7 Reasons to Consider LED Lighting

Creation Cabinetry has been building and installing kitchens, bathrooms, and specialties for 30 years. That being said, we’re extremely well educated and informed on cabinets and their amenities. One of the most popular features that customers elect to include in their building plans is LED lighting, as it’s a huge difference maker in terms of visibility in the kitchen.

From the blog: 4 cool specialty projects

Without further ado, here are seven reasons you should consider having LED lighting installed in your kitchen!

1. Brightness of LEDs is ideal for preparing food

This photo perfectly displays some of the perks to lighting your kitchen cabinets with LED strip lighting. The brightness of the LEDs gives homeowners plenty of light to prepare their favorite foods throughout the entirety of the cooking process.

2. LED lights stay relatively cool, unlike traditional lighting

While the brightness and size of LEDs is hard to beat, there are other perks that come with LED lighting. Perhaps one of the things about them that gets overshadowed the most is the fact that the lights provide vivid lighting while staying moderately cool. Many light sources become extremely hot after being on for awhile, but that’s not the case with LEDs, as they throw off minimal heat.

3. LED lighting is great for displaying meaningful items

In addition to their practical uses, LED lights can also add a dramatic touch to any room. If positioned correctly, LEDs can do a fantastic job of drawing your attention to a particular area. This is great for anybody that is trying to prominently display an antique or meaningful item in their home.

If you look at the photo above, you’ll see a great example of this!

4. Ease of placement makes for countless possibilities

LED lights can be mounted nearly anywhere in your kitchen. By adding a strip of LEDs underneath of a countertop or cabinetry, designers can bring a kitchen to life. Walls of cabinetry also benefit from the addition of LED lighting, as it helps add depth to designs.

5. Customizable colors make LED lighting fun & personal

Better yet, many LEDs are completely customizable in terms of the colors that they produce. Having toe kick lighting at the foot of your cabinets can be a great addition to any kitchen or room in your home, especially when you have the ability to select the color and brightness at any point in time.

6. LED lighting can illuminate dark cabinets and drawers

LEDs are always great for the inside of drawers and cabinets. The additional light from the LEDs will surely come in handy when you’re rummaging through your dreaded junk drawer.

7. LED lights have a long life span

An often overlooked perk to LED lighting is the longevity that they hold. LEDs have been said to have a lifespan of 10-20 years, which certainly trumps having to change out bulbs every few months.
