Depending on where your cabinets might be located, and what you will be using them for, installing under cabinet lighting can be a great idea. However, there are a lot of things to consider before you even get started, including the intensity, layout and color of the lights, as well as the necessity of their placement and use in specific situations. If possible hire Arvada electricians to do the wiring in advance of cabinet installation.
The rule of thumb is to use under cabinet lighting only when necessary. If you have a light source right above your counter in the kitchen, for example, and your visibility is just right, adding under cabinet lights just because you have a cabinet above your countertop might not help much aside from adding a slight aesthetic improvement. In that case, you only need a small strip of colored or white lights to do the trick.
It’s always a good idea to install a dimmer as long as your budget allows it. Dimmers can help adapt the intensity of these lights, so you can even use them effectively when your eyes are tired or when the sun isn’t fully up yet in the morning.
If you have a cabinet above a work desk, and you need more light there, consider a brighter LED lamp that also focuses the light effectively downwards. A dimmer is also great to have here, especially if you work on many different types of projects requiring different levels of focus that can easily tire out your eyes.
