Last night I was reminded why my husband and I need to invest in some decent nighttime lighting in our kitchen. I snuck downstairs for a late night “healthy” snack when I caught my foot on the baker’s rack near the door.
One torn toenail later, my husband laughed as I indignantly took my jar of peanut butter and limped to bed.
Soft lighting is an important investment for more than just snacking. Advances in lighting mean ugly fluorescents will no longer be the only full room light in any room. Options in soft, LED lighting on the tops of cabinets (known as “Over the counter” lighting) and lighting for backsplashes (“Under the counter”) mean more efficient, sustainable lighting that won’t burn a hole in your electric bill.
- One of the greenest lighting options, certain LED lamps save so much energy they pay for themselves in as little as 18 months.
- Certain LED lamps can last up to 25 years, so you replace them far less often.
- LED lamps use absolutely no hazardous materials, making them safe for any room and also easy to dispose of.
Advanced Electrical also offers xenon lighting for your home. “These lights are brighter and cooler than a halogen light,” said Tobias Sommer of AES. “These lights give you the options of dimming and using them ask task lighting so you don’t have to light up the entire house.”
