You want to put a boost to your kitchen, there is a solution: ask the ribbon LED under your kitchen furniture. Realize as in many bars and restaurants, indirect lighting by installing LED ribbon under a kitchen cabinet. At the difference of course that you will avoid the LED ribbon RGB color changing, a simple white (hot or cold depending on your decor) will be perfect. Or you can very well buy a LED ribbon that is not white, but a fixed color. Color that may correspond more to the color of your furniture or your decor. In any case prevent those changes color, your kitchen is not an amusement park.
This type of soft lighting give a more modern and current next to your kitchen.
Glue the LED ribbon under a kitchen cabinet
For this it is very simple simply unroll the tape adhesive LEDs, and paste it under the furniture along the entire length. Facing the ground, so that it remains invisible and gives indirect lighting. Then wire the 2 son of leds tape to the transformer, which I recommend you to hide behind the baseboard of kitchen furniture.
Selecting the tape LED color temperature for kitchen furniture
The LED ribbon that I used is equipped with warm white LEDs of 3000 degrees Kelvin. This is the color temperature indication you will find on all the lights bulbs or LEDs that are energy saving (see http://www.topbbacolleges.com/why-use-energy-efficient-light-bulbs/), it ranges from 2500K to 6000K in general. The lowest value being one that will provide a warmer lighting, and the higher up the closer you get a cold lighting. This color LEDs was more appropriate for us, knowing that we had a lot of decorative wood based in this kitchen.
Power choice of ribbon LED under cabinet kitchen
Since it is not with this LED strip you’ll light your room (at least not in this case), I advise you to choose a less powerful can tape. For we will only create a markup to mark your furniture. I myself have chosen a LED ribbon makes 4.8W / mètrre, which is quite low but depending on the quality of the product purchased will be lighting more or less intensive.
You can very well use tape led even less powerful as the 3W / meter. You will realize that the night or evening, it will already be more than enough to create a very nice markup.
Your kitchen gives the impression of floating
The visual effect once the installation is complete gives the impression that the kitchen is now “float” in the air, just through this LED ribbon under a kitchen cabinet.
