Where Can You Have Backlit Countertops?
If you want backlit countertops for your home, the three most popular places to put them are in the kitchen, the bar, or the bathroom. All three of these places are prime areas to set a soothing mood that only backlit countertops can provide.
In the kitchen, you can put a backlit countertop in your center island. The island will become a source of light that you can keep on in the dark that will make your kitchen shine. With the lights on, it still becomes a fabulous centerpiece in the room that creates a soothing, warm effect.
Having the countertops lit also makes for a better workspace when you are cooking. The backlight gives you better light to see clearer and work without the risk of low light or insufficient light causing an injury.
The best use of a backlit countertop in the bathroom is in the sink area. A lot of bathrooms are designed for their lighting to be over the sink or high up on the ceiling and that causes your image in the mirror to be lit terribly. Overhead light shines down on the tops of our heads causing for the appearance of darkness around the eyes that is not really there. Mirror lighting causes for there to be too much of a concentration of light on just our faces. But with backlit countertop lighting, you can be lit from the side, the bottom, and the top simultaneously. Therefore you can see all of your face in soft light so you can always look your best.
The LED lights will be placed under the sink and around the sink to give you the best possible lighting situation. The backlit countertop also gives your bathroom a serene vibe when your guests or yourself are in there. No one wants to go into a bathroom that is harshly lit.
There is no better way to get people around the bar than to have it backlit. You can not only light up underneath the bartop, but you can also light up the bar itself. People can stand or sit around your bar and it can be lit up in golden hues that will make it easy for you to dim the lights and create a great, dark vibe in the room that will make people feel like they are out at the chicest spot in town.
