How can I use my LED tape in the kitchen?
Kitchens come in many shapes and sizes, and LED tape lighting may not be suitable for every one. But if you can use kitchen LED lights, they will give you stunning feature effects or fantastic general lighting with low running costs.
Here are some of the most common places that you can install LED tape in your kitchen to great effect.
Adding plinth LED lights to your kitchen can create a stunning feature effect. InStyle LED can cut and solder your kitchen LED lights to the specific lengths that you need for your installation. We can even solder in link-cables between lengths of LED tape, so you can install around plinth corners and other obstacles.
Because plinth LED lights tend to be softer and less bright than your main lighting, we usually recommend our 5-watts per metre single-colour LED tapes. We can supply 5-watt tape in warm white, pure white, red, green, blue or amber colours from our warehouse. If you want colour-changing kitchen LED lights instead, we recommend our 7.5-watt tapes (choose from 12V or 24V, depending on the length of LED tape you require). These brighter kitchen LED lights will work best when hidden behind the plinth – so you can just see the light from the LEDs rather than the tape itself, giving a stunning halo glow.
Be careful if you have shiny kitchen tiles because they can work as a mirror, showing the individual LED ‘dots’ of your hidden plinth LED lights shining down onto them.
See the pictures below, which show stunning under-plinth lighting results using our warm white 5W LED tape.
