What are LEDs?
LEDs can be used to make efficient lighting units which save energy, help protect the environment and reduce maintenance costs.
In addition, they allow the realisation of very compact, versatile lighting fixtures, with very different designs. Therefore, they are ideal for application to furniture of all types and are particularly effective in kitchens where they are used for task, mood and convenience purposes.
ENERGY SAVINGS OF UP TO 80% COMPARED TO OTHER LIGHT SOURCES
AVERAGE LIFE UP TO 25 TIMES MORE THAN CONVENTIONAL LIGHT SOURCES AND UP TO 50,000 HOURS OF SERVICE
LED LIGHTS DO NOT USE DANGEROUS SUBSTANCES AND GENERATE MUCH LESS HEAT. IT IS A SUSTAINABLE, ECO-FRIENDLY ENERGY SOLUTION
Planning a Kitchen Lighting Scheme
What you need to consider…
1 The size and layout of the kitchen and the amount of natural light it receives.
2 Look at the kitchen plan and think about what activiites will happen in each space.
3 Be practical, areas such as the kitchen sink, food preparation zones and cooking areas will warrant task lighting, while others, such as the dining area, call for mood, ambient and accent lighting for that welcoming, relaxing feel.
A: Under Cabinet Spot Lighting
B: Under Cabinet Strip Lighting
C: In Cabinet Spot Lighting
D: Flexible Strip Lighting
E: Flexible Strip Lighting
LED’s are available in two colour temperatures, Warm White and Natural White and the colour you choose will have a major impact on the look and feel of the kitchen.
Sufficient lighting is a must in task based areas where hobs, sinks and even worktop surfaces are in use. Consider under cupboard spotlights above the hob & sink areas and fit them as close to the front edges of the cupboards as possible to ensure the light shines outwards.
The perfect choice for adding depth and ambience to any kitchen design, flexible strip lighting is simple to use and can be used in almost any type of space. Opt for lighting along a plinth for example for a flood lit effect.
Handles are the perfect finishing touch to your kitchen. Our diverse offering include materials and finishes which will complement all styles,
