Cabinetry lighting techniques and ideas

Lighting plays a pivotal role in defining the look and feel of your interiors. As more homeowners venture into the world of custom designs, cabinetry lighting emerges as a trendsetter. For those who haven’t explored this niche, cabinet lights can elevate the ambiance, accentuate your prized possessions, and make tasks easier. Let’s delve into some innovative cabinet lighting techniques and ideas.

Under-cabinet LED strips

LED strips are sleek, energy-efficient, and perfect for modern kitchens. They cast an even light, ideal for chopping or reading recipes. Strategically placed under your upper kitchen cabinets, they counteract the shadows formed by wall-mounted cabinets.

Inside-cabinet spotlights

Got a beautiful set of china or perhaps collectibles you want to showcase? Install spotlights inside glass-front cabinets. Not only does it elevate your display, but it also adds depth and dimension to your space.

Toe-kick lighting

Who said cabinets only refer to wall units? Your base cabinetry, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms, can benefit from toe-kick lighting. These subtle lights create a floating effect, making the room feel more spacious. Plus, they’re excellent as soft night lights!

Puck lights

These rounded lights offer focused spots of light. Use them inside cabinets or as under-cabinet lighting. Their concentrated beams highlight specific areas or objects. If versatility is what you're after, puck lights are a good bet.

Above-cabinet uplighting

If you have a gap between your kitchen or pantry cabinets and the ceiling, uplighting can create a dramatic effect. It sends a glow that bounces off the ceiling, providing ambient lighting. It’s a perfect blend of aesthetics and functionality.

Integrated cabinet lighting

For those seeking a seamless look, integrated lighting is your answer. These fixtures are built into the shelves or the cabinet itself, ensuring no wires or units are visible. It offers a clean, clutter-free appearance.
