Don’t think that adding lights to your toe-kicks is a frivolous aesthetics-only decision. Strip lighting at the underside of base cabinets is a great way to create a night light that looks fabulous.
It’s important to understand that even on a sunny summer day natural light from a single window is not always sufficient to thoroughly light a room and of course this is especially true come nighttime. Additional light sources near your window will allow you to subtly fill out the light scheme and achieve a balance so the space feels beautiful at any time.
A perfectly lit room has three basic layers: overhead lighting task lighting and accent lighting. This bedroom pulls all those together — the chandelier for overhead bedside reading lamps as task lighting and accent lights above the headboard and artwork.
