Too much light will not help in cooking. After all, it hurts the eyes, a person gets tired quickly. As a result, there is irritability. A cooking in this mood will give delicious results. Types of illumination of the working area:

  • natural. Window, balconies, other sources from the street. The intensity of the light depends on the brightness of sunlight, window size, such as curtains.
  • general lighting. Is any source located in the traditional location - the center of the ceiling. It will provide background lighting, but it is sometimes not enough, as the lighting unit is behind the person who is cooking, resulting in products that cut, cleaned or treated by other methods, poorly illuminated.
  • Point or accent lighting. This is a great local lighting solution. It is considered most economical for this LED lights in the kitchen. It provides the necessary light output, fits well into the interior, and it can be installed without any problems personally.

What is LED lighting?

LED lights - is a convenient variant of the decision of the zonal lighting in the kitchen. The main element that provides lighting - LED tape. Recent are semiconductors that emit light when passing through them of electric energy. The brightness of the emission will depend on the chemical composition. In order to use the tape could be a long time, it must only be connected through a special transformer unit.

The advantages of this type of coverage include:

  • It is resistant to the effects of different genus.
  • Durable. Just the fact: this band is capable of working 15 hours a day for at least 14 years, maybe more.
  • The color scheme highlights huge. White or red, orange or green, maybe blue or purple? Custom colors are used for decoration, not for lighting, look great as the illumination of the ceiling. The most original embodiments are LED ribbons with ultraviolet or infrared luminescence spectrum.

  • The tape does not need to be warmed up, it gives from the start of a bright light.
The advantage of the LED - instant on at full brightness. They have no effect, familiar to many on"ксеноновому" свету - длительное время разгорания

    Tip! Use LED strip warm lighting spectrum in the classical kitchen interiors. Solutions minimalist direction or high tech It looks better in a cold spectrum.

    Materials and tools for the backlight assembly

    In addition to the tape itself, which can be bought in a specialized shop of lighting equipment for installation need:

    1. PVA cable, section 0.5, often only a couple of tens of centimeters, but stores such volumes do not sell if no residues will take 1 m.
    2. Power Supply. It is needed to convert the current. His choice is to pay particular attention, because of the proper selection of power depends on the durability of the types of lighting. Power margin must be, but do not affect the overall dimensions of the transformer. Perform calculations for it is possible, from the length of LED strip and its type. For example, for a tape with a capacity of 5050 SMD 12 should be chosen so transformer: tape length is multiplied by 12 W, but need a small power margin - resulting figure is multiplied by a factor 1.25. According to the results and need to pick up power supply.

      Tip! You can use the work, but the unnecessary charge from the laptop if it meets the necessary power.

    Initially should measure the length needed for the installation. For this purpose under the bottom hinged lockers need to measure, on what area is planned gluing tape. If you purchased a tape in the reel, it has a standard length of 5 m. On it is necessary to measure the desired length and cut.

    Important! Cut LED strip can be of any type only on labels, otherwise it will not function.

    After cutting extreme contacts laid bare by the silicone casing, they will be needed for soldering or connecting connectors. Connect the wire to tape it better by soldering. for fixing points are marked + and -. This method is more reliable, though a bit time consuming. The use of detachable connectors fraught contact erosion and fire.

    Do not turn on the backlight at least a few hours after installation! During warm-up, it can come off and the glue dries. Fix it will not succeed

    The next stage - the insulation compound using electrical tape or heat shrink tubing. Insulating tape - the usual option and explain how to use it, it is not necessary. The new and more convenient solution is to heat shrink tube - it provides better appearance and higher quality seals the connection. I need to buy a tube with a diameter slightly larger than your connection, cut them, put on a contact and heat the building hairdryer. Due to the influence of hot air and the material shrinks tightly encloses the docking location.

    Mounting of the tape is carried out directly with the Kitchen Cabinet, at its lower part. Location tape depends on the size of the working surface. Optimally to make two lines of illumination:

    1. Under the wall itself.
    2. In the middle or on the edge of the cabinet.

    If the tape is not self-adhesive, use double sided tape. It is first necessary to secure on the tape, and after degreasing, carefully removing the protective layer, adhered to a selected portion.

    Before applying the tape should be thoroughly degreased surface. Pay particular attention that needs to be done under the slab, if the tape will be held and there

    Near the place where the tape is adhered, must be assigned transformer. Wires were attached to the first stage of the belt, is connected to the network 220 is through a transformer. And it is already included in the socket by means of a plug.
