Lighting is an essential part of your decor in the kitchen – and not just from the practical need to ensure you can see what you’re doing when you’re cooking!
Adding variety to your design is a must – and the kitchen lighting section of My Kitchen Store offers a huge range of choice with downlights, cabinet lights, plinth lights – and much more. But for this article, I am going to highlight (get it, highlight;) the use of LED lights, both in flexible strips and bar strips.
These are a great way to add interest to the interior of your cabinets, along the edges cupboards or plinths and anywhere that you would like a light feature to add interest.
We have flexible LED strips measuring 2 metres, each having 72 LED bulbs. These look great as edging inside cabinets or perhaps tucked onto the top of a splashback to create splashes of light. And here’s a DIY TIP for you, if you would like the lights to shine down to feature items on or below a cabinet shelf, but want to mask them from direct view you can use a shelf profile strip to house them in.
We also have a multi colour LED strip, 300mm in length and with 12 RGB diodes in 7 preset colours. These are easy to fit with a self-adhesive backing and are lots of fun.
Fixed strips are also available in varying lengths and widths and you will find all the connectors, distributors and plugs you need to set up your lighting – though we would always recommend that you consult a qualified electrician for fitting.
Hope that sheds a little light on LED strips! Visit www.mykitchenstore.co.uk for more information.
