How to select Under Cabinet Lighting
When looking for reliable and efficient options to illuminate certain areas of your kitchen or bathroom, under cabinet lighting is one of the best choices that you could make. To help you select the most suitable fixtures to fit your needs, Westside Wholesale has prepared a simple guide that you can follow.
The first factor that you have to pay attention to when selecting under cabinet lighting is the type of such devices such as incandescent, fluorescent and LED types.
Incandescent under cabinet lights are available in different color temperatures and wattages and offer a wide selection of styles that you can choose from. The advantages of this type of lighting include affordable price and easy to replace light bulbs. However, incandescent lights don’t last long and require replacement once or twice a year.
Fluorescent under cabinet lights offer easy installation, great color rendering and operation without buzzing or flickering. Such lights are also affordable but have a limited life and have to be replaced from time to time.
LED under cabinet lights have a very significant difference that makes them perfect for everyday use. They provide bright lighting features while using significantly less energy than any other type of lighting does. In addition to this, LED light bulbs last 5 times longer and require replacement once in 5-10 years.
After the type of your under cabinet lighting has been selected, you can move to the next important details, such as size, installation and design.
The size of the under cabinet lighting fixture depends on its purpose and the mounting location. For example, if you are planning to use it as a complimentary lighting source in the kitchen and want to mount it behind a counter or a cabinet, you can select a small under cabinet light. In case you want to decorate the area with the lights, look for more powerful devices that would bring more light to the room.
Don’t forget about the control options. You might want your under cabinet lighting fixtures to be compatible with remote controls. After all, being able to preset the operation of such fixtures or to control their brightness is always a nice benefit. If you would like to take advantage of controllers, it is important that you ensure that your specific under cabinet lighting choice is compatible. Not all under cabinet lights are.
The design of any lighting fixture that you install in your house coincide with the style that you have created for the space.
