Kitchen Cabinet Lighting: Four Benefits of Adding Lights Inside Cabinets

by Susanne Clemenz

Any kitchen can benefit from special lighting, especially if it's part of a great room visible from the dining room. When kitchen remodeling on a budget, reface your upper cabinets with glass-fronted doors, and, then, install special kitchen cabinet lighting inside them. Refacing just the upper cabinet doors isn't that expensive, and it's easy to add switches and wiring for kitchen cabinet lighting. You'll achieve a major visual upgrade while adding lots of practicality.

Benefits of New Doors and Kitchen Cabinet Lighting

  1. Day or night, you can showcase your beautiful stemware, glasses, and china. At night, they'll sparkle and glow.
  2. If your kitchen is visible from the dining table, turn off brighter lights and turn on your kitchen cabinet lighting. When entertaining, this takes the focus away from any soiled pots and bowls used for last minute food preparations.
  3. When you return to the kitchen with cleared dishes before coffee and dessert, turn on your interior kitchen cabinet lighting and keep the bright, overall lights off. That way, you don't destroy the evening's lovely ambiance.
  4. Leaving on one cabinet's lighting at night can help you and your guests navigate. That can come in handy if someone needs a glass of water or makes a 2 a.m. raid on that home-made ice cream.

Low energy rope lights, strip lights, and puck lights give you lots of options. Start planning your glowing new kitchen today.
