Hello my loves,
Happy Wednesday, how are you? I hope you’re all having a great week. I didn’t upload on Friday or Monday so I uploaded my update yesterday. You can read that here if you’re interested.
Today I am bringing you a different kind of post. This is actually an ad for Light Supplier. If you continue reading, you’ll find out why I am collaborating with them.
Since being up with Jack, all I have thought about is my own home, how I want it to look on the outside as well as the interior design, I then remember that I am broke and cannot afford to move out (just yet anyway). Instead, I am looking at re-decorating my mums kitchen. In all honesty the whole house needs doing, but the kitchen is our favourite place so we’ll start there.
We are currently looking at investing in new lights, the lights we have at the moment are great, but we want something a little different, so I made the suggestion to get cabinet lights. Light Supplier have a range of lights which could work, so I am here to share the pros and cons of each one. I would love if you could vote at the end of this post.
Tape lights are an extremely thin length of tape. You will find LED lights run along the strip of the tape. They come in varying lengths, which means they’re great for different projects.
They’re an ideal choice if you have a shallow or flat under cabinet recess, as you wont be able to see them once they are attached. Thanks to the LED bulbs as well, they don’t emit any heat which is what you want to avoid in the kitchen when it can get warm when you’re cooking.
Puck lights are individual under cabinet lights that come in a range of shapes, some are round like a hockey puck, whilst others can be rectangular or triangular.
Easy to install, the surface mounted ones can be stuck to the underside of the cabinet. Whilst you can also buy recessed under cabinet lights, which are fitted into the cabinets to make them more seamless, as they don’t interfere with the design of the kitchen.
A huge drawer of installing puck lights to the underside of your cabinets, is that some styles are rechargeable or battery operated, so there’s no need for them to be attached to a mains switch.
Rope lights are similar to tape lights, but they’re typically just a little larger and can’t be bent as easily without causing them damage.
They’re easy to install, and can be removed just as quickly too, perfect if you’re renting or don’t want to commit to having under cabinet lights.
Strip lights are bigger than puck lights, and they typically provide a lot more light output than rope or tape lights. The fixtures are installed to the underside of the cabinets, and if you have a big enough under cabinet recess they won’t be seen.
These come in varying lengths, and provide excellent task lighting if your overhead lighting in the kitchen casts shadows on your worktops.
You can find a range of under cabinet lights over on Light Supplier.
Thank you so much for reading tonight’s post, I hope you have enjoyed it. If you have, be sure to leave a like and comment below which light you would pick after reading each pro and con.
I’ll be back on Saturday with another post, so be sure to head over then.
Sending you all my love,
