Kitchen buying guides

Kitchen lighting buying guide

Whether it is to brighten dark spaces, make a striking design statement, or to illuminate work areas, our buying guide will help you choose the right lights for your room.

What are the different types of kitchen lighting?

Cupboard lights

Cabinet lights are a great way to make units stand out, particularly enhancing glass-fronted doors. They can also provide better visibility inside cupboards and drawers to make it easier to find the items you need.

Plinth lights

Illuminate a statement floor by adding lights beneath base cabinets and in kickboards. This will create a more open effect, drawing attention to flooring, and working well in contemporary schemes.

Strip lighting

Strip-LEDs are a versatile choice that can add light under cabinets and round corners, including counters or shelving. They can also be used to illuminate a unique border.

Under-cabinet lighting

If you are limited on natural light or you find larger cupboards are casting shadows over work areas, then adding fittings to the underside can make space more usable and accessible.
