LED skirting lights – If you are looking for ways to make your home a showplace without breaking the budget then you may want to consider LED skirting lighting to add drama and beauty to your home.
What Are LED Skirting Lights?
LED skirting lights also called Plinth lighting is a type of LED low level lighting that is designed to put under your lower kitchen counters to provide subtle lighting that highlights your kitchen flooring, provides a “night light” effect, and adds a bit of drama to your home or business décor.
However, LED skirting lights are not handy under those kitchen counters, you can place them in the base boards around the entire kitchen as well under your top kitchen cabinets in order to provide task lighting for preparing food and other necessary activities.
Not Just for Kitchens
Plinth lighting isn’t just for kitchens. You can use LED-skirting lights in your bathroom, your bedroom, especially around the base of a solid frame bed, and even in your home entertainment room. Plinth lighting can even be placed in the baseboards of the nursery or children’s room to serve as night-light. Wherever LED-skirting lights are found you could rest assured that they will draw attention and turn an average room into something special.
Can Be Purchased as Singles or in Sets
These low level lights can be purchased in sets for those who want to have their plinth lights cover a large area or be sold as singles for smaller areas or when one set is not enough and two sets may be too much.
In many cases it is cheaper to purchase LED-skirting lights in sets than to purchase the same number of plinth lights separately. However, there may be times when you simply don’t need a set of 6, 8 or 9 lights, in those cases it makes more sense to purchase a single light.
Why Choose LED Plinth Lighting?
You may be wondering why people choose LED Plinth lighting over more traditional types of lighting and as it turns out there are several reasons why LED lights is the lighting of choice. Here are just some of the reasons why more and more people are choosing LED lighting.
- LED lighting is long lasting Once in stalled most LED lighting last 20,000, 50,000, and 70,000 hours or more. This means once you put in those low level LED lights they can last for several years with little or no maintenance.
