Here are some great to brighten your kitchen spacewith the use of LED lighting:
- Ceiling lighting – Transitioning to LED lights for overhead lighting used to be difficult. Now most LED can lighting comes with an installation kit that makes the process much easier.
- Highlighting Architecture – If you have an interesting cut-out in your ceiling, LED lighting is a great, low profile way to highlight it. You can also use it to highlight molding at the top of your cabinets so that it doesn’t get lost with the height of your ceiling.

- Glass Front Cabinets – LEDs are perfect for lighting glass-front cabinets. They add a great effect and help showcase your serveware.
- In-Cabinet Lighting – The inside of cabinets and drawers are very dark places. Instead of losing items to the darkness, add LED lighting inside your cabinets and drawers to help you find items you need.
- Track Lighting – If you have high ceilings and can lights won’t do the trick, adding LED track lighting will help brighten up the room. With low heat emission and bright light, LED track lighting is a great solution to the problem.

Toe-kick lighting can also help those who try to navigate through the kitchen in the dark. These energy-efficient lights can be left on all night without killing your wallet.
