LED lighting has had a particularly good run as homeowners change over from traditional incandescent bulbs. It provides good lighting for activities, comes in a variety of colors and the bulbs last for a really long time. This has made it a popular option for under-cabinet lighting. Under cabinet LED lights come in different forms including pucks, strips, and bars. When fixed under the wall cabinetry, they help add light to the working area as well as improve the overall ambiance. LED is not the only type of lighting that can be fixed under the cabinet. You could opt for fluorescent fixtures, which are almost as energy efficient as LED and produce minimal heat. Xenon lights give off some heat but they can be dimmed and have an attractive warm glow. You could also go with halogen lights, but this is not always a good idea. They give off too much heat which could affect foods or drinks you have stored inside the cabinet.
Traditional cabinets typically feature more detail, sometimes in the form of raised-panel doors or bead-board designs. Colors range from clean whites and creams, to reds, tans, and a wide range of wood hues. Inset recessed doors, where you`ll see the frame around doors and the doors are set flush with the frame, are also very popular in traditional cabinet styles.
A few main factors will likely help guide your kitchen cabinet design choices. The first is whether or not you wish to reflect the overall design of your home in the kitchen design. Most kitchens do adhere to the prevailing design aesthetic of the home, but it`s not entirely uncommon to find a kitchen that`s its own space, reflecting a design departure in whole or in part. Once you`ve decided whether to stick to the overall home design, discard it, or create something that rests comfortably in the middle, it`s time to think about the scope of your kitchen cabinet project.
