Great lighting can make a dramatic difference in your kitchen, and you don’t have to break the bank. These four low-cost lighting ideas will give your kitchen a cozy glow—and help you navigate those midnight snack trips.
1) Illuminate cabinets with LED rope lighting.
LED rope lighting provides a gentle light that illuminates the inside of cabinets, or provides a soft glow when installed above upper cabinetry. The lights come in a variety of colors, are easy to install, and fit into small budgets.
2) Add stick-on light under cabinets.
Stick-on lights are the most budget-friendly way to brighten up dark work spaces under cabinets, in drawers and dark pantries, or above a sink. They take just seconds to install, and can be easily removed if you’re renting.
3) Add dimmable cabinet lighting.
If you like the option of leaving lights on low for those middle of the night water refills and snack trips, consider dimmable lights under the cabinets. This LED 3-pack comes at an affordable price, and easy installation instructions.
4) Update dated fixtures.
Tired of staring at an ugly ceiling light fixture from the eighties that came with the home? No problem. There are hundreds of budget friendly fixtures like these pendant lights with an industrial feel that come in at under $20.
