Decoration is about details, and a small change can make a big difference. As for cabinets, lighting is not only for decoration but also for practical use. Under cabinet LED lighting can highlight subtle elements in the cabinets while provide proper lighting when you need to find something.
LED’s present several advantages over old-fashioned bulbs that make them a particularly good fit for anyone with an eye for design. LED’s come in a variety of colors. If you want a soft white light for the kitchen there is an LED for that. If you want something yellow for the bookcase in the office, there is an LED for that. If you want a green light for the underside of the cabinet over the wet bar at home or at the office, there is an LED for that too. LED’s are widely available in so many more colors than other bulbs that if you care about color it’s a no-brainer to use LED’s.
Under cabinet LED lighting is superior to lighting with other bulbs because of the durability of the LED’s. All other bulbs are more fragile than an LED. This is because the LED is engineered completely differently than a typical bulb. But not only are LED’s less likely to break, they emit light longer. LED’s will burnout long after any other regular bulb. This again goes back the way LED’s are engineered. LED’s use less power and wear out slower.
The fact that LED’s use less power is another one of their greatest advantages. LED’s are better on the environment than regular bulbs because they conserve power. This also saves you money. LED’s are a great green investment because they also last longer and are better on the environment when they finally need to be replaced. The energy savings and the savings from less frequent replacement is also a win for businesses and consumers.
Another reason why under cabinet LED lighting stands over traditional bulbs is that this kind of lighting produces almost no heat. This means that they won’t release so much heat to the environment as to cause a fire or damage delicate items like antiquities. Therefore, under cabinet lighting is what professionals prefer. Perhaps it’s time to listen to the professionals and enjoy the benefits of new technology.
