Looking for home improvements you can make that are eye-catching and cost effective? Thinking maybe it’s time to update your kitchen (always high on many homeowners’ wish lists) but don’t want to go through the destructive and expensive experience of a full remodel? Consider upgrading your kitchen lighting.
A striking yet simple improvement is to add under-cabinet lighting. The additional light source not only offers the obvious advantage of increased light in cooking areas, which in itself makes cooking more of a pleasure and gives a cleaner, brighter and more sanitary feel to food preparation. Under-cabinet lighting also reshapes your perception of the room, bringing new highlights and adding more dimension to the room.
It can also add a perfect touch as mood lighting when entertaining. Bright clinical light is desirable when cooking up a family feast, but not when mixing a drink for a guest while entertaining. With under-cabinet lighting you have the option to turn off the overhead lights and have your kitchen wrapped in a warm glow of light right above your refreshments. You can even add a splash of color with LED lights that operate both as white light and can change to a variety of colors to suit your mood or the occasion!
