light released for a long time. LED energy saving light bulbs are just a good investment.
Changing the Low Voltage Festoon Lights with the one-time LED Light Bulb Upgrade will bring an immediate, recurring, monthly return on investment, and it will create a more comfortable work environment for the cooks.
It is also good for the residential home owners to consider installing at least one LED kitchen in the cabinet light as the least vigilant safety measure. This eliminates the need to stumble through a dark kitchen, because it relies on the light of the refrigerator as the only source of light, and it adds a bit of comfort to the guests of the night, Breakfast is required at night.
