Small Plinth Lights – How to Create Lighting Effects in The Kitchen

Small plinth lights -The kitchen is one of the most commonly used rooms in the house. Whether you are cooking meals, eating breakfast, entertaining guests or cleaning the space, more time is spent here than you likely realize. Because the kitchen is such a popular location in the home, it deserves the same treatment that any other room in the home would get. This includes the areas where lighting is concerned.

Though there are many options for kitchen lighting, there are some options that are commonly forgotten about. One of the most overlooked aspects of kitchen lighting is plinth lighting, also known as kitchen kickboard lights.

What Are Plinth Lights?

Plinth lights are those that are mounted vertically in the space between the floor and the kitchen cabinets or appliances. This small strip may seem unsuspecting, but it is a great opportunity for you to bring the illumination from the ceiling to the floor. Choosing small plinth lights can also afford you plenty of room for creative placement. In this way, you can enhance the overall appearance and functionality of the space all in one.

Why Should You Consider Plinth Lights?

Using small plinth lights can give your kitchen the finishing touch that you didn’t know it needed. Whether that is in terms of lightening up an often dark area of the space or simply adding decoration, kitchen kickboard lights go a long way towards improving the room’s look and feel.

How To Choose the Best Kitchen Kickboard Lights

There are a few things to think about when choosing plinth lights:

  • In most cases, the kickboard area is not all that big. In instances like this, small plinth lights are best. Even if there is a spacious kickplate, using small plinth lights will allow room for even more lights around the boards, creating a more decorative effect.
  • The name “kickboard” is taken from the fact that this part of the kitchen is down by the feet where it has the risk of getting kicked. For this reason and to prolong the life of these light fixtures, choosing a durable material is important. Aluminium or steel is recommended in cases like this.
  • The light’s finish is especially important if you are interested in using these lights for decoration as much as you do for illumination. Our small plinth lights come in metallic colours like gold, rose gold or silver, though you can also find them in neutral black and white.
  • IP RATING. Since there is water and moisture in the kitchen, it’s not a bad idea to look for lights that at least are water resistant.
  • CONSIDER A KIT. Installing new lights anywhere in the home can be a bit of a process if you don’t have all of the tools and necessary items at the ready. With a plinth light kit, you can get all of the pieces of the light fixture you need in one place, streamlining the installation process and cutting down on the time that it takes.
