Top advice before buying white LED strip lights for your kitchen!
In today’s vlog, we’re going to look at some great tips for using white LED lights in your kitchen.
Which colour to use
This is down to personal preference. However, if you are unsure, then a good tip is to check out the colour temperature of your LED / halogen downlights in the room and go for the same colour!
If you do not have downlights or are unsure on colour, or if you really want to try something new, the safest and most popular colour is 4000k neutral white. This has no blue or warm tint to it, and shows the true colours of your room / paint / cupboards.

How to wire:
Most cost effective and simple installation option: wire all areas that you want to switch on / off together back to one single power supply.
