What is LED under-cabinet lighting?

Basic information about LED under-counter lighting

LED under-cabinet lighting is a solution that is becoming increasingly popular in kitchens. It combines two key advantages - practical functionality, making food preparation easier, and visual aesthetics, creating a pleasant atmosphere. Compared to traditional light sources, LEDs are distinguished by their long life, low energy consumption and the possibility to adjust the intensity and colour of the light..

Principle of a touch switch

One of the most practical additions to LED under-cabinet lighting is the touch switch. It works on the principle of touch response, which means that you only need to gently touch the switch to switch the light on or off. This solution is extremely convenient, especially in the kitchen where our hands are often busy. The touch switch allows quick and hygienic control of the lighting, eliminating the need for traditional switches.

The use of under-cabinet lighting in the kitchen

LED under-cabinet lighting is widely used in the kitchen. Mounted under wall cabinets, it perfectly illuminates the worktop, making it easier to perform daily tasks such as cutting, cooking or cleaning. In addition, appropriately selected under-cabinet lighting can have a decorative function, emphasising the style and design of the kitchen.

LED under-cabinet strips are one of the most commonly chosen solutions for illuminating kitchen workspaces. They are available in two main variants: surface profiles and recessed profiles.

  • Surface profiles: Mounted on the surface of the cabinets, they are easy to install and do not require interference with the structure of the furniture. Their advantage is that they are easy to install and can be quickly removed if necessary. The disadvantage can be the visibility of the profile, which does not always meet the aesthetic requirements of users.
  • Recessed profiles: Mounted inside the furniture, making them less visible and more aesthetically pleasing. They do, however, require a precise groove in the furniture, which can be more time-consuming and complicated to install. The advantage is a discreet appearance and the ability to better integrate the lighting into the kitchen design.

Spot lighting is characterised by a concentrated and precise light source that is directed at a specific working area, such as the kitchen worktop. It is designed to provide adequate lighting for various kitchen tasks, such as food preparation.

  • Advantages: LED spotlights allow for precise illumination of selected areas, which can be particularly useful when carrying out precise kitchen work. They are also aesthetically pleasing and can provide a decorative accent in the kitchen.
  • Disadvantages: Their installation can be more complicated than installing skirting boards, especially if you want to illuminate a large area evenly. It is also necessary to position the lamps appropriately to avoid creating shadows.

Installing LED under-cabinet lighting

Attaching the skirting board - how do I install the lighting correctly?

The correct installation of an LED skirting board is crucial for its effective operation and aesthetic appearance. Here are some steps to consider:

  1. Selecting the mounting location: The strip should be mounted on the underside of the cabinet to evenly illuminate the countertop.
  2. Surface preparation: Make sure the surface is clean and dry.
  3. Mounting the skirting board: Use the included mounting hardware, such as double-sided tape or screws.
  4. Connecting the power supply: Connect the skirting board to the power supply, taking care to secure the wires properly.

Mounting the lights - how do I mount the lights correctly?

Mounting LED under-cabinet lights requires similar steps to installing skirting boards, except that precise placement of the light points is necessary.

  1. Placement planning: Determine where you want to mount the lamps to ensure optimal lighting.
  2. Surface preparation: The surface should be clean and dry.
  3. Mounting the lamps: Use the supplied brackets or mounting tape.
  4. Connecting the power supply: Connect each lamp to the power supply, securing the wires.

Power supply included - why is it so important?

The power supply unit is an indispensable component of an LED lighting system. Its task is to convert alternating current from the mains into direct current suitable for LEDs. We offer power supplies that are compatible with various models of under-cabinet lighting, ensuring stable and safe operation of the system. Choosing the right power supply is key to the longevity and reliability of LED lighting.
