How to : Illuminated Shelving Ideas
Following on from yesterday’s post, it’s clear that having extra storage in the form of shelving is a handy fixture in any home. Decorative items, sentimental photos and everyday domestic items can be stored or displayed in an appealing fashion. Take storage one step further by adding light to your shelving feature or even better, choose an illuminated shelf.
There are a few options to choose from when it comes to lighting up your shelves and ledges.
Install recess flat lights underneath shelving and cabinets to give a glow over surfaces. This is a practical benefit but also helps with safety in the kitchen area. Check out our Angri Round 19D White LED Recessed Flat Light, also available in Blue.
Strip lighting is another option that is affordable and so simple to use, just attach to the underside of your shelf to create an illuminated feature. Choose between a subtle white glow or a fun colour changing option. These wonderful little gadgets contain from 150 to 300 individual LED’s and can be programmed to give a faded or strobe lighting effect.
