6 Benefits of Under Cabinet Lighting

Under cabinet lights are growing in popularity among homeowners across the country, thanks to their unique design and energy efficiency. Those aren’t the only benefits of under cabinet lights though, as they can also increase the overall value of your home and are perfect for the homeowners on a lower budget. At Littman Bros Lighting in Schaumburg, Illinois, we offer a variety of under cabinet lighting options for your dining areas, kitchens, home offices, home theaters, game rooms and more. We’ve been serving Chicago and neighboring communities since 1979. Contact us today.

In this blog post, we will go over six of the major benefits to homeowners if they decide to install under cabinet lights in their homes.

1. They offer unique style and design.

Under cabinet lights offer a unique alternative to your traditional wall sconces, ceiling lights or table lamps. This lighting option is installed right underneath your cabinetry, adding efficiency to any of your daily tasks as well as a distinction in design.

For example, if you’re going for a layered style of lighting in your kitchen, under cabinet lights can add a modernized style to the room. They also create a warm and inviting type of lighting that isn’t as hard as overhead lights.

2. They enhance the interior value of your home.

As mentioned above, under cabinet lights enhance the beauty of the room they’re installed in. Assuming they’ve been installed correctly, the overall interior value of your home will increase with this type of lighting due to its trendiness and efficiency.

Under cabinet lights have become a favorite design element among homeowners because they set a comfortable and inviting atmosphere to any given room, and they can also offer homeowners a range of colors in high or low outputs.

3. They cast fewer shadows.

Under cabinet lights make it easier for you to complete tasks that need to be done under direct light, such as cutting vegetables or writing notes. Since you are not standing between the light and the counter, you’ll likely have more adequate lighting and won’t have to worry about casting shadows.

4. They’re energy efficient.

Under cabinet lights help homeowners save on their energy bill, especially when installed with house LED tape lights. These lights are focused on one specific area rather than the entire room, so not as much power is required to light up the area.

5. They’re perfect for lower budgets.

Under cabinet lights are a great option for homeowners on a budget, as there are a variety to choose from (the cheapest ones can even come battery-powered). They’re also fairly easy to install, meaning you don’t necessarily have to hire a professional to do so, ultimately saving you money.

6. They’re easy to install.

As we mentioned before, under cabinet lights are easy to configure and install. Most types of this lighting require you to accomplish two simple steps: screwing the lights underneath your cabinets and then plugging them in.
