Five ideas for plinth lights

There is a lot more to led plinth lights than kitchen plinths and under cupboard lighting. Although under kitchen cabinet lighting appears to be a favourite when it comes to indoor led lighting, led strip lighting and kitchen plinth lights lend themselves to a range of other applications. In addition, led outdoor lights can be used in many ways. This article details out five ideas for plinth lights.

Light strips in the kitchen

Along with providing great under counter lighting, light strips also create a great look when used as kitchen cupboard lights. Whether placed inside or above a cupboard, they will provide discrete lighting while at the same time highlighting an area such as that special collection of China in the Welsh dresser. Lighting up work areas and natural flooring Placed below a wall-mounted cupboard, they will sufficiently light up a worktop without the need for glaring ceiling lights. Natural stone or wood flooring look even better when highlighted with plinth lighting.

Other indoor uses

In the living room, led under cabinet lighting may be just the thing to light up the drinks cabinet and get those decanters and crystal glasses sparkling. With additional plinth lights scattered around the room, a warm and relaxed atmosphere is easily created.
Nightlights Why not use low-energy plinth lighting as nightlights for hall, stairs and landing? This is particularly useful when young children or guests who are unfamiliar with the layout of the house need to visit the bathroom during the night.
In the bathroom The majority of plinth lights are generally water proof, making it possible to use them in the bathroom. The indirect light provided by lights set in the skirting will make that long soak even more enjoyable.

Using plinth lights outdoors

Nearly all led lighting companies provide a range of led decking lights. These may not only be used as outdoor patio lights but are equally useful when they are set up as driveway lights.
Outdoor party lighting Placed around decking, different colour plinth lights create a discrete, yet fun party atmosphere without attracting every insect for miles straight into party-goers' drinks. Highlighting garden features Water features such as ponds or fountains in particular benefit from plinth lighting. Round plinth lights are perfect to highlight lily-pads on sparkling water while square lights are best used to complement a modern style fountain.
